Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Daytime running lamps

WARNING:

Always remember to turn on your headlamps at dusk or during inclement weather. The Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) system does not activate the tail lamps and generally may not provide adequate lighting during these conditions. Failure to activate your headlamps under these conditions may result in a collision.

The system turns the headlamps on with a reduced output.

To activate: • the ignition must be in the on position and

• the lighting control is in the off, autolamp, or parking lamp position and

• the transmission is not in PARK.
