What are you asking to be needed wired in? DRL's should go to an ignition based fuse, like the windshield wipers or something (something that only gets power with the car on), everything else should be wired to the original headlight switch. I don't see anything here that would need to be wired to an ACC switch, like led lights or something.

I have some LED strips I would like to run along the top or bottom of the headlight as DRL's, but i was thinking to have just the HALO's and the LED strips come on once the car is started as DRL's. Making any sense?

Remember and fit resistors to the led wires if they are not already fitted. You will burn them out far too quick if you don't. Sadly I cant rember what ones to use though.
