Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

How hard would it be to add the daytime running light module (used in Canadian XKs) to a US XK? Is it plug and play?

I hate DRL's. Why would you want DRL's?
Just turn your lights on.

I guess a matter of opinion. I like DRLs as they increase your visibility to other drivers (especially on gray days). Yes, I could just turn my lights on or I could get a DRL module which is what I was asking about.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

Who invented seatbelts? Volvo

Who pressured the Swedish government into making DRLs mandatory? Volvo

Who fit DRLs on their cars for all markets? Volvo

Who arguably make the safest cars on the road? Volvo

Not a huge Volvo fan but they do have some good ideas and there was a significant increase in road safety in Sweden when they brought in the DRL

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

I agree, we had a chevy prior which had DRL's. Loved them because it was automatic and good to have driving in Mexico. If anyone finds the module, please holler out.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

According to the NHSTA web site it is optional as an 07 feature. I'd be willing to bet there is a module for this.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

It is in the Canadian versions so I am just curious if this just plugs in to a US Commander without changing any wiring.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

Just talked to my dealer and they seemed to think the wiring harness would be different. I really wish I had an official answer.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

There's actually no seperate module for this. The daytime running lights are controlled by the front control module which pretty much controls all your options. You should be able to go to the dealer and get them to hook up the StarScan to upgrade your options to include DRL. It may only be able to be done at the factory, not sure.

Re: Adding A Daytime Running Light Module?

YB Normyl is corret. I just had mine turned on via a laptop plugged into the dash. Took 30 seconds. I also had the option of choosing any combination of any of the lights to use as the running lights. Pretty cool. I chose the yellow blinkers only to be on.
