The DRL's on that vehicle are the high beam lamps turned on with a pulse width modulated signal to reduce the light output. They are designed to be low output. LED's will not work to replace them as the PWM signal will destroy the LED driver circuits. Also, because that vehicle drives the headlights through the TIPM module any real load increase from higher wattage lights will likely burn the driver circuits in the TIPM module out as well. Just one of the issues with modern vehicles.
