Hi guys,
i just picked up a pair of depos with angel eyes and i just cant seem to get the angel eyes working. the headlights/highbeems all work fine but the angel eyes havent even lit up once. i've checked other posts for how ppl have wired them and i still havent figured it out. any help would be great

Did you wire them to your corners or fogs? Is the positive and negative correct? Are they plugged into the inverters?

the inverters are the little box with wires sticking out.

you connect the inverter to the power source, and connect the other side of the converter to the angel eyes.

you cant hook up the angel eyes directly to the power source

^^^ Exactlly. But make sure you're wires from the inverter to the corners are plugged in right. There's 2 wires and the corners have 3.. If I have time today(I'm at work) I'll go take a peek at mine..

Here you go..

Here is how mine are wired..

Passengers side wires coming out of the inverter..

Brown is going into Brown(on Corner Light)
Grey is going into Grey/Yellow(on corner light)

Drivers side wires coming out of the inverter..

Brown is going into brown(on the corner light)
Grey is going into Grey/Purple(on the corner light)

Hope this solves your problem
