Eliminating daytime running lights

Well, this didn't work.
"Behind the fuse box in the drivers footwell is the headlight relay with a big white connector with 2 rows of wires going into it. Pull that out (press in the tab to release it.)
On the top row of wires is one that is a red wire with a black tracer and silver bands on it. Use an unbent paper clip - I used the point of my test light - to depress the tab holding it in, remove it from the connector and wrap it with electrical tape. You have now disconnected the DRLs.
Now for that pesky dashboard light. Same connector, bottom row, is an orange wire with a white tracer. Detach and tape in the same manner.
No more DRLs and no obnoxious little dashboard light either."
The little orange wire with the white tracer did eliminate the dashboard light on my 1998 Tracker, but the red wire with a black tracer and silver bands on it did NOT cut out my daytime running lights.
Any other ideas? Which wire do I cut to kill those damn daytime lights?

Re: Eliminating daytime running lights

Why would you go through such a hassle to turn them off? Are they that annoying?

I must be missing something.
