Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)

On vehicles equipped with DRL, the low-beam headlamps come on in daylight when all the following conditions are met:

  • The engine is running,
  • The exterior lamp control is in AUTO, and
  • The light sensor determines it is daytime.

Fully functional DRL are required on all vehicles first sold in Canada.

When the DRL are on, the low-beam headlamps will be on.

The taillamps, sidemarker lamps, instrument panel lights, and other lamps will not be on.

When the exterior lamp control is turned to the headlamp position, the regular headlamps will come on.

The other lamps that come on with the headlamps will also come on.

When the headlamps are turned off, the regular lamps also turn off, and the low-beam headlamps turn on.

The regular headlamp system should be used when needed.
