Possible to turn Sportage DRLs off while engine is running?

5

Asked by Aug 19, 2015 at 05:32 PM about the 2012 Kia Sportage EX

Question type: General

I own a 2012 Kia Sportage EX which includes LED daytime running lights. I have been
unable to find a way to have the engine running without having any outside lights on at
all. The DRLs are always on when the engine is running unless you put it in parking
lights mode, but in that case the rear parking lights are on, glowing bright red. Is there
any possible way to turn off the DRLs (or all lights, really) while the engine is running?
I noticed this annoyance when I took it to a drive-in theater recently and wanted to run
the engine but couldn't do so without lighting up the people either in front of or behind
me.
