The inner lights do two things. They are "flash to pass" lights. They illuminate when you pull the turn signal stalk toward you. They do not stay on in that mode. They only illuminate while the stalk is pulled back.

They also function as the Daytime Running Lights, if your car is programmed to have them activated. The dealer does this programming. They light at a reduced intensity as DRLs.

Those are the ONLY two things those lights do. Your cars does not have coronas/angel eyes lights.
