    I seem to have an issue with the driver side daytime running light staying on dim during the car being off. Anyone knows why this happens? It's just the driver side.

    It's a software and hardware fix - Last month I refused delivery of a car with the same issue. The dealer said it is a known issue where lots of the new headlights have this issue and would take 2-3 months for them to swap out the lights and fix it. I opted for another car.

    The dealer should be able to fix it pretty easily - look at your DRL's when the car is on also and see if they are lighting properly on the car I refused they were only half lit up in the same pattern as yours.

    Range mode isn't on. No power saving options are turned on.

    I was lucky enough to fly on and off the Eisenhower a few times - I support our military and those serving however I can...

    My service ranger has ordered a new headlight for me and when it comes in, he will set up a time to change it at my house. it's a headlight assembly issue. he said probably a short in the new headlight.

    Update: faulty headlights. Both. Ranger service replaced both headlights today and we all good.
