the DRL's are software run for the 08. Unless you can befriend a Ford mechanic and have them software-tweak the smart junction box for you, i dont think theres a way (from what i've read). or just trade in your DRL'ed 08 for a DRL-less 09 :P

if its for HID's you're gonna have to go with the relay harness + antiflicker capacitor combo.

Please search next time, there are several threads with lots of information about this.
Anyways, LTL0540 is correct. You cannot simply remove a fuse and re-route them to your fogs like on the older models. It is controlled via SJB and nothing can be done.

Trailer Park Boys!

It's out TODAY??? In Canada, though, right? Because NOBODY I know has ever heard of that show here in the US, and when I get them to watch it, most wonder why we've never had it here in the US (and the rest just "don't get it"... some humor is lost on some people)...

Anyway. I wish some US network would see how friggin HILARIOUS that show is, and pick it up here! I have to find it on the net to watch it. Don't know how I'll get to see this new movie... hey! I'm in Milwaukee, WI -- Not too far from Canada... ROAD TRIP!!! Maybe I'll take the Swayze Express across the border, as long as I don't run into a Samsquanch!!! :)
