So i collected my 2015 GT86 from RRG Salford Quays a week ago and i have noticed that over the past couple of days that the DRL's take about 2 minutes to come on after the engine has started.

Thats not right is it so i need to contact them to get it sorted.

Just checking, you're not sitting still for those 2 minute are you, maybe letting the engine run while defrosting or something? Because the DRLs only come on when you release the handbrake.

Thanks for this as i did not know that the DRL's only came on when the handbrake is released.

Just goes to show how helpful forum members like yourself can be.  Thumbs Up

No worries! Took me a couple of years to even notice it.

I'm not sure if it's even handbrake or the car has to move a little, but they don't come on while stationary.
