Does the VT have standard DRL's? If so, can you remove a fuse or somehow get them to be on with ONLY the LED's on instead of the whole headlight?!? If you have to turn them on manually every time you're in the car then that solves it right there.
A curious mind would like to know... Thanks in advance to the feedback!

VeeTee, my VT does not have DRLs. I don't think it is available here in the US.

Dunno, but You could always hook up a toggle switch to any circuit if its important to you to have that control.

Toggle switch would be a pain, no DRL would be awesome, that way the LED's really shine IMO. :eek::friendly_wink:

Maybe I'm not understanding the question, but the LEDs can be turned on without any other lights on. Turning the headlight knob on the end of the left hand stalk to the first position will run the LEDS ALONE. The running lights (fog lights - driving lights) are turned on by a separate ferrule farther up on the stalk.

On mine:

DRLs are on with all switches turned to off.
First setting keeps DRLs on and adds LEDs
Second setting turns DRLs off, LEDs stay on and turns on projector low beams (and fogs if left switched on)

Only way I have found so far to get just the LEDs on is to turn the switch to first position and pull the emergency brake up 1 click. When emergency brake is pulled to 1 click position, the brakes don't engage but the DRLs will turn off leaving only LEDs. If someone would like to pull their center console apart, maybe they could locate the switch that controls the DRLs operation???????

Can the Canadians function that differently than ours here in the us? Sounds like you found the.trick though with the handbrake.

i asked the same question a month ago , and no one had an answer
i asked the dealer , and he said that they were programed in the computer to be like that, i asked aboutthe ebrake , and he said theres some sort of limit switch in there , but if you unhook it , your warning light for the hand brake will be on in the dash all the time, ive thought about that and maybe putting a small piece of black electrical tape over the light , but thats such a micker mouse way of doing it in such a nice car

hopefully someone comes up with a fix

Laws in Canada and many European countries require vehicles to operate with lights on during the daytime. Canada requires vehicles made after Dec. 1, 1989, to be equipped with DRLs. The European Union requires DRLS for new cars and small vans under a law that took effect in February 2011. New trucks and buses in the EU must have DRLs starting in August 2012.

No US state mandates DRLs, but some require drivers to operate vehicles with lights on in bad weather.


Info taken off IHS.org.

According to this all Canadian models will have the DRLs on all the time (except for e-brake trick, which my elantra is the same way) So US versions are most likely different. Hopefully I will know soon.

There is no law requiring daytime running lights that I know of in the U.S. (at least not in Texas or Colorado) I think this is only in Canada.
My LEDs work when I click to the first position and continue with the headlights.

For the Canucks, there should be a relay or fuse for the DRLs. Yank that and it should disable the DRLs.

yanking the fuse DOES NOT WORK :sorry: and i cant find a relay labeled for the drl

it has to be simple , because they are not going to change a production line for a tiny mode , the dealer thinks its in the computer

According to my Canadian Manual (Pages 7-66 and 7-67) there's a 10 amp fuse for the DRLs in the the "Inner Fuse Panel" and, according to the manual, the "Protected Component" is "Not Used". It might be worth giving that fuse a try.

Another option would be to try and figure which type of bulb is used for the DRLs, since it's not listed in the "Bulb Wattage" list in my manual (Page 8-2) and DRLs are legally required here in Ontario, to try a find a LED replacement for it.

what is the issue with having the DRL's on?
I am not understanding why you don't want them.

The color temperature doesn't match the LED position lights.

Kinda forgot about this. There is a DRL fuse location in the cabin fuse box. The engine compartment fuse box located beside the airbox doesnt have a DRL relay or fuse. Pulling the cabin fuse doesnt turn the DRL off like it has in pretty much every other car Ive tried it on.

I have however noticed that when the DRLs are on and you signal a turn, that side DRL goes out while the signal is flashing. Leads me to believe the DRLs are connected to the signals some how and possibly not defeatable unless you mess with the signal too.

I dont mind the DRLs, they are just a very pale yellow colour compared to the LEDs. The DRLs use the highbeams on low power. Changing the high beam bulbs to something around 7500K and they will match the LEDs.
