it was at 100% when they first installed the relays like a few weeks ago but today they installed a resistor thing to make it run at lower power. hehe

Since they installed the resistor, do your high beams still come on at 100% intensity?

one slight problem tho...they install a bunch of relays and screwed them near the headlights. changing the bulb is kinda hard now.

Nise DRL

IMO Honda needs to make these standard on all Accords. It is a safety feature after all.

i don't really know how to diy it cuz i had a shop diy it for me all i know is that they used two big relays, one for each headlight and each relay has two relays connected to each other. then they wired it to my high beam output wire and my ignition wire (power source). oh yeah they also had a resistor put.

that's all i know hehe

dont forget heated seats.....


doing drl's is actually pretty easy if you want manually operated ones, ie second fog lights... you simply wire a relay to the switch, and start throwing in big resistors till you get the light intensity you want... wire a kill relay ahead of that relay to your parking lights, and voila! you have drl's....

i was just thinking, wouldn't it be simpiler to just splice in a switch and dimmer. that way i can turn on the high beams whenever i want.

that's what they did to mine. i got a separate switch to turn the drl on or off whenever i want. when they made my drl they took a resistor from an old crx and put that in my car. the resistor has three settings for different dimness hehe
