If you give us make and model of your car it will be more easy to answer you.
Or locate power to ignition coil. This is "line 15 IGNITION 1".
Or power after fuel pump relay.

Thanks Daniel It is a 2004 tacuma . I have found a cable ( by an endless "game" of checking each wire) it is a power supply to the engine control relay. I have spliced into it and the driving lights are perfect with NO faults or problems to any other accessories. It is fuse controlled so if a problem was to occur the fuse is the first line of defence. Sorry for not getting back sooner but I had NOT set the "inform by email" Thanks again my friend. Ivor
