I was wondering if there's anyway to have the amber DRL on at night with the headlights fully on. I want the Amber's on at night cuz it looks badass. but it seems that they go off once you put it lights on

Not naturally, you'd have to find a way to modify to make them on all the time. I've never seen where anyone has done that

That behavior is programmed into the controlling module (BCM?), and it’s called DRL Dropout I believe. It defaults to Yes/True, but changing that parameter to No/False should induce the behavior you seek.

Changing the parameter’s value becomes the issue, and that’s going to require some sort of 3rd party interface device. I think the Tazer device could do such a thing, and I know my TranZformer Gen2 can, as I have that functionality enabled on my Charger.

However, those devices’ ability to modify such parameters is dependent upon the car’s year model and body model. You didn't mention a year model for your car, but if it’s 2018 or newer, the ZAutomotive products won’t work for this.

So if yours is indeed a 2018+ year model, you are SOL for this...for now. Keep checking their website for applicability to be added to their Tazer devices. Once it is, you would be good to go most likely.

I have a 2019 challenger GT AWD and I have a tazer installed to put it in RWD. I'll mess around with the tazer settings and see if I can figure it out.

If anything can do it that Tazer should be able to. Check the documentation for DRL Dropout options, that should be where it’s at.
