Thats right I finished the work just about 10 minutes ago, NO MORE DRL's! OR I can move them to the parking lamps at about 3x the brightness just like the corvette! I also had some fun with my IPC today, I'll post a video in a few.

I changed the programming in the BCM.

GTP, I take it you are a GM tech?

This IS great news and an option we should of have had from the beginning along with factory HIDs.

No, I'm not a tech :) Also along the lines this isn't something that a dealer can do either unfortunately :(

Hmmmm, just trying to figure out where you got the knowledge. lol

I wouldnt want my dealership to do this anyways. Knowing the majority of workers are morons (no disrespect to any on here) that are employed I wouldnt want them touching anything computer related.

I forgot GTprix got a nox, the drl on that is the high beam - Anyway to all terrain owners I called most of the dealers there is no way turning off the DRL noting in fuse box, it's in the ecu and there is no way of turning it off, so the only thing that you can do is to cover the sensor in your dashboard or manually switch to headlamp for your HID kit or ad a harnes or capacitor on it. I recomend just cover the sensor it is the safest way to have HID.

SLEtrick, the Nox has them in the low beams as well. The poster that provided that information was WRONG.

Anyways, GTP has been working with the Terrain to get the DRL hack done. The problem with covering the light sensor is that it dims your interior lights as well. Many users dont want that.

I have a Terrain, which has the DRL on the low beams. I can fix the DRL's on any of the Thetas (and the Lacrosse, Camaro ETC.).

My bad, I know I don't like the interior to be in dimm in daytime, it's been tough figuring out how to take drl off I'm just pissed off and I just can't wait without using harness, if I can't do anything I'll put my HID in my fog lights... And buy a bulb for my low beam

trick, Id wait to see what the new forum sponsor has for us. They have figured out the DRL in the Acadias so hopefully they can give us a product that fixes our DRL problems as well.
