    Have you checked the fuse, the bulb(s), the bulb connection?

    Some people don't like them and have been known to just unplug them. I haven't seen that here but on another forum I am a member of, owners often just disconnect them.

    Haven't checked those specifically- I'm pretty sure they're good. Is the correct process to re-enable them to hold the headlamp switch (I think all the way to the left) until they come back on?

    I've got an '06 and I didn't know you could turn DRLs off.

    You know you've got to be in gear for them to come on, right?

    I believe just momentary to the left, the same way to disable, enables them, in drive with the drl's on

    That is unless the bulbs are blown which makes me glad I switched to LEDs for the drl's
