Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

I have a 2011 base laredo and my dealer did this for me for free. I told him I wanted DRL's and they went into the computer and just turned them on. They are only activated when not in "P". I like em. Especially in Florida where drivers are just as oblivious during the day as they are at night.

Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

Will having the DRL's on cause the bulb to burn out quicker? I'd also be interested in knowing if it turning this from USA to Canada affects any other part of the Jeep as someone else was wondering. Lastly, if someone who has the DRL turned on could chime in on whether the headlight dash light is illuminated when the DRLs are on I'd appreciate it!

Mine wasn't, but it could be different from Laredo to Limited.

Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

Any idea if this works the other way around? I've got a Laredo X with the All Weather Group and it came with DRL's, does that mean mine is already set to Canada?

Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

The All-Weather group comes with DRL's. So they are turned on in the computer from the factory. Personally, I think DRL's should be standard on all GC's.

Option Details - All Weather Capability Group
  • Low Beam Daytime Running Headlamps
  • Engine Block Heater
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Cargo Area Liner by Mopar®
  • Slush Mats by Mopar®
  • Quadra-Trac II® 4WD System
  • Remote Start (standard on Laredo X)Check state and local laws regarding use of remote start systems.
  • Selec-Terrain™ System
  • Tow Hooks

Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

Does anyone know if I can change this with the scanner tool or does it need to be taken to the dealer?

Also, has anyone done this to their 2012 GC?

Re: HOT HINT: DRL's on my 2011 Laredo for free

Switching the country code to Canada could effect warranty claims and even void the warranty I was told today at the dealer. They were able to enable them on my Laredo though without changing the country code and ensuring everything was still covered under warranty.
