DRL’s Off and On ?

Post by AceCar » Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:47 pm

Hi just taken delivery of new Kona Question about DRL’S. I’ve noticed that sometimes when coming to a stop the DRL’s have gone out. (Stop start was not active) I set off again and they come back. Stop again they stay on. Stop again there off again. I’m thinking something faulty.

What’s everyone else’s do ?

Thanks for replying.

As far as I've noticed mine stay on constantly, regardless of start stop, pretty sure they shouldn't be turning off at all whilst you are driving as long as they are set to on, this is the case with all my previous cars aswell. However if you've got air con on full power the radio on and charging your phone it may well have a setting that turns them off.

Just noticed mine do actually turn off when stationary and come on when the wheels start moving! So probably not a fault 👍🏼

Been in touch with Hyundai Tech.

DRL’s go out when the hand brake is applied. And come back on when releasing it.

What’s the point making them go out with hand brake on ? Very strange.

That's cleared that up then! Was trying to work out out today but couldn't quite nail it. Must be purely for battery preservation, start stop more likely to be active when handbrake is on.

Yes, Mine are off when Hand break on, but soon as you move they light up.
