Mine (sometimes) puts just the sidelights on - on overcast days?

I have only ever noticed main lights coming on with Auto; not that I always check what the lights are doing on Auto.

Possibly that I only notice main lights as so much more obvious

Ive created a short video on my DRLs on my channel:

Looks superb and really professional.

Not something I would try though.

In fact I would probably take my car to dealership for bulb replacement.

I did once fit a reversing light to a mk1 Ford Escort and whilst reversing the car it caught fire.

Not one of my best DIY jobs.

Just came across this thread. Certainly an interesting way of doing things.

I plan on just replacing the OEM fogs with LEDs (are they H7?). No intention of using them as DRLs but if I did I would still replace the H7s and do similar with the wiring to achieve DRL with ignition.
