DLR Successfully Activated
I wanted daytime running lights for greated visibility during the day on my 2012 Sorento EX V6. Encouraged by others success in installing a terminal in the empty hole on the connector block and running to a ground, I began my search for a suitable terminal pin. I found some similar terminals on-line but all were too large. One problem being what to call it for searching purposes on-line. Next I tried all the auto parts stores in the area armed with the photo od the terminal pin. I found one at Auto Zone that looked about right, but ultimately it too was too large. Finally, I tried my Kia dealer parts dept. The gentleman was helpful and looked to see what he might have. We did find a terminal that might work when he brought out a box of parts left over from when the building was a Saturn dealership. He came up with a terminal with pigtail attached that looked small enough. Upshot is that it was small enough (tight fit, though) and when run to a ground point, voila, DLR! They work great. High beams at half power when car is on and the head lights are off (at the switch or on auto) and the DLR turns off when the headlights are on. I told the parts guy what I was attempting, his comment, "Cool". Bottom line, it works and some dealerships will work with you. Give them a shot.
