Configurable Daytime Running Lights on 2018 Ford EcoSport?

Recommended Posts

The Owner Manual indicates there is (2) Settings for DRL`s on the 2018 Ford EcoSport. Configurable, I'm assuming for US destined Vehicles where not mandated by Law and Non-Configurable which I assume is for Canadian destined Vehicles which are required by Law. Where is the Menu Setting for the "Configurable" DRL`s? When set in Headlight (on) Position or Automatic Headlight (on) the Headlights go on in both Neutral and in Drive an off while in Park. In Manual (on) position, both Headlamps an Tail Lamps are both on. In Auto (on) position, Headlights remain on an Tail Lights are (off) during daytime driving conditions. It appears that unlike most DRL`s, there is no difference in illumination between reduced DRL illumination an regular non-DRL illumination? Is that by design or part of the (configuration) that the Owners Manual is not clear on?

If they are configurable there should be an on/off menu option in the left hand menu in the instrument panel.

 

Configurable DRLs are an option in the US - usually on higher trim levels.

I think the fleet option is permanent DRLs not configurable DRLs. But it might vary by vehicle.

All US 2018 Ford EcoSports in "S" Trim have Configurable DRL`s. Not sure about the SE, SES, or Titanium Trim which come standard with "Projector" Headlamps & a LED Surround. Not sure if that is the DRL`s on those Models or are an additional to the Configurable DRL`s which operate the Headlamps at a slightly reduced power output? OPPS, just check the 2018 Ford EcoSport Packaging Guide an indeed the SE Trim Model has (both) the Configurable DRL`s which appears to activate the LED signature Headlamp Lighting. It appears the SES an Titanium Trim editions are equipped the same way.

I don't believe the Order Guide posted by ice capades makes no mention of a DRL Fleet Only Option. Just the Engine Core Block Heater limited to just a handful of Cold Weather States.

Just found the Configurable DRL`s option on the Extended Options Menu using the left side buttons on the Steering Wheel. They are set at least on the "S" Trim in (on) position from the Factory but can be disabled if desired.
