on your steering wheel, you should have a button that says okay and has arrows. use the arrows to select the menu. then select headlights. then you can set the delay for up to 20 seconds or not at all. i just set mine for 20 seconds. mine used to be set for 0.

If you want DRLs there are several options out there, including modifying your fog lights to run of an ignition on power source so they will turn on/off with your ignition key. It is a minor wiring cut/reconnect but should be done carefully by someone who is knows how. You could get a Canadian Focus too - DRLs are required there.
incorrect sir. my car was equipped with DRL's. US built, but with Canadian setup as my car was previously a rental car. I had a technician at the Ford dealer I work at go into the BCM and turn the feature off. Took him about 40 minutes and my headlights are no longer on all the time.
