Ok. Here's a pic of the pin you need to bend (or remove) to disable Daytime Running Lights on Galants (and Eclipses). This module (known as the Front ECU Module) is under the hood, inside the fuse box, on the driver side. If you're not sure, look in the manual. Remove the Front ECU, and open it carefully using a flat screwdriver. You can "pop" the white snaps on the black metal part (it's a chip cooler) to completely access the pins, and remove the bottom cover (black plastic). Bend the second last (or 1st) of the SMALL pin connector. Re-assemble, and voila!

P.S. Please be careful. And do not sue me if something happens. You're a grown up, assume the consequences. :P

It works with all Galants / Eclipse 2004-2006 with red ECU (with Daytime Running Lights).

Visit this Eclipse post to read about other people who tried the fix...

Ok I read the post that it works and on my service manual it says that pin is number 22 which is SWS communication line with a value of 0-12 V (pulse signal). Any idea what SWS comminication line is?

Here is a copy of what the pins represent on the Front ECU. The last on not shown would be 31 which is ground
