My 2006 Grand Prix uses the headlights as DRLs but a coworker has the same generation but his DRLs are his front parking lights. Did Pontiac change that somewhere?

I think I know what you mean, but yes, my 2006 GXP also uses the headlights rather than the projector fogs or parking lights. Not sure of any tweaks, but there was a DRL auto-off hack we could build for 97-03's. Personally, I usually just default to killing the headlights and turning on fogs in the first 5sec before driving in daytime.

I always just manually turn off the DRLs. No running lights at all. Funny because the
" GETTING TO KNOW YOUR GRAND PRIX " book for 2006 reads on page 4
"......by lighting the amber lights in the lower front fascia....."
I think the amber lights look better IMO. My '98 Camaro uses the amber lights and looks pretty good during the day.
My Cobalt uses the headlights for DRLs but I just removed the DRL fuse. Wish the GP was that easy.

Ya, it was that easy in earlier GP's like my '98, but it became more interconnected as they moved into the 2000's. I'd just consider it a manual action for appearance purposes when you are driving, no big deal.
