Small Thing I like about the SRT

I notice all the time how the other JGC's LED light ring turns off with turn signal. The SRT doesn't. Why does the headlamp LED ring turn off on the other Jeeps when they signal?

The JGC LED ring is a daytime running light. They are designed to turn off when the signal is activated as to not to distract from the amber turn signal. The SRT LED light ring that you may have seen which does not deactivate is not standard and that person has installed an aftermarket wiring kit sold by a forum member here to keep that ring on. The SRT OEM daytime running light is a strip of LEDs below the headlight on the front bumper.

Re: Small Thing I like about the SRT

if you turn your light dial clockwise twice, the LED ring will not turn off with signal. I know this at least for SRT.

The LED ring turns on with the parking lights and/or headlights in the SRT, so it'll stay on with the turn signals.
What was said before is true as well, since the LED ring is the DRL for the other models, it turns off to keep from distracting.
I have the relay kit installed and prefer that setup myself.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Re: Small Thing I like about the SRT

What does the relay kit do for the SRT? Turn off the lower DRL LED strip and keep the LED ring around the headlamp on?

The relay kit keeps the headlight LED ring lit without having to have the headlights on and turned clockwise to clicks as you mentioned

Re: Small Thing I like about the SRT

Furthermore turning the parking lights on only illuminates the headlight LED dimly. The JGC LED is illuminated at full intensity when acting as a DRL during the day.

Re: Small Thing I like about the SRT

If I install the aftermarket harness will the LED ring be at full intensity?

Yes, check out this video of how it will work.
*flashing is the camera picking up the low intensity state of the DRL*
