DRL Woes....
 
I have a 2003 325i Touring, with premium and sport packages.

I'm curious if my DRL's have been disengaged. I live in Canada and need them. I have the bi xenon HID's and auto lights. But the DRL's do not come on.

Two questions:
Which bulbs are supposed to function as DRL's?
When do they click on, when put into drive or e-brake released?

high beams. on at all times. flash your high beams, if they light up, then your DRLs have been coded off. need to code them back on.

The halogen high beams function as the DRL. They come on when you put the key into position 1. As far as I know, the HID aren't used as DRL.

Probably need to recode them.

Awesome thanks guys. One more question is there software one could purchase to do coding at home?

There's a BMW Scanner program available from an online retailer. After recent crap, I am almost ready to order it, I'd like to run my car with deleted corners at night amongst other things. It looks a bit difficult but I'm sure it'll be worth the effort.

I don't have the link available with me at the moment as I'm not home. Someone else will probably update you.

Have you purchased one of these? Does it work well?

Also I have a WIFI OBD2 Scanner, do you know if you can link the two?

yes i did purchase it from them and it works great, was able to code my oem alarm system, enable/disable DRL, power, program convenience options, etc.. it also informs you of any error codes on your car.
