Canada *** Daytime Running Light ***

Hi guys, I'm from Toronto. Does anyone know how to switch off the DRL? I don't want to have it switched on during the daytime. Thanks in advance.

I believe it's coded in the ECU for Canadian market cars, so I doubt it's possible. I've read elsewhere that it hasn't been possible to code the DRLs off in Canadian cars, which would be required for those wishing to use the Mini retrofit LED DRLs.

What year is your car? In some years, MINI went cheap and just turned on your lights all the time. That means even your taillights and side marker lights are permanently on whenever your engine is running.

Canadian law makes it illegal (for licensed mechanics) to deactivate the daytime running lights.
