    headlights wont turn off

    I have a 03 KW T600 with daytime running lights that are supposed to turn off when you set the parking brake, but they dont. Does anybody know how to fix this problem.

    Pull the fuse or breaker that is designated DRL

    There must be a little switch that is operated by the air pressure in the dash by the parking brake valve that needs to be replaced.

    On most units it is, as was stated, the pressure switch, mounted with or near the brake release valve and pulling fuses will also shut off other things like cruise control. also if you rip and tear then someone else tries to fix it properly, it could cost you a lot of money, for them to find what you did, plus the original problem.

    On this glorified Freightshaker, I mean Western Star, pulling the DRL fuse kills all the gauges. Having the DRLs flash randomly at night is not conducive to a good night's sleep in certain locales!

    Here's my guess. Maybe it's like my van. The headlights don't shut off when parking brake is engaged while the engine is running. Engage the parking brake 1st, then start the engine, no lights. The lights don't come on till after the brake is released. Try shutting your engine off after parking, then restart it.
