  • DLRs on Genuine Steel Bar

    I called into the parts section of my dealership this morning to enquire about replacing the parking lights / blinkers on my premium steel bull bar with units that include DRLs (as I believe are fitted to Crusades).

    I was told that the part numbers are the same.

    If this is correct, I gather that an auto electrician could sort this out for me.

    Thoughts?

    For anyone interested, it turns out that it’s quite easy to add DRL function to the existing LEDs on on a genuine steel bar fitted to a GX.

    I had it done by an auto electrician, but my understanding is that you just have to connect an ignition/accessories feed to the appropriate wire (red, I believe) at the ECU that controls the bar lights. The ECU is located behind the bar upright on the passenger side.

    Basically you’re making the ECU think it’s in a Crusade, which has DRL functionality.

    The parkers receive a higher voltage and act as DRLs, but they dim when the lights are turned on or the blinkers are on.
