I think all Canadian vehicles have to have them, as for turning them off I guess you could pull the fuse temporarily. Just look in your owner's manual to ind out which one to pull.

Ummm...your on a public forum talking about hunting deer in the headlights or after dark?
My truck is an 03 and I can set the auto headlights (comes on after dark) or i can turn it to manual on/off.

Mine's a 2000 that was brought in from Canada, and the lights are always on. Anybody know how to fix this? Like to be able to run without headlights....

Not sure about the Fords but, my buddy had a Tahoe and figured out that he could barely push the e-brake in (maybe a notch or two- NO MORE) and the driving lights would go off. Like I said, I have no idea if Ford's setup is wired the same but, it's worth a try.
