I'm new to the forum but have owned my 2016 Challenger Hellcat since it was new. I have an issue with the daytime running amber lights not coming on when driving. I have had this issue for quite a while now and don't want to take it to the Dodge service center so they can charge me a lot of money for something that's probably a pretty simple fix. I have rotated the switch for the headlamps in every position available and they still won't come on and don't see anything I could of possibly hit for them not to work. I know that they work because when I use the key fob to unlock the doors then they flash on. I didn't know if there could possibly be a blown fuse for this issue or not. I'm sure that there is probably some information in this forum where someone else may have had this issue but really don't have time to search through the thousands of threads. Any ideas you might have would be appreciated...thanks!

It's in the Uconnect, click on settings then lights then you you will see daytime running lights and either check or uncheck the box depending on what you want.

Leave your headlight switch alone as it has nothing to do with it. Either keep it in auto or off position.

Its funny because us Canadians have these lights on as standard and we can't turn them off. I hate that look. I had to get a tazer to turn them off.

The 2021 Canada cars have a new headlight switch to comply with a new law there. There's no off position on the new switch, just park, auto and on. And now when the DRL's are on, the tail lights will be on.

That fixed the issue...thank you!! Never thought about checking that because you actually had to go into the settings and check the box and I'm the only one that drives the car. The only other place it could of happened was when I had the oil changed at the dealership but have no idea why they would want to uncheck the box for the running lights. Thanks Again!

After being cut off across THREE LANES by some idiot, I run with all my lights on. It intimidates people out of my lane ahead of me. I've seen them about to change lanes but reflexively back off after they see headlights coming up their intended lane.

If I was on a motorbike, I may consider running lights (orange and red) that were about four times as bright as stock, but, I don't know.

Was the battery ever disconnected or replaced? I wonder if it defaults to that upon reconnection. Just a guess.
