HIDS and DRL Problems

Hey, Im new to the forum and in need of some help!

I tried searching and I think the problem has to do with the DRL. I recently installed a set of hids in my 08 Impala. Their wired to the battery, 2 relays, 2 fuses, and Im using the pass headlight to trigger the coils.

When I start my car in my garage the hids turn on normally, but when i back out into daylight they turn off. If I turn off the car and turn it back on everything is normal (outside). Everything also performs normal if I start the car outside. Ive looked into the DRL harness for $75 but I would like to do that as a last resort if possible. Hopefully somebody can shine some light on the situation. Thanks for your time.

Don't RUN your HIDS in the daytime,you'll kill them quicker.I always turn my off and run my fogs durning the day.

Blackkbox 8K H11 is what I have

hid

I guess I'm not getting what the problem is?? Are u wanting to run your hid's in the daytime?? Can't you just manually overide them using the headlight switch?? The car has a sensor whitch switches the headlights off in the daytime and uses your drl, which if you have hid's is a no-no. Drl dont use enough power, therefore can ruin your hid's. You can manually overide the drl everytime, or just pull the fuse, like i did, and they will never come on. Let me know if this was what the problem was, or maybe I just didn't get it.
