Look for disabling DRL in the SJB. It is most likely there. You may need to go into the cluster too as you may get an error message after disabeling them.
Look for it under module programming. Look for programming option that Does NOT say "as built". If you only have the as-built option, you will need to edit it manually. I dont know if anyone has figured out which "bit to flip". Make sure you either backup or write down the values before you change anything. So if something goes whacky, you can undo it.

Thanks, but whatever is not As Built doesn't have such option...
Also I don't have such module in list. IPC, PCM and so on. Also no GEM which is weird. And I can't open OCM module - says operation interrupted ...

If you dont have the hs/ms can switch you wont be able to access the sjb.
Do you see a popup in forscan telling you to switch to ms can? This should pop up after forscan starts discovering modules in the car.

Nope, it doesn't ask.
Anyway, I'll get my new adapter ELS27 on monday, it does have this switch programmed in, so I'll give it a try.

There are instructions on how to add this switch to the ELM. Just need to buy the switch and solder in a couple of wires. I did this to mine and it works.

Ok, so I've got my scanner. Now I can see GEM, although if I go for not "as built" there is no option to disable DRLs.
I guess I'll have to do it the hard way and guess which 0 or 1 to flip...
