Q: DRL resistor question. on 2006 Pontiac G6

I would like for full power to run to my headlights when the DRLs are activated (normally a resistor or something similar I believe cuts the power in half roughly, and I want to have full power getting through, as if I had the exterior light control switch to ON). Is there a way to do this?

is gonna take a lot of work re-wiring the system and using a switch to turn then off and on a separate switch anything is possible but is gonna take some work
Well, I'm no stranger to running wires and switches, I was just hoping there was a simpler way that would allow me to keep the stock maybe just removing a resistor or something like that.
I'm sure you've already found your answer, so this answer is for anybody who reads this in the future. I have recently installed HID Headlights in my girlfriend's G6 and needed full power put out to them. The solution is rather simple. You can simply pull out the DRL Relay and you will have full power without it affecting your headlights too much. The only difference is that your headlights will NOT be on during the day (when it's bright). But as soon as it gets dark, they'll switch back on automatically.
