I did the same damn thing many of times, also why I disabled my DRLs... also so I can have just my blue LED lights light the headlamp area with out the Headlamp being on

ok, a little bit of a flip of the topic, but would anyone consider sending/selling this module my way? feel free to PM me if so. :) i actually prefer DRL and wouldn't mind the insurance discount either. any reason why this wouldn't work on my sedan?

Your car needs to be pre-wired from the factory at least, to have the DRL's.

Maybe poke around online, and see. I remember all my BMWs came pre-wired for lots of things.

What Kelven HID's are those .. just curious. I have h4 from my old 240 but one ballast went bad (Philips). Now is there a switch to turn on and off the DRL's? I know in my girl's mother's Trailblazer, there is that option. If not, is there an online FSM that can let me know where the remote wire is so I can just create one without taking out the box?

Reason being is that I do like the idea of the DRL. This way I can just have the switch off and then after I start the car, turn them on.

Yeah yeah before i go you're probably asking yourselves why the hell is a Noob going to go through all of this when he can just pull out the box and do what Chris does? It's because I'd rather have just the headlights on (like DRL's) and them on only until I have to turn all of my lights on at night.

I know it may seem like a PIA job to go through all that but I like challanges >:)

DRL question!!

im actually wondering about its wiring could you just cut the wire going thru the drl should be just one of each side then re ground them and still ran it thru a separate bulb.. just a thought..it separates them from ur hid...

Then where would you mount an extra bulb at? Seems like a lot of trouble, to keep DRL's.

I drive during the day with my HIDs on, as its quite a little car we drive, and its bad enough A-Holes dont see you...

FYI they make high/low H4 HID kits.

I chose to go with only a low beam H4, and turn my fogs into high's like Violin did.

Nobodys advocating driving with your lights off. But to save your aftermarket HID's you must dissconnect the DRY relay. You can still switch your headlights on during the day if you want, your just not obligated to.

what about what I mentioned in the last page? Is there a way to just switch it instead .. I'd rather have the option of whether I want to have DRL's or not (comes in handy when trying to be stealth at night).

I don't know if anyone has figured that one out, but it wouldn't easy as it would involve fiddling inside the ECU.

Why not just run a line from a switched circuit to the fog lamps so they come on whenever the ignition is switched on? Use a blank circuit or trigger a relay from an existing circuit and run a wire (fused) from your battery.

Weird that your is different.
Sorry about that... I was wrong. When I saw the wire from the DRL relay to the parking brake in the wiring diagram, I assumed it was the same as my VW. In reality, the DRL's don't come on until the parking brake is disengaged. That's what the connection is for. Oops...

Easiest Mod My ASS!

There is a Metal bar that surrounds my DRL Relay… I put my hand in under it to pull out the White plug…

AND I FUCKING CUT MY THUMB… Pretty fucking deep too!

Now it seems all I need to do is droll on my-self a little

AAAAhhhdduuuuhhhhhhhhhh

But at least I got it!
