you might check with a dealer, but according to a TSB from mercedes, it doesn't sound like they can be activated, only were on cars sold in canada, since the way they are done is not legal in the U.S.

So... install an aftermarket DRL kit, there are several available. Here is where I got mine. Sure wish with all the safety emphasis Mercedes has that they would have had DRL on U.S. cars.

Use instrument cluster display and scroll through the menus to learn how to turn on DRLs. It's in owners manual.
