Bulb &/or fuse blown possibly ?

You can turn them on and off in the menu.

Have a look in your manual, it gives you all that sort of information, all someone else is going to do is look at their manual, if you don't have a manual there is a downloads section on here where you can download a PDF copy

It isn't in the bl***y manual; I've just spent half an hour on elearn & it isn't anywhere obvious in there either .

What I have discovered is that the body computer controls each of the two DRL lines independently & will throw an error message if either of the bulbs are blown, so my advice to the OP would be to first check the bulbs.
Thanks 306maxi thanked for this post

Fair point. Just look for the blown fuse then I would also check whether the sidelights which are on the same bulb are working when the headlights are on.

Tis not in the manual, tis not on elearn so you're going to have to look through all the fuses and find out if there's a blown fuse.

Re: daytime running lights

Sift through 50 fuses or check 2 bulbs, I know which I'd be doing.

OK, so you expect me, some guy sitting in front of his computer in North Wales who isn't even wearing pants, to go and put some pants on, go out to my car and find out which fuse it is, then come back to my computer and tell you which one it is.

Why don't you (the guy who has the seemingly faulty car and is probably wearing pants) go out and do it yourself rather than expecting someone else to do the legwork for you?

Re: daytime running lights

This is laughable

It really does make me laugh how some manage to live without everything the do being spoon fed to them.
