The dome light switch can be used to override the daytime running lamps, by pushing it in and out twice. The drls are turned off and a bell notifies you. This can be done at any vehicle speed / gear. This dome light switch is similar in shape and size to the fog lamp switch right next to it, and at night while driving it is difficult to tell the difference which one is being pressed. The problem lies with the fact that at night when the car is started, the headlights come on automatically, how nice. However, if you hit the override switch twice the headlights go off leaving you in the dark, wherever you may be. It seems that the drls are not aware whether it is day or night. If you turn the headlight switch to on this does not happen.
