Any way to run cornering lights full time?

Does anyone know if there is a way to run these lights along side the headlights? Would run them as "fog lights" though i've never seen anything on how to get this to work. No idea if it would be a wiring or coding project.

Must be a way to code them. On my E90, those lights are on all the time the headlights are not turned on, they are the DRL lights.

When you are in reverse they both come on. So I would think you could code the headlights that you were always in reverse. ?

I want to code mine to stay on as long as the blinker is on, instead of having that time-out that they normally have

You should be able to. If I remember right all you have to do is tell the car what bulb to use for the daytime running lights. Ie AE, cornering, ambers, etc.

Carly has the option to set what lights you want as your DRL. Can set lows, highs, corner or AE, or combinations of the above IIRC. Gotta set the values equal across all keys and options but it works.

I bookmark things and come back when a solution appears ...



So I used ProTool to do some work. Under the FRM stuff there is a voltage option. Under there you can fiddle with stuff. Not sure what I did but now my cornering lights come on with my high beams (adaptive lights).

So I'm going to say something in there can do this.
