I don't see any credits as to where you got this information because as of 23 just three days ago you were still researching it
PLP, I think it is mostly pre wired. There isn't a different part number for the bcm/light control module for with/without drl. It just shows that a particular pin (pin 10 of IP-D) is grounded when it has the DRL option. That pin is unpopulated in my connector,(without factory DRLs) but others have reported success by grounding the fuse itself. It appears that the DRL is similar to some other vehicles where the DRL is actually the high beam being run at some fraction of full power. I'm still researching, and even more I'm trying to find a source for the pins used in the connectors so that I could tap directly into the factory block rather than splice wires.
Then I Answered the thread with this fix to the same thread and you HIGHJACKED IT nice going,
Some of the suggestions made to wire the DRL's ,I would not use, this is what I did .
Remove the DRL fuse use, an electrical tester to check each side of the fuse seat one side should have power (DC volts) the other should have nothing,
Change your tester to resistance checker that is when the probes are put together the tester will move full scale, on the fuse side that has NO power put one probe and put the other probe into the terminal block (located directly below the fuses) between the large white wire and the small grey wire this should move the meter to full scale indicating you have continuity from one to the other,
Using the appropriate connecter, plug in the 18ga wire to the terminal block and connect the other again using a connecter suitable, to the grounding bolt.
Once done reinsert the fuse and your done.
IF ANY OF THIS CONFUSES YOU THEN TAKE IT TO A DEALER OR AUTO ELECTRICAL SHOP.
Oh by the way you don't have to run the ground wire all the way to the head lights its a wast of time and effort since the body of the vehicle is the ground conduit for all power sources back to the negative terminal on the battery you can connect anywhere there is a convenient grounding point and as so many of the contributors to my thread have pointed out the bolt to the left of the fusees is a good location,
If theirs any confusion out there you just added to it
