Awesome! Thanks so much! I'm doing the install of my DDL's.I'm planning on doing a write up afterwards. I can't wait, cause I checked to ensure they work and damn are they bright. Should look really good afterwards. I'll keep you posted and provide feedback for the forum. Pictures to follow

I looked at both sides and opted for the battery-side grommet. It's very clean, easy, looks like it belongs there, and it is protected by the battery box for the purpose of this discussion. It looks like this when it is done, pop off the cover and surrounding plate and the job gets really easy.

And I didn't use lube. I stuck something stiff in the hole to stretch it out a bit while I snaked it.

It is optional however it makes it much easier.

It sounds like there should be a fuse or a circuit beaker blown somewhere.

I'll be doing mine soon. So far I've used a fish tape to run wires, has worked well. Might add a little vaseline if it's too tight. ;-)

Regardless looks like the spot behind the battery is the easiest. Assume I just need to pull the battery out to see it?

You can pull the battery or take the trim around the battery cover off (see some of the steering lock fuse removal DIYs).

The shop should be held responsible...they should have insurance to cover any issues resulting from an install that they performed. Don't listen to any other flim flam...I would contact the owner of the shop or store manager to get it resolved asap.

Then tell them you want all labor free for your inconvenience ...or you will talk to your retained attorney..that should get a rise out of them...lol seriously though, I'd be looking for some payback on this one.
