Can I turn on the Daytime Running Lights with Autel Maxisys? This vehicle is being imported into Canada and needs DRL. The Autel has a function to change country of origin which I did but this did not turn on the DRLs. Is there more to this process? Am I missing a step?

Thanks for any help.

It depends on the car, some require additional hardware for DRL to work all the time. AFAIK Canada does not allow DRLs that can be shut off by the driver. Look on a Jeep end user forum, or call a big Jeep dealer in Canada someone else may been there, done it.

With version 8.70 or higher, you have to go to CGW (Central gateway) and turn on the option DRL.

I have version 8.80 and could not find option to turn on DRL in CGW. There is a change country code function that I tried but it did not turn on DRLs.

According to the Autel website, it is possible to activate the DRL option. If I were you, I would contact Autel at … Regards.

I took it to the dealer and got it done. Sounded like they had to go through FCA and make the change on the VIN.
