First you must remove your headlights.  Your owners manual should be able to show you how to remove.

We'll start with the Right side (Facing the car) or Driver's Side.  Here you can see the headlight has been removed and we're looking at the plug.  There are a bunch of wires coming out of the plug, look for the BLACK wire with the WHITE stripe.

Here you can see we found the BLACK wire with WHITE stripe and spliced a wire to it.  This wire we spliced should be a long enough to reach a little further than the Side Markers.

Here you can see we've already removed the side marker.  The Black wire coming from the inside is the wire we spliced.  The BROWN wire is the ground wire for the side markers and we've cut that.  Make sure you don't cut it too close to the plug.  We're going to connect the Brown wire from the plug to the wire we've spliced.

Here we've connect the BROWN wire to the wire we've spliced.  I tucked the other half of the Brown wire into that plastic sleeve.

What I did was test everything before I taped it up.  Once I tested and everything worked I taped up the side marker wires and put everything back together.

Again, I tested everything first and the taped it up.  I used standard electrical tape to secure everything.  Here you can see the spliced wire all taped up.  To finish off I just put the headlights back on.

Here is the BLACK wire with GREEN stripe spliced with our wire.  Just repeat what you did on the other side and you're all done!
