Default disable the DRL's? Can you pull a fuse?

I dont want my DRL's to be on in the middle of the day...looks retarded.

I can control my parking lights but the only way I know of to turn off the drl's is to pull up the e-brake one knotch when Im driving. Is there a fuse to pull to disable them? If so, which one?

Thanks,
Michael

You can disconnect the DRL module located between the glove box and passenger side door. You need to remove the glove box in order to gain access to the unit.

Removing the glove box probably gives you much better access to the connector, but if you know which module you want to unplug you can also do it by reaching up under the dash, as the module is accessible from below. Depends on the size of your hands, I suppose, but I was able to do this without much difficulty.

The module on the strut tower is a dropping resistor and not the actual DRL control module. If your lights are stock and you don't plan on modifying them, then disconnecting the resistor is sufficient. However if you plan on installing HIDs you must disconnect the main module by the glovebox. If you're replacing your headlights with Morettes, STi lights etc. it's best to do this as well. There really isn't much extra effort required to unplug the main module, and once this is done the DRLs are totally disabled.
