I am trying to put in Spec D Tuning Projector headlamps into my car, I have followed all the instructions and cannot get a few of my lights to work. In troubleshooting the issue, I found that my DRL's are not working - which would explain why a few of the lights do not work. Yet, I cannot figure out what is causing my DRL's to stop working. Can you please help me troubleshoot what could be causing the DRL's to stop working?

Check you rfuses and relays underhood. You may have inadvertenly caused a fuse to blow after installation of your profjector headlamps. They are all in the underhood fuse box

We are looking there, but the chilton's manual states the DRL relays are in the engine compartment but the fuse for the DRL is in the junction box on the interior of the car, but the diagrams for the boxes are different in numbers from the diagrams I have in my car. We checked the tail lights and they are out as well, letting us know for sure it is a blown fuse/relay. Our problem is how we figure out the discrepancy in the numbering of the fuses. I guess we will just pull fuses and fix any that look bad. Is there a way to find out whether the relay is bad as well? Thank you so much for your quick response! :)

The drl rfuse is next to the headlight fuse. These shoudl be marked maybe on the inside cover of the fuse box. There are 3 relays for the drl. The talilight fuse is on the right side of the console in the junction box.
