Disable daytime runnin' lights

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Steve Barker LT, Sep 10, 2005.

  1. Could someone please tell me how to disable the DRL's on my '02 L-200? I
    caretake a campground and would like to be able to drive around it at night
    with only my park lights on. I have three positions on the switch. AUTO,
    PARK, and Regular ON. I don't mind the lights on in the auto position, but
    it would be great if i could kill them altogether in the PARK position. Is
    it possible? I can do the work if someone can explain where to bypass or
    disconnect what.

    It doesnt??? Well here I looked it up...

    Step #

    1. Pop Hood

    2. Look at Left Front (driver side) Engine Compartment. (on the fender I

    3. See Long U shaped Resistor (should be white Ceramic) at the "top of
    the U" shaped resistor pointing towards the bumper there will be a Plug
    with a black wire and a dark blue wire.

    4. Unplug that connector.

    5. Verify DRL's are dissabled and lighting system still works correctly.

    6. Rejoice and sing a happy tune.

    I've noticed that when I pull the emergency brake up one notch, they g
    off, of course, you still get that annoying beeping from the ca
    telling you it's emergency brakes are on, but that switch may b
    "hot-wired" to let you select on or off.

    It has a bolt going through the center of it and it should be close to
    the edge where the Hood shuts. The info comes straight from GM's eSI
    disk. Maybe I was looking at the wrong car at the time... There should
    be a DRL relay in your underhood fuse block. It should say where the DRL
    Relay is on the cover that you remove. I'm not sure if anything else
    will be effected if you pull that.
