2018 mkc reserve drl/headlights problem.

Hello. I recently purchased a 2018 mkc reserve. It's the top trim you can get in Canada. I noticed that in order to run my day time running lamps which I would have called fog lights since my last vehicle was a truck. My question is their a way to run my day time running lamps and my headlamps at the same time at all times without having to turn light switch off of auto? When my nighttime lights come on my day time running lamps won't come on. Only way I've seen to turn on my day time running lamps is to manually turn the light switch to have lights in which is a problem because if I forgot their on and shut off the vehicle that would kill the battery. Is their a way to have your day time running lamps come at the same time as your headlights in the auto headlights setting on the dial? Ill attach a few images to give you an idea of what I mean.

Other image of light dial that you can't press in on which on most vehicles turns on the fog lights.

In the US the Fogs (DRLs) are on all the time regardless of the headlights being on - This is probably a Canada thing. We can configure it in the setup (left steering wheel button)

Thanks for reply. Yeah must be a Canada thing. I went into settings on steering wheel and then lighting and no option to run drls. Must come on automatically when needed I guess.

I really like the idea of DRL's. With my light switch in the auto position, the lights don't always come on when needed (cloudy days, overcast, light rain etc.). The DRL's are on all the time, but not the taillights. I wish the taillights were on when the DRL's are.
