more or less a resistor that they put in line with your drl relay switch, i would assume anyway.


I'm getting mine done here in a few days.

I got the same notice. I already disabled my DRL's by cutting the wires, so I am not going to worry about it.

Yeah, the DRLs kinda bite. I've held off disabling mine only because of the handbrake feature that keeps them shut off. There should be some sort of manual control switch for them.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

You could always flip the light switch to turn on your parking lights...won't be exactly the same but close. The only thing is to remember to turn them off.

What year Celica is that for? I'm having issues with my laptop shutting off on me when I'm in anything but Safe Mode...It's driving me nuts. Safe Mode makes IE look all weird with dots.
