If you put HID for your high beams that's where the DTRL are at the light won't turn on because the blast will not be getting enough power to enable the DTRL. I had HID for high beams and the DTRL never worked because not sufficient power to the blast to power the HID. Hope this helps if not I would say connect your HID and you'll see what I'm talking about..

Good Luck Dude

Theres a DIY on how to properly disable the DTRL. Its somewhere in this section of the forum too. Just search. Its behind the glove box and its a yellow connector. You disconnect that and should be good to go from what I understand.

Here's two links first one is to a '13

Here's one to 06?

Don't have 08 but one of these will work for you.
