My first mod will be disabling those freakin things! I hate DRL! Works great for visibility with a motorcycle (or for those that drive bubble cars some of which could probably fit in the back of the wk2 . . . . .stupid smart cars) but dont need on the jeep!

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

Why does everyone despise the Daytime running lamps on a vehicle? Yes I guess it "wastes" the light but 1, you don't really notice it and 2, I suppose your more visible but I wouldn't say tons..

Its near impossible to get done, Ive phoned every dealership in Saskatchewan. and I even tried edmonton or calgary. No one will do it because its super illegal, and they dont want to get caught.

Unless you can figure it out yourself, which most people cant because its not as simple as pulling out a relay or fuse, you are basically fuccked LOL..

sorry to burst your bubble dude!

where in canada u from??

Just moved to Mississauga, Ontario one month ago

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

WK2 DRL:


1. Halogen:

United States vehicles equipped with halogen front lamp units - DRL's are not available (Laredo models).

United States fleet vehicles equipped with halogen front lamp units and optional DRL's illuminate the high beam headlamp bulb in each front lamp unit at a reduced intensity to serve as DRL.

Canada vehicles equipped with halogen front lamp units illuminate the low beam headlamp bulb in each front lamp unit at a reduced intensity to serve as the Daytime Running Lamps. The DRL's illuminate when the engine is running, the parking brake is released, the automatic transmission gear selector is not in the PARK position and the exterior lamps are turned OFF


2. HID:

North American vehicles equipped with HID front lamp units illuminate a dedicated DRL bulb in the front lamp unit.

Export market vehicles (all have HID) illuminate a combination DRL/position lamp bulb in each front lamp unit.

Vehicles equipped with HID headlamps have two DRL relays located in the Power Distribution Center. The TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) operates a dedicated DRL bulb (domestic markets) or a combined position/DRL bulb (export markets) through right and left DRL relays to serve as the DRL.

The TIPM must be programmed appropriately for this feature to be enabled. Once enabled, anytime the TIPM receives electronic messages over the CAN data bus from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) indicating the engine is running, from the EMIC indicating the status of the headlamp exterior lighting input is OFF or A (Automatic) and indicating that the parking brake is released, the TIPM provides a pulse width modulated voltage output to the proper headlamp bulbs or provides a path to ground for the DRL relays to produce DRL illumination at the proper intensity.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

DRL's are nice to have, but a pain if your putting in HIDS's, however, if the vehicle already has HID's, then thats a win win.

I can understand not liking them- they do have a couple of drawbacks, but it still seems to me that folks get WAY too worked up over them.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I agree, but a lot of the points are valid reasons that people hate DRLs, such as:

- You lose critical traffic signaling methods.
- Drivers with DRLs often forget to turn on their low beam headlights in rain or fog and at dusk or dawn
- There are places where you need to drive with only your parking lights, i.e. drive-in movie parking lots, astronomical gatherings, military bases, etc.
