My Focus was a Canadian Built model. It had the DRL's from the factory. I didnt like the feature. 1. my lights were on all the time. 2. my auto lights werent available due to lights being on all the time. 3. because they were on all the time, id hate to be sitting in a parking lot waiting for my wife and someone would think i was leaving when they saw my lights on and would sit and wait for me.


i had my technician at the dealership go in with the IDS and turn them off. We also had a technician who wanted his Focus to have them, so he turned them on with the IDS on his 2012.

It can and has been done both ways. It takes about 40 minutes to do. If a customer comes to my shop and asks me to do it, we will charge a half hour labor to do it.
