My truck has day time running lights how can i buy pass these or maybe run fogs on the circuit instead of head lights. I realy dont have a problem with the lights other than unessasary current draw if having starting problems. I would like to put them on a switch or just delete all together.:dunno:

Thanks

Im just thinking our loud here but,

there must be remote wire in the ignition switch somewhere that turns on the DRL. If you could find this wire you should be able to disable them

IIRC there is a relay box behind the glovebox for the DRL. Somewhere by the driver's side battery is a resistor block. You could probably just disconnect the resistor block and be done with it.

All you have to do is pull the DRL fuse out the fuse box under the hood, if you dont have the book let me know i will give you the number of the fuse when i get back home tonight.

In the 7.3 mod section, Maintain posted a thread about the fog light mod, but I think it says not applicable to Canadian trucks with DRL (which mine is/has) if I were to pull this same fuse would I be in business or open a can of worms?

To get rid of my daytime running lights there was a box mounted on the core support behind my drivers side lights, I just unplugged the harness from it and that took care of it, not sure if its the same on a SD

Yes the OBS is different. Did you do any splicing after you unplugged the module so your park brake light works again?

Nope I didnt do any splicing so my high beams light doesnt come on, not a big deal. Are you talking about the e brake light? if so my ebrake lost the cables running down the frame before I bought it so I dont have to worry about that. lol but it still comes on
