Default Daytime Running Lights

Can someone tell me how to disable the Daytime Running Lights? Simply pulling the fuse kills the headlights, so that doesn't work. I am thinking that maybe there is a relay, or something, at the emergency brake lever that could be jumped.

What vehicle? On An Aerio its located behind the glove compartment, youll have to open it all the way and unbuckle it so you can get behind it. Basiclly youll have to unplug a harness and then run a jumper so youll be able to tell that your E-brake is on or not.

Ill try and find you a link

Hate em! Got me pulled over bout 3 times(always the worst times too), after that I said screw it and learned to do what necisarry to avoid that again.

BTW lots of useful Aerio info on that guys site! Check it out...even if you like your DRLs.

Well its like this, the Aerio comes with a digital dash, always lit. And well at night, you get in, start up and then the DRLs would come on...you look at the dash and all thats digital, like I said is lit...so DRIVE ON! Until...[&:][:@] and then it hits ya! You dont have your friggin lights on...and the reason they notice is cause the tails arent lit like the headlights!

The only way to tell that the headlights arent on, is to look at the temperature controls on the A/C, when the headlights are on its lit up, but even then its not much difference enught to really notice.

And as I said...this always happens at the wrong time![sm=badidea.gif]

For how long? I mean really, how long do you plan to do that? This is a very simple mod...remove a harness and jump a wire from one wire to another.
