Default Does a 2009 PT Cruiser Have DRL?

Hi All,

New to the wonderful world of PT Cruiser...Just bought a 2009!!! : yahoo:

Is this car supposed to have Daylight Running Lights?

It is a California car and the Owners Manual says the DRL are automatically operated and it does not have any verbiage about DRLs being an option or accessory...It does discuss the requirements to get the DRLs to operate (engine running/headlight switch off/turn signals not operating) however they do not work.

The normal headlights, parking lights, and turn signals all work. I checked all of the mini fuses in the fuse panel under the hood.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

THANKS!!!

Welcome to the forum

Use this website to get the build sheet for your PT:

Dodge - Contact Us

On the left side click on:

Equipment Listing

then in the middle of the page in the white box enter your vehicle VIN

then Search

the DRL may be an option listed on your PT and may be a feature that the dealer can program to function.

You can go to the New Members section, create your own thread, tell us a little about yourself and your PT and post some pics of your PT when you get a chance.

The PT Cruiser in Canada have DRL's and possibly some other places but I don't believe the PT's made in Mexico for the U.S. have them. The owners manual might be generic and talks about things that are options on some of the models, like might talks about ABS but I don't have it.

I have seen some Gen2 PT's in my area driving around with DRL. It is the high beams that are on as the DRL.

Thank you all for the help.

So sadly it looks like DLRs were simply an option and I would have to pay a dealer to activate them.

THANKS AGAIN!!!
