The DRL control module is designed to automatically operate the exterior lights depending on the outside light conditions.
The DRL control module operates in the following 2 modes:
^ The day mode
In the day mode, the DRL ambient light sensor
senses daylight then the DRL control module activates the front turn lamps (non-flashing) under the following conditions:
- The ignition is in RUN.
- The headlamps are OFF.
- The park brake is OFF.
^ The night mode
In the night mode, the DRL ambient light sensor senses darkness turning off the front turn lamps and turning on the headlamps through CKT 10.
Also in the night mode, the DRL ambient light sensor activates the following lamps through CKT 9:
- The park lamps
- The side marker lamp
- The license lamps
- The tail lamp
- Voltage is also fed back through CKT 9 to the headlamp switch
assembly to control IP dimming.
