Halo's as DRL

So I've always wanted my halos to be on like the daytime running lights.
I found this simple harness from gen5diy.com:

http://www.gen5diy.com/PnP_harnesses...s/halo-harness

Does it work on Canadian cars? (Fog lights are DRL lights)
Do they ship to Canada?
Has anyone installed this exact harness?

Ofer is fantastic to deal with and he most definitely does ship to Canada.

I converted the headlights on my non-RS car to AAC HID's with halo rings and Ofer was able to come up with a custom harness to correct ALL the issues I was having with the POS harness that AAC included with their kit.

I didn't use the particular harness that you're looking at since my car did not come with the RS package, but my halos come on with my fogs which now act as my DRL's.

Send him a PM either here on the forum (2SSRS) or message him through his site and he'll set you up with everything you need.

I need one of these as well. We removed my fog lights and mounted the transmission cooler behind the hole on the passengers side. The holes were covered with a black metal mesh. Now all I have left for DRL's is the halos.

I didn't install this harness but here is the thread I started http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...31#post5462431

The harness I installed allows the DRL to stay on with Halo's and full lighting.They do ship to Canada and it got here really quick. As someone else already stated Ofer from gen5diy is really helpful and is a member here at Camaro5.

Send him a PM and let him know exactly what you want your lighting system to do and he'll let you know which harness you need.

its just a patch wire kit from the DRL harness to the side marker light harness, you dont need to buy a "harness" unless you want to.

your front side markers, halos (and in my case DRLS) light up all the time.

the wire you will need is 5" long

Hope this helps.

I had help, only because I didn't know how to do it but it is real easy I promise!

I'll look to see if we have pics for you.

Why do you want the head lights on during the day??? I mean I have my Halos () on all day /night long by turning the light switch one notch. The HID will turn on automatically when it gets dark...

I don't want the headlights on, just the halos. This harness makes the halos act as daytime running lights. Much like the halos on the BMWs.

If you turn the light switch, that turns on your parking lights, so your tail lights are on as well. And then you have to remember to shut them off

I have the LED side markers lights so it looks better when on

If you turn the headlight knob to turn on your halos then your parking lights are on - and your headlights will not turn on automatically once it gets night out. You'd have to either turn the knob back to automatic or turn it once more to the right to turn your headlights on.

Wrong...I've been doing this for 4 years now driving with my halos on(one click to the right) & when it gets dark the DRLs turn Off & the HID comes on. I never use the Auto & the Headlight switch(2 clicks)...

Hey Stig, I believe the US cars are different then the Canadian cars, at least the early build cars like Rick's and Mine are.

Rick is correct.....even though he is from Quebec j/k buddy!
I still love my halo light mod!

Received the harness yesterday. I went to install it but I'm stumped where to put the wire between each headlight. It looks like there may be a spot in front of the radiator but it was too hot to really check. Wondering where others put it?

If this is the harness you bought http://www.gen5diy.com/PnP_harnesses...ness#container
Pull back the passenger side wheel well liner. You will find a connector for your lights. This is the one that has to be undone when you remove your front fascia. This is the only connector there is. Unplug it and plug this unit in between. Then put the wheel liner back.

I meant the wire between the passenger side headlight and the drivers side headlight. 2SSRS already pm'd me a solution about removing the top mounts of the radiator to find a channel to tuck it in. Thanks 2SSRS and everyone!
