Any reason why you guys want to disable daytime running lamps? I can't see why...

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I just don't see the point. I don't like the look, and it's just a bulb to burn out quickly since they are on all the time. Just a personal thing I guess. I wonder long term what that will do tot he lens.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I've had DRLs on all my vehicles (five) since 1991. Never had a bulb burn out.
PS - Two of those vehicles were daily drivers, owned for more than 9 years each.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

Wish there were some way to add DLR's to mine. On the Ford SUV I traded, the dealer just programmed them on (all Ford's are built with DRL's for export purposes, mostly to Canada where DRL's are required). On Fords, the DRL's are not a separate bulb. I don't know if the GC can be flashed to turn them on or not? Or is it a separate bulb on the GC?

Read through this thread about turning them on.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

I would ask the dealer to switch mine to the Canada setting to enable the DRL's. Unfortunately, I don't read or speak Canadian...eh...

Actually, I have asked and none of our local dealers will do it (I could not get any of the local Ford dealers to do it on my Ford SUV either), and some say the Scan tool will not allow them to make that change to a vehicle purchased, owned and operated in the US.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee-how to disable DRL's

Been meaning to post this but kept forgetting, snapped a pic from my Laredo and I'm missing something compared to the other pic. Wonder of this fix only applies to vehicles with HID's as the DRL's for those vehicles are the high beams on mine. I did try pulling the fuses but DRL's were still on, any ideas?

hahahaha man I those damned smart cars too. When a friend and I was shopping for my 2012 Grand Cherokee we saw a used Fiat 500, we both about died laughing at the car. Said we could fold it up and stick in the cargo area of my WK. I see those little cars on the road and I think my god, if I was ever in an accident with one of things the passengers would have no chance. Instead of paying 17000 for a death trap such as the smart, why don't they just put a lawn mower motor on half a log and add some wheels to it?
