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 Once the turn signal is no
longer active, the DRL lamp will illuminate."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.

Hey dennis1234,

I am sorry to hear about your recent experience with your Grand Cherokee. After looking through the Uconnect manual, which can be accessed here: http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/ , I could not find a solution to your concern. I would advise you to bring your vehicle’s behavior to the attention of your FCA certified dealership.

I concur with OP for my '17 WK2 Limited. I know what they look like in PARK, but wondering what they look like in Drive or other shifts.

Funny this thread should bumped today. I noticed over the weekend that my DRLs are suddenly not on any more. They used to be, so I know they're supposed to be, and I also have it selected in Uconnect. They lights themselves work if I go through the positions on the selector, but the don't come on in Auto. This is in a 2016 Overland.

Same issue, only my lights didn't come stock. I was instructed that it has to be reprogrammed at the dealer.

I turned off the DRL's running at startup before I left the lot along with that annoying horn honk every time I lock the doors.

Ha, every vehicle I've gotten over the years the first setting I change is turning off the honk. Seems a little self-indulgent, particularly since I live in a condo complex and park within earshot of a lot of units. HEY I'M LOCKING / UNLOCKING MY VEHICLE OVER HERE!!! Flashing lights are sufficient, thanks.

The DRLs though...I've opted to keep those on. Granted, the improvement in visibility may be negligible on the flat, straight, sunny Phoenix roads I mostly traverse, but mine is a darker shade and we are unfortunately in an era of driver distraction so they stay on.
