One thing I noticed at 8:15 into the video, he mistakenly said the black and red wires are for the DRL and the blue wire is for the puddle light. Th black and red wires are the negative and positive leads for the puddle light and the blue wire is the positive lead for the DRL. The DRL negative lead is shared with the turn signal light and is already plugged into the signal light connector in the mirror assembly.

In the video, the blue DRL wire is tapped into the purple wire (terminal #5 Violet). Terminal #5 is what is important if its wire is not purple. Tap into terminal #5. Keep in mind the connector is upside down in the video. Refer to the diagram below:

92228


This diagram is from the 2016 service manual and I would expect your wire color to be the same, however it's the terminal position that is important for a proper connection. My 2018 front power window motor connector has the same wire colors as 2016.

As far as the puddle light goes, if you look at the video while he's mucking around with the power window wiring connections, you will see directly below where he's working, two wires heading down to the courtesy light. One wire is red (power) and the other is yellow (ground). I didn't want to bunch up three Posi-Taps on the power window connector, so I connected the black puddle light wire to the yellow ground wire and the red puddle light wire to red wire.

Finally hooked the (Black/White wires) puddle lights into the courtesy lights and everything works. I would recommend this modification. Next is LED emblem.

The problem is the service manual and EWD (electronic wiring diagram) are two completely separate pieces of literature. The service manual should have simplified wiring diagrams for that specific circuit and will direct you what to check in that circuit for whatever issue or concern you're looking at but the EWD is where its gonna contain all your in-depth information like pin and terminal layouts, wire colors, more in-depth circuit diagrams as well as the entire circuit schematic rather than just the specific fault circuit theyre wanting you to check.

There should be an accessory harness pigtail you can buy for each right and left side body harness that plug into a premade existing connector right there at the corner kickpanels. This supplies all the accessory circuits you would need for whatever accessories you install. What sort of circuit you looking for, just power and ground?

Hmm. The Q50 service manual I have has wiring diagrams, connector types, wire colors and pinouts as well as testing procedures.

To some degree, and realistically there should be enough of the information in the service manual that will get 99% of the people by. Trust me if you got a hold of the EWD you'd see the difference.

That I couldn't answer for you. Tbh I don't think there's a way you could. I'm not gonna say I work for Nissan or Infiniti, I definitely don't have my own access, and that's definitely how I don't know these things. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: "Proprietary information." If you PM specific questions though I'm sure i can help a little more.

Copy that.

I was real hot on getting sequential turn signals till I found no place within 200 miles that would do it.

More time and work for me than I'm able or willing to undertake. They do look fantastic.

If I can do it, it isn't that complicated. I'm glad I changed them. They do look cool.

You guys are really tempting me to add these! Lol
You already have the lighted emblem so these will compliment it. They are somewhat a safety item due to the bright puddle lights and Daytime Running Lights DRL that light up dark areas when parked. They have a cool Knight Rider (Circa 80s for the kids) blinking sequence when turning on and off like they are communicating with you.

I'm surprised. You have a lot of other cool bits.
The signal lights would just be more stuff sitting in boxes in his garage like the rest of the mods he bought.

I think they are an improvement to the stock turn signals and worth the money. I recommend them but they are somewhat of a pain to install unless you just want to go with the sequential turn signals only and don't want to bother with the DRLs or puddle lights. Then it's a quick 15 minute job where you only have to pop the mirror cover off and swap the lights. No taking the door panel and mirror assembly off to snake the wires for the DRLs and puddle lights into the door for termination.

I'm seeing a fairly wide price range for these on eBay, from 89.99 all the way to 189.99. How is one to suppose to tell the difference between V1 and V2, or are they all the same? Looking to purchase the smoked lense option.
