Chevy refuses to help with DRLs

I don't know if this post falls under this forum, but if anyone is thinking about trying to get help from Chevy with how to turn off your DRLs or anything else, don't bother. It's a safety feature and you can't turn it off. You are then transferred to a few different people through email, back to the original person, who then tells you that they will not give you the information you want and that they are closing the request for information. All I wanted to know was how to turn off the DRLs, which are only a safety feature as a matter of opinion (which I told them). They also responded to my question about whether my car can be towed flat by quoting the owner's manual, a simple yes or no would have been just fine.

it may just be a relay under the hood, or a fuse somewhere.

Good URL. I was thinking about the same thing.

If I were Chevy I wouldn't give you any advice either (liability issues). But, if you made the claim that you were troubleshooting an electrical problem, you might have been able to coax out the DRL-off info, .

im sure there is a fuse you can pull. my 98 blazer had it. you could also pay buku $$ and take it somewhere with a Tech II and turn it off through the BCM (body control module) some of GM's cars have a DRL module rather than a line of code in the BCM. my blazer had the option through the BCM. but my 08 aveo had a module. but its also a daewoo.

My 96 Chevy truck had a module located under the dash that I promptly unplugged. No more DRL.

Going to do the same thing to my newly acquired 96 Metro, as soon as I get the notorious burnt out headlights fixed. :lol:
