well i found the fuse for it.. but it also knocks out the horn, high beam flicker.. and reverse lights.. hmm i dont' want that tho.. theres gota be just a wire i can cut.. wut are those 2 relays beside the master fuse panel under the hood? theres relay 1 and 2... theres a relay in the #1 slot.. but not 2.. maybe this has anything to do with the lights? i don't no..

Hey, Trav

The relay is probably for your headlights.

Why not just remove the light bulbs?

the reason for not removing the light bulds is because there is only one buld in there.. day time lights are the high beams on a dim setting.. theres gota be a module for the whole day time light set up.. just a matter of finding it to unplug it..

There should be a box with a big heat sink on it. Usually mounted to the firewall, beside the rad or even behind the bumper.

Your welcome. What a wonderful place for the module. When you get into $50 dollar bumper bender, you have to replace a $200 module.
