Daytime running lights

Just wondering, do all 2013 pathfinders have daytime running lights?

I seem to have it. But I can seem to find replacement bulbs for it. Any ideas?

I don't believe the US models do.

Hmmm, really? So, if you have the headlight switch in the "OFF" position, you still have lights on?

I see a light that is with in the highbeam housing that is on when I have not turn on the head lights. It is a small bulb that is directly below the high beam headlight bulb .

Strange do you guys see this bulb there?

I think you're referring to the parking lights (AKA four ways). Do the tail lights illuminate when in this state?

The only reason I say that US models don't have them is this excerpt from the manual:

DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT SYSTEM (Canada only)
The daytime running lights automatically illumi- nate when the engine is started with the parking brake released. The daytime running lights oper- ate with the headlight switch in the OFF position or in the position. Turn the headlight switch to the position for full illumination when driving at night.

Ah, you are correct. It is off when I have all the lights off. That is the parking / corner light.

Any idea on how to change it? I want to replace it with some led bulb

You are going to have one pimpy miniva..... errr... I mean, crossover.

According to the manual, they are bulb type "W5W" and have a 5W rating:

The daytime running lights in the Canadian version are actually the fog lights.

It's a shame that Nissan doesn't do DRLs in the US. I got used to having them and actually think they helped get other drivers' attention. Anyone know what relays or wiring are needed to enable them on the US version?

I agree CWA, should be a standard safety option anymore with vehicles. I know some would complain that they'll have to replace light bulbs more often but in the long run I think the safety of DRL's outweighs that issue to me.
