Re: DRL mod with tail lights

They have not wired up the tail lights, as the driving lights are on, which also activates the tail lights.

From what I can see, they have put HID or LEDs in the driving lights and have the DRLs modded to be on. On my car the ribbons are activated with the parking lights, which is also how you get the driving lights to work. They have just got the DRLs on at the same time, but this may be a standard feature on Russian models.

Yeah you are right, they have the fog lights on which does make the rear tail lights work, but in my case and a couple of others in Australia the rear lights do not work with the switch in park position with engine running

Re: DRL mod with tail lights

I drive like this all the time during the day. I just put my parking lights on with the fog lights. Tailights come on as well. I think he has hid fog lights though. No mods.
