Default Automatic headlight problem

Hi on my 97 it came stock with the lights that come on whenever it gets dark or when you put it into gear. My problem is that i dont like that. I know that you can turn the lights off but as soon as in goes into gear i get light. I cant even ride with the fogs on anymore. Is there a switch or a wire i can cut so when i put it into drive or something the lights wont come on unless i turn them on?

Disable Daytime Running Lights
As told by Boseman350:

I went to the pontiac garage today and read their service manual for 10 minutes. I found that there is a resistor next to the horn on the driver'* side fenderwell. It is behind the black pcm tray and adjacent to the horn itself. It is white porcelien and has a electrical connector into it. If you yank the 2 prong wire, you now have no more DRLs.

So far it hasn't turned on any check engine lights. I haven't had the chance to test if it has any other side effects, but I doubt it does.

Good luck! If you have any more ?'* let me know.

I like this resistor method better than cutting the ground wires to the headlights.
I read in a previous tech info.......
