Being in too dark of a location would turn on the headlights not just daytime running lights, which is what is in question.This shouldn't be a mystery. Just start the car in a darkened area(such as a garage at night), don't turn on the headlights, and see if they are on.
Not if its in the off position. The lights only come on automatically if you have it on the auto setting.
I THINK Aggie was saying that the brights and even dim lights would not come on if the light was turned to the off position since I stated testing it out in a garage could switch the headlights on.Not on my case. Mine is on the off position and the DRL eyebrow still lid up. You have to kneel down to see it clearly. I asked my brother and he agree that the eyebrow does lid up.
