I've had my GV80 since the last week in December and I just realized that when you leave the headlights in the Automatic setting there's no Daytime Driving Lights on this vehicle, what gives? Am I missing something in the settings?

The article did mention the daytime driving lights but didn't elaborate on how to turn them on. I just assumed they would be on when the lights were set to Automatic but that wasn't the case today as I was outside the car with it running during the daytime and there weren't any daytime running lights on, strange.

I use my parking lights or headlights, depending on the situation. They will turn off when you shut off your car.

Yes, just leave your headlight switch on and when you turn the car on they'll come on and when you turn the car off they'll turn off after the delay (based on what you set it at) time is over. I'm just surprised there's no daytime driving light option on the GV80...

I've been going through the owner's manual and this is all I can find about the daytime running lights.

#3 Above is called "Position Lamp Position" , what does that mean?

The DRL System will turn the dedicated lamp OFF when: The parking brake is applied.
That may be why I didn't see the DRL. My driveway is on a slight incline and I had the car in Park (still running) so the Parking Brake was engaged. My next test will be to just have my wife behind the wheel in the driveway with her foot on the brake while the transmission is in the Drive position and I'll be able to see if the DRL will be on.
Thanks for the heads up on that! I'll let you know if that works!

I believe that the car has to be in DRIVE. Try it when parked facing a glass retail store window and you will see that they most likely come on in drive and go off in park.

Good idea, thank you. Either that or have someone sit in the car with their foot on the brake while in drive and observe from the outside if the driving lights come on.

Good idea! Window reflections are my favorite way to check all of my cars lighting functions. PS: I’m pretty sure those lights are on at all times when the ignition is on EXCEPT when in Park with the parking brake also set.

Does the Parking Brake always engage automatically when the transmission is in Park even on level ground or only when it detects the car is parked on a decline/incline?

No, not always - only when the car senses an incline.
