    Default Override Automatic Headlights?

    Is there any way to override the automatic headlight on our trucks? I hate that I can't turn off my lights when I want to especially since I just installed some KC lights behind my grille.

    Try searching the topic. I did my wife's '02 Burb, but I think the '00 was different, and a pain.

    Good luck,

    I know with the GMT 900 platform you can twist the know to the left one click and shuts off DRL. (have to do it for every engine crank though....)
