Dodge headlight/ignition interlock

I have a 1995 Dodge Caravan that requires that the headlights or parking lights be on before the car will start. My son (who is NOT a motorhead) told me that the car was probably intended to be sold in Canada, where daytime running lights are required.

Whether or not that is accurate, what I want to know is, can this interlock be deactivated? I don't often leave the headlights on, but when I do, the battery ends up dead and the car has to be jumpstarted.
