Re: Lighting FAQ / DIY (nater)

Headlight Switch Mods (keeping high beam/low beam/fogs on together/DISABLE DRLS/etc...
Thanks to user " A2B4GUY " for this contribution:

PASSAT: Jumpers for fog light relay *may work for other models*

DRL DISABLE
DRL disable on Passat B5 (but should work on other cars)
DRL Disable MK4 with pictures
The following comes thanks to the Old School GTi-VR6 mailing list (gti-vr6.net) :
Disabling DRL's on 1998 MK3's (scroll down and read from the bottom up - it makes more sense
)

MK4/B5.5 Headlight Switch Removal Procedure:
Quote, originally posted by zooks527 »

No diagram is required.
1 ) Press the existing switch in (push on the knob)
2 ) While holding it in, turn to the right. It will go a small amount and stop.
3 ) Pull gently. The switch will slide out.
4 ) Unplug harness at back.
5 ) Plug harness to new euroswitch switch
6 ) Slide back in
7 ) Turn left.
Under 60 seconds.
BTW, you don't need to pull the relay. You can also tape the pins on the back of the new switch. When I installed the Euroswitch in my 2004.5 Passat, I taped 'B' (pin 6, lights the DRLs when switch is off) and '56D' (pin 5, lights the DRLs with switch in first position).
Some cars need to have 'TFL' (pin 3) taped instead. Since TFL connects to nothing in my harness, I could have taped that as well.
HTH,
George

If this is not enough info, use search, select "archived" and use the search term: "disable daytime" and you'll find a couple pages (at least) worth of threads. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Lighting FAQ / DIY (nater)

RETROFITTING HID'S
**TRUE retrofitting - meaning, retrofitting true OEM HID optics into your halogen housings**

__________________________________________________________________

Thanks to MANY contributors for the following information on retrofitting HIDs into Jetta MK4 headlights (most info remains true for any car/any headlights)
