No splice connector with 5 wires. I did check the whole splice panel.
I ended up reading a wiring diagram and figured out another way.
Can't explain that, not too sure what I did for once.

Re

Can someone please clarify on 95-99 E36 does the DRL turn on all lights (front and rear) or the front high beams only?
Also does anyone have a Canadian DRL available for sale?

On late 95-99, the DRL turns on high beams only on lower voltage.

Hey OP, I've wnated low beam DRL for sometime I have a 93 320i, this would probabaly be impossible for me to attempt so just wondering, is there any possible way to simply wire my HID's to a switch, i could care less if dashboard lights are on all the time as usual

**car is being frenched out currently, high beams painted yellow, so I want to be able to just flick off my HID's which are in my DRL and just run my fog lights, which are of course connected to fog light switch

Someone got to be willing to swap the Canadian DRL relay for a US version relay.
Please let me know.

just curious if this would work on a 1992 e36 and if not, is there another way to accomplish the same thing?

When you say parking lights does that include the front ones or just the rear?

On another note, has anyone found a solution for disabling the parking lights for the 93's?

And sorry to be bumping this semi-old thread.

I was playing with mine the other day, 93 318IS, and the low beam relay is actuated by one wire, so all you need is to switch this wire off and on, and it's a low amp wire too since all it does is control the relay!

Anyhow here's wut I found, and I will be doing this to my car in the next coming days and I will try to take pics and jot some notes.

Here is the write up thanks to STTHOMAS:

Ahh yes, the good old "running the new wire" method lol. I was hoping the simpler method in this thread would work but I guess not

Let me know how it goes once you give it a shot, and what tools/parts you need.

PS: Do you also have the 3 red/green wires as opposed to 5?
