Default HOW TO: Disable Daytime Running Lights on '06

Sup guys?

I Just Disabled Mine 2 Min Ago. I Have An 06 Wrx, Hooked Up Some Aftermarket Hids And When I Turned The Car On, The Hids Were Flashing Like Strobe Lights BUT WERE FINE ONCE I TURNED THE HEADLIGHTS ON. SO I FOUND THE MODULE ON THE 06 AND UNPLUGGED IT AND NOW EVERYTHING IS MAGNIFICENT. NO MORE DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS AND NO MORE STROBES!

Now, you DO NOT need to remove the glove box to unplug the DRL Module. Simply tuck under the glove box after with your head and look UP, TO THE RIGHT, and BACKWARD (towards where your passengers knees would be), you will see a 10 pin harness (YELLOW) in color, push the tab on the harness and pull DOWN TOWARD THE FLOOR. KISS THOSE DAMN DRLs GOODBYE!!!!!!

OBSERVE.

Help me out here, curiousity gets the best of me.

Is there a specific reason that you need to disable DRLs?

If you're running aftermarket HIDs, it's recommended that you disable the DRL to prolong the HID bulbs' life and to keep them from flickering.

Because drls suck. They are for saturns and camrys, not performance cars. The ever popular double light flash when passing cannot be used with drls, and my subie does a lot of passing. Besides, aesthetically it looks a lot better in the daytime with the lights off. And if you are worried about safety you can always turn on your running lights with the switch on the steering column. They don't look as gay.

Two questions: why can't you do the "passing double-flash" with DRL's? And how often do you do the double-flash? I see drivers do it on tv a lot and think it's pretty cool but I'm always afraid the people I'm passing will think I'm being a d!ck. Have you ever had anybody go when you double-flash & pass them?

People always get pissed with the double flash and flash me back, but it doesn't matter, because they're not in my rear view for more than a minute anyway. Besides, the left lane is a passing lane, not a driving lane, so they just need to piss off!

I rarely use the double flash..... but it does indeed work. Unplugging DRL module will not disable high beam flashes. Its a seperate bulb anyways.

Either take off the glovebox and use any one of the pictures posted in this thread as reference as to what plug to disconnect, or snake your hand up to the side of the glovebox and unplug it that way.
