There is no way to disable the DTrs while driving, they are a safety issue. To turn off the DTRs, push down slightly on the parking brake pedal and the lights will go out.
push your parking brake one click and it will turn them out
You have to go to the Ford Dealer, and have them turn it off in the computer.
On a 2008, fuse 13 (10 amp) located inside the fuse box in the engine bay controls your DRL. Removing it should disable your lights.
No Relay, Just A fuse located on the drivers side dash when you open the door. It is under DLR (Day time running lights) silver finned box under dash, right side of sterring column
Day time running lights are for saftey. They are design for notifying on comming traffic
Day time running lights?
I am not familiar with the Tahoe but when both headlights go out on any car at the same time it is not usually not that both bulbs burned out at the same time. Usually something happened to the electricity. First you check for a fuse. Information about the fuse box will be in the owner's manual. Next, you check the switch to see if it has electricity coming out of it. If you have electricity leading from the light switch to the running lights, then you check to see if you have electricity going into the running lights. If you do, you have burned out bulbs or a bad socket. Otherwise, you have a bad wire.
in the parking lights
make sure that the parking brake pedal is all the way up, it is a feture that if this is pushed in that the lights will stay off. hope this helps
do 1998 ford f450 have day time running lights
vehicles equipped with day time running lights are designed to have the running lights on when the vehicle is running in gear.the only time you can change that is by turning on the headlights, or turning off the ignition. some running lights go out when the transmission is put into park. ( the only way to change that is by manually disabling the lights, like cutting wires, or breaking bulbs)
They are day time running lights. You can turn them of by pulling out the day time running light fuse. Saab manual will help you locate the fuse.
there isn't a relay for the daytime running lights, it uses the headlight relay, if you want to disable them, theres a fuse you can remove in the fuse box, i did it to mine, but i don't remember how the fuse is marked, its just for the lights, nothing else, possibly DL or DLR
This is something that if you want done permanently, needs to be done by a dealer, as they would have to disable this feature on the car. in Canada, it is illegal to drive without DTL (day time running lights) on the car. If you are wondering how to do this while sitting still, before starting the car, put the emergency break on, then start the car, and the DTL lights will not come on, once you release the emergency break, the lights will turn back on, making it impossible to drive with out the DTL lights running. Hope this answers your question!
The daytime running lights work of the high beam, check those first.
they are not standard on every vehicle.
usually you can remove the relay ,or the fuse Be advised that as day time running lamps are classified as safety equipment disabling them MAY BE A CITEABLE OFFENSE in your state as they are factory original equipment.
usually due to a defective daytime running light module failure..
I would check the running lights for one with a short. I had the same sort of thing with my trailer and I spent way to much time troubleshooting the brake and signal wires. Turns out a running light bulb connector was grounding out on the trailer and messing it all up.
Here is the real deal. You do need the euroswitch however this breaks it down for you. Its a little confusing and tech heavy for some. However everything is nicely labelled in VWs.http://gti-vr6.net/library/electrical/disabling_DRL_on_98.HTML(The old answer below)i am not a mechanic but i have played one on t.v. in all seriousness, the only way i know how to disable the pesky day time running lights is a euro fog switch. kind of hard to find and pretty expensive too. the euro-switch has two fog light functions and will disable those lights. how? i don't know..... what i do know is you can find the switch on eBay from time to time for around 60.00 bucks. the dealer charges in excess of 200 bucks if they have it. try the british eBay as well. good luck
If it is still on when your car is off it may be a sensor to your brake lights that may need looked at. If it is on when your car is running it may just be something to do with day time running lights.

I have a 1999 chevy Silverado how to fix my day time running lights
dear poster. You grand prix is equipped with Auto function lights. if this is so, then you should never have to turn on the lights manually. the lights usually turn on all the time.
If the night running lights have failed the bulbs should be checked. Find the bulb housings and remove the parts. After the bulbs are replaced check the lights.
Check your fuses for these lights. If there is not one blown, you may have to check for a short in a wire.
