I have a 2000 Chevy Impala ls. The daytime running lights can't be turned off. I need this vehicle for my work as I am a contract employee working for the United States postal inspectors. I do workmens comp investigations and my main job is surveillance with my vehicle. These daytime running lights give me away in a surveillance mode. I have talked to my Chevy dealer, van Chevrolet of scottsdale AZ. Who state that they can disconnect these running lights with a part and they do it all the time for the local police dept. The also stated that the police bring in documentation for approval of doing this work. How can I get this documentation or what do I have to do to get these day time running lights disconnected. Please advise.
