For those of you who have your Calibers, do you have either DRLs or Fog lamps or both? If you do not get the DRLs, do you use your fog lamps as DRLs?

I am wondering about the headlights in the Caliber.

In my Camry they are on all the time. When I open the car door, they go off.

Is the Caliber like this at all? With the headlights or fog lights?

The drl's will be the fog lamps if the car has them if not I think it's 60% of the high beam and I didn't see a option for a delayed headlamps or auto lamps what ever they are called

Katie,

I believe the DRL's light only the headlights not the fogs, but maybe I am wrong.

Not sure if they go off when the doors are open, or if they go off when the car is shut off, or if there is a delay.

I was probably not much help, but I tried LOL :D

It's in the States too, of the 7 I test drove, 3 had the option! It is a $40 USD option too, so why the hell not...:D

We need Dan to get this straight for us! Now I am curious on what the DRL's light up...

The DRL's in the Canadian models are the headlights not the fogs (I tested it out today) and they are on a delay of about 30 seconds after the car is off. I'm not sure if this is programmable (as the auto-locks are). Most cars have the DRL's as the headlights at about 60% intensity. Audi's are the only one's that I can think of off the top of my head that use the fogs as the DRL's.

Sinan, thats what I was thinking.

I still believe it is just the 60% high beams that are lit on the DRL's. I think that is the way most of Chryslers vehicles are set up, not the fogs. But would look cool IMO if it was just the fogs too.

Yeah, the fogs would look cool but the 60% is more practical I guess...ahh, I dunno, my head hurts now....:D:eek:

DRLs are the headlights. All Calibers have the ability to have them, as they all are able to have the headlights come on with the remote unlock and you can have them delay going out when you shut the engine down.

Is that configurable through the info display in the dash?

Yes, having the headlights come on with the remote and such is configurable.

But can you keep the dimed-headlights on while driving (without DRL option)?

I always drive with my headlights on (got used to it with my last car. The DRL were dimmed brights and people would get mad at me thinking I had my brights on so I merely turned the headlights on all the time). With the Caliber I turn the fogs on (you have to turn the parking lights on to be able to turn the fogs on).

DRL is simply the high beams on very low. No fog lamps involved.

fun fact: When you turn on your turn signal, that side's DRL turns itself off. The more you know...

Turn on your left turn signal, and the left headlight will go out. Same with the right side.

Very interesting, I understood, but making sure it wasn't a typo because I never heard of the before, or I just never noticed it.
