I had the Drivebright DRLs installed and they are fantastic except when the engine is running and you put on the hazards or turn signals, then they flash erratically and even switch from orange (default for turns) to white.

I've read several reports about these units having issues but those were over a year ago and I thought for sure they might have it figured out by now since they are still offering them for sale on their website.

I reached out to Drivebright and was told

"We have run into this same problem a couple of times recently. We believe we have an issue with a shipment of DRL controllers. We are working to fix the issue and to get new controllers back in stock and to customers having this issue. Please give us some time to work through this. We will send you a new controller box as soon as the fix has been made. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Is this just the canned response? The issue has been reported at least a year ago on the forums.

My ultimate question is do I just disconnect the turn signals and enjoy the fantastic DRLs or is it worth taking Drivebright at their word and replacing the controller once they eventually send it out?

Thanks

They'll replace it. As far as anything being done to fix the actual issue, I'm starting to doubt it as this has been the same response for years. If they can't, or won't fix the failure point, they should put a connector on the module so you don't need to rewire it every time the module takes a crap.
