Lightbulb Park Light as DRL mod. (need wire diagram)

Hello!

I'm a Electrician and planning to make a modification to use my cadenza park led lights as a DRL, to do that I planning to work as bellow:
  1. Just front park light LED will be on in igntion, not rear light.
  2. No indication will be on in dash panel

So, when I press start, park light will be always on, just front light not rear, but when i manually turn on park light it will work normally as OEM.

To my project I made the draft bellow:


https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CM8...ew?usp=sharing

But I don't know from where are these supplies, anyone alerady done something like that or can share the wire diagram from this part of system?

Cheers

Personally, I'd recommend against doing this. The positioning light (i.e. the white accent light above the projectors) are not even visible during daylight hours. The light is not bright enough or properly focused. The result is you can't even tell they are on in the day. You'd just be causing wear on the positioning light LEDs for virtually no benefit.

However, I'll dig out the wiring diagrams and post them in a few minutes if you still want to do it.

I've attached 5 pics that should help.

1 - Wiring Diagram for the parking lights

2 - IP/F connector view (Pins 6 and 7)

3 - Location of IP/F connector (in the fuse box) - if you want to do what you want inside the cabin, this is the place to do it

4&5 - connector view at the headlight - if you want to do it in the engine bay

BTW, you didn't specify what year you have - the diagrams are for 14-16 MYs.

Just to keep a log to reference, below a new draft using the information from Yooshaw's docs.

Since all automobiles in Canada must have DRL's why don't you try to get the Canadian schematics .They must be available somewhere? Even better see if you can buy the OEM kit. This is coming from a 70 year old guy who hasn't quite mastered the use of a screw driver so consider the source .

Not sure where Gabriel is from, but the US models have no DRL module in the spot where the DRL module is on Canadian models. The DRL modules are not available for purchase as separate part number (I've tried!). The wiring is there for the DRL modules on US versions, but receive no power all all - I suspect it's a programming feature the dealer could turn on.

Best option in my opinion for true factory style DRLs is to find used Canadian or Korean headlights with the DRL module and open up the headlights and do a transplant.

Looks good to me. What's the coin relay going to ground? Not familiar with it.

YES! It works!

Thanksfull of docs shared by Yooshaw It was a less than 1 hour job.

From long time ago I was planning to do that, let me explain why. I'm from Brazil, and here the DRL is not so usual, just mandatory in some interestadual roads, these days more comum on german's car (BMW, Audis and Mercedez) that for me have a DRL very similar with park led lights from cadenza (yes, as Yooshaw told, maybe light is not to strong, I will check it tomorrow on daylight) and the idea came using relays, that I spent less $10 with connector each one.

The only remark found during the job was about the connector 6 to right light and 5 to left light in place of 7 as marked in my draft


I planned before I bought two relays very similar with these



Note that it has 5 wires:

- Comum (30)
- Positive to the coil (85)
- Negative to the coil (86)
- Normally Close contact (87a)
- Normally Open contact (87)

In a very simples how to:

I just cut wires 5 and 6 from I\P-F connector (following Yooshaw's docs) and took pins 85 and 87 and connect both togheter to wire that's linked with the connector I\P-F, I mean that comes from control unit.
after that connect pin 30 to another part of the cable that was cut, I mean wire that go to lamps.

Now I connect pin 86 to a ground part (any iron bolt connect with the car's frame) and finally conect pin 87a to a source supply thats just on when ignition is on (I forgot to note which one because I already have it from an old mod.)

It was a mistaken! It's a coil and not coin LOL

I connect to the frame to works as negative signal to supply the relay.

Almost impossible to have this kind of luck Cadenza is not so popular here in Brazil.
