Hello All,
does anyone know if there is something I can do to "turn on" my headlights in a day time running light type of thing?

If your car is a 2014 or older which I’m guessing it is, that’s something that the dealer has to do for you. I just turn mine on manually every day same thing.

And it's not the headlights that are the DRLs it's the parking lights on bright like this . .

Hi slidd, are you saying that the parking lights are brighter when they are activated as DRL‘s?

You are absolutely right Slidd, I am actually turning on the parking lights. I like the orange glow up front like that!!

Yes they are brighter as DRL, the same brightness as when they flash to turn. That was the factory setup.

Ok but it will be brighter than just normal park and only the two orange parking lights will illuminate, all other lights will be off. Is that what you want?

Slidd, what was your experience like when you had them turned on? Short money, short time? Thanks

DRL functionality can only be enabled with a StarScan tool, which only the dealership service depts will have. It won't take them but a couple minutes to do it, but they may charge you up to an hour of diagnostic time to do it.

If you bundle it with some other service you are paying for, you may be able to get it done for free, but don't count on it being done gratis.

Yes I agree with Nuke, the dealer had to do mine (2014) and I had agreed to pay 1 hour of labor. I had googled and printed out the directions for them and wrote on it with a sharpie in big letters Parking Brake Must Be OFF yet somehow they missed that so after almost 2 hours of messing with it they came and told me they were sorry and couldn't get it to work so they were not going to charge me. But when they brought the car around there were the big orange DRLs shining bright so that's when I figured out they didn't read what I wrote about the parking brake. My car was an M6 and if you set the parking brake it will disable the DRL. The service writer was surprised to see this feature and said that was the first car they ever did, the techs came out to look too and they felt pretty bad about missing that on the directions. Oh well, they still didn't charge me so I got mine done for free.
