The problem with DRL is they run at half the power because they are also your high beams. I don't believe it's recommended to run LED's as highbeams as the output isn't as good and the visibility isn't great.

Right on. If you want the LED look, just get an HID kit. With the right components, they will still properly function as your DRL's.

Correct me if I'm wrong but HID's cannot be ran as well either. They require full power, and with DRL's are ran. They run at half the power therefore not powering your HID kit and throwing the DRL code.

The only way to properly do it is to have a kit that does dual HID and run DRL halogens. At least that's how I remember it.

You'll need to run a load resistor to trick the car into thinking you have halogens when you use LEDs in these applications.
Maybe you bought Canbus LEDs, which is for a different application.
