    Keep your ebrake up on the first notch. It keeps the headlights from coming on automatically. It doesn't engage the brakes either as long as you keep it on the first notch. The brake light will light up on the gauge cluster.

    I asked the same question a little while ago, I'v never tried this, hope it works. A guy on this board sent us all a detailed way to disable the sensor, complete with pics. I'm going to try to post it, if it doesn't work this time, I promise to get posted later. It IS what you're all looking for. It over-rides the factory sensor and gives you complete control to turn them on and off at will. I like to run the driving lights with the running lights due to my headlight covers. It's a cool effect. Again, if this doesn't work, be patient, I'll try again after work.

    If you guys go to the link I posted it will show you how to disable the auto headlight function completely. Then you won't have to play with your parking brake, you can use it when the car is parked!

    tried it last night, worked perfectly. kinda fun to play with. none of the lights turn on until you push the handbrake down. me and my pals were having fun with it.

    Here is the method I am going to do next week http://www.xse.com/leres/ss/drl.html. Instead of just saudering in a wire, I am going to sauder a wire to each spot on the board, then wire in a switch. This way I can turn the DRL on if I ever have to. This way is very easy cause I've had the radio out and looked at the area where this needs to be done to. Goodluck, or the ebrake always works great!

    Thats my site. Its actually pretty easy to disable them. Then you never have to worry about using the e-brake.

    That's why we bought Trans Ams. We are smart enough to know when to turn on our headlights, don't need no stinkin' automatic headlights!
