During normal daylight operation, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate automatically, with the lighting control in the AUTO position.

The DRL switch on automatically under the following conditions:

  • The engine is running.

  • The gear selector is out of Park (P).

  • The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is not applied. Market dependent.

  • Auto lights are selected and high ambient light levels are detected.

Turn the lighting control to the OFF position to switch off the DRL. The DRL can be manually switched off only when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is running. Repeat the process to switch off the DRL during a journey.
