No projector's here. The cut-off is still VERY good with just the HIDs, thanks in part to how the Yaris headlights are designed. (I could explain, but I have posted this already before)

thanks for the diy

with hid's and drl's, the drl is connected to the parking brake. so as long as the parking brake is up, the drls are not activated when you turn the car on. you could always turn the car on, then lower the parking brake thus activating the drl's and hid's in your case, no?

It would work on start up, but then you would still need to FIRST turn the car off, then turn off the lights... ebrake on or off, had no effect when shutting car off.. lights would still flicker, which is bad, i repeat VERY BAD for HIDs and the Ballasts!!!

Instead of all the hokey pokey do this, do that, I spent the 5 mins and disabled them for good.. or until you simply plug the DRL Relay back in.

You're not a dork.. you want what you want. Thats fine.

If you read the post, you will find the reason for ME needing to disable the DRL's is because you can't run an HID system without it disabled.

I still have my headlights on, day or night when Im driving.

Thx for the tips of diabling the daily headlight for yaris...I absolutely try before I got my HID installed...!!!

Some of my friends helped me to disable my daily driveing light on my STI before (since I have HID on), but they also helped me to bypass the Fog light so I can still have the fog lights on during the daily driving, and there is no problem from insurance or cops...

Since I got my yaris, is there any chance to diable the Driving headlights but I can turn on the Fog light during the daily driving? I am not a tech guy and hope someone can have any idea to do so...

Removing DRL is highly illegal in Canada. One of my best friend's mother get an heavy ticket because her DRL stop working by themselve because of a DRL burned relay. She drive a 2001 Nissan Sentra (base model, sand color) and this is not the kind of car the police are looking for at first. But she simply go doing her grocery, then come back at home with an heavy ticket she she absolutely DON'T KNOW her DRL stop working. That freakin' DRL module is really expensive to replace too! Very bad day for her.

Just my 2¢

Lucky for us, there are NO laws for DRL's in the US.

Keep in mind... This mod also disables the "Brake" light warning that you have when your parking brake on.

It was the same on a VW I had. The DRL relay also supplies power to the parking brake warning light when the ignition is on.
