Ok I don't know much about the Prius, so I did a little research. The daytime running lights ARE the headlights, on a slightly different brightness. There is not a separate bulb or system. The system prevents the regular headlights, including tail lights from functioning in daylight, presumably to save every iota of energy. Cover the sensor to make it think it is darkness and that should allow all lights to work. Why you feel the need for this is none of my business, but I am curious
