Question Headlights on with wipers?

Hi:

In NY, it is legally required to have headlights on with wipers (I also think it is a very good idea).

Is there a way to code the F23 to do this automatically? I have both bimmercode and e-sys.

Thanks!

Dave

Your fine with the DRL and you can code the brightness of the Angel Eyes. I have mine set to 100% for DRL and headlights. I also coded my front fog lights to stay on in DRL mode.
you can also code rear fog lights as well

actually, per the DMV:
Code:
New York State law requires you to turn on your headlights when the weather
conditions require the use of windshield wipers to clear rain, snow, sleet
or fog. "Daytime lights" do not qualify as headlights.
(from https://dmv.ny.gov/about-dmv/chapter-10-special-driving-conditions)

So still looking to see if it is possible to do specifically what I asked - turn on the headlight system automatically when wipers are active.
