Change DRL Function in a non-RS LS

Hey, I installed some aftermarket fogs into my 2013 2LS a while back. Afterward, I decided to retrofit some HID projectors into my headlights along with aftermarket halos. Now I have a problem that many non-RS owners face when they decide to install HID kits; I have no DRLs, instead my headlights are just on all day unless I manually turn them off while it's still bright outside. I was curious whether anyone knows a way to rework the DRL function of a non-RS to work similar to the DRL function of a factory RS. Basically, I'm asking if I can make my fogs my DRLs and have my headlights only turn on during the night. Maybe a special harness exists for this?

Hello, with my experience regarding headlight harnesses Gen5 is the best way to go and they could possibly build a custom harness to your need. For example in my case I upgraded my regular halogen headights to RS headights on my 2010 Camaro and the harness I bought turned my fog lights into DRLs during the day which keeps the headights off during the day. My fog lights now operate as DRLs during the day and they still function as fog lights during the night. Here's a link to their website http://www.gen5diy.com

Thanks, I'll see if I can get a custom harness. The issue is that all my lights are aftermarket. My headlights aren't from an RS and my foglamps don't have the factory harness.
