Is there a way to turn off running lights off.

It does not seem right to have all lights including running lights on while running during the day. Is there any way off turning all or some of the lights out. Thanks for your help.

I turn my lights on when hauling my 5th wheel "seen and be seen"
Not really sure why you don't care to have them on?

I was in MB getting service yesterday and asked the man about turning off the lights. He was surprised that they were on all the time but that he would ask his tech. I ran into another situation and forget to ask him but have to go back this week to finish up the service. Will try to remember and advise...

Can't understand why you would want to disable this safety feature, it has been proven to be very effective.

Have to agree with DDC, I can't understand disabling lights just because their on when the vehicle is running. It's not like your going to run the battery down or something.

Your search-foo or memory are better than mine. I couldn't find that thread.

Cop shops disable them all the time.
On another forum someone posted that he was warned by base MP's that they need to be off when driving up to the gate.
One word, DRL does not mean your tail lights work.(okay that is more than one)
