08 Hid question

I want to install hids in my 08 fofo, however I do not know how to get rid of the drl's. On my brothers 06 it is just a fuse to pull, but I am not having the same luck. Any Ideas?

Please don't put them in your reflector housings, unless you plan to block the scattered light going above the "cutoff" with vinyl or paint on the lens of your headlight. Either that or go with a projetor retro or pnp projector headlight designed for your year.

Other than that, it is probably just a fuse like in your brothers '06. Check your manual.

I just checked the wiring diagrams. The daytime running lamps are configured into the SJB (Smart Junction Box). And unfortounatly unlike some ford vehicles there is no programmable parameter to turn them off. I just bought an 09 and put HID's in it. I just turn on my lights before I start my car and everything is fine. I noticed if i start my car then turn on my lights after the daytime running lights have been on then one cuts out and it cant turn them on until I put my park brake on then switch them on.
