Hello, everyone

I plan to add DRL to my C3 (2003) and want to ask if anyone of you can help me identifying a switched fuse, so I can splice into it, or rather piggy back off of it with one of these

I know that a Multimeter could help identify a switched fuse, but I am not savvy with it much. I plan to use the fuse box under the hood.

Thanks for the help!

Hello,

yes, I know about those topics, but my DRL has a different mounting system, below is a schematic on how it must be wired.
So I must splice the yellow wire to front position lights and the red wire to the switched fuse, that is why I need to identify one

You can find the diagrams for the early cars, with wire colours and plugs in the green haynes manual
