The daytime running lights (DRL) feature keeps your lights on even during the daytime, to act as a safety precaution. You do not have to activate this feature; the lights will automatically turn on when you turn on your vehicle. The lights will turn off anytime you put the car in park (if it is an automatic transmission), or apply the parking brake.
