Oh and one more thing: when all your lights come on when you unlock your car, that is DRL (daytime running lights) mine don't do that. My interior lights come one and that's it, so that's another thing I don't agree with haha

3rd thing haha: my halos/LEDs light up only with my bumper lights with one turn of the light control switch. They aren't on the wire of the head lamps. That's the wrong way that they weren't designed for.
I would have to see what your friend did differently or what could possibly be different to make single circuit halos and LED's operate from two different circuits. Something is amiss or information is left out of the equation that could possibly make single circuit halos and LED's operate from two separate circuits. Does he have a factory anti theft system or aftermarket? Anything aftermarket may have different control unit logic for the circuits. Mustang factory circuits are controlled by the SBJ (Smart Junction Box).
When the lights come on when the doors are unlocked that is NOT DRLs operating...
My 08 Mustang Pony Premium does not have DRL's (which means Daytime Running Lamps). Daytime running lamps are standard equipment only on Canadian spec Mustangs and optional on fleet only USA vehicles. They only illuminate when the ignition is turned on and the vehicle is in the daylight with the headlamp switch turned to the off position. No other lights operate with the pair of DRL's.
I have the factory lock/unlock remote and optional factory installed anti-theft security system. During an unlock the factory system illuminates the headlamps, parking lamps, taillamps all side marker lamps, dash lights and dome lights on a time delay. If your car only illuminates the interior lights during unlock then you need to program
your Mustang to operate the headlamps/parking lamps on during unlock using the instructions as outlined in the owners manual. Yes that is a controllable function!
This statement makes no sense:
That's the wrong way that they weren't designed for.
Your halos and LED's are wired and functioning correctly using the dim parking lamp circuit of the bumper lamps. One turn of the headlamp switch operates them along with the dim circuit of the parking lamps as they should. One final turn of the light switch to illuminate the headlamps makes no difference because parking lamps always remain lit if the headlamps are on.
No matter what, the front parking lamps and turn signals are on separate circuits designed to operate a dual filament bulb and there is no way with the factory remote lock system to make the LED's and Halos flash with the lock function since the flashing is on the same circuit as the turn signal lamps. You have your halos and LED's on the parking lamp circuit.
