I agree, that's the best look we can get on KFs.Got it on the first try. Not sure if I'll leave it that way though, I actually prefer the way it looks with the Parking Lights switch on, i.e., center round headlight off but halo and flat side lights remain on. It's technically illegal to drive in my state with just the parking lights on but this configuration looks similar to many other manufacturers' DRL's so I'm sure the popo wouldn't notice. I'll get stopped for the 25% tinted side windows long before having the parking lights in motion.
Again, for the record, here is an official copy of instruction to disable the DRL function for CX-5 obtained by bigtex from his Mazda dealer:I copied this from somewhere, saved on my computer, but download the PDF in post #1, it has a picture for you.
I start with my lights switch in the off position.
Engaged emergency parking brakes.
Push ignition button twice.
Step on the brake and keep foot on brake the whole time.
Turn light switch to parking lights then back to off 5 times really quick (have to scroll pass auto if you have auto lights).
Then hit the hazards 10 times really quickly (basically on and off 5 times)
Turn light switch to parking lights then back to off 5 times again.
Disengage emergency parking brakes.
Release foot from brake pedal.
Push ignition button once to turn off.
Your DRL should be disabled now. Repeat steps to enable
Although the descriptions are diffetdnt in the last several steps, but they achieve the same purpose.Is this the file:
Yes, this way is the best looking setup on LED accent DRLs. 2016 and 2016.5 CX-5 have this way.I agree, that's the best look we can get on KFs.
Good question. On my 2016 CX-5, since the DRLs dont use low-beam LED headlights, LED DRL halos dim a bit when you turn the light switch to parking light position. Also the amber halogen parking lights / turn signals will be on (although I disabled the amber lights on parking).Don't the DRLs come on with the parking lights when you get in gear [when they're not disabled]?
