DRL delete for 92-? e36

my car has a low beam failure, it didnt before, so i went in search of a switch that wouldnt toss the failure code.

instead i found one that didnt trigger low beam failure on obc (except when lights switch was all the way right position) turns out the new switch disabled DRL? not sure how but i love it. i now have to turn on my headlights but dont have DRL on all the time only thing is my parking lights remain on. not sure if it benefits anyone but i liked it.
i noticed a difference in the switch assembly between e36 models so maybe that has something to do with it ? iether way i was happy i didnt have to play with any wiring to accomplish it! figured id share with max. cheers and gl

can't quite follow your post, but if you didn't want the DRL's, all you had to do was to pop-in a USA E36 model high beam relay.

95+. They have the low voltage high beam lights as a DRL. Using the high beam relay.
While 92 - 94 have the headlights as DRL's, but the wiring changes dramatically
through the 2 -3 years.
