DRL on 2012 Laredo's without package- is it possible?

I know someone had the dealer change the car code from USA to Canada and they worked but has anyone done this on their 2012 that doesn't already have the package? Also, does that change emissions setting or anything like that.

Today the dealer seemed convinced it couldn't be done.

Yeah I know, I was just wondering if anyone successfully did this on a 2012 because I know its been done on the 2011's. Would be nice to get the low beam light.

I would be shocked if the 2012 is any different than the 2011 in this regard...

I'm tending to agree with you. Going to see what the dealer says tomorrow, the service guy said he was going to have the mechanic call Jeeps technology people or something like that to see if it's possible and if so how it affects the rest of the vehicle.

If they can't do it I think I'll take it to another nearby dealer and ask them their opinion

Curious why you want this done? Not hating in any way, and I definitely see the safety benefit of this at times, but couldn't you just 'flip the switch'?

Re: DRL on 2012 Laredo's without package- is it possible?

I've had DRL's on all my previous vehicles, I guess I have just become used to having them for mainly the safety benefit. I could flip the switch but then it would turn the tail lights on as well wouldn't it? If that is possible, I guess it would just be more convenient to not have to turn it on every time.

Re: DRL on 2012 Laredo's without package- is it possible?

There should be no difference between the 2011/2012. Its a simple reprogram and when I imported mine to Canada the dealer in Minnesota did it for no charge. It does not affect any of the emission controls either. It is just a reprogram for the lights.

If anyone who has had this done wouldn't mind PMing me the dealer info they used because mine seems to think this cannot be done but were interested in figuring it out. They said they called Jeep and they said unless you have the option it can't be done, I still am of the belief that it can.
