Re: How to disable drl's?

Just want you all to know that I just unpluged the connector for the DRL's all by my little self as a woman. I did unbolt it from the wall first, that made it very simple and no more annoying DRL in someone's face It was a tight fit, but I used a small rachet and it worked!! Thanks for the info, as it has bothered me for a year now. Why have them always on??? We never needed them back in the day!

Re: How to disable drl's?

ok, mine is a 2007 with hid kit, i unplugged the connector bhind the headlight and nothing, i cut and switched the small blue wire on the drl's relay bos and nothing. i do turn them off when turning off applying brake and turning on, but as sson as i release brake they turn back on. HELP,, dont wanna have to be replacing ballast or hid bulbs more than normal. by the way, these hid kits that i bought are BRIGHT! i have to turn on the hi beams because they are actually dimmer than the hid's. im wondering if thats the problem>>>

Not sure if it was mentioned or not but right next to your drivers headlight (Standing in front of your rig) below the turn signal is a little panel. You will see where the panel has a gap. Take a flat head screwdriver, cover the tip with electrical tape or a rag, stick it in the gap and slightly pry the right end of the panel up (the small panel against the headlight). It will pop up. Remove it by sliding it to the right, away from the headlight. The plug will be right there in front of you.


Thanks for the tip! I couldn't squeeze my hand down there to disconnect it from the top. Took me 30 seconds following your method

Yep, and the best thing for me was that now I can see my radio in daylight as evidently it dims it along with the headlights.

I found a relatively easy way to disconnect my DLR resistor that rests beside the drivers side headlight on my 2013.
I took a putty knife (I guess you could use something similar), inserted it between the bumper and filler piece standing in front of the truck, depressed (if I remember) the clip with the putty knife & with my other hand, released/unplugged the connector from the resistor.
BINGO! DRL disabled.
I can run my parking lights and mirror lights without having those dim DRL on!


!!!!! So very easy to do once I figured out a putty knife would slide right into that space!!!!!

Takes less than 5 minutes to do!

Best Regards,
Saker
