Default Daytime Running Lights - Quickest disconnect?

Just looking for the easiest/safest way to disconnect the DRLs.


Sounds like there is a plug somewhere, but I'm not sure where.


-Thanks

Engine bay, passengers side, down by the frame between engine & strut tower, shiny silver box marked "HOT" (one plug, with 2 wires). Unplug, zip-tie so wires not dangling, done.

that may the quickest, but if you are running HIDs not the best way.

drop the glove box, find the green plug marked DRL right in front of you, unplug. re-install glove box.

time 15 minutes, tools screw driver.

Yeah. . .do the one next to the glovebox. That's the actual DRL module. The one in the engine bay is just a resistor pack.

I did the one under the glove box. I didn't have to disassemble anything - I just reached in and disconnected.

Yes. . that's why your HID's come on. Pull the plug by the glovebox and it won't happen again.

Yes it can be done that way if you know exactly where it is and have nimble hands and body. For an old guy like me taking off the glove box is a better option.
