I was able to disable my DRLs without having to pull the fuse. The procedure was very easy to follow. Now, I'm working on getting clear LEDs for the parking lights instead of having the current amber color that's stock. I'm also hoping to be able to mod so that I can have my fogs on with the parking lights and/or my low beams.


I have a 2015 iTouring hatch with the halogen headlamps and the high beam DRLs.

So far, I've read about cutting the fog light wire from the BCM harness and splicing into the parking light wires... Now, I'm just searching for a wiring diagram for the BCM on our gen to try it...

Or if anyone knows which wire is which, that would help too...

Since you mentioned there's a DIY method...it'd be great if you posted the method for those interested.

Here's one DIY...

How to: Fog lights with parking lights--Easy

I haven't attempted this yet only for the fact that I'm not sure if the wire colors are the same between the different Gen's. If someone can provide a wire diagram for the Gen3's, then I'm sure this "how-to" should be at least a starting point for getting the fogs to work with parking lights only, as well as with the low beams.

Would this disable the high beams?
