The one towards the motor is the dead center and the back one towards the fender is the farthest left hole. I'm not by my car otherwise i would pull the panel to be sure.

Ok, so I just pull the fuse and insert the jumper wire? After that I'll no longer have DRL'* but I'll still have auto headlights?

Just making sure I got this right.

Pop your fuse access cover off, and then the other plastic cover just pops off under the hood. Pull relay # 30 and look on the bottom of the relay and where you see # 86 and # 87a, run a jumper wire to those to. NOT 30 AND 87 because those don't do anything. Thats it man, I just tested it out. It works great, Auto headlights still work, but the head lights don't flash when using the keyless entry. Just the front side markers and rear lights.

Cool beans!

Which fuse box do I need to mess with? The one under the hood or the one under the seat?

Oh and its a relay, not a fuse! Don't jump the fuse lol as it wouldn't ever be able to blow lol. Its going to most likely bea black relay and it will for sure have 5 prongs on it.

I just had to make sure. I would hate to have mis-read what you said and be playing in the wrong fuse box.

Ok, I pulled the relay. It'* dark. So I lock/unlock the car to check to see if the lights flash. They don't. BUT I also haven't put in a jumper. Both headlights (lowbeams) work fine. Do I need to jump the relay for the high'*?

Yah one of the highs gets it'* ground from that relay, so you don't need to replace it but your right highbeam won't work

When I left out the relay it was my front drivers side high beam that didn't work. But yea my head lights don't flash with the keyless, so I'm good to go!
