I don't think we are getting anywhere with this?

for some reason I thought it was a law that you had to have DRLs, I guess not.

it should just be a setting in the truck.

I did a Google search and came up with this:

Vehicles equipped with this option or manufactured for sale in Canada illuminate multiple Light-Emitting Diode (LED) units in both front lamp units when the engine is running, the parking brake is released and the exterior lamps are turned OFF. The BCM must be programmed appropriately for this feature to be enabled. Once enabled, anytime the BCM receives electronic messages over the CAN data bus from the PCM indicating the engine is running, a hard wired multiplex input from the headlamp switch indicating the status of the headlamp switch is OFF and a hard wired input from the park brake switch indicating that the parking brake is released, the BCM provides an output to the appropriate LED units to produce illumination. If a turn signal is activated while the DRL units are active, the DRL for the same side of the vehicle as the indicated turn is extinguished until the turn signal is cancelled to permit clear signal visibility.

The Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) are illuminated when the engine is started and the transmission is in any gear except park. The lights will illuminate at less then 50% of normal intensity. If the parking brake is applied, the DRL will turn OFF. Also, if a turn signal is activated, the DRL on the same side of the vehicle may turn off for the duration of the turn signal activation. Once that turn is completed and the turn signal depletes, the DRL lamp will illuminate once again.

Has anyone gotten the DRL to work yet?

We own a Dodge Challenger, and were having the same problem with it: we wanted DRL to be on all the time, but there was no setting for it. Dealer didn't seem to know how to do it. With the lights set to 'Auto' the Challenger would not have any lights on during the day.

Then I found directions on how to do it online. Took those to the dealer, and 20 minutes later I had DRL:




I don't know if those directions will work for the Ram, but it's worth a try. I haven't had a chance to have our dealer try it yet.

Directions (for the dealer tech) for the Challenger are:

Quote:
Activate DRL's on Challenger in United States.

You do not have to Change COUNTRY code (ie. Canada, Unites States, etc.) to do this. It is Not in the vehicle Prep Area. This is done in TIPM Programming Options.
With StarScan or newer StarMobile go into TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) setup.


Note: We can do this also for add on fog lamps on other models.

StarScan:
ECU View--->
TIPM/CGW --->
Misc Functions --->
Enable DRL - follow prompts.

Check the status of the DRL and see if its ENABLED. It is not listed as "Daytime Running Lights" but it is actually "DRL" in the scan tool. When vehicle is placed in gear and parking brake is in the OFF position, the DRL's will then automatically come on.

I just went to my dealer this morning and called 3 others. The dealer I went to actually took my truck back and told me he could do it, but it was the low beam lights that are my DRLs. Which is BS. The 3 dealers I called had no idea what I was talking about. Anyone figure this out yet???

No luck on my sport. The dealer changed it to a Canada model in the computer but there was no option that we could find to activate the DRLs. Any ideas?

If you read the directions for the Challenger, it says that changing the Country is not necessary. If that applies to Ram also, who knows?
