Try applying parking brake
Dodge Rams are not equipped with Daytime running lights.. Although what you can do is turn on the parking lights and select just your fog lights (if equipped) otherwise to have running lights you will need to turn on your headlights. It's not a huge advantage to have running lights, because when the climates come that you need to turn on the headlights anyways, they aren't necessary.
parking lights are in the back of ur car and headlights ar in front of ur car
Those aren't headlights, they're considered running lights or parking lights. I believe that mercury calls this a Light Bar.
Not if headlights are reqired by law.
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
no, you may not, because ,driving with just your parking lights only( in place of your headlights) is against the law
I take it you have daytime running lights , if so by engaging the emergency / parking brake the daytime running lights should go off
In the older model Tundras, the running lights are the headlights, not the parking lights. If you open the hood, and look right behind the left headlight, there should be a grey wire with a bulky connector. It should be located right between the battery and the side wall of the truck. Simply disconnect the grey wire and the running lights should come on. You could buy a new daytime running light relay that just loops the circuit back to itself, but this works just the same.
The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.
The headlights work on a totally different relay than the parking and fog lights. The headlight relay or headlight fuse is usually blown when only the parking and fog lights work.
Yes. You would need to wire them up to your running lights.
Probably not. Many newer vehicles have a similar feature that allows certain lights, usually the daytime running lights (headlight switch is off, but headlights are on low intensity high beam) and related ones, to turn off when the parking brake is engaged. I suspect that you will find that your daytime running headlights do the same thing. It is simply the vehicle 'realising' that the parking brake is on and, therefore, the running lights are unneccessary.
If your car has daytime running lights (standard in Canada) then the only way to turn on just the parking lights is when the car is in park or neutral, the light switch is in the park light position and the parking brake is on. Then the headlights will turn off. Any other configuration means the headlights will be on. On this car, parking lights can truly only be used when parked!
with the key off, set the parking brake, that disables drl (daytime running lights). you can now turn the ign on and drl wont be on. you can now listen to radio etc w/o killing battery.
in the parking lights
In this order only. Turn engine off. Depress parking brake. Turn engine on. Lights will turn off. To turn lights back on relase parking brake.
Probably a fuse that has expired, change it.
No. The power to illuminate the Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) is supplied by the alternator, and does not have to be supplied by the battery. Once a vehicle is started and the engine is running you could remove the battery from the car entirely and everything requiring current would still operate.
Check the fuses. Parking lights/tailights/dash lights should be a common circuit Check the fuses. Parking lights/tailights/dash lights should be a common circuit I had the same problum last year and had to replace the wires.
If you are parked with the motor running, engage the parking/emergency brake. Turn the ignition off and restart the engine. The daytime running lights should not be on.
