Which wire to tap into?

I'm about to splice into my side marking lights in order to have my halos come on with parking lights... i have 2 wires to choose from. A white with green stripe or white with yellow stripe. Anyone know which one to use?

better get your test light out but if I recall correctly the one with green stripe is the turn signal wire .

Should be the white/yellow wire. It was black/yellow on earlier models.

The plan is piggyback a fuse from the under hood fuse box for power. As soon as I plug the piggyback into the fuse box the halos come on and stay on(no key in ignition). I tried the accessories, horn and fog light fuses, same thing. Wondering why the fuse box is hot with no key in ignition? Any thoughts on the subject?

Just use a relay... Relay can be powered by the wir eyou have to the fuse box... then when you turn side lights on the relay will trip and bring on those other lights... Could put a switch in so you have control
