DRL, auto on switch

Does anyone see any reason why I shouldn't use the "one wire method" to disable DRL and auto-on (ie have normal complete control over the lights in the conventional manner), BUT add a switch so that I can still use the stock features?
I'm planning on running wire over the blank button fillers on the left under the power window lock and alarm light and mounting a switch there.
I don't mind DRL and I love the auto on feature. I used to leave the lights on in my Toyota Cressida all the time. With the switch I don't have to shine my lights in to peoples' windows at night and I can loose people chasing me on dark roads.

PS. Does anyone know what those blanks are for other than us hackers adding switches?

Those blanks are exactly what you said they are for ... switches of some kind... toyota probably used them for something otherwise they wouldn't be there.

I used the "one-wire" method for the DRLs and it's fine... works like a charm. I have no auto-on feature but that's fine with me ... I always thought that feature was annoying and you'd have to be a total idiot and lazy-ass to not work your own lights.
