I'm sure all it is , is a Relay under the hood.
The question is..why?
I like my DRLS

I thought i read in the FSM somewhere..if the relay is removed or the DRLs malfunction it kicks on the headlights....

"2001 Pontiac Bonneville Remove relay #30 in the fuse panel under the hood"

Not sure if that works, but that'* what I just found I assume 2000 on up would be the same, not just 2001.

The jumper needs to be placed between terminals 30 & 87a in the socket. You just disabled your DRL'*. Just one other thing, if you have perimeter lighting, you will lose the DRL function. Hope this helps, any questions just feel free to ask.
