(ive done a search but found nothing)

Will it cost me anything to activate daytime running lights for my car?
Will they be permanently on? or do i switch it to *automatic light switch* to turn them on?

any response would help me out. thanks.

Most manufacturers use a plug in module. I am not a fan of DRLs and here is why, with DRL fucntioning the taillights are inoperative and in low visibility conditions or even at dusk, too often you approach a nearly invisible car from the rear and SHAZAM you are stareing at a big metal fanny. If Uncle needed us to have DRL then he should have provided for activation of the tail lights as well.

Volvo daylights = front and rear

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

On the e36 there is a relay that turns them on and off. You need to buy the non-DRL relay.

on the e36, DRLs are activated by a relay. if you don't have them, then the car isn't equipped with the propper relay, so you would need to go to the dealer and buy one. I think that the e46 and newer cars are different, and that info is actually contained in the key. What car do you drive? I'll move this to that forum so the people who drive it my know better.
