No problem with DRL's as they only run the high beam (halogen bulb) at a pulsed voltage to produce half light output. Even work with LED's in the high beams but does produce a slight flicker at times.
Funny that my wife's 08 Sebring does not have DRL's and can not add them. It is actually a BCM program that turns them on and a dealer will not do it unless it is a Canadian car.
That's how my Journey was. I couldn't get high beams unless I had an inside man at the dealer. There was a salesman on the Journey forums (I believe he was also here when he owned an M, got a burnt orange Journey later on) who would add the sales code if you gave him the VIN, but then you needed to convince the your local dealer to flash the computer and turn it on. I never got around to it.
Only vehicle I've ever owned that had DRL was my Grand Prix, and I disabled it by unplugging the module in the dash after I installed a PnP HID kit (back in my wild and naive college freshman days). I thought about adding it to my blue car, but now I can't. If I did, it would run my shield solenoids at half power, which I suspect would make them run wonky and prematurely wear them out. No bueno. We've thought about adding it to the black car. Not sure on that yet.
