I would like help making a wiring modification to my 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback to add Daytime running lights. My wiring diagram shows a wiring harness ready to accept the following parts - A control module 84067ac000, two relays - 82501aa050 and 82501aa060, resistor - 84057aa010. Also there is a spot for a diode i don't know the part number of but none of these parts are either available or if you can locate them they are expensive and take time to get here.

I would like to wire my own solution with the low beams although I am open to using the fog lights if there is a cleaner and easier hack for that. Looking for the simplest least intrusive solution requiring hacking the least number of wires. Presumably using a relay in engine compartment is the way to go? Can someone help me with detailed instructions on this? I would like to get it done in the next couple days I have a deadline for car safety inspection. I have never wired a relay before but ready to do it. Thank you :)

Also the low beam and high beam wires at the bulb go to ground when they are activated, I suppose that is called ground switching? With a common wire at 12 v

Look up David Levy relay application guide. It has relay schematics for diy automotive applications. You will find several options on how to do it.

thanks for the tip, I am only seeing the 6th edition online in PDF and it does not have anything for DRL

@intrepid 78 Try taking a look at this: https://legacygt.com/forums/showthread.php/fog-drl-248136.html
It's not at all applicable to your model/year, but this seems to walk through the process overall pretty well. You'll have to be conscious of all the differences, though.

I'm nosy, too -- are you being required to have DRLs on this car for the gov inspection? Don't they allow it as-is, if it wasn't built that way? How'd it go?

Apparently, it is is a requirement for the Ontario (provincial) vehicle safety inspection.
