Default 2002 SSEi DRL'* please go away

Does anybody know how to turn off the DRL'* on a 2002 SSEi without affecting anything else. I already removed the fuse but now my drivers side bright light won't come on?

Good deal! I have seen some people questioning if it was in the air box to keep it from being subjected to weather and some saying it was to keep it cool so I was unsure. This is a great web site, very usefull already!

That is the wrong procedure, sorry. That procedure is for 96-99 cars. You'll have to go into the engine compartment fuse block, remove the DRL relay, then insert a jumper in the relay socket between terminals 30 & 87a I'm pretty sure. Look in TechInfo for the 2000+ prcedure for disabling DRL. You will lose the DRL (hi beams come on at low brilliance) with the perimeter lighting feature at night.

Remove the DRL relay (30) in the Underhood Fuse Block. Fabricate a jumper (at least #16 AWG) to jumper across terminals 30 & 87a in the socket that was vacated by the DRL relay. This will prevent DRL'* from coming on. It will also disable the DRL function of the Perimeter lighting feature. I thought this was in the TECHINFO, but did not see it. This procedure applies to the 2000+ Bonnevilles. It should not affect the fog lights.
