    turn off daytime running lights

    2001 kw t800
    Who can tell me how to turn off the daytime running lights
    They come on when you release the brakes
    Tried pulling the fuse for them but that also kills my in-dash computer

    There is a pressure switch in your dash... as soon as you push it in the lights come on... It is probably on the brake valve (yellow and red buttons)

    But will doing that also mess with the way that the high idle will no longer automatically kick down when i release the brakes?

    I'd check with a KW dealer, may be a way to reprogram that function. Why do you want to disable the DRLs?

    Just unplug the daytime running light module, its in behind the switch panel most the time (sometimes requires a bit of looking around) its a little black box about 1.5" x 3"
