Custom coding, or coding changes.

Does anyone know if it's possible to alter the factory Star coding?

Call it a quirk, but there's a really annoying flaw (IMHO) in the software on vehicles imported into Canada.

In order to comply with DTRL requirements they reprogrammed the system to run the headlamps full-time, then turn on the full lighting package when the light sensor calls for it.

The problem is, despite the fact the full lighting package is on in the dark, you have to manually turn the switch to the "on" position in order to be able to use the high beams.

How dumb is that?
