Does anyone know if there is a way to include the OEM halos to turn on when I switch to parking lights? (It’s currently just the fender lights)

So the halos are only on when the headlights are on? I wasn’t sure if the halos worked as DRL or not.

I'm currently away from mine and can't check, but isn't there a setting on the uconnect that turns the halos on and off? My halos are always on with the fender lights for drl mode, they stay lit during running light mode, and remain on with full headlights. The only time the halos aren't lit is if I remote start it. I've noticed that only the white fender lights and the rear lights are on until i hit the start button, then the halos light up and the rear goes dark.

I'm pretty sure the halos do come on for me when I turn on the parking lights.

On my seven inch, on the radio I go to settings, push the down arrow to the second screen, then click on lights for various choices. Maybe what you want is in there.

I honestly don’t know if there are halo settings in the UConnect. I see the DRL setting that can be turned off/on, but that only turns off the fender DRL. The Halos stay on.

If your Halos turn off when you turn on parking lights, then maybe you have a problem. In the video above, he turns on the parking lights at 2:00 to view the rear tail lights, then at 2:25 he shows the front parking lights on with both fender/side marker and halos on. At 3:13 he turns on the headlights and halos are on.

Actually it seems the Halos are always on. There was a forum member awhile back wanting to turn off the Halos but could not find a way.

I am assuming your JL was equipped with the LED option from the factory and you did not install take offs later which may require BCM programming by the dealer.
