The corning lights don't work like cornering lights in any repro. The car has to be be programmed for them to operate as such. Only the cars that come with the actual projectors would have that ability.

So, the cornering lamp would, in actuality, be a light that runs as a big parking light. That doesn't look good.

Even if it would have come wired to operate, I would have cut it.

It is right below the driver's side windshield. Simply take the plastic fuse box cover off and, viola, fuses! I think it says fuse box on it. But I'm not 100% sure about that.

Ah, got it! I was having some trouble removing the cover, then I realized I was attacking the clip on the wrong side.

Did you bother to unplug the battery when you were working with the fuses for the DRLs? The negative terminal seems to be buried deep into the cowl, and it seems like a hassle.

At 10 amps, it doesn't seem very powerful. And power mirrors don't seem that deadly. But then again, I don't know anything about electricity.

Yes, that is always advisable. The negative terminal is located on the upper strut well.
