I just had the dealer turn them on for me. That's the only way to get them turned on.

Dealer didn't charge me a dime. I bought the car new so having the keys and daytime running lights programmed was free.

i finally, got the dealer program my running daylights, but what a disappointment, it seems that the running day lights use the high beams and only at 1/2 voltage. Also they are not bi-xenon so it def sucks. Even even i wanted to replace the bulbs it would not solve the problem, because it would only use 1/2 voltage. Any1 has any any ideas how to fix this problem?

What are your trying to fix? - Do you want the daytime lamps brighter?

What were you expecting the daylight running lights to do? My dealer told me the daytime running lights are set at 60% of full power.

Everyone can see me when I'm driving which is the point of daytime running lights. Were you expecting the high beams to be on? You'd blind people in broad daylight doing that.

i was also going to try to get the xenisis xenon bulbs, but if the voltage is low, that would not work.
