I don't really care either way, it's pretty insignificant, but...if this were a safety issue and the concern is not being able to see the amber turn signal if your DRL is on, why not wink the headlight too? I would think the headlamp is much brighter than the LED DRL.

Re: 2014 LED DRL off when Signaling? Anyway to change it

I replaced my standard halogens for SRT bixenons using jeep_addicted's harness for my MY17 WK2 Limited. I notice during the day, some late model jeeps have only their LEDs running and not the HIDs. How are they doing that?

For those that came with the factory HID's there's a setting in U-Connect to turn the DRL's on-off.

Thanks. I have that setting, too, even though my jeep came with stock halogens. Turning off the DRLs in the setting will leave the LED halos on and just turn off the HIDs?

I'm just wanting the low beams off, and just the LEDs running.

On the factory HID setup, turning off the DRL's in U-Connect turns off the LED halos... as those are the DRL's, not the HID's. That's complete lights off. HID's and the DRL's come on when you turn the headlights on.

I'm not sure it will work like that when changing from factory halogen to factory HID. It may take some reprogramming by the dealer?

I turned off the DRL function in UConnect settings. When I switched the lights to auto, the LEDs and low beams were on. Switched to the OFF configuration, of course no lights were activated (but with DRLs on, the low beams would still be activated on this configuration). Switched to the PARKING LIGHT configuration, just the LEDs are activated. Lastly, switched to the FULL configuration, LEDs and LOW BEAMs are both activated. Again, this is all with the DRL option unchecked in UConnect settings. Even with a harness made from jeep_addicted, connected to bixenon headlights, I understand that the Jeep was programmed to control halogen headlight functions So that makes sense that it would need to be configured! Just to clarify, in stock bixenon headlights, the LEDs are constantly activated as the DRLs, and the HIDs only are activated in auto configuration when there is no visible sunlight or when the FULL configuration is selected, correct?

Yes.

LED halo's are on as DRL's when checked in U-Connect. HID's are off.

HID's and DRL's are on with any use of the headlights... manual or auto.

Your factory DRLs on a halogen headlight WK2 are the low beams at about half power. So you should have the setting turned off so you're not trying to half power your low beams. That's also why your Drl setting won't effect the led DRLs on the headlights
