Default Disable DRL -How?

Does anyone know how to disable DRL?

I know Lexus dealer can program this but thought I should ask you guys first to save some $$$ if I don't have to go to a Lexus dealer.

I want to keep the high beams, just don't need DRL.

Thanks.

yeah, this reminds me of a couple days ago i saw an 04-06 ls430 going by in the opposite direction with the normal old people driving it but i noticed that the drl's were not on. now i'm really curious because i doubt the old guy would have modded his, maybe they were both burned out

You can disable them with the toyota scanner. It is a lexus personalized setting, but I dont believe you can do it outside of the dealer unless someone has that software. Its pretty simple to do though.

Hey, I'm not old enough for a Buick, so I'll have to settle for a Lexus.

Wow, $110 to hook up a dopey machine and press a few buttons...

BTW, the Lexus I've gone to, no hot receptionists. Maybe when I'm 80, the 50 year old receptionist will seem hot...
