to get to the DRL bulb, you first need to remove the front grill. simple process: pop the hood, find all the little push pins that hold the radiatior/fan cover on and pop them out with a flathead screw driver. set pins and top plastic aside. 10mm hex driver removes bolt holding grill to radiator A frame. set bolt aside. using Phillips screwdriver, turn the black plastic retainers, 1 at each corner of grill assembly, counterclockwise until click. using flathead wrapped in rag push very sides of grill where meets fender inward to release the clips. remove grill. DRL is in the bottom headlamp assembly and is the closest bulb to the center of the vehicle. remove the bottom headlamp assembly: push the clip of the assembly closest to the center of vehicle until it releases(push hard) then using a flathead, do the same to the clip of assembly taht is towards the outside of vehicle. look at DRL bulb housing, push tab of the housing inside the headlamp assembly and turn that housing until bulb comes out. to remove bulb, use a flathead screwdriver and pry the tabs holding bulb plug inside housing until bulb comes out. voila. reverse to reassemble.

AnswerThe assemblies are snapped into place tightly. You need to pull on the lense from the outside edge toward the center to release the catch. (Once you get them out you will see how simple it is)Don't do it in the cold, the plastic may crack. Once out they take a 3156 bulb I think.Good luck.

You need to replace the DRL (Daytime running light) Module

DRL = Daytime Running Lights, which is essentially your high beam bulbs manipulated to be dimmer.

Simple: Remove fuse #15. It is labeled DRL/FOG. If you have fog lights you will lose those too.

Typically one cannot disable a drl on the 2003 Honda Accord because it is a required safety feature. To disable the drl you would have to take it to any Honda service center and have them disable the drl for you. They would have to disconnect the required attachments to successfully disable the drl without compromising the rest of the mechanisms.

It will vary depending on year of Tahoe. In general, Chevrolet Tahoe daytime running light (DRL) bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement daytime running light (DRL) bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the daytime running light (DRL) bulb replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).

You remove the old burnt out bulb and replace it with a new. And no, they do not control your blinkers and taillights. See sources and related links below to lookup DRL light bulb part numbers by vehicle make, model and year.

The DRL module is ON by default. Unless someone modified your van, it should be ON.The sensor for telling if it is day or night is in the top center of the dash.Take Care,Greg

drl are not the same as low beems they are low watt bulbs that do not project as far. strictly used to be seen in dusky conditions. the low beams should project out more higher on to the road. sounds like the low beam fuse when out or maybe a relay

User Avatar

Yes but you may have to research the bulb. It appears that the DRL's are 4114's but I cannot find a 4114-A. Amber can face front legally on vehicles.

Just remove the DRL fuse in the fuse box. Open drivers door and the fuse box is on the side of dash.

If you are in the US just disable the DRL, you will just have to replace the altinator sooner if you keep them on. If not check the wiring, I believe it has separte wiring for the DRL. * thanks but i want to keep my DRL Would changing the flasher unit work

DRL stands for Daytime Running Lamps.

The DRL Module is located at the LH Rocker Panel left of the brake, under and just below the dash. The DRL Module and the DRL Relay are side-by-side.
