    Thanks.
    joe6864 is in Canada and his country has mandated DRLs. You canít turn DRLs off there as itís against the law, of course itíd affect the insurance too.

    In US DRLs are not required by US DOT, the insurance doesnít care whether you turn your DRLs on or off. At least my insurance doesn't care.

    Interesting that it's not required in the US... I didn't know that!

    yep, the Feds do not require US cars to have DRLs. If US cars get/have DRLs, it is because the mfgr chose not to alter that part of the car from sister markets. Because there is no set standard, there is nothing specifying what bulbs constitute as a DRL and many makes do it in many different ways...

    Some use the low beam. Some use the high beam. Some use a dedicated DRL light. Some use LED marker lights. Some use the turn signal light. And some use light from Venus reflecting off of swamp gas...

    Thanks for posting those instructions. Although I just want the halo and accents lit -- I guess OFF will really mean OFF then.

    I did provide this type of feedback to all those surveys I've been getting with the car. Hopefully they look at them.

    There's kits in Japan that just lit halo as a DRL.

    Check DRL thread(s) as a member here has purchased and installed them

    Just did it and it works. This is on a 2017 CX-5 GT.

    OFF is now everything completely off regardless of speed.
    AUTO is same as before.
    PARKING LIGHTS now actually does light up just the halo and accents without the main headlight.
    HEADLIGHTS is same as before (full low beams).

    Because DRLs are mandatory in Canada and I donít believe Mazda would let you turn the DRLs off which is against the law.

    did it to my 2017 CX5 GT.

    off- everything off

    auto- everything off but headlights still comes on at night automatically.

    parking- just halos and tails. during the day i can see why the halos are not considered drls. they are barely noticeable because they are so dim.

    headlights- turns everything on.
