DRLs have been legally required to be fitted at the front of all new EU cars and small vans since 2011,

You sure it's not the parking lamp you have activated ? Is the indicator switch in neutral position or left/ right when this happens ?

That is the way the parking lights usually work . If you get car scanned with Tech 3 or similar it should identify any faults as obvious suggestions appear not to be working .
