DRL's Not Working - Help

Hey Guys,

Just purchased a 2011 wk2 Limited last week and so I'm very new to this board. I was replacing my DRL's with LED and something happened and now they don't work. Even though it seems most are disabling them, I like them as 6000k LED color. I just can't seem to find a fuse or how to get them back on. I replaced the old bulbs and still nothing. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you for your help.

They don't work if the vehicle is in Park.

Re: DRL's Not Working - Help

Did you put it in D or N with the footbrake OFF ?

There is a small fuse box right behind the main fuse box. It has 2 omron relays on the right side that control the daytime running lts. There is a thread that has pictures if you search threads on " how to disable dlr. I can't now as I'm on my phone.

Re: DRL's Not Working - Help

I read those threads. So are you saying the relays may need replaced and there is no actual fuse for these?

Re: DRL's Not Working - Help

Mine did exactly the same. I replaced them with LED's, they stopped working and the OEM globes did not work.
Took it to the dealer and they fixed it, unfortunately they did not say how, but I suspect it was in the ECU as there were no parts listed on the service docket.

Re: DRL's Not Working - Help

That's exactly it. I tried putting LEDs in and I thought a blew a fuse. Guess I'll take it to the dealer. And I guess there is a reason everyone on here says dont use LED DRLs. All well. Did you ever get yours switched over to LED after the fix? Thanks.

I have LED's in my DRL's for 10 months now. Perfect and no problems at all.
