i don't think we have to have DRL here, but most of new vehicles from 1995 have it. i still see a lot of newer vehicles on the road without DRL. i'm not too sure.

The dlr kill worked, but I must have messed up the quad beam because if I pull the high beam leaver towards me the high beam and lows are both on (which is normal), but if I push it forward nothing happens. Then the truck seems to freak out, a security light comes up on the dash and then -----unknown driver----- is displayed.

I did notice there was about three of the same green wires, but I lined one of them up to the number 10 and assumed it was f.

With the yellow, I only really saw one yellow, but it was on the same line as the green one so im guessing that's where I went wrong? Because it says e4 and I probably did f4 or something.

What did I do wrong?

resurrecting an old thread - does following these directions in the first post still allow the 'auto on' feature to work at dusk/night?

Resurrection!

The directions in here work great. I'd already done the quad beam mod when we first got the truck (I did it under the dash, not at the BCM).

We've had HIDs for quite a while in the truck, and I bought the stuff for the capacitor mod well over a year ago and never got around to doing it, so we always just flick the DRLs off when we get into the truck.

I then came across this thread and remembered I had a spare relay/harness out in the garage from my old F-body. Wired it up exactly as in the first half of the first post of this thread.. was too lazy to solder, so I did my normal split-wire-reverse-twist-and-opposing-fold-and-tape ritual on the cut ends and then used some of those plastic splice pieces for the in-line stuff (FWIW, I've never had a problem with those). Electrician's knot wouldn't be very easy with the tiny wires used in the BCM wires.

Bottom line.. DRLs are no more! Both manual and auto headlights still work (we couldn't have lived without those).

Thank you for the post.
My journey was as follows:

1. Purchased sh*!ty HID bulbs and ballasts from eBay without knowing much. When I installed them and turned them on, all I heard was a buzzing sound that I was worried was a precursor to a fire. I immediately removed them.
2. I decided that a proper HID retrofit with projectors was what I wanted.
3. Purchased an HID retrofit system, hopefully the ones I got are decent but who knows.
4. I completed the retrofit in the headlight assembly.
5. Found out that DRL's suck for HIDs in cars that weren't meant to have them.
6. Found a DRL killer video on youtube and bookmarked it.
7. Bought a relay and relay socket for the project.
8. But the auto-lights feature turned me off. Project put on hold.
9. Searched today for a DRL killer that kept quad lights and auto-on/off headlights.
10. Found this thread.
11. Became motivated.
12. Took me about an hour and a bit to complete the project.
13. Worked perfectly the first time, thankfully.

No DRL
Lights turn on automatically at night when put into gear
Headlights do not flash when unlocking car
Yellow markers flash when unlocking car
Quad lights when put into high beam mode

I am a happy camper.

Your instructions were spot on. Though I'd recommend that you recommend a relay socket. I also labeled the wires ahead of time.

DRL Killer...

I followed Clifford Henlines instructions for making the drl killer except that I used a relay and socket and it worked flawlessly. The socket just makes things easier. The quad high beam mod works great. I used an HID conversion kit which came without instructions caused a little head scratching but I figured it out. I use 5000K Xenon bulbs and the difference is absolutely phenomenal! Well worth the effort!

This forum is great!!!

The e4 wire on mine is a tan-ish color the solid yellow is in a different location should I go with the location or color? This is for the quad headlight.
