When the dealer does it via their computer hook up they will get a warning to check with local authorities to make sure its legal. Tell them that is for you to worry about. I had it done on my 2013 FX 4 that was made for the Middle East.
Clearly this is easier said than done. Did you not see the "Hotline Assistance Request" I posted 1 page back from my dealer? They tried to turn it on but without a procedure wasn't able to.
Attempted to turn DRL feature on. Ws able to access DRL function and turn on, interior lights blink and BCM 2100 code turn on. Performed module configuration , reset tire monitors, battery config reset, and CEI lockout configuration procedure done. Cleared code and retest. Light still blinks and code remains, perform module config but no change. Reinstall as-built data to get module configuration to go through, but DRL feature reverts back to original setting and not on.
Is there a step by step procedure for activating DRL? Perhaps I am missing a step? I only see a description in the workshop manual and not an actual procedure.
Users here keep saying you just go in and turn them on; but the reality is the technicians with the keyboard in their hands don't have a specific procedure available to them, and when they ask Ford for support are told to turn it off in the US. Would be great if [MENTION=47652]FordService[/MENTION] could officially comment on this!
