So, does the Sport NOT have the LED DRLs? You know, the ones that are like the "eyebrows" that wrap around above the headlights. All I ever see on are the two kinda weak amber lights by the grille.

Easily fixed with a simple bulb change, NO it isn't technically legal, but my DRL's aren't as bright as my low beams, These led's dim , and my high beam performance is far better than stock.No flickering, no errors. Just buy them direct, ask for a discount, you'll have them in 2 or 3 days, much better than Amazon! no more pee yellow lights for me (LOL).

These two threads might help out. You will need to purchase the PWM drivers since the LED's might flicker when the power is reduced for the DRL.

The brochure for the Canadian Sport claims it has LED DRLs, but I haven't actually gotten in front of mine when it's running and in gear to see what they look like.

Unlike some vehicles, the Ridgeline doesn't need to be in gear for the DRL's to come on.

If the headlights and parking brake are off, the DRL's come on when the "ignition" is "on". The engine doesn't even have to be running.

Since I don't particularly like the "yellowish" DRLs on my 2021 Sport either, I simply leave my headlight switch "ON", and have nice white light at the front of the truck !

Since I'm driving a gray vehicle during a summer plagued by wildfire smoke, I think I'll keep my DRLs, thankyouverymuch. They really help seeing certain vehicles under some conditions of so-so visibility.

I also don't understand people who won't turn on their headlights at dusk, especially if they're driving small gray vehicles. "I can see! I don't need headlights!"

My 2021 Sport is wired for the eyebrows and the LED strip appears to be be inside. I am trying to find out how to activate them, it is more then just adding a fuse. I have a feeling a relay needs to be added in the interior fuse box but I cannot fine a wiring diagram on line.

That sounds interesting and maybe hopeful. Looking forward to hearing the results from your research.

The headlight part numbers for the Sport and RTL-E are not identical. I doubt the Sport headlights have the LED strips for the DRLs.

@VJB Any success with this?

How do you know it's wired for LED DRL's and how do you know there are LED's inside the headlight assembly? Honda says only the RTL-E and BE have LED DRL's and the headlights are different part numbers than the Sport and RTL.

LOL Honda also "says" my RTL did not come equipped with auto high beams, a ratcheting passenger armrest, and a conversation mirror - yet here we are... 😉

My '21 RTL did not include the ratcheting passenger armrest. Only the driver's armrest ratchets on mine.

My 21 Sport doesn't have the led eyebrows in it? I wish it did, but how would you deactivate the DRL to connect it to the eyebrows? Major wiring will have to be done, it has to be more than a fuse.
