Re: how do i disable DRL?
itshb.......and who ever else cares.
Thanks for the reply, I just went to check if my switch had a DRL area and it doesn't. All I have is off-parking lights-headlights. I do have a dome override button, and just for $hits & grins I pressed it several times - still no DRLs. I changed fuse #15 - no lights. I have also looked for broken/cut wires - didn't find any. "E" brake is not set, and the green light in the dash does work. I called the dealer and told them all of this, they said that if nothing is wrong (fuse, wire, ect.) that there is a way to do it with the computer and maybe ILLEGALLY<--(see note below) someone used the tech2 programmer on my computer to turn them off. So basicly they want $45 to hook up the computer to make me legal again! I told them that's bull**** my truck looks like an older truck at a glance so I doubt I'll be pulled over for it.
Why is it illegal to turn the DRL off? This truck now functions exactly like my '90 does, so is my 90 chev. also illegal? Or is that just one of those stupid laws that say if it was meant to be working and it isn't you are illegal? <-- I have heard of a law like this, a buddy of mine added over 200 lights to his semi. 3 months later a cop pulled him over and ticketed him for not having all lights operational. The light that was out wasn't even a factory light, it was one of the added 200!
Any of you guys that went to chevy tech school hear about this computer BS or are they trying to rip me off?
