    Is there an easy way to have the parking lights and the turn signals on for DRLs? Currently my amber turn signals are always on when the headlights are not on and are used as DRLs (I guess), but I'd like for both to be on when the headlights are off.

    To preemptively answer the "why" question: purely for aesthetics. I think it might look cool.

    Searched but couldn't find anything - sorry if I missed it.

    So you want your side markers to come on when your turn signals (DRL) are on as well?

    Because if your headlights are off, and your DRL's are on, you can then just switch the headlight switch one click to turn on the side markers as well. This will also turn on the tail lights though.

    How much effort you willing to expend? I think you can do this safely with a few relays (and cut / splice the OE wiring).
