Daytime Running Lights W140

Hello all... hopefully someone will know the answer to this.
On a number of American cars I have owned, the addition of DRLs is as easy as removing a shorting "plug" and plugging in the DRL module used on cars meant for Canadian use. No fuss; easy. I suspect the manufacturers save money by having a single harness instead of two.
My S500 does not have DRLs, but I see in the wiring diagrams that on Canadian versions, there is a DRL module located in the console/dash area.
Can I just buy the correct DRL module and plug it in, or are the harnesses different?? Anybody know?
Thanks in advance.

1994 w140 S320 ALARM problem help! locks only driver side door.

I have this problem with my 94 S320

Remote control only locks the front driver side door, same thing when I do it with the key, then when I open it and try to start the car the alaram enables, cant start the car.

Only solution is to disconnect the battery for two minutes or so.

When I'm inside and I lock the car with the buttom on the door and then unlock it there is no problem. Seems like there is a problem with the pump under the rear seats. it works but doesnt give signal to the front right side door and rear doors. Please help, any suggestions. I did check all the fuses, they seem OK.

Umm, what does this have to do with DRLs? You might want to post this as a new thread if you want to get any answers!
