Well, I have a set of HIDs on my Silveracarry out. In order for them to occupational correctly I had to disable the Daytime Running Lights. Even if I had actually a consistent collection of bulbs I would certainly still take into consideration doing this, bulb life rises given that they aren"t on all the time. Very easy, first disaffix the negative pole of the battery. Second, open up the fusage box thats inside the engine compartment and uncover the DRL and DRL2 foffers on the diagram on ago of the cover. Once you have located their area simply pull them out. Reattach the battery and also your set. This only disables the daytime running lights, has no influence on the Auto-light attribute, headlights will still come on at night and also once the photocell senses low light.

Please Note-

 

DRLs are a safety feature on your truck to aid prevent a head-on collision, perform this at your very own danger. Also check your location about any laws, some locations need DRLs.

If you desire your HIDs to last you have to disable the photo-cell. HIDs dont choose the on and also off that happens at night as soon as you put the key in and start it. I learned the hard way.

Any concept just how to disable it too? Having complete manage over the lights would certainly be so a lot better! I have actually not uncovered any type of details on just how to execute it on mine, just older version trucks.

Really? Not mine, I had actually to execute it myself yet on an additional note I see you are going to obtain HIDs right? If you execute than you must look into disabling the Auto Light Feature, already went via a set on mine.

I"ve been interested in gain HID"s, yet I"ve been adhering to all the threads about the auto headlight sensor and also this is what I uncovered on another sight:

 

2007-2008 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Denali, Denali XL, Sierra

This PI was superseded to update model years and also Recommendation/Instructions. Please discard PIT4328.

The following diagnosis can be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:

**** THIS INFORMATION APPLIES TO UNITED STATE VEHICLES ONLY ****

All researches for Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) disable are to be referred to Techline Customer Support Center (TCSC). Instruction about vehicle qualifications and also requirements for DRL disable will be provided by TCSC. TCSC is GM"s central record maintaining area for all of these repursuits. TCSC toll cost-free number is 1-800 828-6860.

**** THIS INFORMATION APPLIES TO U.S. VEHICLES ONLY ****

Researches for DRL/auto headlamp disconnects should be made by correct agencies. The automobile in question have to be owned by a regulation enforcement agency, military agency or protection agency. (City/State, Sheriff, FBI, CIA, DEA, Emergency Vehicles.Etc.) It is recommfinished the dealership achieve a letter on the agencies letterhead requesting the DRLS/auto headlamps be disabled. The letter need to contain the particular automobile identification number which will be disabled, and also a statement which reads, "the DRL/auto headlamp system will be made fully operational before disposal/sale of the vehicle." the letter have to be kept in the automobile company file at the dealership.

Recommendation/Instructions:

Procedures to disable daytime running lamps (DRL):

Have the dealership technician call Techline at 1-800-828-6860 and also repursuit a brand-new calibration for the truck body manage module (tbcm) that will disable the DRL"s. Recalibrate the TBCM through the brand-new calibration.

Procedures to disable to auto headlamps:

Unplug the ambient light sensor and also put a 600 ohm resistor in area of the sensor. The resistor will command the TBCM to revolve the auto headlamps off. The headlights will certainly currently need to be manually turned on with the headlight switch.

Secure the resistor and also connector to prevent rattles.and so on.

Note:Vehicles equipped through Automatic HVAC (RPO CJ2) may have actually a light sensor that also contains the sunload sensor for the HVAC device. Make certain the resistor is wired into the ambient light sensor signal wire (Circuit 278) and also ground (Circuit 1851). This have the right to be completed by backing out pin 2 at the light sensor and also rerelocating the terminal and also including the resistor to the wire and also then splicing the various other finish of the resistor to the ground wire 2 inches from the light sensor.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoabout and also complete each step. If the problem displayed is resolved without completing eextremely step, the remaining steps execute not must be percreated.m up via on another site:

 

It"s recommfinished that a 600 ohm resistor is provided, is this the ideal way? Or can a a 1.5 ohm resistor be used? And does anyone have actually pictures or videos of just how to unplug the ambient light sensor on the dash board? Any info is appreciated.
