There are two ways that I know of to do the Daytime Running Light Killer.

1. Purchase the item from TBlazed, a member at trailvoy.com. Here is his info:
Here's a LINK to a description of the DRL Killer.

Tblazed said:
Basically to install the module, it's all done at the BCM-fuse block ass'y under the back seat, very easy to get to. You cut one wire located in the wiring harness at the rear BCM-fuse block ass'y, attach two wires from the module to those two ends, connect module to 12V and GND.

Price is $36 total shipped, ($30 + $6 s/h 2-3 day Priority Mail), to US addresses only. Mails out the next day after payment is received.

If you would like it insured by USPS including signature confirmation upon delivery, add $3.40, $39.40 total insured.

I can take PayPal payment to my email address [email protected]

2. DIY wiring
. Here is a brief description of what needs to be done. I will have a better description and pics up within the week as this is the method I am going with.

You'll need a SPDT relay.(single pole double throw) similar to this:

Pinouts


First you have to tap the pink wire at the back of your head light switch
(this throws a negative when you turn your headlights on). Run this wire
through the large grommet to the left of your brake pedal and route it to
behind the driver's headlight. Connect this wire to pin 85 on your relay.

Next you'll need to connect a wire to constant power. You can get this either
at the battery or under the factory fuse cover that is under the hood.
Use the bolt to the left of the 125 amp fuse. Make sure you use your own
inline fuse on this wire(20 amp works fine). Connect this wire to pins 30&86 on
your relay.

Last connect 2 wires to pin 87 on your relay (1 goes to the power on the
Driver's side ballast & the other goes to the power on the passenger side ballast).

Ground the black (or ground wire) on each ballast.
Mount the ballasts and install your bulbs and you are done.

Sorry I don't have Pics but I'll take it all apart again on Sunday and post them up for you. If you need more help or more details post or you can email me and I'll help you out.

Call me stupid, but cant you just twist your light switch all the way to left to turn them off?

Your not stupid...you can do that, but to have to do it every time you get in the car is an unnecessary inconvenience. I would assume that if the lights flash when the alarm goes off, this would be bad for the HIDs as well.

no you have to turn them on your self. this mod is really only for the hid guys if you dont have hid lights then i would not do it. when the drl is on it does not send enough volts and will cause premature failure of expensive lights

Checo...The Auto headlights will still come on at night with the DRL Killer. This only keeps them from coming on during the day...

i believe they are the same. i bought my drl killer from a guy on trailvoy. i cant remember his name for the life of me right now. im sure if you do a DRL killer search youll find his name. (if i wasnt banned i could find it for you in two seconds.)
