Change wiring - DRL is at 100%

Hi all,

I have a 2002 Focus SE that I bought while I was in the US. When I moved to Canada, I asked the dealer to add DRL as it is a requirement in Canada.

I later realized that the dealer made the following changes :
1) The low beam is being used as DRL
2) The light is always switched on at 100%, as I do not see any difference in the intensity even when I turn the switch from Off to "LIGHTS" position


I want to remove this wiring, so that I can use the Parking lights for DRL.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

DRL's were always really close to full strength low beams, i would guess %90 of the intensity
