Default Daylight Running Lights of 2012 F150 Platinum

It appears that the 2012 uses two parts to add DRL to a 2012 F150; 1. A Relay Block, Part YL1Z-13B218-AA, and 2. A Resistor XL3Z-14A601-AA. The part for the Relay Block is flaged, No Longer Available. Are these the correct parts? and if so, what is the correct number for the Relay Block?

I had DRL's added to a 2004 and a 2007 F150. The part at that time was a single part with about nine wires and was wired into the Light Switch unit. Is this still the unit to use?

My 2011 FX4 just needed a quick change in the computer by the dealer before I picked it up to enable the DRL. That is odd, mine was made in Michigan, not a fleet or Canadian model.

Like to know myself how turn off the DRL's, love the look of my pickup with just the parklights and fogs on with the DRL's off while in park looks badass to me but that's my opinion!!

if its a 2012
all you need to have drls turned on is a computer flip of a switch
any dealer can do it, they plug in. scroll to the lamps section and select drl "ON"
takes a bout 1 minute

i had mine turned on in my 2010 for free at my dealer


the brains and everything is already on board, it uses a different pulse width for the bulbs to make them dimmer than normal

I like very much your response, is your dealer in North Texas? I may need some backup. Thanks!
