I thought with the 2000'* you can ride witht he DRLs of. I thought you could at night anyway. Like at night you can ride with the headlights off and the foglights on. My friend told me how but i forgot

I should just go look in the fuse box to avoid this question, but it'* raining so I'll ask.
What'* the (a) in 87a? Was in there recently but didn't notice any letters, just what # fuse does what.
How long have you had them disconnected for?
30 & 87a are terminal designations on the underside of the DRL relay itself. They correspond to the termminals in the relay socket. The jumper must be inserted in the relay socket between terminals 30 & 87a. Again, there are no fuses involved in this operation. I do not have my DRL'* disconnected.

Steve, the DRL'* can't be on at night because at night they automaticly shift to the NRL'* (Night Time Running Lights) if you know what I mean. j/k
On a serious note, the Twilight Sentinel turns the headlights on automaticly when daylight conditions are no longer set, this in turn cancels DRL operation. On the 2000'* if you select "parking lights" on the manual stalk, the low beams will go out then parking lights & fogs will remain on.

Just curious Mark why you don't have them disconnected? Did you try it out and didn't like it for some reason?

Steve, at night you can ride with just parking lights on if you want, but not during the day, the DRL'* will still be on no matter what That'* why I'm looking into disconnecting them.

Taylor, It doesn't matter to me that I have DRL. I would just assume leave DRL operate as normal. I've tried this procedure just to verify it, and it does work, that'* a fact. The most difficult part is making the jumper with stabs to fit in the relay socket between terminals 30 & 87a. The whole job takes about 5 minutes once you fab the jumper. If & when you do this mod, as a final check after the jumper is in, make sure that both high beams are operational. And yeah check that DRL'* no longer function when "Park" not selected.

Steve, boseman350 posted the procedure for 96-99 DRL disable in techinfo which is not applicable to the 2000+ Bonnevilles.

I've done it, 98 SLE. Check the drivers side, its tucked under the fender a bit, you might need to finagle your PCM out of the way.
Theres a big white thing that has two black wires going to it, snip them.
