SOURCE: Daytime running light
I have a very easy and cheap solution for you:
1) Take a piece of black, electrical tape.
2) Cut it to a length of about 1 inch.
3) Cover the photo sensor that is located on the center of the dash, near the windshield.
4) Put your lights into auto-mode.
And that is all...
The auto mode of the headlights works by relying on the photo sensor described above. When the sensor is exposed to light, it opens the circuit, which does not allow current to flow, and the lights are not on. When this sensor is no longer exposed to enough light, the circuit is closed, and current flows, powering the lights.
Pros for this solution:
1) It couldn't be any cheaper.
2) Your lights will always be on while the ignition is on.
3) Your lights will not stay on, since removing the key from the ignition will turn the lights off
Con's for this solution:
1) The headlights will not be the only lights on. This method will cause the rear and side markers to be on as well but this will not hurt anything...
2) If you use only tape, and because of the location of the sensor being so hot when the van is in the sun, the glue of the tape may stick to the sensor and may stain it. (I worked around this by first covering the sensor with a piece of paper cut to size and shape, then covering everything with the tape, which I also cut to size and shape.
Other than that, you are looking at a possibly very expensive customization to add daylight running lights because DRL's are controlled via a switch in the transmission of the vehicle. In other words, the lights come on when you place the car in drive. Not an easy or economic solution...
