Yeah that doesn't make any sense. in the auto position, the lights only turn on when it detects darkness through a light sensor in your mirror usually. There is no daylight function.

If you are wanting it on, only during the day and turn off when the headlights are on, which is what I think you're getting at. I would tap it to your DRL wires.

I get what you are asking. You want the option of turning the lights off, parking without headlights, parking with headlights and halo, and auto with halos on all the time.

You want the option of everything off, but still the fancy auto low beam switch with halos on. I don't know how to do it, just seemed like clarifying was needed lol

It would honestly be easier for you to just have it wired to be on all the time. Then add a separate switch to turn it off yourself. I was thinking of maybe using an NC (normally closed) relay, but then it would have the side effect of the angels being on while the car is off

Not if you give it 12v switched,

Yeah I guess he could run a new 12v switched from the fusebox. But it wouldn't really solve his problem. It would only work for half of the problem. You'd need like multiple relays to get it to work like he wants it honestly. But I mean if he's down to do all that wiring work sure. I'd just do a separate switch because it's the fastest and easiest solution. It would give him the option to turn them on while the car is off too, to take pictures lol I have to like lock/unlock the car, but then the interior lights get in the shot too.
