Hmmm, are you sure your parking lights are not ON when you are in movement ? Because in mine, they are on ! The same goes for the red lights. And it is the same to all Canadian Focus 2012+ equiped with DRL (as far as I know). Ford really screwed up DRL in this vehicle, starting with the fact that the headlight indicator is on all the time. But yes, the Auto light works.

P.S. Tomorrow I'll go to my dealers' shop to change the front left assembly --> the plastic “melted” exactly because of the parking lights being always on (see picture). The change is covered by the warranty, though.

P.S. Sorry for the quality of the photo (iPod 4G used). But you can see the "blurred" zone right above the parking lights.
