Okay, so today I removed the #79 relay. I saw a post on here in the last two weeks, that told how to shut off the DRL.. Now I can't find it. I also got a Euroswitch, with the DRL's turned off can in the middle position, I have the DRL's off and be able to controll front fogs. So they can be my primary lights in that position. I am getting Fogs in a few weeks and I would like to find this out soon.

Thanks,
Jon

someone told me if you pull up on the parkin brake handle it will turn them off

:D or :crazy:
This is true, but why would you want to drive with your parking brake on? Pull 173 if you want to disable DRL's, I did it, and have had no issues whatsoever. My bulbs have lasted about 8 months so far and are still going strong. I replaced them twice in the 4 months before I disabled them.

If you have the newer body style Passat, All you have to do is install the switch and remove RELAY #173. I have the same thing done and there is NO daytime running lights on at all :thumbup:

That is what it is.. I need to get it back in. My remote and the trunk release button do not work.. I have to find someone with little hands to put it back in..
