Yeah, I was curious as to why also. But for those that wish to disable DRL, I respect that. The Techinfo procedure for disabling DRL is pretty straight up.

I find them to be more of a nuisance than a safety aid. I also think it diminishes the visibility of motor cycles, which should be the ones with the headlights on. People also forget to turn on their regular headlights at dusk (I'm not talking about Bonnevilles per say, as its automatic on our cars).

I also hate the fact that GM thinks they know what is best for me. At least on my other cars I can have DRLs turned off via a scan tool.

For more info on DRLs, check out the Nat'l Motorists Association.

Pop your hood. Remove the two wing nuts and remove the cover on the right hand side of the engine that was held in by the two wing nuts.

From there you need to look for two white cubes. These are the DRL resistors. They are about an inch long and half an inch wide. (Careful, these can be warm/hot if you just ran your car!). Follow these white cubes, at the end will be a wiring harness. Disconnect the plug from the wiring harness. Done! (Obviously, do this with the car and headlights off).

You'll have to dig around a little bit, but they are there.

That'* too bad, you found those two little white blocks and unplugged the wiring harness? It worked perfectly on my '96.

Wait a minute, I thought you bought the DRL switch from ZZperformance? Or did I mis-read something in this thread?
