  6. 2015 CR-V EX-L/Navi : Where best to tap wires?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I'm thinking of adding some additional daytime running lights (mostly because my "auto" low beams don't come in as early as I think they should). I need access to "accessory" and "low beam" (so they dim when your low beams come on). I was thinking of using some of those "add a fuse" fuse...
