    I know many of you have this issue, and wanted to know if anyone has made a solution. When upgradeing to HID/LED you DRL which is your high beam run at top brightness all the time, so i just keep it off on the headlight control no big deal. However, when i turn on my lights i end up flashing everyone, and the large pain in the rear is when i want to use my parking lights my high beams are on. I know the work around to turn off the truck engage parking brake then turn it back on, but that just gets old fast. So i was wondering how to disable the drl? I also have the Auer 2 in 1 drl fogs which run on a diffrent button, so i dont think that would be affected by the main drl wiring, but i could be wrong, so if the wiring gurus could chime in on that. Thanks

    It's the second tab from the right as the plug is facing you.

    I know this is an old thread but....
    I want to be able to run DLR, but with the marker lights only, not the highbeams.
    Does bending this tab just disable the highbeam part of the DLR?
    I like being able to run my marker lights, or my marker lights with my fog lights.

    Sorry if linking to this other forum is not allowed,
    but I found and explains this well, and yes, it does work.
    All bending pin 2 does is get rid of DLR, with no other effects to anything else.

    Now, I Just need to find a mod so that the fog lights stay on with the highbeams.
    (yes, I know, may not be legal in some states, blah blah blah,,, its personal preference)

    Thats to solve a differerent issue.
    Most LEDs and HIDs will flicker some with new vehicles that send a PWM signal to the lights.
    That module fixes that flicker. Has nothing to do with disabling the DRL or allowing them to come on at a lower power like they do in stock form.
    There are a couple modules out there for the LEDs that will make them come on dimmer for DRL, but you cant do that with HID.
