I think this would depend on the vehicle....nearly all that I have seen are the headlights themselves, remove them and you have no lights. I found on my 96 Geo Metro that pulling up the E-brake to where it first latches will make them go off, but I can feel the car slow from brake drag....I then grounded the wire that goes to the E-brake and the DRL are disabled, but the headlights work just fine, but now there is the E-brake light on the dash. I might just remove that idiot light because I know when the brake is engaged....the car will not budge. I disable my DRL because when I do EOC then start the motor back up people wonder why I am flashing my lights at them.
