    Daytime running lights on 2000 Escalade

    How in the eff do I shut off those stupid DRLs on a 2000 Escalade. On my 2000 Silverado I could press the Dome Override button 4 times, it would chime then turn off the DRLs, but that's not the case on my Escalade. The fuse that runs the DRLs also runs the fog lights so if I pull that I can't use my fog lights. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The 2000's DLRs run off the actual headlights, unfortunately.

    oh boy not good try this i googled some info for if it don't work let me know and i will look more into it for you i know on this i had a 99 chrysler concorde the drl's was like this bugged the heck out of me still haven't found how to disable them on it but here is the info 1999 Chevy/GMC full size trucks + Suburban/Tahoe By the right driver's knee under the dash is a fairly elaborate aluminum finned heat sink. It can be removed by bending the two bottom retaining clips, sliding it down, and unplugging the electrical connector. Presto, chango, no more DRL's! Plus it makes a nice paperweight.
    if this don't work there may more to look into unless someone else has done this

    and i also found this as of December 2010, there are no federal laws in the US that mandate DRLs on passenger vehicles. In fact, The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has denied a petition from General Motors to make DRLs mandatory. If your dealer refuses to disconnect your DRLs, saying "they're a mandatory safety item," then your dealer is lying, plain and simple.

    Re: Daytime running lights on 2000 Escalade

    i also have found this i hope all of this info helps 1999-2000 Cadillac STS I'd like to add a simple method for disabling DRL's WITH NO KNOWN NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS. On my 1999 Cadillac STS, the high beam bulb is used for the DRL. I cut the negative (ground) wire feeding this bulb, and attached (grounded) it to another metal screw (any other grounding source) by another piece of wire under the hood. I was pleased to find out that (for some reason) the daytime running lights were no more. Also, the high beam headlight switch remained fully operational, activating the high beams at night when desired, and during the day as a "flash to pass feature." it may be foe the sts but it is worth a shot to try good luck
