Comprimises: Prepare for science: The obnoxious flickering LED DRLs you see in the world are actually illegal. They happen when a manufacturer has utilized something called PWM or Pulse Width Modulation. It’s a cheap workaround for them that allows the high beam headlamps to run at reduced power to provide the DRL function. It's done this way because the maximum safe, effective and legal brightness for a DRL is much lower than the minimum for a high beam headlamp. It looks terrible, but it meets legal requirements, it's cheap to install, and that's pretty much all the automakers care about.
The Problem with LED + PWM: LEDs bulbs are different than halogen bulbs. They're instant-on and instant-off, so PWM feed doesn't dim them--it just makes them flicker as mentioned above. Many companies claim you can fix the problem by using what they call a "CANbus decoder" or capacitor-based "anti-flicker" module to solve the problem, but that's wrong. Some of those devices may eliminate flicker, but your daytime running lights will operate at full high beam intensity and produce lots of glare during the day and dusk--don't be that guy!
The Proper Solution:What you need is a product designed to fix the problem the way it should’ve been from the start at the vehicle manufacturer. Our Xtreme Pro DRL Driver is that solution. It knows precisely how to handle both jobs. So when it’s time for the DRL they get 12% of total possible intensity with ZERO flicker. When it’s time for the high beam they get full power as they should. Both will look perfect because they are with this driver.
Installation: You're not going to need any additional modules, CANbus components, jumper wires, or anything else. Already have an Xtreme Pro LED kit? The Xtreme Pro DRL Driver is a simple 1:1 drop-in replacement for the standard 9005 Xtreme Pro driver. Simply remove your current Xtreme Pro driver (and any anti-flicker devices you might have installed) and install the Xtreme Pro DRL Driver. Have a different type or brand of LED kit? Sorry, this driver won't work for you--it's engineered specifically for the XenonDepot Xtreme Pro LED series.
Will it work on my car? We've specifically designed this product around the 5th-generation Toyota 4Runner 9005 high beam / DRL application, but many other vehicles use a similar PWM power signature for DRL mode. We're busily working to compile a database of validated applications.
