    um, the parking brake is fully manual isn't it? I never looked at mine to tell but there should be no wiring to it so sorta confused on why your headlights would be affected at all?

    Ok I might be missing something but everytime I lock my doors or turn on the alarm my headlights pop up and down also! I thought this was correct!

    once the gears are installed, the headlights should no longer go up and down when the alarm is activated. there should also be wiring to your e-brake for the dash indicator...which im sure also has something to do with the sensor you mentioned. once the e-brake is engaged i believe the drl should be inactive. i cant remember for sure though.
