I believe the DRL on the Sport is the same as my Platinum. The DRL are on the low beam LED headlights at reduced power. Are you sure that your Limited doesn't have the "configurable " DRL? Some Explorers have the option to turn DRL ON or OFF. Is your Explorer an 'Export' version or a U.S or Canadian Explorer?

I know nothing about Vietnam spec Explorers. US versions (at least in Platinum) have a LED ring and the configurable option to have headlight on in addition. Low & highbeam are both white LED.

The LED ring is called 'Signature' lighting and the low beam is LED while the high beam is halogen. In the 2018 they are both LED. As far as I know the lights on my Platinum are not configurable unless you use Forscan. The signature lights are on all the time. At least I haven't found that in the Manual.

Peter, you have way too much time on your hands to know this much and desire to correct every little inconsistency.

With the configurable option set to "On" in the cluster menu, you have to have the headlights in the Auto position for the DRL to work.

The above applies to non Canadian market Explorers as in Canada the DRL is not configurable since DRL is mandatory.

Is it possible to have only the LED strips active and NOT the low beam when the DRL's are activated? When I'm in park the LED strips stay lit and the low beams turn off. I would prefer to have it this way while in drive as well.

Turn off Daytime Lights in your IPC and it should behave precisely as you describe.

Don't the U.S. models have the option in the settings to turn DRL ON or OFF? If so, and you turn the setting to OFF, do the signature lights stay ON?

Signature lights are not affected by the IPC option. If you uncheck it, the low beam DRL stays off in any driving gear. The signature lights will stay lit.

I think that is what DanF861 was looking for. I think that would be a better option than reprogramming.

When i tried, whether it was in the IPC or not, checked or not, it did not work. Low beams still stayed on. ( in reference to the video to put park lamps on)

Thanks for the input on this. I will give it a try tomorrow. I read in some other threads that with the DRL turned OFF in settings and the lamps in AUTO that the signature LED strips won’t stay lit. But it sounds like they just might...

Until I get the BCM changed right, if ever, I can't even find a way to get those strips to turn off. :)

With that box unchecked, with headlamps in auto or OFF, those strips stay lit. Along with every other mode too...
