Daytime running lights (DRL) are an automatic system that turn on when the vehicle is turned on and in motion.
The DRL indicator light means that the daytime running lights are ON and operating properly.
When the headlights are turned on, the DRL indicator light should turn off.
Are DRL the same as low beam?
Many vehicles will have Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as to light up at day time. But some of us do not know the difference between DRL, high beam and low beam. The daytime running light is implemented by operating low beam or fog lights at a full or reduced intensity or by operating high beam at 50% normal intensity.
Can daytime running lights be turned off?
Please remember, daytime running lights (DRL) are a safety feature that can help make it easier for others to see the front of your vehicle during the day. If your vehicle is equipped with a “DRL OFF” setting, they can be turned off by twisting the headlight control knob to “DRL OFF.”
Do DRL stay on at night?
Basically, daytime running lights, or (DRL) as they may be listed, are your vehicle’s low beam headlights that are on during daytime driving. Usually the lights will run at a lower power setting than when your headlights are on for night driving.
