Drl killer diy

ok i threw this together for the guys who had trouble understanding the drl killers out there, i have had a few guys asking me questions lately here goes

first throw away the directions you used already i hate when the guys on here tell people to use those ****in wire taps JUST CUZ ITS EASIER lol,

ok here is what you need:
1. 2 blue butt connectors
2. 4 female spade connectors(same blue color as the butt connectors)
3. electrical tape
4. 30/40 amp relay(any name brand)
5. 4 pieces of wire about 6-8 inches long
6. RAZOR
7. solder and soldering iron(these are optional)

all this can be gotten at autozone or napa or advanced auto, i use advanced auto they always have everything, dont matter though


first you are going to assemble the relay harness,

strip both ends of the 4 wires you have chose to use, on one end of ALL 4 WIRES crimp 1 of the female spade connectors, on 2 of those wires you will add a blue butt connector, the other 2 wires will stay stripped bare, ok now the 2 wires that are bare at one end, will go on pin 85 and 86 of the relay, the 2 wires with the butt connectors will go on pin 87(do not confuse with pin 87a, the one in the middle of a 5 pin relay) and pin 30

ok now we will install this into our factory wireing,
follow these simple steps and it will work, no need to search the wires they are already proven. the following is ONLY FOR THE DRL KILLER THERE IS ANOTHER PROCEDURE FOR THE QUAD BEAMS AFTER THIS

1. disconnect the power terminal at the rear fuse box i think a 13 mm
2. disconnect the 2 harnesses from the bcm(tan and grey)
3. find the pink wire with white stripe(grey plug, pin number A5)
cut in half, now strip and connect the side of this wire that is on the plug side to the wire on the relay harness that you previousely made, PIN 87(one of the ones with a butt connector) now the other side of the pink wire with white stripe gets stripped and connected to PIN 30(the other wire on the relay harness with the butt connector)
THESE 2 CONNECTIONS SHOULD GO TO THE EXACT PINS I QUOTED ON THE HARNESS YOU MADE EARLIER THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!! IF YOU FORGOT WHICH WIRES ARE WHICH DONT HESSITATE TO PULL THE WIRES AND CHECK!!

VERY IMPORTANT!!!! IN THE NEXT STEPS YOU WILL NOT CUT THE WIRES!!
4. now find pin e7 on the tan plug SOLID PINK WIRE, you will use the razor to strip back and remove about 1 inch of the pink insulation on the wire then insert the razor between the strands of wire and seperate the strands gently, insert the wire you only stripped one end of on the relay you premade PIN 86, wrap this wire around the factory wire tightly, at this point you can solder the wires then tape them or just tape it up, this is called an ELECTRICIANS KNOTT

5. now find pin b6 (grey plug) solid white wire, now you will strip the wire about an inch
and seperate the wire strands like in the last step, insert the last wire remaining (pin 85) on the relay you premade, and twist it tightly around the factory wire, solder and tape or just tape it up like in the last step,

I ALWAYS SOLDER.. BUT YOU DONT HAVE TO IF YOU ARENT COMFORTABLE DOING SO

NOW FOR THE QUAD BEAMS

1. on the tan plug cut f10 in half (solid green wire)
2. strip back about an inch of e4 (the solid yellow wire) and seperate the strands of wire with the razor
3. strip about 1 inch of the green wire that you cut in half in the first step(the side of the wire on the harness not the side with the bcm plug), insert this wire into the yellow wire twist around tightly and solder and tape up or just tape it up, again up to you!
4. tape up the end of the green wire that is connected to the tan bcm plug, now you are finished

check to make sure everything is taped no wires showing, reconect the 2 bcm plugs and then reconnect the power to the battery post at the rear fuse block, go upfront and put a towel over the light sensor on the dashboard(this is to make sure that the auto lights come on later when the vehicle is started) shut the doors and hit the lock and unlock buttons, the front perrimeter lights (headlights) should not come on, next start the truck and put in gear the auto lights should come on, now flip the turnsignal switch forward and all 4 (hi and low beams) should come on like flash to pass,remove the towel off the light sensor and pull into the sunlight for a minute and the autolights should shut off

any problems send a private message or just post on one of my threads i have posted and i will get an instant email on my phone, i should get back to you pretty fast
GOOD LUCK IT SEEMS LIKE ALOT BUT ONCE YOU READ IT AND UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR DOING IT ISNT, IT REALY SIMPLE ACTUALLY

thank you very much Cliff for you clear instruction. i'll try this sometime this week.
i have another question, how many light switch positions are on your truck?
there're only 3 on mine, Auto/Park/ON. i really hope there's no different between US & CAN truck version
thanks

mine has 4 auto park on and to the left of auto if you flip the switch left it is spring loaded and that turns off the auto headlights, if yours dont have this then it may be an early 03 some of them didnt have the switch with the auto off yet in early 03(still has some 02 parts)

mine was built 09/2003, don't know if it's early or not. the only thing i'm worry is if there's anything different between US/CAN version or between SLE & SLT.
i'll do this anyway, will post a feedback here
thanks again

Nice work, but it really wasn't necessary.

I don't mean to sound like an *******, but If he couldn't do it the way the article says, he inst going to be able to do it your way either.

hi Me007, before i asked Cliff to give me his instruction i've tried followed what article said, but didn't work on mine. as i said on my other post here:
http://forums.trailvoy.com/showthrea...=1#post1082126 that the "white (-) with 0v when tested then 12v when light switch is ON" it's opposite on mine. i also tried to find another wire in both Tan & Grey harnsses, but couldn't find one that does the 0v then 12v switch on.

I just noticed you were from Canada, Maybe thats why your having such a hard time getting this to work. Dont you have to have DRL's up there?
