I own a 1998 tracker and the guy at the dealership showed us to pull the emergency brake up just a notch or two from the release position and they will go off and supposedly it's not wearing on your brakes. Try it and see. I always drive with my lights on anyway.

You don't want to pull up on the ebrake,i own a 2003 and on the dash rihgt side this is little disc shape cover pry it up and disconnect the sensor that's for automatic lights. under the dash there is a plug near the console . Go to Google and do a search "how to disable DRl lights" That's where i found it

Solution:

I did the E-Brake trick and it worked, until I did my rear brakes. Even the one notch ended up to be too tight and would drag. I deliver newspapers and drive on the wrong side of the road so turning off the lights is absolutely necessary to avoid confusing drunk, sleepy, or elderly drivers. Without turning off my headlights, they try to go to my left, and almost drive into the ditch.

Here is what I have done: Remove the daylight sensor from on top of the dash, on the passenger side. It just pops out and disconnect the sensor from the cable. Next, disassemble the center console. There are just a few screws, and it lifts up and off the shifter. Remove the power connector for the Aux jack. Now I took a jumper wire with alligator jacks on both ends, and grounded the emergency brake sensor. This tricks the computer into thinking you've pulled the lever. Just route the jumper wire to avoid interference with anything, and use micro zip-ties to hold it in place if necessary. I personally used a very heavy gauge solid strand jumper wire, which was very short. I just bent it into shape and it hasn't moved. Now reassemble your console. Your BRAKE light will stay on, but there are no other ill effects. I have also passed NYS inspection without having to disconnect the jumper wire, so you should be good there, also.

On a 1998, you can kill the running lights by pulling the the 15 daylight running light fuse in the engine comparement fuse box. Manual says to disconnect the battery before openning this comparment.

You should be able to pull the fuse for the daytime running lights to disable them. Probably located in the fuse panel under the hood. There should be a picture on the inside of the lid which tells you which fuse is which.

Not sure on the disconnect part, but after you start the truck, push your dome light on and off 4 times, you will hear it chime, the daytime running lights will then be out. But you gotta do it each time you start the vehicle....

Taillights and daytime running lights not working may be caused by a blown fuse. The fuse can be found in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
