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.
