i checked HMA but no luck, does anyone know the wireing configuration for the head lights and turn lights? im trying to make the DRL be the corner lights instead of the head lights. just wanted to check before i star cutting and trying

IMO it can't be done without major wiring. The DRL control module operates the DRL based on a series of inputs (handbrake, light switch, high beam, gauge cluster and even the brake light relay). When the headlight switch is off, the DRL control module operates the headlights at lower voltage by running their ground into a resistor then through itself. So the headlights are grounded twice, once for the HL switch and once through the DRL module. They only have one source of power from the fusebox.

The turn/parking lights use a common ground and have two power sources since the bulb is dual filament. By using the turn/parking lights, you wouldn't be able to use the turnsignals without blowing the fuse everytime.

The easiest way to get turn/park light DRL would be to drill a hole in the headlights and use a proprietary bulb. Then you connect it to a 12v switched power (I like the defrost or cig lighter) and use the DRL resistor as a ground.

The DRL resistor is on the driver's side framerail. Picture 24.


The DRL resistor uses three wires. Green goes to the DRL module. Brown/white and red come from the headlights and splice together somewhere in the wiring harness. Cut those off, splice them to your new DRL bulb grounds (splice all 4 wires together).

It should work but don't take my word for it as I've been wrong before. Don't cut any wires until you've tested and triple checked everything. The new bulb wouldn't be running at full voltage since you would be going through the DRL resistor. I don't know what would happen if you decided to bypass it altogether. The DRL module could burn out. If you were to bypass it, you would just splice your grounds to the green wire on the DRL resistor harness.

 You can also find turn signal DRL kits on the internet, similar to what some GM products had. The high wattage filament for turn signal bulb is used as a DRL, and the circuitry permits using the turn signals normally.
