Rob, Bob, Keith. Didn't at least one (and maybe all) of you have it set up so the DRL's are on with the outside projectors during low beam operation? Looked cool and was wondering if there a way to do that with my lights.

It has to do with pulling a pin on the drl module.

I put a pic on the forum somewhere.

So it just stops the DRL's from turning off with the low beams, but they still go full for the high beams? Thats fantastic!

Correct. Super easy to do. We put a modified module in my car on Thursday morning.

Wow, no kidding. Where's this module located? I might just pull this for the hell of it, I can use the extra lighting oomph during the dark and wet months.

sounds great but are both headlight on the same fuse? (dont remember from top of my head) and if so could that cause some current overload?

The DRL module is in the cabin fuse box. Large black box (or hole if you don't have DRL's).

Haha, same exact background. That is one of the favorite picture spots on the boardwalk.

... certainly wasn't me who had that setup. I don't have DRLs... yet. 2015 plan on that. ;)

Yes, I don't have the DRLs myself, I'll have to see if I can dig up a module in the junkyard when I go for a center console bezel. I did dig out some nuggets of info for this thread:
99300mricva wrote:Purchase 1 Daytime Running Lights Module:
Part # P04602229AC ( Available in the B/S/T area usually)
Open Drivers side door and remove fuse box cover and locate fuse box.

Remove White Plug Harness [headliner connector] (Top Center of Pic):
Insert module in rear most position of fuse box. It only fits in one place.
Reinstall headliner connector (for overhead lights/OTIS power)
Replace fuse box cover.
Start Car and check that HIGH BEAM lights are ON at about 50% power.
Obviously, if you don't have the DRL module, you'll need to buy one or dig one out of a yard.

It is done by removing one of the pins.

If you look at the second picture it shows the six pins.

In that picture it is the bottom left pin that has to be removed.
Sadly most of the pics for this mod are gone.

Is it squeeze the tab on the other side just like one on the outer side.
Or pull the tab on the other side
Or is it something completely different.
I know you are not. It is a pain. You need to make a tool thinner than your fingers to get back there and release the rear clip. Usually that would be something thin and stiff bent 90 degrees long enough to catch the top of the clip. Then to pull on the tool which squeezes the clip.
Bent metal stock, perhaps?
