I have recently purchased a 2001, GMC, Yukon XL. Generally I am pleased with the vehicle. However, there are two features that I do not like and do not want:

1. The daylight driving lights.
2. The automatic headlights feature.

I would like to know if there is any way to disable these features? Without being an electronic expert.

    Read the manual about the DRL's

    YOu can disable them (at least in my 2000 silverado) by pushing the dome override button (to the left of the steerring wheel) 4 times continuosly. YOu should hear a chime and they will go off

    How come you want the drls off? You cant see them while driving.

    I have no idea about the auto headlights. I kinda like that feature except sometimes they are on in the morning when it is pretty bright out and there is no need for them. Might be a fuse you could pull?

    Hope this helped

    I have the same truck- 2001 3/4 ton Yukon XL

    You disable both with the dome override trick discribed above.

    One other thing you can do is pull the bulbs out of the DRL sockets, they are all alone and do not have anything to do with your headlights, or highbeams.

    Only problem to the dome override trick is that you have to do it every time you cycle the ignition switch.
