LED Lights on the Bumper 2014 GC SRT
 
I just got my car today, I cant figure out how to get the LED lights on the bumper to work, I checked the owners manual, searched here but I couldn't find the solution, so apologies if this has been discussed before, or if the solution is very obvious (i hope it is) here are two pics with the lights in different settings, I tried all three different light settings and fiddled the fog lights on and off and nothing ...

I checked in the menu, this is a pic of the lights settings which I suppose the drl option should be found in, and there is nothing to configure, maybe it's an export car thing? (Not sure how that works)

It's an export thing, i am in Australia and had same issue, only come on in drive. I know they are on when i can see them reflecting on the car in front of me at traffic lights.

what a bummer, export cars get robbed of remote start, the uConnect apps (except for the performance page), sirius radio AND ability to set the lights how you want :s

I guess I have to be thankful we got the same engine lol

On a related note, I don't understand why normal GC's enable the "halo" rings to be on with your daytime running lights, but SRT's do not.

Only way I have found to get the "halo" rings illuminated is either lights full on or parking lights on.

I think it has to do with some vehicle law that only allows one set of running lights on at a time. Having those on would give the SRT, two sets of running lights.

yep....the DRL's are actually the strips in the bumper. The LEDs in the headlights are more cool thing....lol

Me too. I understood the daytime driving lights would be the led's in the headlights but manual control on these seems the way to keep them on.

arg again.

Legally you can only have one set of DRL's lit. The SRT kept it's signature fascia mounted DRL and uses the headlamp LED as a position (park) lamp and the yellow LED as the turn lamp.

Also, BUX DRL's are only on in drive due to legal requirments in some export counties.
