When my Sunfire had this problem, the cause was a burned out high-beam section of the left headlight. It appears that in the daytime running light mode, the high-beam sections are connected in series and if one burns out, they both go out. (Just like XMAS lights) I found this by turning on the headlights and walking out to the front of the car and looking to see if both lamps were on during both low and high-beam operation.
The bulb is easy to replace by removing a couple of screws and removing the entire assembly and from the rear of the lamp housing, simply twist the bulb counter clockwise and out it comes.
I decided to replace both the left and right bulbs while I was at it and the package came with two bulbs anyway.
Hope this solves your problem.
i just bought a 1996 pontaic sunfire for my son the day light running lights wont come on and when i flip it from hi beam to low beam i have no lights can you help me and also how and the heck do you change the licene plate bulb
thanks terry crisfieldmd@Verizon.net
yes thay do have DTR on a 1995 sunfire
I'm guessing that you want to be able to turn off the daytime running lights on your car. As far as I know, there is no such switch on the Sunfire. The daytime running lights are on whenever the car is running and is in gear.
u have a blown headlight. change both bulobs and it will stop.
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.
There are relays in under or by the grill
from what I've found the only way to shut off your daytime running lights is to put on the e-brake, or take out the fuse, which isn't the best idea. the daytime running lights will also usually not work if there is a blown hi-beam light
if you pull up ever so slightly on the e-brake the lights wil go out. carefull not to engage the brake while moving. but just lifting it a little will engage a sensor that turns out the lights.
Seperate circuits I believe.
You need to replace the DRL (Daytime running light) Module
Remove the fuse on the interior fuse box
how so you turn on the daytime running lights on a 99 suburban
yes, they are always on. as in most gm vehicles they have daytime running lights.
There are a few reasons why your daytime running lights are flashing. Your wiring could be messed up or your lights might be burning out.
headlights and dash lights in 2001 sunfire wont turn on.
Generally, a blinking DRL indicator on the dash means that there is a headlight burned out. Replacing them is cheap and easy.
there is a relay under the hood that should disconnect the daytime running lights
The 1992 Ford Ranger did not come equipped with daytime running lights.
To change the reverse lights on a Pontiac Sunfire you need to locate it on the left side of the transaxle. Then, unplug the electric connector and remove the switch along with the socket.
It may not have daytime running lights.
the quickest and easiest way to do it on any car is to pull the e-brake lever up until it clicks just one time.
You can,t switch between high and low beam in DRL mode. Only when you turn on the headlights with the HL switch.
No it did not.
DRL are your Daytime Running Lights
I am presently having the same problem on my '97 sunfire. According to the wiring diagram, the daytime running lights are actually just the highbeams running in series. For whatever reason, I don't have a driver side high beam either. I assumed it was the relay, but I might be mistaken. Where is the darn relay located anyway? the relay is in the fuse box inside the car on the drivers side door panel
Where is the 1994 JEEP grand cherokee Daytime Running Lamps Lights Module? Lights are working but the running lights and dash board lights are out.
