I mean the same picture as the banner of this website ( red SRT8 2012 )

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

well.. alot here have SRT's

and not one of them managed to have an answer...

hmmmm...

i took the initiative to search up the manual thanks to Scottina

and found out that LED's go on at night when you are NOT on parking

i think it means that i have to have the gear on DRIVE to have the lights on.

didnt try it yet

did any one have this inquiry

Yes, you are correct. The LED DRLs come on once you put the car in D when the headlights are not on.

the question here is,

is it possible for the LEDS to be ON when the headlights are ON as well?

well it does help... but the question is how do you know when they are ON

the manual claims that LEDS dont come on until your in the DRIVE

well.. i tried everything today and doesnt seem that it works. when the head lights are ON

but if you wana help me you can tell me when u have ur headlights on and the LEDS are dimmed

what light mode are you in ( the complete right one or the AUTO ? ).

For me it works for both Auto (when the sensor turns the headlights on) and all the way to the right setting. I wouldn't think this would be different on the export vehicle but maybe it is. That is something I know nothing about but maybe someone else does.
