Can you turn off Porsche Day time Running lights in the USA?


Recommended Posts

Porsche specifies in the manual that you can turn off the Daytime running lights as long as you live in a country were they are not " mandatory".

I confirm that Daytime running lights are not mandatory in the USA so they should be be an option to turn them off in the porsche however I have never found a single person who has figured out how to do this including the mechanics at the dealer.

Does anyone if the daytime running lights can be disable in a Porsche car in the USA? Manual seem to indicate yes however in reality everyone is saying no.

My guess is that perhaps the USA Porsche are somehow incorrectly being labeled as a mandatory country or somehow being grouped in with Canada's porsche( In Canada they are Mandatory but in the USA they are not)

Here is some reference information:

The "Daytime Run. Lights" setting can only be changed when the vehicle is stationary or moving at walking speed.
The function is only available in countries where daytime running lights are not mandatory.

Setting the daytime running lights
If the "Daytime Run. Lights" function is active ( ), the dimmed headlights will always be switched on when the engine is running. This applies regardless of the light switch setting. The lighting for the instruments and switches is still switched on and off using the light switch regardless of the "Daytime Run. Lights" setting.

The "Daytime Run. Lights" setting can only be changed when the vehicle is stationary or moving at walking speed.
The function is only available in countries where daytime running lights are not mandatory.

Press the button.
Press the button or touch the tab of the same name in the header.
Select "Individual memory"
> "Light".
Select "Daytime Run. Lights" to activate ( ) or deactivate ( ) the function.

Daytime running lights are programmable using the PIWIS diagnostics system.  The reference you have is how they are set using the PIWIS.

Looks like the DRL relay/module supplies power to the running lights whenever the engine is running. You can probably just remove the relay/module (socket #6 and #7 in foot well kick panel) to disable this feature. However, not sure if the cluster will flag any errors but it's free to try and it's reversible :)
