I'm looking to run my driving lights (fog lights) with just the parking lights on. Problem is the daytime running lights are on all the time. Is there away to shut off the DRL for good?
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

I think that your Canadian laws require DRL.

I don't really know about the fog lamps. ;)

Fog lamps aren't driving lights. The beam pattern is completely different.

DRLs are required by Canadian federal law.

But to answer your question, 2005 and newer E/M/Ts have DRLs controlled by the Smart Junction Box.

A Ford dealer would be able to de-program DRLs, but probably not in Canada.

DRLs are off when the e-brake is on. What some do is pull the e-brake just enough that the DRLs turn off. The DRL sensor switches the lights off far before the actual brake engagement........on my 'scape anyway.
