    Took about a thousand tries, but it finally worked! Really did not like them on with the sun out, much better now. Even though there is a setting in the infotainment to dim them, they are still way too bright on the dimmest setting.

    I imagine you all want to know how to remove seatbelts and airbags next.

    Nope. Just the dumb DRL.

    So this works for a 2018 too? Where in the infotainment can you dim them? Did not see that

    You can not do it that way. Have to follow the procedure.

    Because passive and active safety are exactly the same.

    Sorry guys, might be a dumb question, but the fog lights being on permanently would be a different issue right? The diagram in the PDF points to the DRL being a bulb in the main headlight housing, which I currently do not have on. I guess I could go out and try this procedure before asking, however hoping someone might have some insight here. Not seeing anything when I google "fog lights permanently on, 2016 CX-5". Thinking this could be a bad switch, which if this is the case, i'll be pulling the fuse.

    So I was able to disable the DRL after a few hundred tries. If I only want the halos on, it would be on the parking light setting correct? Is there a way to run the halos without the parking lights on ? I was driving the other day and saw another CX-5 in the opposite direction with his halos on and when he passed me, I noticed his parking lights weren't on in the rear.

    Correct. Just parkers

    If you want just halos then you need to buy a halo light conversion from Japan.

    A fellow member did just that. You need to peruse the site to find their posts.
