How can I turn off the day time running lights on the car? I turned the light switch to the off button but it still turns on when I drive. How do I go about to turn this off?

There should be a separate fuse/relay for the DRL in the engine compartment fuse box.

the DRL automatically turns on as soon as you put the parking brake down. not sure if anyone has disable their drl's before but I would like to know also.

on my 09 civic all I had to do was pull a fuse to disable DRK;s

So its not like you can use the toggle switches or a button to turn or press to turn it off. Because I have another car that has DRL and I am able to turn it on or off whenever I like. I do not need to go unplug a fuse. I do it right behind the steering.

nope not on the Elantra. I do know what you mean, our old car was able to do the same thing. turn off DRL just by the switch on the steering wheel.

It's a safety feature. In Canada, DRL's are mandatory, and it is illegal to drive without them activated.

I would be happy with the fact that your new Elantra comes with a safety feature which makes you more visible on the road, and thus less likely to be involved in an accident.

That was my question, why wouldn't you want them on all the time?

I did a mod on my 09 Santa Fe so my fog lamps are on during the day for running lights as the Santa Fe didn't have DRL in 09.

If they were led or xenon I wouldn't mind but I don't like those ugly yellow lights on. Plus it just means something I need to replace in the long run when they burn out.

I wouldn't worry about replacing your DRL bulbs frequently, as I believe they are your high beams on a low setting. My old Sonata had the same set up and I never had to change the DRL's in the 4 year of owner ship. And yeah I think it might be mandatory to have them activated.

Why would you disable a safety feature that could save your life along with your passengers? I would never do this!
