    I’m looking to disable the daytime running lights. Does anybody know where and how hard it will be to do? I’ve read that it could be a pressure switch on the yellow brake valve, if so does anyone know how hard it would be to take the valve controller apart? Thank you in advance.

    All of the trucks I’ve dealt with that had DRL’s had a fuse for them, pull the fuse and they didn’t come on any more. But I’ve never had any dealings with a 2017.

    MY understanding ( being its a 2017 ) is that it is computer controlled and needs to be turned off via hooking up at the dealership. ( don't quote me, it's what I've heard from the little birdies )
