Disable DRL's
 
I know there are a few threads about disabling the daytime running lights on the 2011-13 grand cherokee ha noodle removing a couple of relays.
Has anyone tried to disable them on the 2014's yet? I'm not talking about the led ones I'm just talking about the low beam ones. I want to put HIDs in but those kind of prevent this. That and I find them useless.

I didn't realize my '14 had any other DRLs besides the LEDs. Now, since the car has to be in drive, with the eBrake off, I'll have to let someone else sit in the driver's seat. :(

Not sure on all of them, but on my Limited w/ 8.4 UConnect, you can disable the DRL's from the user interface.

Unplug what? The low beams or the relays?

I think if you have the led's you don't have low beam drl's.

I know on the 5" there isn't a setting for it, at least nothing I can find and I have went through the settings multiple times.

Correct. It uses the LEDs as the DRL's.

Re: Disable DRL's
 
Well, I can confirm that you cannot disable them the same as the 2011-13's there is no relay box like the one pictured in the thread that Scott created. I also found out that removing the DRL fuse does nothing, which makes me wonder about its purpose in the first place...

Edit: I had my wife sit in it and turn the blinker on and off thinking I could find a relay that controls one side or the other for drl's and couldn't find anything. I know the heated seats and heated steering wheel relays are under the passenger seat but I didn't hear any clicking from that area either, I guess now it is time for a trip to the dealer to see if they can be shut off with a scan tool, or maybe they can get me the electrical diagram by chance...
