I would like to know if you find out anything on this. I would like to have daytime running lights on my Concorde. I have found if you take out the marker lamp fuse all it effects is the dash nighttime lights and the outside markers, so it looks like you have daytime running lights on your car if you turn on your headlights!

I believe it was EagleVision993 who has them. Basically DRL's use the high beams of your headlights, but at a lower wattage so as not to blind people during the day. Check out a car with them that has seperate bulbs for highs and lows. With DRLs it will use the high bulb. This is basically for visual purposes as the highs are more visable during the day but not to blind oncoming drivers.

My 94' Eagle Vision ESi has a daytime light. Is that what you guys talking about? If you like, I can take a photo of the daylight, low beam and high beam.

Cheers,

I have done this mod and I like the look and the additional benefits of beeing seen earlier on the road.

Actually it is a quite simple mod,but only if you know what you have to do.

I installed the original Chrysler DRL module,but maybe you could also get an aftermarket solution. The original module uses the hgh beam at reduced intensity as the light source.

Firstly, you need the (original) daytime running light module which should be available at your dealer or you get one from the junkyard.They are all the same in all first gen LH cars.

Now you need the wiring schematics (which I could send you if you need them) to know the connector layout.

Finally you connect the DRL module to ground,power, highbeam filament ,lowbeam filament (to switch the drl module off when you turn your lows on) and ignition.
Furthermore you connect the drl module to the park brake lever switch .This makes the drl go on and off when you release or set the brake.

Huh....maybe not even that fast mod....but doable...

btw:I´ll try to get a pic of my DRLS

Hi,

no,I used the Drl-module from a Canadian Chrysler. I had to route the wires to the highbeam bulbs.
There is no additional bulb.The DRL module used the highbeam filament.

It may look like seperate bulbs because the european headlights have separate bulbs for high and low beam (9005/9006)

All Canadian cars are required to have DRL by law. So just check any Canadian car's setup would be my guess. I always thought it was controlled by the BCM.
