Or is more like you want the lights to stay on when EOCing?

The lights wont flash if you just plain start the car. The fuel pump needs to run to get the car started, as well as keep it running. Now if you turn the key to on and leave it there without starting, the lights will come on while ....
On my 96 Geo I have not yet grounded the E-brake wire to shut off the DRLs. Every time I shut the key off they go out, turning the key to the on position does not make them come back on....they will come on as soon as the motor starts running.
