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.

Where is the day light switch 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.

How can i fix a 1999 Pontiac sunfire that the tail lights and brake lights are not working but daytime runners and back window brake light works what is wrong?

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.

The daytime running lights quit on your 1998 Pontiac Sunfire now the high beam indicator light is on constantly The relay is good but when removed the drivers side headlight turns off?

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
