2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

Pop the hood and find a small fuse box about 2" x 3" on the left side engine bay just in front of hood strut. Pop the top and there are 4 square relays. Unplug the two on the right side. DRL's are disabled.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

Not advisable in my part of the world. It is illegal to operate a newer vehicle without DRL's. I think the fine is like $150.00.
In my 38 years of driving, first two things I have always done before starting out:

Fasten seat belt
Turn on headlights and fogs .

Back in the 70's when I drove motorcycles I really appreciated headlights in the daytime.

Its near impossible to get done, Ive phoned every dealership in Saskatchewan. and I even tried edmonton or calgary. No one will do it because its super illegal, and they dont want to get caught.

Unless you can figure it out yourself, which most people cant because its not as simple as pulling out a relay or fuse, you are basically fuccked LOL..

sorry to burst your bubble dude!

where in canada u from??

US-spec WK2s don't have DRLs, correct?

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I think they are all built with DRL, and they made it easier to disable if people wish to do so.

I could be wrong.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I wish we could at least get the WK's to use low beam as DRL's vs low voltage high beam.
