Why Don't My DRL Lights Work?....

On my 02 330i the bulbs for the DRL lights only work if I pull back on the bright light lever. Is there a way to make the DRL lights work? Is there a switch or something that I need to turn on?

but, yeah go to an Indy shop and have them do it for you. Call around and see who will do it cheaper before just going. The price can be pretty different between shops. $50 - $100

btw...pulling back on the stark doesn't turn on your DRL. You are actually "high-beeming" people.

If you're going to use AE then keep the DRLs off. Otherwise you'll have the 6000k halos with 4300k DRLs.
