Default please help with Daytime running light led stripes wiring

have a problem wiring up a led stripes to a oem drl/turn signal so basically oem connector has one coloured and two black wires one black wire in the middle has yellow stripe, i thought it should be simple one common ground and one positive to a blinker and one positive to a daytime running lights.
wright now the orange bulb is running as DRL when you drive and starts blinking if you're turning the signal on, what i want to do is use LED as a DRL and orange bulb only for turn signal as its gonna look like a Christmas tree white led stripes together with orange bulb as DRL. is there any way to separate DRL from turn signal ? help would really appreciated as pt is without headlight now.

Would like to help and I'm sure there's others that would too but the DRL's aren't on the cars in the U.S.

Maybe someone good with electrics and figure out what's wrong by reading your explanation and without having the schematic to go by. Our Haynes and Chilton manuals don't mention them.

The 01-04 On-Line Repair Manual has a paragraph on them:



But no diagram to go with it.

ok i found another solution is there a wire to cut to disable DRL and then hook up the LED to that cutted wire so turn signal bulb will not receive the DRL contact instead it will go to LED stripes ? anyone knows how to disable DRL ? on 2001 and up models? thank

ok here it is the problem solution :



from diagram seen that DRL module is in the instrument cluster and comes like a one unit and from IC coming the same two positives wires TAN/RED for one side and LIGHTGREEN/ORANGE for another side, these wires can be found by the turnsignal bulb plug under the hood it means there is actually no way to disable DRL without rewiring the turnsignal as crewzin stated signal from blinker relay goes to I/C so basically you haave to wire turnsignal directly from blinker relay pass the I/C which has DRL internally.
