2001 Taco Headlight "Off" Modification

The 2001 Taco has an annoying safety feature in my opinion. When you start the Taco the headlights turn On even when the Light Switch is Off. Does anyone know of a simple modification like replacing a fuse relay from a earlier year to bypass this unnecessary safety feature?

I searched and didn't find the thread.

just did it on my buddies 03 today. Look under the drivers side dash under the steering wheel. There is a relay that actually says running lights on a light blue sticker... Pull out the harnas and cut the 2nd wire(white with black stripe) replace the harnas and your done!!! There is a write up on ttora if you search for it

Are you referring to the daytime running lamps (DRL)? Do a search and you would have come across this thread.
