Hi all, so before I do some damage to my car I need your advice
I want to install this cool led turn signal strips

https://www.amazon.com/CARLITS-Flexi...s%2C251&sr=8-5

And since there is already a nice gap between hood and light (front and back) and they fit perfectly, but:

When the car is off everything is working perfectly but as soon I turn the engine on the voltage drops down (around 10v) and the strip is not working.

Do you have any ideas about how could I get stable 12v from turn signal. I am thinking to use relay but I am not sure...

there are few check-points
• the LED-s generate heat . . . maybe enough to melt some plastic materials (? inappropriate soldering Lead)
• modifications to your car need approval
• modifications to your car's electrical circuit may pose a fire danger not covered by insurance
• perhaps more
