Grand Prix Lighting

Postby Shooter61 » Sun Aug 28, 2005 2:15 pm

On my 98 GP I have always running head lights, when it starts to get to dusk though I would like to be able to turn them off (or just have them on when it's dark) and just run my parking lights and fog lights, is there anyway I can wire (SIMPLY WIRE) my headlights so they are not ALWAYS on, but will also turn on automatically when it's dark?

Is there a fuse for "daytime running lights"? If so, pull it out and voila. :)

Wouldn't the censor or how ever it knows that it's dark out be on a serperate fuse?? of course it's probably all fused together. I'll have to look into that do you think the fuse would be in the fuse box in my glove box or under the hood?

Well if the above suggestion doesn't work, you could always set the E-brake on the first notch...

What sucks is the automatic turn on at low light, I think there is a way to bypass that though, I will look into it

Twilight Sentinel is a little knob (or slider) that tells the sensor how sensitive to be. In other words, with the Twilight on a lower level, the lights won't turn on until it get darker than if it was on a high level.
