$125/hr is what my dealership charges. Whatever it's done with, I'm not dealing with them again, the 07 has no warranty, so eff you very much Lakehead Dodge.

I'm not sure what your "daylight running lights" function is myself. Couldn't you just turn on the parking lights or is it something different and why was it not working before if you needed it?

As to the charges, it's ridiculous to me, but then it isn't my business to run..I installed a set of fog lights on mine and they wanted $105 or so to turn 'em on with the scanner..I mean plug it in and hit "enable" on the programming switch..I passed..

I went home and used a couple of relays off of the wiring harness and made 'em all work via relay. I did install a toggle inside to keep them off in any occasion if I just don't want them on..Turn on parking lights and fogs light up, normal working with the headlights and hit the high beam and they go off..Took me about two hours to wire it all up. Cost me about $15..

I would assume you moved to ontario from the states? IE not an ontario car.

That is a crazy price for that for sure.

It's stuff like this why people don't use the dealerships more. They screw themselves if you ask me by raping customers for the smaller stuff.

I know the equipment costs the dealership money but they don't need to make it all back on me...lol

you shoulda got it done in the states, most of the time they'll do it for free or you can tip them 20 dollars. I was going to turn mine off for free but they were scared to do it.

She is from Ontario and brought the car up from the States. Daytime running lights are federal law in Canada and considered a part of the vehicle safety. As such, they must operate as part of the vehicles provincial safety inspection.

Oh, it's not just your dealership....that looks to be the standard labor charge for doing that. My parents had them activated on their '06 300C, and that's around what it cost them as well.

So no, it's not just that particular dealership.

Most of the programming is done with the star scan.
It cost me $48.00 with tax just to program and cut the key on my new key FOB.

The dealership wanted $152 and change + tax for the Key FOB alone.
I bought one on E-Bay for $63.00 and had some E-bay bucks: cost me: $47.00.

Unless it has to be done by the dealership, look elsewhere for a good mechanic.
