Hi, new here, DRL?

Hi, I'm new here and have a new C-Max Hybrid SEL and I'm impressed with the quality and the around 50m/gal. I have a question. My daylight running lights (DLR) don't work. And I think it's a safety thing and I would like to have it activated. I went to my Ford Service and they told me that they're waiting for a message from Ford about it. They don't want to use the Ford IDS-tool to mess up the C-Max computer. Does anyone have any experience with activating the DLR's or can give me a hint what to do? Thanks.

Funny experience since then. I had to go back to the dealer and they handed me the ford fax which said that they can't recommend switching it on. So they didn't do it even when the customer asked for it. The next dealer in Minneapolis MN told me that my vehicle is not equipped with DLR so they can't switch it on. The next dealer in St. Cloud, MN told me the same and added that he would like to install after market DLR's for $300. On my way to SC I visited a ford dealer in IA and it took him 10 minutes to switch the DRL's on. And he didn't charge me a cent. That tells you a little about MN-Ford dealers and that their customer relationship is much different from what they say in their ads. So - finally problem solved.
