pull the center consol, adjust the emergency brake cable and make it slightly looser. When you release the e-brake, pull it back up one click. Voila, no running lights.

Not sure how you turn them off legit (short of cutting wires).

Thanks! I have NOT done this myself.


What would be some reasons why people would want to turn this off?

Because it looks stupid and serves no purpose to drive around with ur lights on during the day.
also it will extend the life of those bulbs.
