Change brightness of DRL when Xenons are on

On the F20 when the xenons are on at night, the DRL brightness is half.
How can I change the brightness of the DRL's?

And how can I turn on the taillights as DRL's on the F20?

For taillight DRL's, it should be the same as the F30, which in REM code the following:

MAPPING_TAGAHRL_H_L_OUTPUT = sl_l
MAPPING_TAGAHRL_H_R_OUTPUT = sl_r
MAPPING_TAGAHRL_H2_L_OUTPUT = sl_2_l
MAPPING_TAGAHRL_H2_R_OUTPUT = sl_2_r

Thanks, but I think the last two lines have no function, because the F20 doesn't have inner tail lights. I will try it and report back.

But how can I change the strength of the brightness of the DRL's?

I don't know about the DRL Brightness.

To be clear, the DRL's (angle eyes) are more bright when the Xenons are off (I think 100% brightness). I want to have them also that bright when the Xenons are on and not just 50%.

Does somebody know if it's possible and where I can find it?
I can remember the F10 also has a setting to change the brightness of the DRL's...

Yes, it was quite clear, as all LED Halo's work this way. No one has figured this out yet though.

You can try these two FDL Codes, one at a time, and then both together, and see if they work:

FRM => U_EFF_POL = wert_02__100% / Werte=32
FRM => U_EFF_FL = wert_03__100% / Werte=32

Shawn, you the man. I coded FRM => U_EFF_POL = wert_02__100% / Werte=32 and it worked, now the halos are at 100% brightness with the xenons on.

Thanks for testing and confirming. Credit goes to JEG23 though.

He sent me this code a very long time ago, and it has been on my To-Do List to test, but I never got around to it.

And until now, it has been a very long and overdue time since I have been able to bestow on someone the coveted 5 Banana Coding award:

:

...and sing...Day-o, Day-o...

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

If I only enable the width lamp, the DRL is also 100% brightness? Or only when the XENONs are on?

Halos at 100% when xeons are on looks amazing at night!

I turned my taillight DRLs on today. Just had to change the DRL_MODUS value to drl_s

FRM is the Lighting Module in some Fxx cars like F01/F02, F10, F12/F13...

In F20, your Front Lighting is in FEM_BODY and Rear Lighting is in REM.
