Anyone know how to disable DRL on 18 crosstrek? I installed HIDs and they flicker when DRLs are on.. 17s back you could unhook a resistor but I can't find it on my 18..
I bought a ballast from OPT7 I think was from that keeps 12 v on the DRL.. Probably not good for HIDs running all the time but was only fix I could find.. I can't find the relay on my 18 like the 17s back has.. It's not beside passenger front wheel..They are controlled by the BCM now. I have feelers out to see of they can be turned off by hacking the CANBUS. Otherwise there is someone on the forum who posted instruction on how to disable with a relay.
For some strange odd reason the entire document wouldn't copy for me to past. Hint Hint, the DRL its near the horn on passenger side under vehicle.
LIGHTING SYSTEM > Day Time Running Resistor
1. Disconnect the ground cable from battery. NOTE">
2. Lift up the vehicle.
3. Remove the screw and clips, and turn over the front side of the mud guard - front.
4. Remove the resistor assembly - daytime running light.
The resistor may become hot. Be careful not to burn yourself when removing it.
(1) Disconnect the connector.
(2) Remove the bolts, then remove the resistor assembly - daytime running light.

Unless they changed it for a 2019, that would be incorrect info. 2018+ do not have that DRL resistor. Crosstreks prior to 2018 have that resistor behind the bumper.Yes, it applies to 19's. . .I haven't disconnected mine as of yet, I'm concerned it might throw a code. If you disconnect your's, post if it throws a code. . . I'm always hesitant about altering things when a vehicle is under warranty, I don't want the finger pointing if shyt happens. . .
