if someone has been working on your transmission, then they might have reassembled it incorrectly, or the switch is bad in the transmission. either way, that is the only place that the reverse lights could be trigggered from. take it to a transmission shop would be my suggestion. maybe someone put the tailight sockets in the backup holes

How do you disable DRL or Automatic Headlights in 2000 Olds Intrigue?

I've seen forums that state that you remove the 'DRL' fuse located in the passenger fuse compartment, but there are no fuses labeled 'DRL'. I am well aware that the DRL/ Automatic headlights are a "feature", but it's irritating to neighbors when I start my car at night, and my headlights automatically turn on and shine into their windows. I know that I can turn on the parking lights to shut off the headlights, or push the parking brake in to have it start without the lights automatically coming on, but it would be simpler to just turn the lights on when i want them to turn on. The DRL's are hideous. I have silverstar 3157 bulbs and the car looks much nicer in front without those 2 big orange lights shining.

They should just dim. By turning the headlights on, the engineers assumed it would be dark. Often there's a knob or wheel on the dash where you can adjust the brightness of your gauge lights.

What would cause the fuse for the brake lights to blow every time you put the car in drive?

Check the circuitry to the backup lights. The same fused circuit is probably used for both brake lights and backup lights. As you go past Reverse, the backup light probably is turned on briefly, causing the fuse to blow. It's just a thought, but I'd think it worth checking.
