2013 GC Front RH LED DRL and Indicator Issue
 
Hi All,

While I dont have a JGC yet, god knows I am trying, I thought I would let you all know something a I have spotted twice now.

I spotted this again today and so twice makes that a problem.

I have noticed that a JGC when driving on the freeway the RHS DRL is off and the LHS is on, LHS indicator goes on and presto the RHS DRL comes on.

I have observed this thru my rear vision mirror so I may have my Left and Right mixed up, am I on drugs or has anyone else seen this ????

The Left DRL goes off when you indicate left and the right DRL goes off when you indicate right, is this what you are talking about?

You are probably not going crazy.

I definately saw a Compas where by the DRL turns OFF on the opposite side of when the indicators are ON - Someone screwed up the wiring on that one!

On another Compas, it was as per normal.

Hi there you are onto something my GC right headlight DRl intermittently does that and i really hate it... have to bring it up with the dealers but as i have had to change my DRL bulbs cause they were damaging the headlight lense, i take it they will just blame the new bulbs..

It happens on my MY12 GC also. I have seen several others do the same.
I have assumed that it is a design feature. The DRL needs to be off while the indicator is on to increase the visibility of the indicator - sort of a safety feature?

As much as I dont like they way it happens it's definitely a design "feature". As Brett said, to increase visability of the indicator.

I on't like that "design" feature either.
I'm thinking of ordering this kit.

In general, the GC DRL is shyte. Such a position like the old Volvo's of the 80's. They could have use LED's on the bumpers, instead of having an optional kit which CJD sell...
