Question 2014 GC Daytime Running Lights not on during daytime

Hi JeepForum.

This is my first post here. I've tried to do some digging around the forum, but could not get much info.

I just picked up a 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited with LuxII package. I noticed that during the day my LED DRL's do not light up. I have the setting in UConnect for DRL's selected.

I can only get the DRL's to come on by putting the light knob in the parking light mode, or if the Low beams are on. Other then that, the DRL's do not automatically turn on during the day.

I would think that since these are Daytime Running Lights, they should always be on automatically.

Am I missing something? Please do point me in the right direction, and THANKS in advance!

They'll only be on when the car is in gear. I think the lights may need to be set to Auto as well.

From the OM:

"Daytime Running Lights — If Equipped
The Daytime Running Lights (low intensity) come on
whenever the engine is running, and the transmission is
not in the PARK position. The lights will remain on until
the ignition is switched to the OFF or ACC position or the
parking brake is engaged.
NOTE: If a turn signal is activated, the DRL lamp on the
same side of the vehicle will turn off for the duration of
the turn signal activation. Once the turn signal is no
longer active, the DRL lamp will illuminate."

Thanks for the info! Much appreciated. I thought I would have to make a trip to the dealer.

If your vehicle is equipped with remote start, the DRLs do come on when you remote start it.
