2003 matrix xrs DRL

Why did a make another one you may ask? Because there is so much confusion and so many different ways of doing this that I had a hard time deciding which one to do!

At the end of the day I did this, took me 1 minute and YES IT WORKS!!! Please donít trash this thread with other ways or what worked or didnít work for you because I donít care! Keep it nice and simple!

Pictures speak for itself!
Above the pedals you will find this box!

Itís the red and white wire, just cut the sucker and stop thinking about it to much! Leave it hanging to tape it! It still works FINE!

So, uh, does this also disable auto-lights at dusk?
People's misconceptions on adjustable suspensions usually come from a lack of knowledge.

so if I wanted to put led strips in my headlights or have my fogs as drl I can just hook the power to the red wire that comes out of that box and it should work?

for fogs I would run the wire to a switch then to the lights for the on/ off option?

No, not without re wiring your headlight switch and adding in a few relays.

I might just run my aftermarket fogs..to an ignition switch so as soon as the car is running they com on, but have a toggle for them to... relays sound too hard for my knowledge

So I am importing my '07 Matrix from the US to Canada and need real DRLs.  My car currently has just the auto-lights for dusk.  Am I to understand that if I hook up this red wire to a 12v current from the battery that I will now have functioning DRLs, thus making  my car compliant with Canadian safety standards?

 

 

Since I don't have DRLs on my car, what will I find instead of this box?
