Default Any way to do daytime running lights with the LED signals on a 13/14?

I've done a search in this section but didn't come up with anything. Is there any way to make some amber daytime running lights with the front LED turn signals on my '14 1500 Sport?

To clarify, I think it would look good if you could just reverse what happens right now in stock configuration--turn signals on steady all the time (as a DRL), then flash off/on when signaling. I believe this is how my Trans Am and Corvette do except they are not LED like my new '14 Ram.

I have read this can be done at the dealer. I am picking mine up in a few hours and I have asked the dealer to have the DRLs enabled during the PDI. He said they are going to do it, but we shall see. I will post after I take delivery...

That's awesome! If you wouldn't mind, let me know if it works and exactly what I need to ask my dealer to do.

Thanks!

DRL's are law up here in Canuckland, and that's exactly how they work Get the dealer to activate your DRL's.

Well, SOB!

In all the excitement of picking it up I plumb forgot about the DRL's and of course it didn't get done. I will have to call the dealer tomorrow and stop by to get it done...

So I called my dealer and he doesn't know how this could have possibly happened. Uh huh.

Anyway, he is checking with the service manager. I asked him to confirm they know how to do it before I come in and have to wait 3 hours for them to bumble around the system.

I will try to get the details on where the setting is located if they will give it to me.

I will post when I have more.

I'm not real sure about the 8.4 on the Ram, but my wife has a '13 Charger, and if you go into your personal options there is an option for DRL.

I'd have to go out and look to specifically check which section/ menu to go into. I do know that it's there, and it's not hard to locate, as she turned 'em on, and I turned them off, then she turned them back on again LOL

good luck

Exco

Yeah, so I just got back from the dealer and "not equipped" is the answer I got. They got it hooked up to the computer and they found where they need to enable it, but the option is not available on my truck.

I also have seen the option in the EVIC on a 300 rental I had once, but that option is not in my EVIC on the truck. When I called the dealer, they confirmed that it is something that they have to enable, if the truck is equipped with it. They didn't know how you get a truck equipped with it as there is no option for DDL's anywhere they could find. They were very helpful with this and took a solid 20 min looking stuff up in the computer, so I tend to believe them.
