Daytime Running Lights

I imported my GTS from Illinois to Canada. Federal law requires Daytime Running Lights for registration in Canada. Cdn Tire didn't have any kits left, Chrysler Dealership said it was going to cost "big bucks" to instal DRL so I asked about wiring diagrams. None of the Chrysler Dealers had any books or knowledge available so I stared under the hood for about 1/2hr. and figured out how to do it myself.

I tested the connectors at the IGN. Relay and the Driving lights relays in the Power Distribution Module. I connected a wire from the key on terminal to the activate connector of the Driving lights and "Voila" Daytome Running Lights!!!! Cost was free for the 3" piece of wire and not very hard to figure out without a book.

Find a Canadian Tire with the kit.

Just call around. You will find one. It is the only way to go. Forget the dealers.

I have a Gen 3. All they had to do was change a computer setting on mine.

If you want to disconnect the DRL just pull out the Relay for it from the Power Distribution Module. If you don't like them you could get them shut off (in the computer) if you have a Gen 3. If I wasn't worried about tickets I'd remove the driving lights and use the holes as brake cooling ducts ( with a couple feet of ducting).

I wrote off my 98 and replaced it with an 01 GTS. The Ignition doesn't have a solenoid in PDC in 01. For an 'on' wire I'm going to use a fused run wire from the cabin fusebox. The driving light's relay is in the PDC so I'll just run my 'key-on' wire to the Relay signal terminal, then I'll have Daytime Running Lights. It'll take more wire with the '01, but still just a 2' piece is more than enough.

I'll take a pic of the PDC and try to post it in this thread later.

Buy the DRL module from any dealer. I think it cost me $100 and it sits on the frame rail....the connection plug is there on all Gen 1/2 vipers, just capped off.

Plug it in.

Done.

Your dealer is full of shit.

the MOdule is a simple plug and play. no issue. you can do it your self, as easy as plugging a vacume into the wall. just order the module. i did ther same thing to import my car. i woudl suggest the module. IF and only IF you were to have a problem like a fire due the wiring, your insurancwe woudl look to see if the module was there. no module no insurance, Period. no questions asked . good luck
