Clearance lights

If it's about Power Wagons, all generations, this is where it'll go. This is the original PWR Forum Power Wagon Technical Discussion Section. And this includes everything that doesn’t fit in any one of the other categories related to the truck goes here!

Clearance lights

Anybody know if there is an easy way to get the rooftop clearance lights to stay on all the time without turning headlights on?

Maybe it is just me because I use Tapatalk but could folks post the year of the vehicles they are talking about. Likely based on the year the solution will be different.

My thought is that if you want them with the DRL you likely are going to have to jumper into where the DRL is but would need to look at the wiring diagram for the model year to determine that.

For older PW’s without DRL likely it is a matter of just rerouting the power wire to an accessory switched line. I know my 2005 PW will have the clearance lights on with just the parking lights on and I drive all the time with Parking or Headlights.

Here is the wiring diagram. They are tied to the parking lights which is normal. If you have DRLs you could always try to run a piggyback pin from the Body Control Module

I don't believe the clearance lights are part of the monitored lights on lights out so you may be able to repin just fine.

I know the tazer ram allowed me to choose if the drl’s are on or off, and what lights would be used if it is on. But i cant remember if the clearance lights were one of the choices or not.

Based on the wiring diagram it doesn't look like they would be part of that circuit but would need to see the pin out on the BCM

AlfaOBD can activate DRL's.
