The daytime running lights are designed to be always on. The only way I can think for you to turn them off is to go to the fuse panel on the left end of your dashboard and pull fuse #8...I'm pretty sure that is the fuse for the DRL module. Check your owner's manual and verify that, ok?

Push down on your parking brake to the first click, just far enough that the lights go off and the brakes don't drag. Once your done, just release the parking brakes again and the lights should come back on. Good luck and Merry Christmas.

Simple solution is to trace the wire feeding the DTRL and cut the ground. No need to even insulate it.

Daytime Running Lights on 07 Volkswagen Rabbit 2.5


I asked my VW friend. He said that bulb was only intended to keep the headlight area slightly lit up in the event the main light burnt out.
Some sort of safety feature.
He also said DRL's were not an option on his 2009 rabbit

Daytime running lights work but go out when I turn headlights on. Ruled out headlight switch, bulbs, fuses, relay, ground, and DRL module. 98 silverado 1500 has no high beams. headlights work with parking...


If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column.

Volvo xc90 daytime running lights


I'm not sure about your model, but some Volvos come with a little screwdriver hole adjacent to the headlight switch that you can turn to shut the DRL off. I believe the slot needs to be horizontal to be in the off position.

Good luck!!

I need to add daytime running lamps to an 08 exlorer u.s. version non fleet. any suggestions?


All you have to do is carry it to your dealer and have them install there IDS scan tool and access programmable parameters in the smart junction box and turn on the feature.

Here is a copy of a broadcast message from Ford(sorry for the caps I just copied and pasted) on this:
20328 2006-2008 EXPLORER 4DR/MOUNTAINEER/2007-2008 EXPLORER SPORT TRAC - DAYTIME RUNNING LAMP ACTIVATION/DEACTIVATION
SOME 2006-2008 EXPLORER 4DR/MOUNTAINEER, AND 2007-2008 EXPLORER SPORT TRAC VEHICLES MAY HAVE CUSTOMERS THAT DESIRE TO ACTIVATE OR DEACTIVATE THE DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS (DRL). THE FEATURE HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE IDS AND PDS SCAN TOOLS AS A PROGRAMMABLE PARAMETER. THE PROCEDURE IS TO: SELECT MODULE PROGRAMMING FROM TOOLBOX, SELECT PROGRAMMABLE PARAMETERS, EXTERIOR LIGHTS. DRL WILL BE ONE OF THE SELECTIONS WITH ENABLE/DISABLE AS OPTIONS. NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WARRANTABLE REPAIR.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 07/03/2008

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.
