Sure, after you do it manually? What does this feature actually do?

Hi all - need help with DRLs. I have a 22 Classic with the factory projectors. I have my settings set as outlined in post #7079 to no avail. I have even tried Canadian mode as well as setting for turn signal as location but with no luck. I have been checking to see if it is working with the truck running, in drive. I do have the security bypass module installed. For whatever reason when I select MY2022 in AlfaOBD it comes up for the 13-17 option by default when I hit connect. Is that normal?

One other weird thing I noticed - these two settings do not appear in AlfaOBD:
CBC I/O right dedicated DRL lamp output present> yes
CBC I/O left dedicated DRL lamp output present > yes

Is it possible these were for an older version? Or only applicable for older model year(s)? My CBC settings for DRL reference auto-level and other such things that I do not see mentioned elsewhere. Any help is appreciated!

It's fairly normal, as it negotiates a protocol and identifier. My '09 1500 detects as a "SOHS" engine (likely an app typo) for the ECU, even when selecting the hemi option.

I'm unsure if the app limits visibility to functions based on the selected ECU. If I try and activate a function my vehicle isn't equipped with, it simply lets me know when I try to run the test.

I just did the drl on my 16 2500 with projector lights. Is there a way to get the drl’s to come on with the switch in auto and stay on when the headlights turn on ? Mine only run when the light switch is in the off position .

Thanks !

Followed the programming FOBIK walkthrough using Alpha OBD, seemed to be successful, Locks, Unlocks, remote start works, but the second I put the key in the ignition the engine turns off, I can turn the key and restart it with no issues. Tried to search but no luck, any possible ideas? Thank you,

I would say that’s normal because even though your truck was built in 2022, it’s still using 2013-2017(2018) parts because it’s still a 4th-Gen truck so what I would do unless somebody corrects me is every time you use alpha OBD, make sure that whenever you connect it to your truck, tell it you have a 2018 Ram 1500 DS/DX.

For the rest of the tutorial, I’ll refer you to a YouTube video"]made by one of our members here, @big daddys house.[/URL]

the CBC I/O options are for setting the Input / OUTPUT on the BCM and that feature would be for dedicated DRLs like on Chargers - A light that is ONLY for DRL and NOT wired in on USDM trucks as far as I know in Canada the HIGH LINE projector headlights use the dedicated DRL for lighting the LED turn lights but the base "quad" lighting they use the high beams dimmed down
on my 2014 I programmed to the turn lights NOT the headlights and I have the basic "quad" headlights and DO NOT have the dedicated DRL wired to anything
