Re: Disable DRL's

I contacted my local dealer here in the city and they said they CAN disable DRLs on my 2013. Will be bringing it in this week.

I believe on the 2011-13 you could do it yourself by pulling a couple relays on the driver's side. I had ours shut off at the dealer last week.

Enable DLR's - Halo around headlamps

I'm new to the forum here and I've just purchased a 2014 JCG SRT two weeks. The issue that I'm having is I cannot get the daytime running headlights to function. By this, I mean the LED retangular halo around the headlamp. When I engage the "Turn on Daytime Running Headlights" option in the settings, only the bottom LEDs by the fog lights will come on (once I put the car in drive). However, I know the halo is suppose to come on also. I took it back to the dealership and they said they weren't suppose to come on, but I know that is not the case. On the drive SRT website, the head exterior designer explains how the new LED DRL's are the new signature look for the JCG top models.



So I had the dealership drive a 2014 Summit up next to my SRT and turn on the DRLs. BINGO! The Summit worked just fine. So now the service technician is saying they may have to hook up a laptop and install new software and call Chrysler to figure out what's going on. They tell me that they honestly don't know because the car is so new. Any ideas if they are on the right track here. Thanks all.

Re: Disable DRL's

Some dealers really don't know a whole lot about the '14s as they are still pretty new. Hell, the dealer I seriously considered buying at (until they didn't want to do a deal), the salesman didn't know a lot about it, either. He said he's usually Mr. Product Knowledge there as far as features, facts, etc. and he had no clue on a lot of stuff dealing with the '14s.

Sucks you're having issues, though. The SRT just looks mean with the LED DRL's

The SRT headlight LEDs dont turn on unless the parking lights or headlights are on. They are NOT drls. The bumper leds are the drls.

Re: Disable DRL's

I have a 2014 GC Limited, it has the DRL low beam, you can (and I have) disable them through the radio screen under settings. I have the 5.0 radio, go to settings and scroll down through and find lights, it gave me the option to turn them on or off. It might even fall under the safety menu screen (can't remember) but I shut them off because of how they look when the turn signal is turned on, that side shuts off and I think it looks stupid and appears as if you have a bulb out, other then that, they looked pretty cool actually. Wish there was a way to disable the shut off on turn signal feature. Hope this helps.

When I test drove a 14" GC summit, I was playing with the unconnect and notice that there was no option to turn drls off.. I know it's on American cars but doesn't seem to be available in Europe spec cars..

I know there is a eu law that states all new cars must come with drls.. But there are many new cars without any drls at all..

So my question is, is there a way to activate this within the menu?

2011-13, no need to pull anything.
Drive into your dealer, have them hook up the computer and go into the options. There's a setting to turn DRLs on or off.

Mine were off and I had my local dealer turn them on. Search for my posts, I put the info into one of the threads, but I can't remember how to do it now.

EDIT:
Found the thread
