Hey Guys,

I was replacing my H11's and H1's the other day and happened to notice the day time running light is this tiny little bulb. Unfortunately it doesnt match my H11's, H1's or HIDs. When i looked in the manual and Lordco (huge parts store) i couldn't find the bulb type or where to buy one that would shine pure white.

Any ideas?

or you could have just turned on the headlights and turned off the fogs for that ....

Well I didn't ask for them to fuck up. They messed up the relay or whatever they do and it turns the wrong light on when they turn the key.

I don't think Dephect realizes that in Canada, the DRLs have to come on with the ignition - just keeping the headlight switch turned on isn't acceptable.

You should be able to have the relays rewired to light up the parking lights - any car stereo shop should be able to handle that easily.

Haha no, you don't.

Actually, DRLs run de-powered high beams or low beams, and come on involuntarily. Parking lights are parking lights, and must be actuated with the switch. Those are the beloved 194s everyone has such issues replacing, for whatever reason.

And DRLs are the law in Canadia.
