You can disable the DRLs if you want.

Going off (possibly faulty) memory here, so check carefully before you do it.

Locate the fuse box under the hood, open it. In the corner that is closest to you and the center of the vehicle (lower-left, if you will), there is a jumper. It looks a lot like a fuse, but it's a different color. There are a few other fuses along the front edge, and a few relays in the rest of that location. The one you are looking for should be labeled "SHORT PIN". Pull it, you will no longer have DRLs.

My '05 did not come to me with DRLs enabled. By searching this forum many years ago, I found that adding DRLs was as simple as adding that short pin. You can also use any normal fuse, as it only completes a ground path for a relay.

thank you for the info. I will disable it if causes future problems.

high beams works fine. It just flashes when I turn off the headlights(regular DRL kicks in) because there isnt enough juice going to the led driver.
Thanks. I meant does flashing the brights quickly work as expected or does it take more than a second for the brights to illuminate at full intensity? I had cheap H4 style LEDs years ago a quick tug on the stalk wasn’t enough for a meaningful flash of the brights. High beams worked otherwise.

When I flash hi beams, Both hi and low beams flashes. I hope that’s how it was designed to work. On Hondas/acuras only hi beam flashes.

2008 Sienna XLE-
For my high beam/DRL, I'm using the IJDMTOY adapter - the R1, with the 9005 bulb from Cougar Mountain. I have correct DRL and high beam functions. The DRL is less bright than the high beam so no DRL blinding of oncoming traffic. I tried several 9005 bulbs and this is the one that worked in my van.


The low beams are HID. I put them in a long time ago and did not want to change to LED since I'd have to re-aim. The current HID is aimed well so I can see and don't bother oncoming traffic.

This works well for me. Your success could vary, of course.

on my 2008 I would like to run a lightbar off the high beam wire to a relay to the bar ,which wire do I get to splice into? I have a small lightbar on my 4x4 and it makes a world of difference
