    Hi Fred:

    You can get the dealer to reprogram the computer to think it is in a country that needs it ie: Canada.

    Being from here I can't seem to find a dealer that will go the other way, yet.

    Checked with local dealer was told the wiring is not in American made vehicle for daytime running lamps, something to do with rear lamps,bummer.

    I believe your dealer is incorrect, or just doesn't know how to do it. There's no change to the wiring, I don't BELIEVE. It's all in the computer. I inquired at mine, and I don't think they knew how to do it...they just said they'd have to charge their hourly rate of $70/hour (until they figured out how to do it I guess).

    Your dealer is wrong. Here is a link to a post of mine from almost a year ago. I watched while the tech did the job. About 5 minutes and no charge.

    Thumbs up

    Hi all,
    Good news, I found a dealer that actually should qualify for a five star after visiting 2 other dealers and was told you can not do it this dealer referred to TSB 08-041-04 reprogramed the BCM and they now work, best part the reprogram is under Warranty.

    Thanks for the follow up Fred . DRL activation has been a topic discussed a few times on this forum, with much debate over what is feasible or not. It helps to hear back from people like yourself who have experience.
