    I have both a loaded Trailhawk (for me) and a loaded Limited (for wife). Her 'LED Signature' running lights are on when the engine is running, mine are not.

    Any ideas of where the setting is located?

    Thanks!

    I should add that the Settings in the 8.4 screen are the same.

    Welcome to the forum! Are your headlights set to "Auto"?

    Also check to see if the parking brake is on. If its on, the DRL's wont light.

    Chris, thanks for the reply. My wife's has them on while light switch is in "Automatic", so that should not be the issue.

    I stopped by the dealer to check on the license plates at lunch today, and they told me that Trailhawk's do not have this feature, and it is made to "look" like the Limited front lights....which is a big surprise to me. I am not sure I believe that, so I will wait until the wife comes home to confirm.

    Is your switch in Auto also? Fwiw, I thought I heard the same thing about the trailhawk version last time I was at the dealer.
