Question Drl - daytime running lights on constant

Hi my DRL's are constantly on.

I have a 09 GP

I've tried the menu on the right hand side of the steering wheel to turn them off but the option is missing.

How do i turn them off?

Thanks

D

Re: Drl - daytime running lights on constant

Didn't know a 09 plate gp would have DRLs, I have a 59 plate which hasn't got them, was it a optional extra on them.

Re: Drl - daytime running lights on constant

No its not an evo. There's a pir light sensor on the dashboard.
Why else would the lights be constantly on?

Re: Drl - daytime running lights on constant

I've got a 2009 16v GP. The lights only work via the stalk and haven't got any options for lights to be constantly on in the menu. I also have the dome thingy at the front of the dash but never knew what it was for!
Could be a wiring issue or they've been rewired to stay on or the stalk may be faulty.
Haven't got access to any fiat software at moment to check for anything in any hidden menus as my laptop has decided it doesn't want to play!!
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Re: Drl - daytime running lights on constant

Usually it's how you've said, using the menu button next to the steering wheel and it should be there as an option

It's the sun load sensor for the climate control, nothing to do with lights, if you have auto lights there is usually a sensor in the back of the rearview mirror up against the glass and usually goes hand in hand with auto wipers

Aaah that explains it then! My Starjet GP doesn't come with anything as fancy as climate control or auto lights/wipers! At least its less to go wrong!

I suspect in the last 3 months somebody will have figured it out..,

I saw all of this trying to reset the clock to BST - my marea gets a time signal from the radio.. saves lots of bother

"progress" eh..!!
