How to select which front lights are used as DRL (DTRL)

Post by tniemin » Sun Aug 20, 2017 6:21 pm

How to select which front lights are used as daytime running lights?

My car is 2009 Ford Galaxy with automatic lights and the current setting is that there are no lights at daytime (light switch in (A) auto position).
HIDs and tail lights lit up when there isn't enough light on outside...

Is there a way to configure fog lights to work as daytime running lights (DRL)?
Light Switch (auto)
- Bright daytime -> only Fog lights are on
- Darker times -> HIDs and tail lights lit up as it does with current setting.

Any help would be appreciated.

I do not know Galaxy, I got this from F150 /everest forum, someone said they have done that OK , but I can not make it in my 2017 explorer, seems something else need to be discovered.

if set BCM 726-45-01 xxxx 7Fxx xxxx

then BCM 726-50-01 set to below will change the DRL in front

Low Beams - 0280
Front Fog Lamps - 0482
Front Turn Lamps - 0886
Dedicated DRL - 108E
High Beams - 209E
Low Beams and Dedicated DRL - 40BE
Disabled(maybe not) - 017F

Thanks Lambertwang for your answer.

Ok. I'm going to need some instructions to get more options from FORSCan...
How do you get those (AS BUILT format) options visible to "Configuration and Programming" screen?
I've seen some pictures where they have both configuration options available for all modules.

I only have ABS module with AS BUILT, but everything else is in "User Friendly" format (picture attached). :?
I also have Extended license, but do I need something else to get "AS BUILT" editing to show up?

hi, did you apply the license for your installed FORScan, if not, I believe that would be reason why you do not have much module listed there. otherwise , I guess you purchased a MS or HS only ELM327 , this action indeed need both MS and HS , normally there is a switch on that.

I think I applied the license correctly. At least the app shows that Extended license is valid until... (pic).

...and the adapter is USB Modified ELM327, and I bought it from here:
https://tunnelrat-electronics.fwscart.c ... 45457.aspx

It has that switch and this was recommended by ConversMOD.de
In use there are no errors with MS or HS...

Any ideas?
...because I have none... :?:

Can you drop us a screenshot of the Modules tab on the first screen (Vehicle and interface information) while connected to your vehicle?

Here is the picture of listed modules (HS/MS).

There's a bit more modules showing than the Config and Programming screen.

I'm driving FE Lim+ 2016 made in Russia. Tried it your way. Works like a charm.

Thank you.

726-45-01 xxxx ABCD xxxx - for F-150 before 2015 is changing tire size, not DRL types. May be some one know how to change DLR to front fog light insted of main lamps? When i try to setup that value in Forscan, modules return error value.
Life too beautiful and interesting... Don't worry, be happy.

Settings, if available, should be in BCM. On my wife's '13 C-MAX Energi the options are limited:

DRL on when ignition on
DRL on when not in P (which does not work)
DRL off

May not be available on your '09 I'm afraid....
