Re: Check oil level warning not switching off after adding oil

More regular checks on oil level? Never seem a low oil level warning on any car I own.

Re: Best source for LED DRL bulbs?

Did you try them the other way round? Polarity sensitive.

Re: Estimated repair cost?...

Easily fixable, insurance companies crack me up, it would be a sin to scrap that. You could probably bolt the parts on yourself , its not that complicated then just have it painted.

Re: How do I disable DRL

Not read up on auto light switch mod yet! I take it that additional pins to replace those in the plug are readily available? Any idea of the name of them - or a link?

Re: How do I disable DRL

Sounds familiar, I'm the car nut out washing and polishing my son's car while he's in the house!

Do I not need to be disconnecting the tfl pin to turn off the dip beam and sidelight drls? Or have you cut that wire after the switch plug connector?

Re: How do I disable DRL

The 'young driver' is not mechanically minded in the slightest and doesn't do car mods, to be fair the always on dip beam lights probably do not bother him one bit, it's me who had an issue with them as soon as we picked it up and he was driving home behind me I was wondering why he had put his head...

Re: How do I disable DRL

Hi thanks for that, did a few searches and this old thread seems to be similar to what I'm asking. No intention of removing drls totally just don't see the need to have dipped headlights and sidelights both on permanently. Sidelights with led bulbs would be my preference for modern looking drls.

Re: How do I disable DRL

Ok thanks, shame that TFL pin knocks out all the DRLs, hoped that it just deactivated the headlights and left the rest. I've no issues adding another circuit as you have done, wired plenty of relays and spotlamps in my day, old school too! I'm wondering is this something that can easily be done with...

Re: How do I disable DRL

Old thread revival. 1st of many stupid questions probably. Son picked his 2014 Rline up tonight. It seems to have both side lights and dipped beam headlights activated as drls when running and headlight switch in position '0' when you switch to just side lights the dipped beam lights go out, and the...

Re: Best engine?

No not on purpose, it would have been ideal if it was a face-lift model but couldn't fault it, really tidy car. Will probably update the stereo in due course but other than that it seems to tick all the boxes. He'll collect it on Tuesday.
