I may be wrong but I think there is a fuse for just the DRL's.

read the install sections, theres a nice article. It takes maybe 5 min to disable them, its just cutting the #17 wire behind the cig lighter.

no. you have to take apart the center console and cut a wire. It will also disable the auto-on and may screw up your gas tank meter until your next fillup. There's an install for it in the Installs section. (top of your screen)

I didn't find it too hard at all. the center console is easy to take out, the hardest part is getting that harness out to get to the wire.

very simple. Follow the install section advice. Remeber, you won't have the sentinel lighting anymore, you will have to turn your lights on at night yourself. I have never regretted doing it, and you can always re-attach.

look in the installs section... you just cut a wire... but then your low beams dont go on automatically either... you need to turn them on by hand.

just do wut exactly the install guide says and ull be perfectly fine.
remove the shifter plastic assembly and on the right side there are 2 wiring harnesses, i think it was the bottom one on the right. the hardest part is to unplug the wiring from the base so you can cut the wire. i have an 02 gts and everything was perfect, and gas tank didnt reset and everything was smooth. make sure you tape the ends of the wires you cut so they wont accidently touch each other.
