How can I activate Daylight running lights all the time as per Canadian Law in my 98 Camry, I know it could work if you turn on the headlight switch all the time, But the requirement is not to have any control on your car lights.
I would appreciate any help.
Thanks

They were standard on most gen4 cars and optional on the others. My guess is that the wiring harnesses are the same, but there is a missing jumper somewhere. I don't know where it is, but you will probably find it in an open spot in one of the fuse boxes.
If you can't find it, there are kits available to make the mod.

I have a '98 Camry (bought in California), and I definitely don't have DRL.

check and c if ur camry has a silvery box w/ yellow sticker on it, it should be located behind the passenger's firewall........

**the silve box should be located in the red circle in the attach pic

If u dun have it, then u cant activate the DRL, n u have to add ur own,

Here's what the box LWF is talking about looks like. (copy and paste URL in new window)

Otherwise, you'll have to rig up the lights DIY or get a DRL kit.

There are different ones out there, but it looks similar to the box used to hook up trailer lights. Most just allow the low beams to run at about 50% when the car is started. (day time running lights) The OEM uses 4 relays, which makes harder to add on after the fact.
