The car is equipped with Daytime running lights so it will always be on...to turn it off you must go in the hood and on the right side next to the engine air filter and fuse box, there is two smaller fuze boxes and the first one going from down to up direction labels DRL left and DRL right which are two fuses 10A or so take them off and they will not come on!

Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again
What did you plug in? I had a similar issue when I plugged in a high amp tire pump. It kept blowing fuses because the pump itself had a short. Be wary of using stuff like that in the cig lighter. I switched to a hand held pump. How was the computer found to be defective? I wonder if the cig issue shorted the computer?
the suggestion i can give is temporary. look the yellow-colored connector on the driver side. disconnect the connector. wait for few minutes and connect it back again. light come off for few days or so. this can be fix by those who have scan tool and diagnose what error code(s) need to be corrected.
It can be disabled by a competent person with good electrical skills. It is tied into the headlights by a DRL module, and not a simple procedure to fix. My question is why would you want to do away with it? The DRL's run on reduced power, so it's not a big issue for the alternator or for extended bulb life. (and it's a good safety feature. I like to see you coming on foggy days-lol.)
Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature only activates the front low beam headlights. The rear parking light are not turned on by the DRL, they only come on in dark conditions or by selecting the light manually.
I have a 2009 LE and the abs & brake warning light came on. Took it to the dealer, it is a known problem on some corollas. They ordered a speed sensor ($650) which is covered on the 60K warranty. The light went off the next day (part is not yet installed).
You can't disable them it's illegal. If you need to shut them off while the engine runs say at drive-in, apply the parking brake (this works on some but not all cars, and don't try driving with parking brake engaged just one click).
