I would try to disconnect the battery, cut the red/white on pin 12 and then reconnect the battery and turn the ign on and see if they go off.

Edit: I believe that this method will disable both auto and drl lights, which you don't want. I saw a thread on a forum of a guy who did the mod and had problems with the autolight function. He said that at night when you started the car they came on fine, but if you were driving and it got dark while you were driving, they never came on.
Thats interesting, i scoured the internet for people who have tried the mod and I've found someone who also said they had problems but didn't say anything specific... \do you know which forum you were on when you saw that post? I want to go look that up and ask the guy a question...

\I wonder what year he tried that mod on...
