Welcome to DRLsDirect! We are excited to show you how to install our RGBW™ LED boards on your Dodge Charger. With these boards, you can enhance your vehicle's daytime running lights (DRLs) by replacing the factory white LED panels with ones that feature RGBW chips. This upgrade allows you to control the color of your DRLs using a convenient remote control. 


Step 1: Opening the Headlight

To begin the installation process, you'll need to open the headlight and remove the lens. Opening the headlight on the Dodge Charger is relatively easy. The lens should pop right off with a gentle push.


Step 2: Removing the Black Bezel

Once the lens is removed, you'll notice the main black bezel held in place by screws. Look for two screws on one side and two on the other side of the bezel. These screws are typically T20 size. Use the appropriate bit to unscrew them. Keep the screws in a safe place for reassembly.

After removing the four screws, you can pull the black bezel off and set it aside. Now, you'll have a clear view of the factory LED panels inside the headlight.


Step 3: Removing the Factory LED Panels

Inside the headlight, you'll see two smaller LED panels on one side and one larger panel on the other side. Begin by removing one of the smaller LED panels. Use an AT-15 bit to unscrew the screws holding the panel in place. As you remove the screws, a black alignment piece and a hold-down bar will come off as well. Afterward, unclip the power connector wire from the panel.

Underneath the panel, you'll find another screw. Remove this screw, and the panel can be pulled directly off. The panel is held in place by a thermally conductive pad called a sill pad. It may require some effort to remove due to its adhesive nature, but with a firm pull, it should come off. Remove the white sill pad from the panel as well, as you'll need to reuse it.

Repeat the same process for the second small LED panel.


Step 4: Replacing the Factory LED Panels with RGBW LED Boards

Now that the factory LED panels are removed, it's time to install the DRLsDirect RGBW LED boards. Start by peeling off the fabric tape-like white sill pad from one of the new LED panels. Align the pad with the bottom of the LED panel, ensuring a perfect fit. The sill pad helps transfer heat from the LED chip to the aluminum heatsink. Press the LED panel down in the exact same position where the factory panel was.

Using the bigger screw with a larger top, fasten the LED panel in place. Take the bracket and place it over the LED panel, aligning it with the existing holes. The bracket should fit perfectly. Secure the bracket with screws, ensuring they are nice and firm but not overtightened. These screws go into the metal, securing the LED panel to the aluminum block.

Repeat the same process for the second small LED panel and the larger panel. Remember to remove the sill pad, place the RGBW board in 

position, and secure it with screws and the bracket.


Step 5: Wiring the RGBW LED Boards

Before proceeding with the wiring, check the factory wires and ensure they remain unplugged. Tuck them away to prevent interference during the resealing process.

Now, take the new braided wires that come with the RGBW LED boards and run them out behind the headlights through the dust cap. To create a path for the wires, you'll need to remove the dust cap and drill a small hole. For now, focus on running the wires out and tucking any slack out of the way.

Please note that the wiring harness may vary based on the specific version you received. Before installing the boards, double-check that the wires are correctly positioned. It might be easier to run the boards in first from the other end.


Step 6: Reinstalling the Black Bezel

With the wiring in place, it's time to reinstall the black bezel. Align the tabs on the bezel with the corresponding slots on the headlight housing. Once aligned, insert the screws and tighten them securely. Ensure that the bezel is firmly in place.


Step 7: Testing and Finalizing the Installation

Before sealing the headlight, it's crucial to test the RGBW LED boards to ensure they function correctly. To power the boards, you'll need to connect the included constant current regulators to the wires coming out of the headlight. Plug the drivers into an RGBW controller powered by a 12-volt signal. Scan the provided QR code on the backside of the RGBW controller, download the App and use your smartphone for endless customization options.

Upon testing, you'll see that the LED boards illuminate in a full range of multicolor options and also a bright white tone. The RGBW feature allows you to enjoy vibrant lighting effects. When you're ready to hit the road, simply set the desired color you want and enjoy every ride!
