    Autoswitch & Denali aux lights

    Hi, electrical question. I picked up a set of Denali D2's on clearance to replace an aged set of piaa 1100X's.

    The piaa is controlled by the Autoswitch... Hold down turn signal to switch on and off. Which I like and want to keep.

    I want to control the Denali in the same way but I'm not sure how to wire it. Looking for some help please.

    I attached the wiring diagram for the autoswitch and the Denali aux lights.

    Why not use the existing Piaa lighting harness, just connect to the existing + and - terminations from the current lamp locations

    I thought about that until I looked closely at the Denali harness.... It has a controller box and wiring/functionality to accommodate dual intensity lighting. So not straight forward.

    One thing I'm contemplating is replacing the on-off switch on the Denali harness with wiring straight to the autoswitch. (Leaving the turn signal trigger wiring to the autoswitch as-is. Not sure if it will work... But absent any responses here that's what I'm going to try

    Sounds about right, I mean all your doing is changing out your switch,(on/off), on the Denali harness

    Just closing the loop on this thread: replacing the switch on the Denali wiring harness with wiring to Autoswitch worked out great.

    Still getting life out of the Autoswitch, 15+ years later

    Too bad the little LED indicator on the Autoswitch harness gave up a couple years ago. Outside of this it's fully functional.
