I did it by hardwire it because I didn't have my GT1-NCS-Inpa softwares at that time.

To disable the DRL (halogen), if you have access to a NCS setup, you just disable it. If you are in Canada or any other country where the DRL are mandatory, only NCS will be able to do the change, not GT1. The reason is because GT1 reads the country code when connecting, and disable options that are not allowed for those country.

If you want to do it the hardware way, like I did, just rewire your DRL like the schematic I put below.
When there is 12v coming from the car (flashing to pass), the 12v relay kicks in and send that 12v to the halogen bulb. When running normally, there is 6v going to the relay, but it is not enough voltage to trigger the relay, so no voltage to the bulb. The 10 ohms resistor is there to put a load and avoid the burnt light indicator. You will need to install a resistor on each side L-R, but the relay circuit can be used to feed both DRL.


For the Angel Eyes, it is similar. You need to use the red-white wire in the ECU box (red wire with white stripes). You will see many wires with that color, just use the one with the biggest size. They are all ignition 12v feeding different parst of the car. Disconnect your battery before doing connections in the ECU box to be on the safe side. Without cutting the wire, just skin a portion of the insulation, and feed a new wire in the rubber grommet into the ECU box and solder it to the red-white wire and tape it.
Again the resistor circuit needs to be repeated on both sides but the relay can feed both AEs.

I did that modification on my E46 (2004-2011) and my E53 (2011-now) and it works very well.

how did you get your side indicators off to just have the angel eyes alone?

Nice, thanks a bunch! I will surely give this a try. I have NCS Expert and have my DRLs disabled already, but now I just flip the switch to parking lights when I drive.

I noticed you know what you're talking about with wiring and eletronics, so I'm gonna give it a shot and ask; would you know how to hard wire the angel eyes and license plate lights to come on when I unlock the car? I know theoretically, I just have to wire power from my interior lights to my angel eyes and license plate lights right? But I'm wondering if I do this, than every time I open my interior lights my angel eyes and license plate lights will come on? or if my car on with lights switch in parking lights (AE and License plate light on) and I turn on my interior lights, what will happen?

Sorry, I haven't really got a clue how this works, and I think one of my biggest pet peeves right now is not being able to have my angel eyes and license plate lights come on when I unlock, and not being able to fold mirrors when I lock.

90% of things that I wanted to have programmed - are done:

got the windows roll up/down when the door is open
windows/sunroof close on remote
high beams on with bi-xenon
doors auto lock
steering wheel tilt upon entry
steering wheel extend upon entry
drivers seat into position upon entry
cold monitoring off for license plate lights

things that were done from before:

fogs simultaneous with high beams
gong off for key left in ignition
gong off for seat belt (warning is still in the cluster)
Car clock synchronized to GPS time beacon
front turn signals are off as side markers
sunroof autoclose on rain sensor
cold monitoring off for Angel Eyes


Things to do:

single push of remote to unlock all doors
autoclose sunroof to remain operational while car is off
Angel eyes ON while engine is running

Things that can't be done:

mirrors autofold on remote
doors unlock with key out
car self driving

I had my X coded this past week. Got the following features added to the X

1. All the doors unlock with just a single push on the remote button.

2. All the doors self lock when the car is moving.

3. All the windows and sunroof open with the remote.

4. All the windows and sunroof close with the remote

5. can blind the driver in front of me with my fog lights and high beams.

6. Window roll up safety feature disable so that the window will roll up with the door open.

I did not code the X myself because

1. After reading about how to install DIS and get it running I decided I didn't want to go searching through the net and down loading a bunch of files on a bunch of dubious websites.

2. Although I have a cable for when I use to use Carsoft 6.5 for my E34 I wasn't sure that it will work on my new computer with a usb to serial adapter since the cable is a serial cable and my Old laptop had a serial port, new laptop don't have a serial port. So I would either have to buy an adapter or a new cable.

3. Didn't want to f__k up the X and had to bring it to a dealer.

4. So for $60 bucks I got it coded.

The guy was in Chicago for the coding (visiting his girlfriend parents for the Holidays) but if I had problem he could send me a file and cable and he could remotely recode my car, as long as I had access to the internet in my garage.

His face book page is

http://www.facebook.com/Tripl3OCoding?fref=ts

A side note, my X has the port in the engine compartment and the OBD II port under the dash. He used the port in the engine compartment because he said that some of the modules can only be access through the port in the engine compartment. So if you can't code something check to see if you have the round port in the engine compartment.

lol! yep - you can really light up the road with fogs, HID and hi beams. Great modificaiton.

Glad you got your X coded!!!

will you please do a tutorial, write up? or is it easy to naviagate knowing the values to change?

i would not say it is easy, as a matter of fact, it is ratehr not easy... I've done a ton of reading and then it became easy... lol...
I could write up the list of the codes that I have found in my car - but not right now, as i am still in the back up camera write up mode...
