2019 Premium 6 speed, I have converted all external lights to LED, but have yet to find a 9005 LED that does DRL and High Beam (with proper lighting levels for the two modes).

My rear turn signal are 7440A LED with built-in resistor, however, I have tried front 744NA LED bulbs with and without resistors (both built-in and external). External resistors blew my turn signal fuse.

Anyone make either of the situations work?

Thanks!

these work as my front turn signal, built in resistor.

You will have a hard time getting the DRL to work with any LED bulb. I tried some anti flicker harnesses and they didn't work. I ended up unplugging the 9005 bulb and using the existing high beam harness (9005 connector) as a trigger for my high beam. I have a separate LED strip for my DRL that's tapped to fuse box behind the knee panel inside. I found that the fuses in the engine bay do some sort of electrical check and turned on my drl when I tapped to that fuse after the car is off.I retrofitted bi-led projectors but the solution should work with your application if you want to make your own harness.

Never thought I'd see the day you need an engineering degree to change a car light bulb. Lol. It's gotten crazy. No flash module...that's taken care of by the BCM or as I like to put it...The Bullshite Control Module. I used a bunch of JDMTOY lights in my FRS with great results. I'm just getting started on my Limited Crosstrek. I'm finding out how interconnected everything is in the 2019.

If you read under fitment it says the following.
DRL Function: Operates at full brightness for DRL

So it doesn't get dimmer for DRL.
