Just watched a TV report about Calibers and some other Chrysler products.

In Canada all new cars are required to have running lights on during the day so my Caliber headlights are on when driving during daylight until I put a turnsignal on, at which point the headlight closest to the signal light turns off. This leaves one headlight and one signal light operating. As soon as the signal light goes off the headlight comes back on.

It does not happen at night when I turn the headlights on.

So if you see aCaliber winking at you during the day it is a Canadian eh!

Why would you have a dealer check it out,the rules in Canada state
that when a turn signal lamp is within 100mm of the DRL the DRL lamp
must be extinguished when the turn signal is activated.
Therefore as the Canadian law requires DRLs and the US doesn't
when US spec vehicles have the DRLs activated then your light
goes out.

Um maybe because every other car that comes to Canada is capable of having DRL working properly and not "blinking" when one changes lanes.

They are working properly!!!
The Canadian regs cover the cars sold here and the regs say DRLs go off
when 100mm distance is the issue.
The design runs to the regs. EH!!!!

guys, thats supposed to happen with the DRL's.. its a safety thing, they all do it when you put on the signal, it alternates with the blinker.
