The Ford Fusion uses daytime running lights. The daytime running lights, however, are something that some drivers want to disable during the day while still being able to use them for driving at night. Ford has incorporated a plug that is relatively easy to access that will disable the daytime running lights on the Fusion. Even if you've never disabled the daytime running lights in your Fusion before, this job should take you no more than five minutes.
Things You'll Need
- Flat head screwdriver
Open the driver's side door and pry off the access panel on the end of the dash behind the door with a small, flat tip screwdriver.
Locate the small box mounted on the firewall with a small power connector running to the box.
Remove the power connector running to the small box to disable the daytime running lights.
