    daytime running lamps are generally the highbeams with less current applied to the circuit.. check out to see if when you turn the headlamps on, try the highbeams, i bet they dont work, and if they dont, you'll need a multifunction switch..

    yes thats the name of it, its what controls the blinkers, wipers, high beams, flash to pass, and cruise control on these things.. possibly the flashers as well..
    it will probably be a little pricey, say oh around 180$??
