I disabled my DRLs by jumping the relay, but my parking lights still are on while driving.. Is there a way to disable these aswell?? Can i jump another relay for this without affecting the auto turn on headlights?

Your twilight sentinel is on turning on your park lights, or your fogs will turn on your park lamps if their turned on. The dash intergration module controls the park lamp relay so jumping it would turn it ON all the time. removing the relay would kill the park lights but then you would never have them?

As long as your in park, once you put the tranny in gear the Dash Intergration Module will turn them on.
The only sure way to operate with them off is too pull the relay, or wire in a toggle switch to disable the relay?

you can driver with no lights on during the day......if you disabled the DRL'* the parking lights should not be on unless you have your fog lights on, if so turn them off.... they wont come on when you shift into drive.. only when you have the button on.


*edit* you know.... i just might be wrong.....It may be that once you disable the DRL that the Fogs may stay on..... b/c those 2 share the same fuse.....hmmmm Hope someone else chimes in...
