How to turn running lights off?

When this Soul EV limited is parked and I turn the lights (headlamps) off, I find that a strip of led lights remain on. I think these are called running lights, and they provide diffuse light. The light is really quite bright and I want to learn what options might exist to turn them off even on a temporary basis. Of course I could cover this led strip with cloth or tape, but I’m wondering whether an electronic switch could be put in to turn them off, or if I could remove a fuse or something? Hope to hear if there are any ideas. I like to watch nature in the car, with climate controls on, and don’t want the unnecessary lights disturbing the scene.

Yes! After reading through that long link I found the simple answer: when the parking brake is on the daylight running lights turn off.

Many owners have found that it does not work. Does it work on yours, and, if so, what year is it?
