Default Question for those with factory DRLs - 3rd March 2015, 10:24 PM

Just had my 2011 fJCW upgraded with LED DRLs. Everything seems ok but, with the old side lights, when unlocking the car with the remote, the side lights and tail lights would come on, this no longer happens!

Is this a feature of the DRLs, or do I need to go back to the dealer?

They only come on when unlocking if you leave your lights in the auto or on position - obviously if you leave your lights in the on position though, your DRL's won't come on as your headlights will be on instead, and the DRL will only light the top half (side light)

That'll be it then - always used to leave my lights on in lieu of having DRLs. Now I turn them off I'm seeing stuff I've not seen before.

Thanks for your help.

You could always code them to come on as welcome lights
