The dealer is correct, you cannot simply cut or disconnect the wires.  A resistor must be added to simulate a daylight condition on the sensor.

The DRL's are not effected by this and will function like normal.

I disabled my '99 lights, and my '02's lights.  Best "mod" I've done.  Can't stand the autoheadlights going on and off as you drive through dark and light areas of town near dusk.  Biggest joke there is.  

The 2003's have a four-position light switch (like Ford has had for a few years now ??? ) that allows you to select whether you want control over the headlights or automatic mode.  Hmmm, only took them three years to figure that one out.   :angry:

I like my R&D Headlight Override kit because you can have it set up with auto headlights or manual headlights at the push of a button.  some of the "free" mods can be set up the same way with a switch added in there somewhere, but I'm not very good with electrical stuff, so the pre-made kit was more for me.  Even though it cost a bit, I still like it.  :cheers:
