Default Enabling DRL

I live in Sweden where DRL is mandatory. However, my 1995 Bonneville SSE that I imported from Texas, is not equipped with DRL:*. Or seat heaters

Is there any easy and well known way to install DRL on my type of car?

I figured that GM has a DRL module that might work, but not on a Bonneville with Driver Information, which I have. I also figured that the Canadian version has factory installed DRL:*. Iíve search the net and came up with www.sav-a-life.com that offers DRL for the aftermarket. Anyone who have tried these or know of a good solution?

Regards,
Sebastian

Welcome to the club!

I'm moving this to Electrical for you. You'll get better exposure in that forum.

The Sav-a-life unit is probably similar to the one that JC Whitney is offering. I have no idea how this will effect your Driver Info system.
