Q: Can anyone tell me how to disable daytime running lights on a 2019 Mazda CX-5? According to the owner’s manual it’s possible, but one page just refers me back to the other. Their manuals are awful!
A: I found this from another thread and thought this would be very useful on the how-to forum for people who want to disable their DRL.
HERE’S HOW TO DO IT::
1) car set to ignition (car is active, but engine is off)
2) press brake pedal down and hold during the whole time
3) parking brake up
you have to do the whole process once you start under 23 sec.
4) turn parking light on and off 5 times. on – off – on – off – on – off , etc.
under 2 sec start #5
5) turn hazard light on and off 5 times.
under 2 sec start #6
6) turn parking light on and off 5 times.
7) to check if the DRL still comes on, simply disengage the parking brake. If it doesn’t come on, then you’re done. Otherwise repeat the process again.
Repeat same step to reactivate
