TIP: How to turn on DLR's Daylight Running Lamps to test operation:

I replaced the incandescent DRL's on my new 2SS/RS with 5000K LED assemblies from ebay, which have a polarity key, that matches the bulb socket so you cannot install them wrong.

Then I refered to the conditions outlined in the owners manual page 6-2, and the DRL's would not light up.

Owners Manual says:

Ignition in On/Run.
Lamp control knob in Auto.
Engine is Running.

No Dice for Automatic Transmission!


What DOES turn on the DRL's:

Engine Running.
Lamp control knob in Auto.
Parking Brake ON.
Shift to Neutral.

The Owners Manual may have been written with the manual transmission in mind.

Cost me an hour of searching the web for answers, so I hope this post will help someone else get through it faster.

For the Manual Transmission the DRLs come on when the E brake is released.

Same with the Automatic, however if you are by yourself, and you get out of the car to see if the lights are on...

My car started rolling when in neutral, so I added that one for safety.

I installed a set in a member's automatic car and they did not turn on until the tranny was put in drive. This was on a 2010 2SSRS.

correct....in rewiring mine, it was clear that they came on when you were ready to drive, meaning "D"....

I can usually see mine when pull up behind a car or truck with a shiney back end and look at the reflection of my car. Usually at a stop light.
