      Drive-In Turn off the daytime driving lights

      Troubles at the drive in.

      Most cars to turn off the day time driving lights you just put on the emergency brake and turn the lights off and the daytime driving lights don't turn back on till the emergency brake is turned off. I can't seem to get this to work on the Volvo XC90 (2019 model T8 Hybrid Model).

      Is there a trick that anyone has learned? What mode do I need to be in.

      Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
      The car monitors ambient lighting conditions. With the ring on the left-side steering wheel
      lever in the AUTO position and the ignition in mode
      II (or the engine running), the lights toggle
      automatically between DRL and low beam headlights.
      Ring in the AUTO position.
      NOTE
      Volvo recommends the use of Daytime Running Lights in the United States. The use of
      these lights is mandatory in Canada.
      With the lighting ring in the 0 position:
      in the US: DRL will be off. In Canada: DRL will be on With the lighting ring in the 8 position
      and the ignition in mode II or if the engine isrunning In the US: DRL will be off
      In Canada: DRL will be on With the lighting ring in the position: DRL will be on (the low beam headlights will
      automatically switch on in dark conditions) US models only

      DRL can be deactivated in the center display's Settings view.
      With selected, a tunnel detection function activates the low beams when the vehicle enters
      a tunnel.
      With the lighting ring in the position: DRL will be off and the low beam headlights
      will be on


      You will find this information in the owners' manual. It would not copy some of the graphics.

      On my 2017 T8, all lights including the DRLs are off when the light switch is in the off position. The DRLs are on in the auto position.

      Forgot to mention I am super safe Canada where we have daytime driving lights by default. Except on every vehicle the emergency brake on will defeat the daytime driving lights (except my Volvo).

      Any Canucks who go to drive-ins figure this out.
