Looks good. Like the look of the silverstar ambers turn signals too on a white ave. And the blueish highs. Are those silverstar drls too?

Yup, those are SilverStar turnsignal bulbs as well as DRLs, LED amber turnsignals, and the blueish highs are actually XENON bulbs that I tried out on my Bimmer and liked them enough to put on the AV.

Then I also replaced my tow hooks with the PIAA 2100XT driving lights, which also have a blueish tint.

OKay,

Did the mod...worked fine.......did a bulb check, threw the hazards on...poof no more DRL.

Reach in the truck, flick on the headlights manually...poof DRL back.

Turn headlights off...no DRLs.

What the heck happened?!?!?!?

did you connect the green wire? ouch! pricey mistake

















:kidding: I would put everything back to the way it was and verify that it works and then follow the instructions word for word. They are pretty easy and correct.

This is an easy mod for an 02. WHich mods did you do FT DRL's and all on hi?

Okay, I got a chance this AM to put it all back the way it was from day 1......DRL work as GM intended.

Re did the mod, double checked everything....the only way I can get the DRL to come on is if I manually turn on the headlamps.

Do I have the one truck that rolled off the line in 02' that won't play nice with others?

Okay,

I put it all back to stock in the fusebox, and decided to do the mod inside the truck.

Spliced into the green black wire, put it to ground, and it works like a charm :D

I'm good to go now!

Thanks for the help!

ok help me out here. I have one DRL that likes to not go on every-now and then. Now im pretty sure its a bad connection in the light in the light housing because if i give it a good tap it will go on. I have tried flipping around the bulbs, cleaning up the metal connectors, and also putting dielectric grease. And it always is either on or off when i start the truck. any ideas to fix it?

I just did this mod tonight. Easy! Took me maybe 15 minutes to have it working and that included running back and forth to the computer so not to mess something up.

This mod is so easy a FORD owner could do it! :kidding:
