I want to install HIDs in my 2010 Camaro 1ss. I only want them to come on at night. How do I disable the DRLs so this can work? Thanks in advance!!!

I think I got it!!!!! Take the hot wire from your headlights and put it on your parking lights, then take your positive from your parking lights and put it to your headlights. This way your parking lights will come on when you start it up, and your headlights will only come on when it gets dark. After 5 new threads and over 200 views I solved my own problem.

Is there any other way to disable them? I usually pull the relay, does the Camaro have a similar set-up?

Usually they are permanently disabled when the car that did not have them hits you at about 60mph.

Yes, I just remove the DRL relay and everything else works fine and it's easy to return to stock if you sell it. I'm not sure if the Camaro is set up the same way, I've been driving it every free minute!
