Re: Disable DRL
It's connected to the right side of the steering column, about mid way between the firewall and the dash. If you lay your drivers seat back all the way down, you can lay on your back and look up behind the dash. (Now there's a clever tip you're not going to read anywhere else.)
From that position, the relay/connector that is pictured, will be to your left. (Right side of the column.)
Cutting the red wire as marked in the picture will disable, the DRL's and also the "Auto" headlights feature.
But I prefer to turn my own headlights on and off, thank you Government Bureaucrats, and Insurance Nazi's....NOT.
So if you decide to cut the wire, in order to use HID's..then be sure to cut it about two inches, or so, from the plug, so it will be easy to reverse in the future, should you ever decide to go back to dim Halogen bulbs and Automatic Headlights.
A word of caution here too.
And this is important.
DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR OUT ON THE ROAD UNTIL YOU RE-AIM YOUR LIGHTS !!!
(Yeah I'm yelling that, and for good reason.)
The HID's light source, and the halogen filament are not exactly at the same point, so the light could be aimed too high.
You could blind oncoming traffic with the new HID's....and you never know how pissed off somebody can get until you blind them.
Just keep in mind they might be armed, and just pissed enough to follow you...and then put an end to your lights. (I guess that would mean, like punching your lights out, huh?) lol
Enjoy your car, and respect others at the same time.
Good policy to live by.
