Well... turn on head lights isn't exactly the same as DRL. DRL doesn't turn on tail lights and I really don't want to have my HID burning all day when I don't need them to see.STi_high said:i don't mean to be a smart ass but couln't you just turn on your lights when driving??
The DRLs are not the HIDs, they are just your yellow parking lights.Mister2cool said:I really don't want to have my HID burning all day when I don't need them to see.

Look through the electrical manual here:
hmm, that sucks.. I was thinking about using the high beam for DRL. Using parking light doesn't look right.
I said I didn't want to burn my HID because someone suggested just turn on headlight as DRL.
Absolutely true. For the cars that use the high beams at a lower wattage for DRL's, are they using a second bulb, or driving the HB bulb at a lower wattage? Is that done with a relay? I'm trying to think of what would be the easiest way to do this in a car that wasn't designed to do it from the factory. What do you think?CloNeGTS said:Unless you have the candle power to be an annoyance, it doesn't matter what beam you use.
That's weird because every DRL system I've seen runs the low beams at reduced power (that includes VW and Toyota). My pet peeve are the Chrysler minivans (among others) which use the orange parking lights as DRLs. Parking lights should be used as parking lights.CloNeGTS said:YBut yeah, every DRL system I've seen is just running the high beam at a lower wattage.
