  1. To all the GMC guys...I've got the fix! Firstly, just want to thank @spurshot for inspiring me to put this into motion. Ever since I saw the 14+ GMC's, I thought to myself hmm...I wonder if it's possible to make those bright DRL LED's run the same at night. I probably wouldn't have dived into this if it wasn't for Spurshot's How-To on the Fogs w/Highs as I used the same idea with this. So here it is, using the same 1N4004 diodes: BCM X4 (Black Connector) Pin 1 to Pin 7 Pin 2 goes to Pin 7 on BCM X5 (Brown Connector) See pictures below for the schematics. BEFORE & AFTER And yes...I'm putting in HID's this weekend. Just picked up a 2015 Denali CC 6.2L/8spd in exchange for my 2014 High Country and the mods are still in progress! Enjoy
  2. I just saw a Tahoe LT on my way home from work using the LEDs as DRLs at full 100% brightness just like the LTZ models. Yes, I am sure it was a LT model and it looked totally stock even with the entry level honeycomb pattern grille. He was going the opposite way so I couldn't stop him to ask. Someone out there has figured it out! Does anyone have an update for this mod?
  3. Last week I noticed when driving into the garage, that one of my DRL/low beam lights was out. I have a 2015 with the halogen lights, separate high beams. I first read some old posts on here about how to get at them. No problem, I bought a new set of H11 bulbs and went to replace them. I put the new bulb in the driver's side first since it is easier, the new bulb worked. (that old bulb still worked as well). Then I go yank the air box out to get at the passenger side. put new bulb in. After reassembling everything I tested it out by turning on my headlights, and lo and behold, this brand new bulb does not light up. After inspecting the old bulb, I cannot see any sign of it burning out either, no black, nothing broken inside the glass. So my question is, would there be anything I can easily check that would cause this if it is a wiring issue? I'm not terribly worried about it now since I do very little driving after dark and I will be taking my truck in for an inspection right before my 36 month warranty runs out in June. Just wondering if this has been encountered before. I don't want to make a habit of replacing bulbs only to find out they are not the problem. Replacing the passenger side bulb is not fun.
  4. I bought a 2000 Silverado 1500 about a year ago and ever since I've had it, my DRls do not work, however, when i pull my emergency brake my entire headlight system comes on, both headlights and my brake lights as well. I have new headlights i would like to install but i want to solve this issue if there is one before i put them in.
  5. Hey Everyone, new to the forum and the truck, just picked up a 2011 Sierra 3500HD Duramax Denali. Truck originally from Canada and now in the US. Been working through some of the quirks from the previous owner. One of the things I am trying to track down is why the DRLs never come on. I have read a lot of users trying to disable DRLs, especially Canadian trucks for hunting and such. Thats not me. I just installed some Spec D Projector headlights with C's. That is the reason I would like the DRLS to work. Also I beleive the previous owner had HIDs (just a guess based on the remnants of double sided tape behind headlight housing where i would mount ballansts) and users try to bypass DRLs to extend HID life (from what I read) That being said. Here is what I have checked so far: All the fuses needed for DRLs Replaced Ambient Light Sensor Also tested C Lamps with battery and those are working, just not on truck. Looks like the wiring harness for the headlights has been altered slightly or extended but seems to be correct. I dont know if there is a diode in this year of vehicle- havent checked yet. Just starting to through it out there and see what sticks, going to start digging into it more shortly but wanted to get the conversation going (good or bad) to see if i can get this figured out. Appreciate the help. Move topic where ever it needs if in wrong section. Few picks of the truck when i got it to where it is now.
  6. Hi there so my DRL lights stopped working. It started with one and now both are out..changed the bulbs and no fix..I changed the sockets as they were showing signs of burnt and no fix..checked all fuses and all good. Headlights always on and DRL do not kick in...any help please
  7. Looking to replace the headlights on my 2015 Sierra Denali but most of the headlights I’m finding say they aren’t compatible with trucks that have factory DRL’s. Has anyone replaced their headlights with one of these that say or have you found a pair that are compatible? I really like the 2016+ LED Headlights but don’t want to drop $1,000+ on them. Thanks for the help!
  8. Looking for information on what Body Control Module BCM controls the Daytime Running Lights DRL on my 2014 Silverado. Does anyone have schematics, wire diagrams, component locations of the BCM. I want to use the wire from the DRL at the BCM for LED strips instead of using the headlights.
  9. At night every once in a while my passenger side LED DRL and DRL tail light wont come on. Does anyone know the issue of this and what needs to be fixed? I've searched all of the place and haven't found any good answers.
  10. Hello all, I’m kind of wondering, has anybody ever installed this DRL kit from Diode Dynamics? It basically lets you choose between amber and white LEDs. Yesterday I came across a 2016+ Silverado with amber LEDs at night and it was sick!! Might be looking to make something similar but I want to see more pictures of this kit installed and hear anything someone might have to say about the quality. here’s a video:
  11. I have a 2000 Escalade problem with no DRL. I have run the diagnostics and it points to the DRL diode. I know most diodes are located right under the steering wheel. Most of the locators list the diode somewhere around the radio. Is it possible that the diode is in the DRL module? The module is easily found but I cannot locate the diode. I am suspecting it does not have one. Is there a way to determine if the circuitry was changed in the late 2000?
  12. I have a low beam out on my 2013 1500. I'd like to replace them with leds but I'm not sure which ones play well with the auto lights and drl stuff. Anyone have suggestions or reviews on leds that are on the current market?
  13. Both of the park lights/DRLs on my 2015 Suburban (138k miles) are only half light. As shown in the picture, specifically the outer 4 LEDs on each side. I grabbed this screenshot from a video posted on Youtube with minimal comments as to a fix other then replace by dealer and adding a ground... does anyone else have this problem or found a fix? I have checked the Fuses and relay and all seem to be okay. I also think it is a little bit strange that both sides are out at the same time...

  14. 99 Silverado, right side DRL is not working. I replaced both bulbs with new LED ones, and STILL the right side doesn't work. Is this a relay or some sort of DRL module issue then?
  15. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 9/18/18 As the few remaining snow piles melted away last spring, we wrote about our impressions installing the latest LED lights from Sylvania. The Cube-X and the company's new parabolic LED spot light bars. A few weeks later, we gave away a set of Cube X's to one lucky forum member, @Veee24 This summer RJ ( @Veee24) installed his new Cube-X lights and sent us an update. We asked him how he liked the lights and how the install went. He told us: We think the end result is pretty amazing. RJ's sick 1997 Chevy Silverado. Check out the photos above and below and let us know what you think about RJs ride and his Sylvania Cube-X LED lights.
  16. I have a 2015 silverado from Canada I bought headlight covers and tail light covers for the truck not realizing that the lights stay on all the time while in drive is there a way to disable the drls while in gear.. doesn't look very good with lights on under the covers.. no drl relay that I could find

    added this LED dash light to the DRL repair.

    Diode DRL 1996

    From the album: random

    led headlamps allowed a much less robust diode. This one is 10A, no heatsink.
