Yes, it works with any dual filament bulb on any vehicle regardless of make, model or year.

Re: parking light delete?

I tried to get my turn signal bulbs out without removing the panel in the wheel well but my hands are too big. So then I removed the panel and still couldn't get the bulb out of the housing from underneath. Tried twisting it but I guess I'll need to get gloves for better grip or something.

Re: parking light delete?

It is a little odd to get out but if you wiggle a bit after you turn it comes out. Also the wire isnt very long so you have to flip it over as soon as it come out of the socket

LAST NIGHT.... I HAD THIS DREAM THAT I WAS A MUFFLER AND THEN THIS MORNING.... WHEN I WOKE UP.... I WAS EXHAUSTED.

What is a parking light delete and why would you do it?

Re: parking light delete?

It will make it so that your running lights (amber) aren't on when the low beams are on, but it will still work when you use your turning signal. I have yellow fogs and 6000k HID's so the running light delete would clean up the look a bit leaving just the fogs/lows on.

Re: parking light delete?

So I forgot to take a pic of the actual bottom of the bulb but it isn't like the one shown here at http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=124216.0

It's rectangular with 3 copper strips. Not sure if it'd be alright for me to put electrical tape over any of these but maybe I'll try tomorrow.
