I agree... it's one of the only things i'm going to miss about the escape... I'm actually afraid of it not being on the fiesta because i've gotten so use to not turning my headlights on.I wish they had released (like the European Fiesta) auto lights on feature when it turns to dusk!!!
That's funny going from a Cadillac DeVille to a Fiesta! Being a newbie, I'm sure that story is on here somewhere, eh?I'll "third" that coming from a Cadillac DeVille! I also want daytime running lights.
I've checked with the dealer, with Sam and the only way to get DLRs on the Fiesta is to turn on your parking lights or full headlights manually...a small disappointment to me.That's funny going from a Cadillac DeVille to a Fiesta! Being a newbie, I'm sure that story is on here somewhere, eh?
Have you checked with your dealer about the Daytime Running Lights? Since they are required in Canada, sometimes it's just a matter of "turning them on" with some programming changes.
Not sure what's required on Fiesta, because I'm still learning!
Yes, the SEL & SES have LED lights, however, they are not DRLs. No way to activate DRLs without adding a module that I know of (dealer is trying to find if a module can be ordered). If you want lights on in the daytime (or any other time) you need to physically turn them on.Which model do you have? The SEL sedans and SES hatches have the LED driving lights in the front bumper...
This might be something to do with the push button start. On my SE, I can turn the car off and the radio/bluetooth still stays on.I think another feature the car should have (as most other cars do) is the delay off for radio. What's bad about not having this feature is that it applies to SYNC as well. If you're on a phone call through SYNC and shut the car off, there goes your phone connection; you'll have to finish through your phone.
Interesting. Why does the 'keyed' ignition models have the delayed radio off feature and the keyless ignition do? It really comes down to a timer relay for this feature, doesn't it?I have an SES with the keyless ignition and I discovered that if you put it in Neutral (with an auto tranny) when you shut off the engine, the radio and Sync will stay on. Everything goes off when you put it into park. I don't know how the manual trans reacts.
In the automatic, if you press the start button w/o your foot on the break it will turn on in accessory mode and not start the engine.I have an SES with the keyless ignition and I discovered that if you put it in Neutral (with an auto tranny) when you shut off the engine, the radio and Sync will stay on.

I highly doubt it. There isn't a ignition switch for a key in mine so they would have to install the button, override the ignition switch, install the RF receiver (I'm guessing that is what the car uses to sense the key)Is it possible to have the dealer install push button start on a Fiesta that was bought without it?
