Hello,

I'm searching for a way to activate the function that caused the DRL (low beams) to turn off when the parking brake (hand brake) is on. I have looked at the wiki-page for my car, but didn't find any adaptation that does that specifically. I see that this is a function that is pretty standard in the US, but not here in Norway. I would think it would be possible to change this in the coding? Any suggestions are appreciated.

The 8E electronics, being an almost 20 year old design, aren't terribly smart or flexible.

You could try changing the the country in the last digit of the coding in the 09-Cent.Elect. module. Right now it's a '2' for Nordic Countries without Bi-Xenon. I would try '4' for "Canada without Bi-Xenon". Canada did require DRLs back then. However, I suspect you will lose the rear DRLs that I think are mandatory in Norway, whereas only front DRLs were mandatory in Canada.
