What year is it?
Have you checked your owner's manual?
Here is some info that I found for you.
All Canadian vehicles (since the early 90"s) have to have DRL's
There is a relay box that the DRLs plug into... unplug it and the DRL goes away. I would tape the end of the plug (to keep dirt out) and secure it from flapping around.
It's mounted on the cowl/firewall approx below the vent... 2 screws and a weather plug. The box is pretty small maybe 2"x2".
Jeep TJ (1997+). (Possibly superceded by above.) Manufactured in Canada come equipped with dim DRL's. To disable them, you need to unplug the control module that operates them. Its located on the firewall under the hood, drivers side; Its about the size of a beeper (pager) Unplug it and make sure it dosen't dangle down onto the engine. The only side effect I have noticed is, the high beam indicator that tells you that your bright lights are on, doesn't work. But who really needs that anyway!!!!
Jeep TJ (2003).
Many people disable DRLs (daytime running lights) by unplugging the module itself. This works but will usually disable some other aspect such as your high beam indicator. The Jeep TJ (mine is a 2004 Rubicon) uses a motion sensor to send a signal to the DRL module to tell it the Jeep is moving and to activate the daytime running lights. To defeat this, you need to open the cable assembly leading into the DRL and find the wire which is coded WHITE/ORANGE and cut this wire so that the motion signal never reaches the DRL and the lights stay off until YOU want them by YOUR choice. There are no adverse effects whatever; everything else continues to work properly. I went a step further since I do want them on if I am on the highway for a long trip. I cut the wire and connected the two ends of this wire to a switch which is fixed under the hood. One position is DRL ON, the other is DRL OFF. I don't know what years or models this will work for but I suspect it would work for many situations.
06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
