Is it confirmed the turn signal is DRL? There's three lower light positions so I'd think one of those is a white light DRL.
The three lower positions are headlights. The two outer reflectors are the low beam LEDs and the inside 3rd is the high beam LED. None of these are utilized as the DRL.

You can see in this picture the Amber DRLs are on:

There seems to be some confusion. In another post someone seems to think the DRLs are the parking lights. In this shot from a video on an XL prototype you can see the headlights operating as DRLs and no parking lights on. Of course this is a prototype

I found out about this in another thread. I hope I have found an aftermarket solution to this problem

This is likely, at least in the US DRLs are not a requirement like they are in Canada (which may also stipulate DRL being white?). My 2019 Ranger uses an amber light for DRL...not sure if it is the same one as the turn signal though...

Am i the only one thinking of using ford pass points to buy lariat headlights with led drl??
For those of us who are not familiar with it, would you explain Ford Pass function/cost, maybe how you use it (daily, weekly)
Thanks

They're just reward points you get from purchasing things like services at a Ford dealership. Relevant to Maverick buyers purchasing a new vehicle gets you 42,000 or the equivalent of $210 which you can spend on parts, accessories, or services.

Daytime running lights are configurable, meaning you can turn them on or off in the vehicle settings. They are most likely off on this vehicle. The Bronco Sport is set up this way as well.

Do you have to sign up for Ford Pass? If so, where do I go?

Create a Ford.com account and install the phone app. It's the same one that will allow you to do things like remote start the vehicle. About 10 days after you link your vehicle to your account you receive the points.
