You did a thorough job of going through the thread. There is a lot going on here!Just wanted to say thanks for all the posts on this subject. I have Oracle Halo's coming and your hard work and input is awesome and helpful (I think I've read all the posts on this subject, so forgive me if I missed something). 2 things for me (JLUR non LED pkg), my DRL's go out while the turn signals are engaged, I'm guessing the Halos's would follow suit if tied into those?
So just to go thru the stock lights and swt settings so we are all clear; When the light swt is set to off "O", engine running and the ebrake is released, the DRL's come on (reminder this is on my '18 JLUR and sounds like its different on other models), When swt is turned to the first (next) position the marker and parking/running lights (the lower powered "dim" whatever you want to call those lights) and DRL's are actually both on. It's hard to tell, but if you do this at night and parked against something very close, you can see it change. In the next position (manual headlight position), headlights come on and the DRL's don't dim, they drop out and the marker and parking/running lights stay on even when blinker is turned on. Auto position would emulate manual headlight position when dark enough. I read there are 3? wires to DRL/running lights on the fender, so there must be 2 circuits and 2 elements in the bulb assuming it's one bulb, much like old school 1157 tail/brake/turn signal light bulb. DRL's are the brighter element and the parking/running light the dimmer element. Also pushing in on the center of the swt turns the fog lights on in any position except for off "O". The fog lights turn off when you turn the high beams on, back on when back to low beam (sheew, I think I got that all right!?).
I actually would like to figure out how to keep the Halo's on all the time, whenever vehicle is moving day or night (regardless of swt position), but don't really want to tie into aux swts and do it manually each time. I'm not sure if any of the programmers overcome any of this? I thought I read somewhere that the DRL's can be programmed to always be on regardless of headlight or blinker?? I guess you could always tie into the marker or parking/running lights and just turn swt to first click. I'm not sure what those halo's draw for power.
As someone mentioned, this may all seem a bit silly, I like to be different (my nickname has been "freakshow" for 20+ years) and I'm impatient. I bought my JLUR off the lot. The only thing it was missing (that I had on my list), was the LED and the Aux swt options. I've already added the S-TECH lighting control so that's done. I like to tinker and figure things out anyway.. so for me, this is fun (I know.. I'm a little sick that way!). If I come up with anything, I will comment and of course follow any ideas here as well. Again I'm sorry if I've duplicated anything here that was already said. It can be a bit overwhelming to search and read it all.
