    Default auto headlight switch AND daytime running light

    Well.

    Just had my EX rain/light sensor + auto light switch fitted. (07 estate)

    However...

    Living in Denmark, daytime running light (drl) is mandatory. Both the UEC and REC are set to daytime running light version 2.

    When the car stands with ignition on and the light switch is set to auto - the lights are on as they should be. However when I start the engine, the daytime lights switch off and the instrument panel lighting come on...

    So the functionality is "perfect" with ignition on/engine off - the light sensor registers darkness perfect, and changes the instrumental panel lighting accordingley - but as soon as the engine is started, it doesn't work...

    Hi,

    I did get the Happy light show, however I have some issues with it discharging the car (not sure if it could be down to the fact that I turned it the wrong way round first time installing, and this potentially could have this effect)

    However haven't tried since...

    But through research, this is the THE only way of using auto headlight switch, light sensor "proper daytime lights, as required in DK" with OEM/standard lights... (I'm sure that through soldering etc this can be done in a different way, but if you don't want to do hardware modifications like that, then HLS is the way to go)
