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

Hi,

I read it somewhere in the forum already but I am sure not many of you are aware of this.
I went to the dealer and told them to change the "car code" from US to Canada in order to activate the Daylight Running Lights ...and it worked.

^Laredo's don't come with working DRLs in the United States, but they do in Canada. It's a simple code that a dealer can change.

...what can I say, it works.

(and sorry for the typo in the titel. It's obviously "HINT" and not "HONT")

It should be since it's in the EVIC on the 300. I finally pulled my DRL fuses yesterday.

Is it only the dealer that can change the code from US to Canada? If not kow does one do it? I played around with my EVIC and did not see where to change it.

Thanks

Its usually a dealer thing. You need a scan tool to connect to the vehicle's data bus. Some members here with tech skills may have more info.

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

what else does it change on the jeep when switched to "Canada" mode? anyone have any info on this. and how much would a dealer charge to do this. sometimes they have fees if they have to plug in there machine to trouble shoot.
