Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you're wanting to disable the park lamps, which I couldn't recommend doing for safety concerned. You're wanting to disable the ***** *****ghts at each corner of the vehicle?

Your first post said that daytime running lights were not what you were trying to disable.

Daytime running lights are low intensity headlamps that come on while the engine is running. Park lamps are the front and rear lamps at each corner. Are these the lights you're trying to disable?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Indeed these are park lamps ( front and rear) with numberplate. I want to disable the permanent ignition of this lights, in order to lihgt it simply with the rotary switch of dashboard. Because this permanent lights come on while the contact ignition only. And no while the engine is running.

This operation is very disadvantageous to the alternator and battery. Moreover, I uses electrical accessories when the engine is off.
Therefore it is important to have the ability to swiycht off the lights.

I don't know that it's possible or legal to disable these lights but I will try and locate service information for the vehicle and get back to you.
