3) Depress brake pedal
4) Engage parking brake
5) Proceed with the on/off stuff from the OP.
This further supports my analogy of an old Nintendo cheat code...too funny.

Nintendo...from Japan...Mazda? From Japan. The Japanese enjoy their cheat codes apparently.

The trick to doing it is that even though you have 23 seconds to do the sequence, you have to do each step right after the other.

What I did:

Put the car in Ign mode, (start button twice, no brake, all the dash lights come on).

Handbrake On.

Headlight switch to "off"

Then, all in one concerted action:

Foot on brake (hold through the entire sequence)
headlight switch from "off" to "parking light" 5 times
hazards "on" and "off" 5 times (push button 10 times)
headlight switch from "off" to "parking light" 5 times

The key is that you only have 2 seconds after push the brake to start the sequence.

To know if it worked, You have to start the car and put it in gear. On the 2017s the DRLs don't come on until the car is in gear and moving.
So you mean on the 2017 SGT after do this combo and put D shift and drive, the DRL headlights are no longer turning on?

Yes. That's correct. To re-activate them, do the same sequence again.

I just want to learn to catch the knives by the handles.

Just turn your fog lights off and run with your parking lights on.

My Red Rocket (Rdrokit) I sure do miss her.

Dear Friends!

Today I successfully removed both fuses depicted with DRL in the fuse box, but my halogen DRLs are still on along with my LED foglight covers.
I can't believe what's going on in this car not to allow me to disable my halogen factory DRLs.

(No, I am not crazy, I don't want to be unseen, but I hate the sight of my car when the yellow factory halogen drls are on at the same time along with my foglight cover cool white LEDs. So I would like to turn off somehow the factory halogens)

Just confirmed, it's easier to just pull the fuse.

It works and high beams still work

No, in my car fuse pull out is not working.

I removed even the big fuse, but now the low beams don't work, but the halogen DRLs do.

Any input please?
Any correct fuse box pics?
