How do I turn off daytime running lights on a Honda Ridgeline?

I like going to the drive-in theater near my home. The only problem is that I need to use the radio. When I have my accessories (and thus my radio) on, my Honda Ridgeline automatically turns on the daytime running lights, which annoys fellow moviegoers. How can I turn off the daytime running lights on my Honda Ridgeline?

Automatic daytime running lights are a safety feature on most modern Honda models, including the latest generation of the Ridgeline. Even so, they’re definitely not ideal for the drive-in! However, turning them off is quick and easy. To turn off the daytime running lights on a Honda Ridgeline, have the engine off, engage the emergency brake, and restart the car.
If the method above doesn’t work for whatever reason, your only other alternative is to pull the fuse for the daytime running lights. The fuse box of a Honda Ridgeline is under the steering column on the left-hand side. Once you find it, use the diagram on the underside of the lid or the owner’s manual to pull the appropriate fuse.
Just make sure to replace the fuse when the movie is over and check all your fuses as part of your routine maintenance schedule.
