Daytime lights mod


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

I have a strange thing happening. In Sweden we have daytime running lights as well and my 996 had it from the beginning (sold in Sweden). However, suddenly a few weeks ago I do not have this anymore. :o All lights are working when i turn the light switch in different positions (fog light when pulling, parking light and xenon light), however in the "0" position nothing works. My car has the Litronics and in Sweden the automatic daytime light was not including the xenon lights, only the parking light and the front foglights, as well as the rear lights.

What I could understand from the hack above there is supposed to be a relay operating the automatic daytime lights on cars that were equipped with this from the beginning. Does anyone know which relay this is ? I have checked the manual but without success.

Regards,

Niclas

Should be were the large yellow X is. It is like the top relay in that it is twice the size of the other relays.

After checking in the car there was a relay ("single" size) where the left part of the yellow cross is in Tool Pants picture, two rows above the fifth "53" labelled relay. There are also three cables wired to this place on the backside. These cables are not in the factory loom, so I guess this is done special by the swedish importer. The relay was a BOSCH branded, so it might not be so expensive.

Hi TP,

I saw the hack you posted, seems very simpel, but is this working for european cars also?

In europe we don't have daytime running lights on cars.

could you maybe explain what it is?

As I understand, when you start the engine the lights of position 1 on the light switch are always on?

Am i correct?

I would like to have te side repeters to ben on when I'm driving, I there an hack for?

thx

This mod seems to activate the main beams (second position of light switch). Anyone know how to only activate the parking beams (first position of light switch)?

Maybe kind of late, but if anyone is still interested, I did it today. Use the instructions at the link above and make the changes as below.

I changed the wiring. I made a "Y" with two female connectors wired into one female connector. I used 3 fuse taps, 3,4 & 6. See the picture. This turns on the side markers and the front running lights when the ignitition is on without using the headlight switch.
