I just wanted to relate my experience in getting my 2014 DRLs turned on. I went to the dealer where I purchased the car they said no problem to turn on the DRLs. I waited for 2 hours only to have the service manger come out and tell me my car does not have driving lights and that they are physically not installed in the vehicle. He then shows me the build sheet for my car which has 2 items circled.
JBCAA - LESS DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS
JBWAA - LESS LIGHTING PACKAGES.
He says that means my car was built without the DRLs. I have looked at other 2014 fusions that have the DRLs enabled and the head lamps look identical and I count the same number of light bulbs. So could my car have been built without DRLs or is the Dealer wrong?
On your headlight switch is there an "Auto" setting? If so, set the switch to that and see what happens. My '15 has this and when in Park there is no illumination ... but put it in any gear position and I have DRL - low beams at about 60% power. Taillights wil not be lit however. Test it when in close range to a garage door ... or have someone simply stand where they can see if they come on.
Leaving the headlight switch at this setting will automatically turn on the headlights (to full power) AND taillights when the ambient outside light is at a low level. Sensor is that bubble thing in the dash center near the windshield base.
