Just curious...why do you have to make a jumper? What would happen if you didn't?
If you didn't install the jumper, the left high beam would not have its ground in normal high beam operation and would be dark. The jumper is replacing a normally closed contact in the DRL relay. If you have perimeter lighting, you only lose the DRL function (because the DRL relay is not there), the parking lights & back up lights still illuminate.
Edit: Ensure jumper is installed between terminal 30 & 87a (vice 87)
Your auto lights still come on once it'* dark or dusk, whenever it is the sensor decides to kick on. The closest i can get to driving with the lights off is turning the light **** to the middle position and having the fogs off which leaves me driving with just the corner lights.
I just really don't like the daytime running lights because i don't like the way they look. If i think i need my lights on during the day i would rather just turn them on myself. Other than that the DRL'* are just shortening the life of my high beams. DRL'* are required in Canada?
Umm. DRL is a very good safety feature IMO, there are alot of cases where I have almost been in an accident because I couldn't see the other car like if it is dusk and the sun is in my eyes, snowing, raining, etc. I ALWAYS drive with my lights on at all times, do you guys just like having the choice or something? Seems sort of pointless otherwise.
Yeah, I'm all about having the OPTION of controlling my lights. If it'* ever rainy, foggy, or sometimes even cloudy, I'll run my projector fogs as "DRL'*." I think it looks way more stealthy that way. Only downside is that the interior lights on the dash are dimmer.
