Default Parking/Daytime Lights????

OK, I did a forum search and nothing turned up. Anybody know how to rewire the parking lights to function as daytime running lamps?? I just installed my switchback yesterday.

Why do you need to rewire anything just turn them on and off

He probably wants them to come on when he starts the ignition and turn off when he shuts it down.

It's too much trouble to remember to turn the parking lights on every time you start the Machine.

Personally, I don't know why daytime running lights are not required in the U.S.

I believe in being more visible with lights whether in sunny conditions, rain or the dead of night.

I've been turning them on. I just think it would be convenient not to have to do that. Also, it would be beneficial when the auto lamps do not turn on and you are using wipers, cause in NYS you can get a ticket

I dont see the point of DRL except the audi's cause they look good like you cant see a car in the day light, and I dont know if its a law but if your wipers are on your lights are on common sense and at night of course your lights are on thats why most cars come on automaticly, it just seems like a waste of time to go out of the way to rewire something when all you have to do is turn a knob and the car lets your know to turn them off when you are getting out and they are still on, i dont know thats just me

I'm sure not everyone remembers to turn the headlights on when it is raining, I'm 100% positive wifey doesn't and she carts my kids around with her. I do, cause I don't want another ticket. And there's tons of morons on the road that might see the car with this mod. I think DRL's are a nice safety feature and would like to know if anyone has done it or knows how?

You can just try to tap into the positive of the parking light to a 12v source that comes on when the car is running that should work

A piece of tape over the sun sensor in the dashboard will make the headlights come on all the time when in the auto position.

Thinking about it, seems like whatever wire acts as the switch in the parking light position could be jump wired to complete the circuit, and hypothetically wouldn't harm the switch, it would just be completing the circuit before it gets to the switch, I think this may be what you were referring to 6blak, correct me if I'm wrong? (remember not that electronically inclined, just speaking from basic knowledge) Any wire diagrams out there or know how to test each wire without hacking everything up? Continuity tester maybe? I got one of those for the house

Okay so I been poking around trying to figure out how to do this? It seems a little more complicated than my original thought. The headlight switch (combination switch) is routed through the IPDM (Intelligent Power Distribution Module), from what I can see from the FSM this is where the power comes from. Jsmith how the heck is it done?

FYI: During my search I came across this for all that are interested

Thanks for the mention PhantomMax.
So I actually just tapped my Canada DRL that I added into the OEM parking lights.
But, I did just hook up my halos on my truck to run as a DRL. I just grounded one end and ran the other end to and empty fuse that I found in the fuse box. It was the only one that powered on and off with the key. But for your purposes, the blinker part being integrated might cause an issue not sure...

But my DRL looked like this:

Default Re: Parking/Daytime Lights????

The BCU and IPDM work together to make all of the exterior lights function with the exception of the reverse and brake lights. The combination switch connects to the BCU then via data lines it communicates with the IPDM telling it what lights to turn on. I thought about setting my parking lights up so that they came on automatically when the car is not in park. If you don't mind cutting a few wires and putting in a relay then i can tell you how to do it. Ill throw an idea or two at you later tonight or tomorrow when i have more time if you want.
