he's right, no need for pics. Just follow link on post 3 for pics. But the description is good, too. Works just like tealdub said it would.

Well, I finally had some time to do this mod, taking out the glove box is the most time consuming part of it, and totally necassary! You guys were right, no pictures are needed apart from the ones already provided for the "diode" and the black module. I cut becuase it was easier, I didn't have a pin out tool and I won't ever want the DRL's back! I am so glad to be rid of those damn drl's... thanks for doing the leg work guys so that other less technical folks, such as myself, could do this mod.

I know this post is old, but were you serious when you asked this question?

Just as you're able to turn a switch to turn on HID lights, a company is able to make the CPU turn on the lights for you.

Yeah, and another bump. I wish it weren't 10 degrees here so I could get out there and try to finger it out myself!

Yet another person with an 07 WRX NON-HID that's trying to disable the DRLs...

I didn't realize that there is an identical thread with more information on disabling DRLs for 07 WRX (non-HID). See this link

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1109279

Hopefully someone who has downloaded the 2007 WRX service manual can post the wiring system diagram for non-HID Impreza models. We need it so we can identify which color wire to disconnect.

My 06 STI had DRLs. Makes me wonder if it's a state thing, or if yours just magically didn't have it to begin with.

Default Disable DRLs on a 2007 impreza outback sport wagon?

I've been following these threads on multiple websites and I'm trying to figure out how to disable the DRLs on my 07 impreza outback sport. Every link I find seems to be for the WRX/STI models with HID headlamps though.

I have looked under the hood and did find the "caution, may get hot" resistor...but am not particularly crazy about unplugging a connector under the hood where it is exposed to the weather

I have looked up under the glove box and I don't see a 10-pin connector going into a square shaped box. None of the pictures on any of these forums look like similar to behind my glove box.

Anyone know where the relay connection is on an 07 impreza?

I downloaded the 2007 service manual from the suby tech site. I've got the headlight wiring diagram here:

http://www.box.net/public/r7e7ikhdil

I just set up that account for sharing files. If you have a better place, feel free to move it...

It looks like B102, but I don't know enough about wiring diagram to know what to do with it. It does look like the resistor (b5) can be disabled too... I will look at it with my mechanic buddy tomorrow...

Oh cool, thanks! It looks like the regular 2007 WRX has a DRL Relay (B102) while the 2007 STI doesn't. I suppose we simply disconnect B102 like you mentioned. I'll try it this weekend.

I could be mistaken but I believe that relay isn't there. Isn't that the relay which is supposed to be in the 02-06 wrx's but missing from the 07's? I understand the wiring diagram is for the 07.. but I'm skeptical. I'll take apart the glove box and see if it's there tomorrow.

That's what I thought too, but I haven't had a chance to check. I unplugged the resistor in the engine bay and electrical taped the crap out of the harness, but I would rather do it inside the cabin if possible.

Ditto. I'm not too comfortable with unplugging the one in the engine bay...

Default DRL's gone

OK, so after looking at the wiring diagram, I have a solution that works, and has not had any ill effects (for the one day it has been off).

B102 is behind the glovebox. It is a Black relay with 5 wires. You can see it at the bottom of the first page in the wiring diagram. The middle wire is a Yellow/Red that connects a path to ground through the resistor under the hood. It is labeled (3) in the wiring diagram. Disconnect this path to ground, and the DRL's won't work. It is effectively the same as unplugging the resistor under the hood, except nothing is open or exposed under the hood.

If you can figure out how to get the connector out of the wiring clip, then that is probably the best way to go. I felt like I was going to break the clip before I got the connector out, so I just cut the wire about two inches from the clip and taped them up. I can always reconnect it later if needed.

Put the glove box back on and try them out...

As always, do this at your own risk, but it worked fine for me...

Nice work. The black clip next to the blue one correct?... Would you mind taking a picture if possible just to confirm the location?

Yeah, Right behind the glove box. The blue is closer to the door, and the black is closer to the center of the car. There are only two relays there. I don't have my camera right now, but if you take the glove box off, it is as plain as day. The middle wire in the Black clip.

A pinout tool or something may be the ticket to getting the wire connector out of the clip, but I had neither the tool or the patience...

Since Garrets77 tried this mod, I felt a little safer trying it out. I figured I'd take some pics to show everyone. The hardest part for me was pulling the glovebox!

Here's the black B102 relay pulled off. I'm not sure if you have to do this to pull out the pin, but I removed the white locking piece by gently disengaging on both sides (the circled area and opposite side).


See the white locking piece out of the connector.


At first, I didn't realize that the whole gold pin came out, so I was trying to push in between the gold contacts. Anyways, I used a toothpick and pressed directly in the center. Anything blunt should be able to push it out.

Pull it through the white locking piece, tape it up, plug the relay back in, and you're done!

Here's the pin out of the connector.


Let me know if you have any questions.
