Default S-Cross Daytime Running Lights

Anybody know what is involved in hooking up the Daytime Driving Lights in a 2017 S-Cross Turbo?
For some reason they are not fitted to the latest Turbo models in Australia.
The earlier models of the S-Cross had them fitted across the range and the Vitara has them across the range but not this latest Turbo S-Cross.
Thanks.

Do you mean the LED position lights that were below the headlight? On the 2017 they moved to look like eyebrows over the indicators.

Yes – the lights are fitted to the car but don't come on automatically when driving during the day.
This feature has been removed from this latest version.
They must need some sort of module to be plugged in to make them work.

*subscribed.

Just noticed this with our S-Cross Prestige Turbo today. Light switch is set to "Auto", but DRL's not operating unless you turn the light switch to Park/Headlight.

Contrary to what sales guy said

No – you are not activating the DRL's. You are turning on the parking lights (or position lights as Suzuki call them) and the tail lights. The dash also dims.
This is not the same as the Daytime Running Lights which are no longer fitted to these two models.
Suzuki Australia tell you to contact your local service department.
I have asked several Perth Suzuki service departments and they don't know anything about them.
There must be some option to buy a relay or module to have them operate as in the previous model S-Cross.

Also own a 2017 S-Cross Presteige , under the impression when purchasing that the DRL's worked on the Presteige model as it has the led lights fitted. They don't, rang suzuki Au their fix was to manualy turn the headlights ON, not to auto on, as this only turns the headlights on in poor light conditions. NOT happy with their response! I then asked why the same model car in NZ and all other countries do have working DRL's, their response, don't know. I have since found out the fuse for the drl's is in place and has power to it. A mechanic suggested it could be a control module left out or possibly a setting in the body control module turned off. Need to find a suzuki mechanic to find out which it is. Hope someone can help

I wonder if the NZ ones actually have DRL. The NZ brochure for the S-Cross turbo mentions "LED position lights" whereas the Vitara does mention DRL. Usually DRL are brighter than position lights. The aftermarket Hella DRL can function as both as they can change brightness levels.

Still on the subject of lighting, how well do the LED projector headlamps work?

The Ignis and new 2017 Swift are supposed to have Daytime Running Lights but not mentioned in the specifications.
There are YouTube videos showing how to disable the DRL's on a couple of Suzuki vehicles.
One is for the Ignis:
The combination switch is used but it doesn't have the auto on headlights.
I couldn't get it to work.

Before i contacted suzuki AU checked suzuki NZ website early may late april s-cross specs listed led drl standard on presteige model. Checked NZ site today, spec sheet has been changed to led front position lights only not drl. Global suzuki site clearly states the front position led lights also act as drl's,they are much brighter than the front position lights when turned on, seems like suzuki AU & now NZ have this safety feature disabled for some reason, known only to them. The projector headlights are very good, definitley better than the halogen,which I must admit to my supprise are also pretty good. We were able to drive the s cross with halogen lights before we got the presteige
