Because dealers for the most part don't know s about their own cars and they'll just tell you whatever pops into their head that they think sounds good under the assumption that customers don't know crap. Ironically, customers often know more about the car than the salesman does. I've actually heard of a salesman on a Jeep lot who was looking under the dash of a Jeep Wrangler for the hood release.

In the Focus the lights are activated by a rotating knob that has three positions. Position 1 is amber running lights (parking lights). Postion 2 turns on the head lamps and position 3 is daytime running lamps. If you have fog lights they are activated by small button next to the headlamp knob.

You can see the headlamp knob in the lower left of the dash. It has four lighted positions. Off, parking lights, headlamps and finally daytime running lamps. It's factory.
