    You can buy sensor so that the lamps come on with the ignition and go off when the headlamps come on. The fuse box is the only real place and take them from an ignition live buss bar

    Most kits come with the required module, some of the newer ones have it incorporated in the light units themselves, neat. All come with instructions! ;)

    I used one of these.

    Dead simple. No need to find an ignition switched feed - just wire directly across the battery (preferably with a fuse in the live side), connect the DRLs, tap one wire into the sidelight live feed and the DRLs come on when you switch on the ignition, off when you turn on the sidelights or turn off the ignition.
