They are DRL'*, but they just seem really stubborn because I can not shut them off when I am driving which sucks sometimes.
So what gear is the car in when you start it? Mine is normally in park.

By the way, my 98 SE has the center sensor as well, and no ECC.

The fact the sensor is there is what kinda gave me hope of converting to ECC, but I never looked to see if any of the other parts were there, or if the "sensor dome" was even connected to anything. Worse comes to worse, I'll just paint it up to look like a littl R2 unit...

if you set the parking break when the car is off and then start the car the lights should remain OFF

Driver'* side is the photocell for twilight sentinel. The dome may come on a non-ecc equipped car just to fill the hole. I can check my factory schematics when I get home to see if the radiation sensor actually works with the manual control head.
