Recommended Posts

Having seen these I have just ordered a set for some post IVA work.

I fitted a controller that works of the ignition so I don't get the issues associated with current sensing, it also dims the DRLs when I turn on the head lights. It's either this one of very much like it.

I tried a cheap Chinese controller but it failed to work. 

So I now have my lights wired to ignition circuit instead of permanent live. I hated the way it used to allow lights to be left on without the key in!

I set it so when ignition is on the DRLs are on, when lights are on the DRLs are off. Use the savage switch’s double pole functionality for this so not sure how to achieve that with the older switches.

I just used a changeover relay.

'Ignition on' for supply to DRL's via relay (30 to 87) then side light feed to coil (86 & 85 ground) to switch relay over and disconnect DRL's.

I use a controller similar to the one you have linked to which works ok but the dimming does not work. It makes the drl’s ficker, but that could be the DRL.

Mine are on all the time which is not a bad thing with my candle powered dominators
