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.

    • AC Temperature no range. Only cold or hot

      I have the same issue, it's supposedly a fault within the control box. I haven't bothered fixing it but it is annoying.

      HI guys,
      I have a 2004 350Z softtop and have had issues with AC unit since I got it. 
      The AC unit has 2 options - Cold (when set at 18 on the dial) and Hot when set to anything but 18. Makes no difference is AC button is on or off. There is no range. I have read it can be because of the sun sensor on the dash (no idea how that could be of any effect). I replaced the passenger side one but makes no difference - no surprise there. I have pulled the white AC control box out from under the stereo but everything looks fine. No broken cables, all lights and functions of the unit work - just the ability to adjust them temperature is stuffed. Anyone come across this issue before and been able to find a solution? Really annoying having either a hot or cold cabin and nothing in between! Thanks! Tim

      Silly reply to start off but make sure you have your foot on the brake. It wont go back unless your are stationary and foot is on the brake. I have the same model and I have found it does not like the cold as previous reply mentioned - must be the rigidity of the fabric. If its a cold morning, it will get about 75% of the way and get stuck. If its warm - goes back no problem.

      Good choice of wheels, now let’s see some pics. I’ve just ordered a set of Nismo wheels from america .
    • 370z Wheel choice – Australian market research - FYI
      By paracin · Posted
      After 2 months of market and forums research, I bought my new wheels – 19” Kiwamis. The following factors were considered: wheel size and spacers, quality, price and the supplier’s customer service. To determine the right size, I thoroughly studied 17 pages of “370z wheel fitment guide” on The370z forum and settled for 9.5 +25 and 10.5 +12, which should provide a flush fit without spacers or camber adjustment while accommodating larger tyres (if so inclined after suspension upgrade). Quality-wise, after considering some questionable 20” Taiwanese options like XXR ($1200+), Koya ($2400+), Vertini ($2800+ with 35% off), Rohana and Ferrada (both over $3K), I settled for a proper JDM option – Work Emotion Kiwami AHG (matte bronze), deep concave front and ultra deep concave rear. JDM Concept’s price is not only cheaper than the above, but also cheaper than Work USA. Regarding customer service, my first choice of wheels were Gram Lights or Weds but I didn’t get a quote from Aaron in nearly 4 weeks (he did apologise); Koya (Koya wheels), Venero (representing Ferrada wheels) and B.Boss (for Vossen VFS-1) NEVER even acknowledged receipt of my web inquiry; the main players on Princess highway between Tempe and Arncliffe, where I inquired in person, were totally disinterested, one even outright rude. (Is it my grey hair, I wonder, that causes people not to take me seriously in a Zed?) The shining stars of customer service are: Leonardy from JDM Concept, representing Work wheels, who replied to all my emails within an hour, often quicker. He specialises in Work wheels and is extremely helpful and accommodating (eg I picked up my wheels within 3 hours from committing to the purchase). George from Rollenso employed significant efforts to assist me with finding the right Lenso wheels. George is experienced, knowledgeable and helpful. I also ordered the tyres from George cheaper than Tempe, and that’s saying something.
