    I have a refreshed front Model S, and from day 1 I've always had daytime running lights. Beginning this morning, I don't have them anymore. Anyone else experience this?

    Classic question for this, depending on your version: did range mode get turned on? First thing to check.

    For some reason, the 5 mW this saves is part of range more in some versions.

    You're not kidding !? Range mode affects DRL coming on.. ?!? Blimey.

    Turn your screen brightness down too I guess... save 10 more Watts.

    Not sure what the disagree is for.. in case it wasn't clear, I was referring to range mode turning off the DRL's.

    This is actually one of the reasons I keep range mode off, I like the look of the DRLs on better. And I suppose it's supposed to be safer too. *shrug*

    Don't think so, think before the current shot of my S it was an "eye" that I've used on other forums before. I don't remember exactly though.

    This only applies to the newer "refresh" S with the LED headlights. This doesn't apply to the older HID headlight assemblies.

    Range mode has no effect on my 2013 car's DRLs. Wonder why the new DRLs take up more energy or something?
