I meant the 'lights on' icon being a Canadian thing. I don't believe there is any law, in Ontario at least, that requires lights to be on with wipers. Canadian vehicles require daytime running lights though - have for years and years. I don't know for the life of me why it isn't mandatory in the US.SnowItch said:I think it is a Canadian thing. I've never noticed it happening with mine (U.S.), but I'll definitely pay close attention tomorrow (its supposed to rain). Hopefully, it will be light enough that the lights don't come on automatically. Add to that the poster who stated earlier that their lights didn't come on when it was bright and raining, leads me to believe it is a Canadian thing.
Now that you mention it, I do believe I remember reading that it is a Canadian law to have headlights on when the windshield wipers are on. Is that true? If so, that may explain why some people have the feature and others don't.
FYI Canadian manual is Part No. 25798563 A First Printing. I don't see a mention of this feature anywhere in the manual.SnowItch said:Interesting. Do you happen to know if there is a different owner's manual for the Canadian versions? If there is, can you check if that feature is documented?
Reason I ask is I'm trying to put together a document on Owner's Manual corrections, omissions and clarifications, and I'd like to include this issue.
Yep, that is correct answer.sjhanlon said:BTW - when I turn the wipers on the Green "Lights On" incon turns on... but the Red DIC area does not DIM. When the lights turn on because it is getting dark out the DIC dims a bit and the Nav turns to night mode (I have it set that way). Neither of these happens when the lights activate because of the wipers.
My manual seems to be for both Canada and the US... the front cover has the website for gmc.com (U.S.) and gmc.gm.ca (Canada). But nothing in the manual about this feature that I could find.
