Thanks for the heads up, I appreciate your thoughts. I've given up on LEDs for the DRLs, so I got one setup for high beams only, which is fine by me. I got the LEDs to work on the parking lights and they light up with the headlamps on low beams so I'm cool with it. Maybe there's a solution to this issue sometime in the future. The stock DRL bulbs are so wimpy, .No way to fix flickering for the DRL on an 03+. Instead of PWM they use voltage as far as I can tell, so most LEDs either flicker or run full power. Both of which are bad.
You are correct. I misstated my comment earlier. The DRL is the same bulb as the high beam bulb. I replaced it with a LED bulb and attached a capacitor to stop the flickering in DRL mode, but the LED does not work in DRL mode with the capacitor coupling, so I'm ok with that setup, it just lights up on high beam without flickering. I have LEDs in the parking light socket and use the parking light mode to light up the LED. The LED parking lights up with my halogen low beams. Until I find a way to stop the flickering in DRL mode I'm happy with the setup for now. As you correctly stated that the voltages are different in the two modes so the LEDs are not currently designed to accommodate the voltage variation.I'm unsure what you mean. The DRL is the high beam on 03s. It's the low beam on 00-02s.
I forgot to state that that its in the owners manual.Halo buddy, I have an '04 so I'm trying to find an LED that does not flicker. I have not found the perfect fit yet in my quest. And thank you for your efforts in aiding my predicament, as I appreciate cyclehead, souric( I can't remember his handle correctly), and you for all your knowledge and sharing your knowledge with us spyder "newbies".
