Is it something that can be programmed thru the U-connect screen ?
I have seen an astonishing number of posts here and on the Charger Forum that mention the respective dealership service department making this mistake during a customer-requested DRL activation. That short-circuits my brain!This also caught the dealer techs who worked for almost 2 hours trying to get mine to work lol.
That was a 2014 that needed the dealer to turn on.

Here’s an anecdote to share at the dinner table this evening: I first saw/read your member name, @moparleo, in my email inbox from the notification email about the new thread, then I saw/read it again when I pulled up the thread last night to read through it, and then once more when I pulled it up again a bit ago to post my previous reply to @Slidd’s post.Is it something that can be programmed thru the U-connect screen ?
You have no idea how much I wish that were true. But it’s not...it can’t be. I cannot be forgiven for the things I think. To do so would be an affront to God himself!No need to apologize for what's in your head...
I can somewhat relate, although in the interest of full disclosure I will say I have gone over to the dark side now with respects to my preferred method of vehicle controls (mechanical versus computerized).Thank you guys for your help. This my first foray into modern computer electronics. I retired as a store manager from Firestone 10 years ago and didn't like the newer stuff then. I grew up in the 60's-70-s and did Everything myself( except bodywork). My newest other car is an 06 Magnum R/T. Want help on 60's-70-s Mopars and I am your man.
I have a Door hinge rebuilding service for the classic Mopars. I am well known in that field. google me there.
I hear ya...I agree on the engine management side it is no doubt performance heaven but on the computer fed sensor side of the other systems I still have my doubts as there is very little actual diagnostic work done any more. No one knows how. Just like you don't need to know much more than basic math as long as you have a electronic calculator or tablet. That was the biggest problem we (automotive repair businesses) had was finding a capable diagnostic technician who didn't just guess and throw parts at a problem until it was fixed. My latest case in point as a customer( a rare feeling as I always have done my own maintenance and repairs ) My 06 Magnum R/T suffered a valve train failure ( known defect with valve seats on 5.7 Gen III coming loose on the heads ). Purchased an updated reman 5.7 that required an authorized (by them) installation center to maintain their warranty. I had the engine installed and now had all of the brake system lights on. Brake, ABS, Traction control etc.. Installer spent 2 days trying to diagnose problem, no luck. Bit the bullet and did something that I always told my customers never to do, went to the dealer. Thinking (hoping) that they had a qualified diagnostic tech and Mopar specific tools for the job. I pulled the codes which were ABS codes but nothing more specific and told them the code numbers and what they read. I hoped they would actually diagnose the system especially for their $160.00 diagnostic charge. The next day they called and said that it needed a new abs module $600.00 and $300. to install. This was based on just pulling the codes, no diagnostic work. I paid and left. I found out one of my hinge customers had a good old school diagnostic tech who promised that he could find the problem in 2 hrs or less or n/c. Well 1 1/2 hrs later he tells me it turned out to be a blown $10.00 fuse in the abs system. Replaced it and no lights for 2 years now. It takes special people to do certain types of work. I am not an electronics guy. I had a saying posted on the wall in my shop that read " Do what you do, Don't do what you don't do" Words to live by.
