DRLs are any lights on any vehicle that stay on during the day, thus DRL (daytime running light). They can be different lights for different cars and each manufacturer who does use them uses different styles and colors.

I will say though that the yellow DRLs are mostly out of style. Lots of new DRLs are the LED light bars just like the Jeep.

i was stating the concept kadonny, the DRL's as u said are the lights that stay on no matter what ( the old yellow lights ) but now in most ( not all ) cars are like the jeep.

but saying so doesnt support the fact that our DRL's ( led light bars ) are not ON ! during night !

Have you asked the dealer? It's been prove they stay on at night here in the US, so why not on the export models? Did you get an answer for that?

Re: How to turn ON the DRL LED's at night ?

since your dealer in UAE is slightly better than the one we have in KSA, why don't you ask them to change the programing of your car to a diffrente location . i don't know if it's clear or not but i'll give you an example

a guy who had a WK1 Srt8 told me that he dissabeld the seat belt chime & the 120KMH one by doing this at the dealer here in saudi arabia.

it won't hurt to ask

Re: How to turn ON the DRL LED's at night ?

many thanks guys for the definition DRL :P after talking to my SRT8 still wont let the DRL work at night

however now i am clear with the word DRL :P

i guess it is a program issue and since middle-east comes with different options i wouldnt think of DRL working for 2012 model but maybe 2013

Re: How to turn ON the DRL LED's at night ?

well i have checked and apparently, we do have a different program for a certain purpose.

anyway, he said its do-able but he needs the SRT to stay half a day there to re-program.

btw imagine they told me the antenna has a manefactural deffect of being to small?

it means it doesnt range out to the GPS i told him it was ok right till the moment of the TSB and hes like NO ur antenna is faulty and must be changed, chryco is sending us larger radius antenna...

We'll need pics of that larger antenna, all I can picture is this huge aircraft tower antenna strapped to the roof of the SRT

Re: How to turn ON the DRL LED's at night ?

i think having a DISH over the car is ridiculous !

we see on daily bases ppl with WK2's in the last 2 years with out any sort of problem here in the GCC.

haven't u consider getting the shark fin antenna ?
they say it doesn't effect the GPS, but you may loose a little strength in the AM/FM area.
and it looks waaaaay much cooler.

internal antenna, its within the car, the one above the car is apparently related to the radio.

hey man, as i stated to kadonny the one above the car is related only to the radio transmits and the one behind the dash is internal.
