2013 & 14 DRL function

Good afternoon. I've just noticed that my LED style tri-bar front lights only come on with the parking lights, headlights or lock and unlock. I've seen other 2013 and 14s driving that they appear to be on all the time as a DRL. Is that the case and mine are just not activated in the computer? If so, is that a dealership item to enable or can I access a menu in my base model for that?
I know there's alot of people that don't care for them but I don't mind having that extra bit of conspicuity while driving a black car on mainly two lane mountain roads.

They are probably driving with their parking lights on then.

They should be on all the time if it's on auto. Unless you're stopped with you're e-brake up.

Ahh ha! I have a manual and when I checked, the car was running with parking brake on! Maybe I'm just a dumba$$ and they really are on.... Now I have to check when I can get outside!

Nah bro it's so confusing lol it took me like 20 mins of playing with my light switch and e-brake to figure out exactly what they're function is and when they come on and off. And when I installed my halos....forget about that 😂

In the photo is posted, I stopped, put the e brake on and turned on my parking lights to take the pic with them on. Then turned off my parking lights and switched to "auto lamps" they turned off. The e brake was on , so maybe that's why.

Should be why. Also note that when you're driving during the day with your lights on auto, the DRLs are a little brighter than with your headlights on. Just something else I noticed.
