Default Day time running lights

The day time running lights on my 2003 SSEi are a pain in the butt, I just do not like them on, is there any way I can disconnect them or pull out a fuse so they do not go on without hurting something else, thanks

Not sure if it is the same for 2000+ but there is an article in techinfo for 96-99'*

Might be a start :P http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=18

Is there a fuse in the car that you can pull before looking under the hood?

On the passenger side fender well there is a relay box that contains the DRL relay. Remove the relay and install a 16 gauge jumper wire from the #30 terminal to the 87a terminal. This is for the highbeams, GM also used this relay to provide a ground for them. Once this is done nothing else is going to be affected!

Have a 2000 SSEI, found the DRL relay on spot #30, but didn't find #87a, my numbers only go to #53. Any ideas?

Default BYE-BYE DRL

The relay for the DRL, once removed has #'* under it next to each terminal. They are very small but you should be able to see them. Look for the two #'* I gave you and connect a jumper wire across them. If you don't get the correct terminals only one highbeam will come on when you flash them or turn them on. You only need to look at that one relay to do this. No other relays needs to be touched. Let me know how you do,I should be able to send you a copy of a wire diagram if you need. Goodluck! P.*. G.M. should spend less time worring about DRL and more time creating an aftermarket performance division for these cars!!!!!!!!!!

on a related note, I like how the low-beams stay on when you flip on the high beams.. I wish my car was like that. :(

Worked out great - no more DRL, thanks
I'm waiting for the day where someone sues over DRL cause they are blinding as heck especially those darn Saturns. A car does not need DRL it will be seen-a Motorcycle does need lights.
