    This was one of the first things I did to my car. Helps to be really flexible with that one. And it also helps to NOT be 6 foot 1 lol.

    I'd rather unplug something under the hood rather than contort myself to extract a fuse lol.

    Yeah I could tape it, but if water connects it, all that will do is run the DRL at full, rather than half power.
