    2006 DRL removal

    I was looking up a way to eliminate the drl's on a 06' and I came across a harness that you unplug under the glove box..
    I was wondering if anyone would know if this harness is just strictly for drl's or if its going to affect anything else... I unplugged it and the drl's are off but it maybe kinda seems like the car idles a little differently, I dunno maybe I'm thinking it might so maybe its making me hear things.. I was just wondering what you guys thought.

    while it probably has nothing to do with the idle, i dont think its the best idea to just start unplugging harnesses just because a picture on the internet says to do so. plug it back in, and drive your car around. confirm the idle thing was just in your head. i would then leave it plugged in because DRL's make your car safer.

    i was exagerating to make a point. like i said before, plug it back in and drive around to make sure that the idle thing is just in your head, which i am sure it is. a harness in the glovebox usually will have nothing to do with the engine idle but with electronic accessories. but also, like i said before, its probably not a good idea to unplug any harness (or harnesses) unless you know exactly what where it starts and ends. and definetly dont unplug anything with yellow wiring b/c that is part of the airbag system and it will make your dash light up like a christmas tree.

    Well I understand your concern, I haven't set off any lights by doing this. I just don't like the drl's, I've never owned a car previous to this that did have them.. So just personal preference I guess to not wanting the lights on when I don't want them on. But I might just plug it back in and leave it stock.

    You could pull your E-brake up ONE click, which will shut off the daytime running lights, and is nowhere NEAR grabbing your wheels, but you'll have to put up with the red "BRAKE" light being on in your gauge cluster, and hopefully you remember to differentiate between one click up and all the way up when you get in the car and try to start going forward. It's safer than unplugging an unknown harness, but idk if I'd trust myself to remember to drop it, then pull it up one click. Your choice, It'd probably be pretty easy to get in the habit of it.
