What a useless...um..."feature". But many thanks are in order. At least I understand the way that works now. The switch has been moved from DRL to ON and will stay that way. I do think it's strange that the high-beams are unable to be permanently turned on, yet the switch will still allow them to work as long as it's pulled back and held in position. So technically you could "blind" someone during the day... It would make much more sense if the DLR mode of the switch bypassed the high-beam circuit altogether. ~jp Gary Fritz wrote: > DRL mode: lights always on, always low-beam.
