If the Explorer is running engaging the parking brake is supposed to turn the
daytime running lights off , otherwise the daytime running lights are supposed to shut
off when the engine is shut off .
I have a 2004, Eddie Bauer Explorer. On the light switch itself, there is a selection to turn on or off the day lights, as well as the extended, courtesy lights after ignition is turned off.
Remove the thumbscrews which attach the headlight and turn / running lights. Both have to be removed to access the daytime running light bulb.Type your answer here...
Where is the module light day on Mazda tribute 2003 4 cylindre
You need to replace the DRL (Daytime running light) Module
If you just want them off when your parked, just put on the emergency brake.
Press one click on the emergency brake. This works on most GM's.
there is a number of things that could cause this. here are a few easy ones to check. is the e-brake fully disengaged. are the bulbs burnt out. is the wiring harness plugged into the daytime lights bulbs and in good condition. if these check out, you may have a fault in the daytime running light module.
DRL - Daytime Running Light (relay). Found over the top of brake pedal area under dash. Used in conjunction with Automatic light Control Sensor, head lights, fog lights, and control switches to control light operations. Your automatic lights and Daytime Running Lights are controlled by this module.
You should be able to pull the fuse for the daytime running lights to disable them. Probably located in the fuse panel under the hood. There should be a picture on the inside of the lid which tells you which fuse is which.
If you are parked with the motor running, engage the parking/emergency brake. Turn the ignition off and restart the engine. The daytime running lights should not be on.
mine was under the hood on the upper part of the engin bay right in my face 2003 ram 1500
I was wondering is there a fuse diagram for the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT? What causes the left and right signal lights to not work on the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT? Can the side mirrors on the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT?
These are called daytime running lamps it is for safety reasons ====================================================== if you want them to not come on all the time, then remove the fuse labeled "DRL" (daytime running lights). It is located in the fuse panel on the right side of the dash with the passenger door open
If you are referring to the brake lights it is probably a bad brake light switch. Your vehicle may also have daytime running lights which would be on without the parking lights.
you take out the DRL fuse under the dash. that's the daytime running lights.
in order rto do this you first have to have your wife bent over in front of the car then drive it in her loose box .
The whole headlight on these 03 silverado is not that hard to take it out. When you pop the hood open as you look on the headlight there should a long piece of tube metal that is holding the headlight onto your car. As I recall there shouldn't be any screws or bolts holding the headlights. That is for headlights, not "Daytime Running Lights". Still looking for answer!
Bad switch, bad daytime running light module wiring issue
Disconnecting a working light may make your car defectable under law. "All lights fitted to a vehicle must be working". So why would you want to disconnect the DRL's from a new vehicle??? == Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are bright, white, forward-facing lights that improve the forward conspicuousness of vehicles in the daytime. They are usually activated automatically when the engine is running. NRMA Motoring & Services commissioned a study of DRLs in 2003 which suggested that they should be standard on all vehicles as they could save lives and prevent injuries by increasing vehicle visibility.
Probably not. Many newer vehicles have a similar feature that allows certain lights, usually the daytime running lights (headlight switch is off, but headlights are on low intensity high beam) and related ones, to turn off when the parking brake is engaged. I suspect that you will find that your daytime running headlights do the same thing. It is simply the vehicle 'realising' that the parking brake is on and, therefore, the running lights are unneccessary.
Tail lights and brake lights fuse.
Evidentally the lights were wired up wrong. You will have to take ti to someone and have it streightened out. Are you sure they don't work? They only come on when the engine is running and the vehcile is in gear. If you just start the truck up and look for the lights, they will not be on. It has to be in gear.
You must have a cross wire or a loose wire somewhere you should check a good electrian.
I have 112,000 miles on my 2003 Ford Explorer and it is still running strong!
If you pull the parking brake up the running lights will go off - if not - start the car with the parking brake on and that should work, if you want to drive with the running lights off - you can get away with "slightly" putting the parking brake on (just so the parking brake light goes on in the dash but the brakes itself makes no contact) Otherwise you can remove the relay that controls the daytimes - maybe even a fuse
Yes! For a 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, at least, all it takes is the removal of one relay labelled DRL to deactivate with no ill effects. It's a five-minute job that took me almost a year to discover.
