Hi i have the Mz3 with these healdlights, see below.



I initially thought the high beam would act like the DRL when the car is in drive or neutral, but this was not the case.

The local dealership was of no help, but in the car manual it says you can activate / or dis-activate it.

Since mine seems dis-activated, Anyone know how we can activate the DRL on the 2014 Mazda3 ??

thanks

This is my first post. I have a 2015 3i GT with auto. So far the only mod i've done is de-activate DRL I used the procedure for the 2013 CX5, found it on the Mazda 247 board. It toggles lights on/off.

Google it for exact procedure. Basically:

Apply emergency brake
Turn ignition to on position- but don't start. (2 pushes on ignition button)
Put car in drive
Turn parking lights on and off 5 times quickly
Turn hazard lights on and off 5 times quickly (10 pushes)
Turn parking lights on and off 5 times quickly
This whole procedure from the application of Parking brake to end must be done within 23 seconds.
I had to try it several times but it did eventually work!

Good luck!

Seems easier to just pull the fuse if you want to disable the DRL.



To OP, since you said your car doesn't have DRL, maybe check to see if you have the fuse in place. If not, try adding a fuse there and see if it'll activate the DRL.

I did the 2013 CX-5 procedure above. It worked!!! Took a couple of tries to get it to work. I hate the halogen DRL's.

Hi friends,

When i checked the fuse box, it didnt have the DRL fuse plugged in.

I added one and did the procedures, but to no avail :(

Since i believe DRLs are helpful in preventing accidents, I have purchased a DRL intergrated in the Foglights on ebay.

When i have it installed i will post a pic.

Hope it will look good while still being effective
