Dtrl with headlights on?

Does anyone know what it takes to get the dtrl running with the headlights on 2013+ models?

Look up the 370z.com forum. They have a section on DIY 2013 led daytime running  lights on all the time.

Already tried that, followed their instructions to a T. Tested it out and it was throwing an engine light and they weren't working at all, but that was my mistake so I fixed that up and tried it again. No more check engine light and the dtrl were operating as normal. So I must be missing something. I've gone over and over it but I cant figure it out.

Perhaps get an auto electrician to do it. I don't think it will cost that much.

hey little i tried to do this with my 2015 model. The wires mentioned in the american forums are actually high beams for our cars NOT DRL. 

Looks like have to take the back cover off the IPDM and follow the wires back to the DRLS

Yeah I ended up going to an auto electrician and they basically said it would be a lot of messing around to get what I wanted done and they didn't seem real keen on doing it because apparently it's not legal?

I asked my auto electrician aswell. He wasn't to keen either, and said that it is illegal to change it because that is not how they come from factory and thus we can get defected for it.

It's only legal if that's how they come from factory. Obviously not in our case.

been running this on mine for over a year. Only issue with this method is that your parking lights and internal instrumental lights will be on all the time

I had an auto elec do it without issues about anything at the panel beaters while my 2012 was being repaired from a medium front end collision (lady came out of side street and I t-boned her Tida!). I was lucky enough to source a 2013/14 bumper with the DRL's at the time. Preferably I do not have the above issue with the parking/instrument lights on all the time. It all works properly as I want it.

      Hey there Z'dsters. So after reading all the comments about rim size and style, im now hesitant to change them. Its a lot of money out laid for something that could go horribly wrong. Firstly im not a lover of my 2012 rims... hence the reason for change. To be honest with you all, im now confused as hell and don't really no which way to turn. I find that im varying from the 19" because of the other styles and makes of rim that i like but are not made in a 19" . This Z'd is my first real nice car that is my baby as all of my vehicles have been high powered motorcycles so the Z'd relm is a learning curve to me. Ozzy tyres has two rims i'm considering, 1. is a 20" x 8.5 gloss black rim called ( pro drag PD1 ) now its a 8.5 inch width, which after researching can accomadate a tyre width from 225mm to 255mm. The 2nd rim im considering is a Vertini drift 19" x 8.5. colour to be decided. So after reading everyone's input i really am confused as to which way i should go and colour really. My Z'd is a 2012 Montery blue, and she is stock as a rock. Her shoe size's are.... Front: 245/40 x 19.    Rear: 275/35x19. They are Achilles tyres and i do not recommend, i find they are hopeless in the wet, crappy handling and helps the car understeer even more, and milage was lame and quite noisy........ Anyway................. So wheel and tyre package is needed for my baby girl...... So in your opinion guyz do you think the 20" rims a waste of money for the Z'ds. And would you consider 17 / 18" deep dish rims and why. would it cause complications being a smaller wheel etc etc. if you guys and gals don't mind.......... Some proper education on this matter would be seriously appreciated. Thanks Z'dsters. Dman.

      Hey fellaz, forgot about this thread.   My install is complete finally! Lets just say this is not a real RHD kit. I am pretty dissapointed in AAM claiming it is RHD.   Don't get me wrong the quality of the kit is excellent, but the amount of modifications/fab work it needed to fit our RHD car was insane! My install bill was huge because of it! Same with the other 2 AAM RHD kits i know of that was installed around Australia and UK.   Save yourself the cash, and buy a RevZone TT kit for 16K installed and tuned. The amount I spent to get the AAM kit fitted is enough to build a forged engine! I kind of lost respect for AAM now for telling us it is a RHD kit. 😠

      Wasn't quite looking for used wheels, to be honest. However, PM me some details please, I might consider. You never know...

      thanks to the forum I have been able to bypass the steering lock and car works fine A new module from Nissan was quoted at $2750, but they could do it for $1950, the same unit, brand new Nissan part on Ebay USA  $260USD

      Mine has been replaced by Nissan previously, found a sticker after I bought the car.

      Personally, I would try the "banging on it and yanking the fuse" trick, that way you'll never have issues in the future. Basically just hit roughly where the steering lock unit is, and get it to turn to ACC, then go pull the fuse while it's still unlocked (either On or in ACC).
