Installing Daytime Running Lights?

Mon Oct 28, 2002 11:46 am

Hey everyone , since im applying to mostly Canadian Universities a thought suddenly crossed my mind...if I want to import my vehicle into Canada it has to have Daytime running lights. Is it very hard to install these things? How much does it cost usually? I know some of you are fairly knowledgeable about vehicles so I figured this might be a good group to get an idea from...btw , I drive a 2002 Nissan Xterra.

Also don't forget the speed limits have not suddenly doubled when you cross the border, those are "kilometres"  Big grin

There is no requirement for DRL, only that new vehicles have them since whenever the law came in. My 78 280Z doesn`t have them, and I am not required to use headlights, although I always do.

That would explain that very excitable Mountie I passed up by Prince George a couple of years ago.

Avt , I was looking on the transportation canada's website and it said all imported vehicles had to have daytime running lights...maybe its just an ontario thing then?

I guess that is possible. Each province has different laws on vehicle standards, and the federal gov`t (Transport Canada) regulates importing vehicles. You can buy a box that mounts under the hood and puts the headlights on whenever the ignition is on. These are aftermarket items. If you have to install DRL, and I wouldn't until I was forced to, check with Nissan, you might be able to just plug in a module without wiring changes. Good luck!

This sucks big time. I´m so against this regulation - we´re going to have it introduced in the EU very shortly.
Bah, humbug!  Pissed
