Typically one cannot disable a drl on the 2003 Honda Accord because it is a required safety feature. To disable the drl you would have to take it to any Honda service center and have them disable the drl for you. They would have to disconnect the required attachments to successfully disable the drl without compromising the rest of the mechanisms.

It is supposed to tell you there is a problem w/the DRL circuit. It does turn off when you have the headlights on (but not the parking lights). I don't find that the warning light is overly annoying (though that is subjective), especially since it turns off when the headlights are on. 1997 and later Honda/Acura. To disable the highbeam DRL for all Hondas/Acuras 1997 model year or later, just look for the DRL fuse in the fuse box under the dash. It should be a 7.5A fuse. There is another one that is 10A, but it doesn't need to be removed. This worked for both a 1997 Honda CRV Canadian version and 2004 Acura RSX.
