You will find that on the highways and byways of your travels today, headlight use is often mandatory and can result in a fine if you fail to comply. The staff at Crouse Ford understands that busy drivers can sometimes be distracted by that running to-do list weighing on their minds.  With this feature, you won't have to remember to turn your headlights on every time you see that sign. Available on select Ford models, configurable daytime running lights are also an invaluable safety feature, making sure that you are visible to other drivers. Your Ford will take care of that for you, making sure you are always traveling safely. The professionals at your Ford dealership in MD are more than happy to explain this convenient option and demonstrate how simple they are to use.


There are multiple configurations available with your daytime running lights in your Ford F-150, Ford Escape, or Ford Explorer. These options allow you to override the automatic setting, in which your running lights remain activated.  You may choose to turn them off or to turn on your full headlights. This is easily accomplished by using the information display and the five-way control switch on the left side of your steering wheel. Scroll through settings, and select vehicle lighting. Then select the daytime running lights option. Crouse Ford wants your journey to be a safe one, so ask us about the select Ford models that can be equipped with this wonderful safety component today.
