Then I asked teh same the dealer deactivate the DRLs, and they said they wouldn't because it was considered modification to the vehicle. So I went to a competeing dealer, and the other dealer lost my business from here on out. Too bad, because the first dealer is where I bought the Jeep.
When I asked my dealer about the auto headlights, they said they activated everything that was disabled on my jeeps computer, so I guess the DRL was one of the options they activated, but I thought you had to have another relay or something to have DRL?

The DRLs are controlled by the computer to switch the relay for the headlights to the on position, but restrict the current flow to the lamps. Basically, it uses the existing headlight circuit, but it adjusts the voltage for DRLs. I don't know if they did activate my auto headlights because I never found the wiring for the sensor, thus, I decided I can just flip the switch. So I'm still not 100% certain that the auto lights require computer activation, or if the need a relay themselves.

Can the dealer program the mirrors or is it the mirrors that have this option?

the tilting of the mirrors only works on certain year jeeps... like 07-08 or something cause I took my 09 in there and they said that they couldn't do it..
