Default Running lights

I wanted to change my running lights up front to just the inner and outer amber lights (like the older rangers). Has anyone attempted this?

Not following...those are what light up if you only twist your headlight switch to the first position...

Lol. Canadian cars have to have headlights I think. My friend bought a Canadian altima, lights are always on, no matter where the switch is.

I couldnt find a separate fuse or relay for the DRLs... i wonder if its in the switch itself.

I don't know anything about Canadian law but I'd bet it's illegal anyway.
