Locate a live feed

I have a 1999 slk230 and want to fit day running lights in the UK
I`ve tried to locate a live feed when the ignition is turned on but am failing badly.
I`m 66 disabled but not stupid and don`t want a hole in my bulkhead.
Can someone please help.
Regards and HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!


Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.




If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message)- capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.

Ok..............I`ve completed what I had to do. For other members it was very easy.
The live ignition feed is on the second 8mm terminal underneath the fuse box. I connected with a fork terminal ran the lead down the nearside of the engine compartment and joined to the two positive leads on the daytime driving lights. The earth lead was connected to an existing bolt near the engine strut but not on it. (there`s plenty there to connect to).
I super glued the light fittings as near as I could to the fog lights.
Next is Angel eyes.
Thanks all............I hope this helps others.
Merry Christmas.

I've very recently asked this very same question, but because of your kindness in detailing your findings, I've got the answer I needed from your thread!
So you DID help others! Thanks!
