Daytime Running Lights

Howdy, we recently purchased a new 2016 RT Plus Shaker. We activated the DRL through options on the 8.4 head unit. At first they appeared as four white halos but now only the outer lights are white halos and the inner lights are amber/yellow parking lights. Any idea how to make them all halo's again?

The Halos are non adjustable. They will always be on when the car is started. Only the DRL's can be turned on of off.

I have the same issue with my new 2015 R/T Plus Shaker.

Right now only the inner/amber halos are on during the day but on my 2016 SXT I had the 4 Halos always running during the day.

If anyone could shed light on this it'd be great lol

Hi, I think that you only the two options. Either have the DRL on, or turn the DRL off to get all 4 halos to come on. Also if you have the 4 halos on, when you turn on the parking lights, they will dim a little bit.
Anyone correct me if I am wrong.

Sounds exactly right to me, to the OP just turn your Daytime Running Lights OFF and your 4 white halos will return. There is no way to turn the white halos off, they are on with ignition but with the DRLs (ambers) on, you can barely see the inner white halos on.

Turning off the DRL worked. All four halos are back on. Our RT Plus Shaker is white with black stripes, so IMHO the look of four white halos looks better than the DRL.

It's all personal preference. Myself, I'm not a "Halo Guy", so I'm stuck with them on, but they are dimmer than most, and that's fine with me.


I like the DRL's because I do a lot of "out in the country" driving, and live in a remote area. If folks don't see me coming with these on, then they are "blind", as the DRL's are BRIGHT.


Again, just personal preference, but I do like the looks of the DRL's on a Challenger.
