2012 LR4 LED Disable...

Is there a way to disable the led ring completely? I do not want these "ben wa ball" inspired lights on at all and would prefer they be disabled permanently. Currently the LED is off unless headlights are on. I would like them off even with the headlights.
If there isn't a coding option could I change the pin-out on the harness?

I guess I am the only one who has considered disabling this. If I find any real answers which resolve this I will post.

While I enjoy and prefer the look of the LED strip on my LR4 Landmark I have never liked the bead inspired LED halos on pre-face lift and on the RRS and RR. After searching the forums and youtube for possible options on disabling these peculiar lights I decided to take apart the headlight and go at it myself. It is a fairly simple process and if you have about twenty minutes of free time, a 7mm socket and black electrical tape you can disable them as well without IIDT or any CEL or error messages. Attached below are images of what to do and where to do it. I hope this helps anyone looking to do disable these lights down the road. Enjoy.

Glad I could help. Post photos if and when you do the "mod".
