How to program fogs as DRLs for 2nd gen

After much research I finally had my fogs programmed to run as DRLs by a Nissan technician this morning...at no charge. Most technicians are not familiar with where to go in the programming as I found out after contacting a few dealers. Below are the main steps that he shared with me.

-Technician needs to get to "Reprogram/Configuration" opening screen.....this takes about 5 to 10 minutes to get into. At this time the BCM needs to be reprogrammed through Consult 3. The second option down is where the DRLs can be turned on.

My dealer does it so I knew it could be done. Others still don't agree because their dealers didn't know about it.

Awesome if we could sticky this for other members looking to do this. I'll definitely be taking the insight to my dealership when I ask them to do this (just in case).

I ended up paying $200 to have my fogs reprogrammed as DRLs around 3yrs ago and at that time no-one really knew how to do it.

I assumed that the Norwood dealership billed me for the time it took for them to figure it out! But since the service adviser went to great lengths to work with me and the techs to get this done, I paid without complaining.

I subsequently had aftermarket LED DRL's fitted that come on with the fogs (and had the fog bulbs replaced with HID bulbs that match the LEDS) and I'm pretty happy with the result.

What wattage HID bulbs did you use for fogs?

I dont know the wattage. It was done by a shop I was recommended to go to by a forum member.

But I think I have the packaging somewhere. I'll check and get back.
I was a little wary putting them in but decided to risk it after hearing that the forum member had had them installed for a year without a problem.

I wanted to use HIDs as well, but could only find 55W which I know would be too hot for the housing.

LEDs came in sooner than I expected. Really like the way they look...for only $15.

@audiophile Nice! Was that a straight plug & play or did you have to use an adapter + relay? Also, how does the light output compare vs the factory bulbs?

Thanks!...straight plug n play. They don't throw as much light as the stock bulbs, but I knew that, and wasn't what I was looking for. I wanted a brighter, whiter light as DRLs. We don't get any fog here in the Valley of the Sun!

Cool, appreciate if you could share if you start to see changes in output after a few weeks of use.
