    After the update on December 23, 2016. Version 8.0 (2.50.114), my parking lights (on the headlamps) will not come on after unlocking the car. Before the update they would come on. I have my settings on Auto for Parking/Headlights. I tried to reboot the car both the center console and driver console screens.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Do you have range mode turned on?

    Yes I do, that really might affect it? I'll try turning it off later and test it out.

    I am on 2.50.114 and my Parking Lights still come on upon unlock. It's always done this, and I'm not sure why, but they will turn off immediately upon opening the door.

    Range mode definitely turns off my DRLs. On mine always has, and I find it curious.

    Looks like it works when Range Mode is on, that doesn't make any sense though. It worked before the software update.

    Sorry correction, Range Mode has to be OFF for the parking lights to come on after unlocking the car.

    Could be a Canadian thing, but mine come on whether Range Mode is off or on. In Canada, the DRLs can never be turned off, Range Mode or not since their use is mandatory here.
