DRL switchback help

Postby Tywhiteguy » Tue Jan 07, 2020 7:46 am

Hi all, I planned on getting the Audi style headlights but haven’t figured out how to convince my lady that I NEED them lol! Until then I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to wire in a drl switchback on the ES model. I tried this on my last car but couldn’t quite figure it out. Also, if that is out of the question how do I set up oem drls? because my base model does not come with them
Thank you in advance

From memory the indicator stalk had to be swapped out and the ETACS box modified

Easier way is to use the Parker lights as a trigger thru a relay to power up the DRL

Yah that’s how I have it now was wondering if there was a simple, clean fix. What about modifying the turn signals into switchbacks?

So I recently found a video on YouTube of someone who seems to have figured it out but it’s in russian and he doesn’t explain it very well. From what I understand it’s a regular oem connection with an added 12v constant from an acc fuse connected to the white part of the switchback led. https://youtu.be/vwHiD2jCAgY
Here’s the video, if anyone can give me an answer or even a hypothesis that would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
