    Daytime running lamp (DRL, also daytime running light)

    Naisip ko lang...

    Since most entry level cars walang DRL...

    May special fuse ba ang top of the line cars na ginagamit for DRLs?

    Although yung mga mas bata nating members will mention na DRLs are LED lights... Nung early 90's most American cars' parking lights (and instrument panel) will light up once naka-on yung ignition ng car. Fast forward to the present time, ginawa lang LED yung lights... (Salamat Audi )

    So question ko is, kung entry level yung car without DRL... baka naman may pwede palitan sa fuse box nung car para gamitin nya yung parking lights as DRL...

    Although hindi kasing ganda kung parking lights ang mag-on... Para sa safety naman talaga ang DRL

    sa truck ko may ginawang module si zix para sa drl. bale 50% (i think) lang ang output nung high beam kapag naka on iyong makina. And then deactivated siya kapag naka on na ang park lights and headlights. Although may option na always activated siya.

    siyempre correct wiring and all na siya (connected sa fuse and everything).

    baka pwede mo contact si zix para sa project mo.

    mas ok nga siya tingnan actually kasi parang oem. unlike doon sa fd2 ko na ginamitan ko ng led lights drl. although maganda din naman kinalabasan nun. si gary ng retrofit naman tumira nun

    a good auto electrician should be able to tap direct from the battery and have its own fuse to boot.

    also, look into your fusebox. there might be a spare tap there for "accessories".

    No special fuse.. pero pwede ka mag gawa ng wiring to trigger the park lights using relays and diodes or install a dedicated drl tapped to your accessories line..

    Use a voltage sensor to turn the foglamps on only when the engine is running. Another relay will be wired in parallel to the existing fogLamp relay contacts.

    Ah, another DRL thread. Well let me tell you, I've been a believer that we don't need DRL in a tropical country. We don't have winter nor do we encounter fog on a regular basis (except maybe in one or two places), and for if we do encounter inclement weather or where there's limited visibility, you can simply turn on your low beams.

    DRL is just light pollution, IMO.

    Who needs DRL then? Motorcycles do. But as it is, in a sea of DRL from all vehicles on the road, you're likely to bury the motorcycles in all the "noise".

    BUT, if you're hell bent on putting a DRL and want it to behave like OEM, make it so that it can sense that you're neither in Park or Neutral and that the ignition is ON, before lighting up the DRL. Proper DRLs don't turn on with the engine. They only turn on when the vehicle is shifted into any of the drive gears.

    If that's difficult, another easy way to achieve similar results, is to sense the position of the handbrake. When the ignition is on and the handbrake is down, DRL should be on. In any other combination, the DRL should be off.

    This is a good idea. I had leds retrofitted in the headlights but I synched them to the park lights because the default setup is engine on = park light on.
