daytime running lights

Could someone tell me if it is normal for my running light to go out on the same side when I turn on my turn signal.If I turn on my left turn signal my left daytime running light goes out until I turn the turn signal off then it comes back on . Is this normal or do I have a problem . Hope someone can help !! Thank you

Re: daytime running lights

Yes, it is normal. It is to improve visibility of the signal lamp to other drivers by removing the competing light source (running lamp).

Re: daytime running lights

The Audi LEDs do the same thing. I think it looks like crap, but I understand it's to improve visibility of the signal lamp to other drivers.

Yeah it's a tech solution to a problem created by the DRLs in the first place.

Re: daytime running lights

Yes its a great idea, Chrysler should be applauded, its a safety thing, why have 9 airbags and nothing else, as said earlier it stops the competing light from restricting others view of the indicator.
