: City Lights - when are they supposed to turn on?

I did several searches and poured over the owners manual, but I can't locate the answer to this.

When are the City Lights (the small round lights in the lower inboard corners of the headlamp assembly) supposed to turn on? I played around with the different light switch positions and couldn't get them to come on. I figured they would turn on with the parking lamps and stay on with the low or high beams, but that was not the case.

An SRX behind me in traffic this morning had low beams and city lamps on. This SRX did not have HID headlamps, and mine does - could that be the difference?

They come on with the low beams. Yours are most likely burned out. My driver side is burned out on my '07. It is just an aesthetic thing, I see no purpose for the lights.

To test them, They should flash when unlocking the doors with the key fob.

Thanks y'all. Mine definitely do not come on with the low beams or flash when the car is locked or unlocked.

I'll see about replacing the bulbs.
