    I used the 10k resistor. You can get them from Radio Shack for less than $2.00. Works great. No more getting asked if I can turn my headlights off when I get to the gate at Fort Gordon.

    Good info, but I do not like headlights as DRLs. I really don't like DRLs, but the first time I saw the amber DRLs I thought that was cool. Then found out the F-bodies have ambers for DRL, I thought finally GM did something right. Then saw a TA with the ambers and fog lights on (no headlights) and I was hooked....

    If your car is already on and then you put the brake up the lights are supposed to stay on.

    Do they come on when you start your car if you never put the brake down?

    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    i took an easier approach... behind the moonsoon, there is the drl module... i just added a little wire, shorting 2 pins... would need to look which ones, since it's been something like 6 years I did it... all intents and purpose, the sensor thinks it has daylight all day/night long.

    I did it this way: http://www.xse.com/leres/ss/drl.html
    but instead of soldering on the board, i just put a wire between the 2 conections

    Check to see if your parking brake reminder light is on on the dash when you pull up the parking brake. I've noticed lately that mine does not always come on when I pull mine, and if the car is idling, the BCM won't let me pop the hatch unless it thinks the parking brake is set. I bet it is the same for the headlights. My DRLs won't stay off unless I start the car first with the park brake set, and only then if it knows it is set.
