How to Disconect DRL on 04-08 4.6L.

Open hood and fuse panel is on drivers side inner fender.


Use small screw driver if needed to open fuse panel.


Remove DRL relay which is indicated in owners manual. Then reinstall fuse cover.



Finished result: no DRL's but you can still use driving lights

The 5.4L is basically the same thing but the fuse panel and relay is slightly different shape.

Nice post....I'll have to ask around the v6 forums to see if there is a way to do that with the 97-03, 04 (heritage) models, other than taking the rubber bumper off of the E-brake pedal


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Just look in the owners manual for your truck it list's the relays and fuse locations
Need a manual http://www.analogstereo.com/ford_f150_owners_manual.htm(orange links under red truck)

I think I will be doing that when I get home!


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

On the 97-03 models you have to unplug the DRL module from behind the left side front bumper and I would go to the dealer and get the DRL resistor (plug) that was used on the American trucks, and put that in


Location of DRL module on 97-03's

Thats a great pic skrwz..it also helps out with something Extreme and I were talking about. That even if your truck didnt come with fog lights the factory harness still came with the fog light connectors behind the bumper.
