Daytime running lights

Post by badolbob on 7/20/2010, 1:48 pm

I have a 2008 V-6 that has daytime running lights, I was wondering if anybody knows how to dissable them. I purchased a pair of Halo Ring Head Lights, and I want the DTRL not to come on when I have my parking lights on. Have seen that you can pull the parking brake up one notch to dissable the DTRL, that does not work. Any help would be greatl.

I have a Canadian friend with standard DRL's on his 09, he says locate the green wire with a black stripe going into the connector which
plugs into the DRL module and cut it, says it wont affect the park lamp light or anything else. Maybe worth a try, someone probably has a better way then this, im sure.

Thank you. I have read that on the internet, but dont think I want to cut any wires. I have heard that your computer has to be reprogramed. Joe Cooper Ford wants $150.00 to do that. I'm hopeing that there is a cheaper way than that.

I would hope so...what about spending a little more on a tuner....does it come with the on/off option? Horsepower AND no lites for a few more bucks maybe?!

Hadn't heard of this before. I'm sure there is a way to turn it off.

I know that there has to be a way to do it. I did try the parking brake trick and it does work, but I dont want to
drive around with my brake on. I do that and I will wear out my pads quicker.
