Question type: Car Customization

Does anyone know if this can only be done using the Ford scan tool or can other brands of scan devices be used for reprogramming this feature? Such as a non dealership garage.  (Snap On or Mac brand tools?)

The Daytime Running lights are controlled by the smart junction box, The module is located under the dash. It is programmable with an IDS scanner via the OBDll connector. Go to exterior lighting then Daytime Running Lights ( DRL) and turn on or off this feature.

Thanks Jeff. Yes it has adaptive lights and I just came back from the dealership.... found out the drl can only be switched on or off. I was under the mistaken impression that the SJB could allow other lights ( park/hi beam or fog lights) to be activated instead of only low beam. I have now decided to purchase an aftermarket DRL kit and install it on the fog/driving lamps so I will have the daytime light feature required by law up here in Canada.

are you planning on selling the adaptive lights? Im considering buying spares.
