How do you turn off the daytime running lights on a 2000 Ford Taurus?
You cannot. They are built into the SJB (smart junction box) in
the driver kickpanel. They are not separately fused and do not have
a dedicated relay. I drive my 2006 Taurus with the parking brake
clicked just enough to disable them. The chime alerts me to the
brake application when the car is moving but DOES stop after a few
minutes. My Ford dealer said "we cannot delete your DRL's because
they are a safety feature". I argued that GM vehicles have on/off
DRL switches and not all cars have DRL's because there are NO
mandates. I told Ford that if I saw the DRL's when I bought my car
- that alone would have been a deal-breaker.
