I dont know if this will happen with air brakes as my truck didn't have drl's.

On finding presure switch, you may look by the manifold, usually close to the steering column- sometimes outside the cab, sometimes under the dash. But you will have to test the switches, as some systems have 2 switches, for brakes, pressures, and you may have more, Im not sure on that kind of system.
If it was me, I would find the ground for the headlamp, isolate those 2 wires and place a switch on the ground wires, then you can just ground the other switch lead to any body grounded area. You will just have to remember that you need the switch to be "normally closed" for your lights to work. Also this way you won't ever have to worry about "shorting" any circuits out.

Mt I think its a model that can't be removed.
If you remove the drl module other things wont work.

Well technically it would probably fall under the BCM ( body control module).
Under many manuf. This (drl) is a fused separate circuit, albeit not all manuf. may have this, but I've run accross it as a seperate circuit many times.

*** if you read my note under the stars, it will tell you how to achieve this without hurting any circuits or modules.
- but again only disconnect (or cut) the ground wire from the drl lamps only. As many systems have multiple grounds connected at one "eyelet" type connector that bolts to frame or body. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE WHOLE GROUNDING, MULTI WIRE EYELET- THIS WILL EFFECT OTHER SYSTEMS.
- ALSO this will prevent any shorting issues if someone happens to route a wire wrong.
