Probably not. Everything I tried would cause the "Service Vehicle Soon"
light to come on and set a code in the BCM. It appears that there is a
monitoring circuit that sets a code if it senses any malfunction of the
daytime running lights (DRLs). GM won't help either...they don't care what
you want...even if it's legal. The DRL was one reason I ditched my GM
vehicle...couldn't stand them (or the auto headlights either). Hope you
have better luck. Good luck! If you don't have better luck, buy a new 2005
Mustang OR a 2006 Dodge Charger, neither of those have DRLs.
Not sure if it will work but on my 1998 GMC Jimmy if you set the parking
break one click the lights stay off. I cant do it my brake peddle is broke
and wont stay latched. I looked at repairing it but it seems to be a replace
item and not worth the trouble of fixing it.

A couple of potential problems with this approach.
1. It causes the "Brake" warning light (on the dash) to remain illuminated.
This light serves two purposes. One, to remind the operator that the
emergency brake is not released AND, two, as a main brake system failure
2. On some models, this causes the ABS system to not function (since the
BCM "thinks" that the e-brake is still engaged)
3. Can cause excessive rear brake pad wear or overheating of the rear
So, probably not a good idea.
Try this URL. I have been to it before (maybe a month ago or so?) but
I just tried it before posting and the site won't load. Anyway, in
case it's just a glitch tonight, here is the URL:
Should be just what the doctor ordered.

Still doesn't. Can get part of it by searching for it in Google and
choosing the "cached" option, but for all the pix it is still trying
to get from the real host site.
