2000 Forester Daytime Running Lights
Posted 12 September 2003 - 04:19 PM
It does not have daytime running lights. Is there any way to "activate" them or install them on this vehicle ?
Thanks in advance for your help.

In all the time in my Soob's since 1988 my headlights have been on about 98% of my driving time.

And since half of PA is under construction it is much better to just leave them on.

As pointed out, the lights are switched with the ignition on Subaru's, so you don't have to worry about leaving them on.
When it became law here, I recall reading one guys comment. "We've always had DRL's... we just use to call them low beams."
You might want to try the Eaglite bulbs. You can get them from midnightmoose. I've been getting "extremely" long life from them... and I'm even using higher wattage bulbs. (Note, I wouldn't recommend that if you are going to leave your lights on all the time.)

- DRL lights the high beams at a lower power, so your headlights don't wear out as quickly.
- Some insurance companies give you reduced rates if you have DRL verifiably installed (they won't if you just tell them you leave your lights on all the time).

The great feature is that when the key is off, the lights go off.
