On a '97 Canadian C class the DRL can be disactivated by pulling a control unit attached to the harness of the headlight switch. The unit is about cigarette box size and could be found if you remove the knee panel under steering column and follow the wires from the back of light switch with attention to the metal cross-member under the dash. Pulling the box off brings the car to `normal' non-DRL condition.

Hope this helps.

Cool info. Thanks!

Thanks for the '97 C class details, so you just completely remove/disconnect the module and the jobs done? I'll give it a try...

TIFOSI,

Yes, just unplug the unit will do it. I forgot to mention the unit is and will remain attached to a set of harness unpluged. Just use a long zip-tie to secure it from dangling.

By the way, an extension will be needed to get to the 8mm screw deep in the hole of the knee panel.

If you are careful, the job could be done without removing the parking brake cable release from the knee panel. Just pull and hold the brake release handle out when you remove the knee panel screw behind it.

Good driving.

C.F.
