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.

Is sensor for daytime running lights a problem in 2000 Ford Explorer?

I own a 2000 Ford Explorer. It does not have daytime running lights.However, if you bought the Explorer in Canada, by law all new vehicles made or imported after January 1, 1990 are required to have DRLs. Some were equipped with them in 1975.Too bad the mentality in the US is to equip cars with countless useless accessories, and ignore this simple and effective safety measure.

On a 2000 Chevy Silverado why would the head lights pop on after taking the parking brake off or when it gets dark the dash board lights go out?

The lights are automatic for your daytime running lights AND your regular head lights. There is a light sensor on your dash that knows when it get dark. When it's dark your headlights will automatically come on, daytime lights turn off and your dashboard lights will dim as a result, since you no longer need them to be that bright when it's dark. As far as the parking brake, it triggers your daytime lights to turn off, so when you disengage your parking brake, they will turn on for normal driving. All of this is a good thing because you never have to worry about turning your on/off...ever.
