So I’m having an issue getting my running lights to turn on? Any ideas? I’ve tried all the settings and can’t seem to get them on. Any ideas?

I now see you circled the 3 front center clearance lights in your photo, those are not part of the daytime running lights. I have found they only illuminate with parking or headlights on.

I’ve tried everything now. They definitely won’t turn in with anything I’m trying. I’m wondering if they aren’t wired? Or are missing something? Seems odd. My trx had no rear door led lights from the factory was wired for it though so you never know.

They should illuminate when you lock/unlock the vehicle. If not, then there's definitely an issue...

Quick update on the running lights. I took the Braptor in for service as I tried everything to get the three lights on the hood to work. Turns out that the factory literally forgot to plug the wiring harnesses together for those lights. It’s all fixed now but jeez come on ford.

Cool, I've wondered what the status was, good to hear it was a plug & play fix.

Yeah I’m glad as well. I just love this thing more and more the more I drive it. I have had a bunch of very nice cars and trucks and this thing is just so cool. It drives at 80mph on the freeway better then almost every car I have ever owned. Pretty amazing actually what Ford has come up with here. Planted is the word I would use to describe the truck on the freeway. Different vehicles obviously but my 2 TRX,m5c, and x5mc drive no where near as straight with wind, road grooves, drainage, etc on the road. Thinking it might be the big tires? Not sure. Very cool though and very happy now that my lights are fixed!

Had the exact same issue. Hard to wrap my head around how a vehicle leaves the Ford plant "inspection" without them noticing all the lights aren't working. That part is mind blowing.

Linking to @Obiwan 's thread below with the same issue that includes resolution photo's of disconnected wiring harness.
