DRL relay for a 97

My buddy has a 97 and the DRL relay died leaving his lights on all the time. I did a search for DRL relay and not much usefull came up. He's gonna pull the plug for now but he dOesnt kno what too look for exactly. I have an idea but not on his 97. Could someone post up a picture and or a location/description?

For now he's just pulling his battery's connection.
His is also a 4.0L, ext cab manual.

Same thing happened years ago on my '97. I'm pretty sure I just pulled a fuse - not a relay. That was a while ago though!

The 97 DRL Module is larger than an ordinary automotive relay and is located near the driver side headlight, probably on the radiator core support. Look for an 8-position connector with seven wires present.

Thanks bob. I knew i could rely on you.
Adam, I would have recommended that but he bought it used, the guy did a hack job lowering it and installing exploded seats. So who knows....
