2014 Front LED DRL not working...

Normally and in my settings these are checked to be on all the time. Checked my settings again and box is still checked to be on all the time but they are not on at all now unless headlamps are activated for any reason. Am I missing something or is there something defective? Can't seem to get them to come on in normal daylight driving like they always were up until a few weeks ago? Thanks !

Is headlight knob turned to "Auto"?

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

Yes it is. The front LEDs were always on anytime the engine was running day or night. Now they don't seem to be on at all, Unless full headlights are on...

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

SOLVED.... We believe the last recall update on the gear shifter altered the way this works. Pre Recall the DRLs were always on when the vehicle was running (parked or moving) and box was checked in settings...
After the Update the DRL's are on only if shifted into gear. if you are in park they are off. Even if box is checked to be on....That is a change I believe.....

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

The DRLs are supposed to stay on when even in park??? When did that start happening?? My 2014 has always done that. How do you make that work?

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

My DRL's both before and after shifter recall were only on when in gear. I know this because I park up against the plate glass windows at the dry cleaner and can clearly see the front of the vehicle. The DRL's go off when I put it in Park.

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

Exactly my DRLs go off in park also. We will see what happens when I pick my jeep up from service. They told me today that not only did they do the shifter recall but they also replaced THE ENTIRE SHIFTER 😳

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

I could have been mistaken but I was pretty sure they came on at startup originally??
I thought I remember them being on in park in front of windows and coming on at start up? Could be Senility though !

The LED DRLs on my 2015 Overland are only on when in gear.

Re: 2014 Front LED DRL not working...

FYI, on my 2016, my LED DRL's come at startup (in Park) and only turn off when parking brake is applied. Moving, stopped, P, R, N, D...they are always on. But as soon as you push the parking brake pedal down, they turn off (in Park, that is...haven't actually verified if they are off with park brake on and shifter in R or D).
