If it's just a round flashing light that has no indication as to it's meaning, it's probably the Daytime Running Light indicator. It's only on when the headlights are OFF. If it's flashing, it generally means that one of your DRL's has burned out.
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.
yes thay do have DTR on a 1995 sunfire
fuse box on the inside of the car, driver side
Had the same problem. Found it to be a bad ground wire for the headlights. There are two ground wires for the headlights, both are directly below the battery. You can see one of them if you remove the drivers side headlight. It is right behind the radiator hose. The other is a few inches from that one.
Generally, a blinking DRL indicator on the dash means that there is a headlight burned out. Replacing them is cheap and easy.
yes, they are always on. as in most gm vehicles they have daytime running lights.
What you're seeing is not your headlights. They are your Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs'). They are a great safety feature, making you much more visible to other drivers.
Answering my own question here, it's what I thought it was. One of my high beams was out, so my high beam indicator was flashing when my headlights were not turned on. As for the daytime running lights, they came back on when I changed the bulb.
u have a blown headlight. change both bulobs and it will stop.
When i was trying to disable my DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) i pulled the fuse for them and my headlights and instrument lights were flashing intermittently. Check the fuse panel in the glove box and look for the DRL fuse. Check if its blown. Hope this helps!!!
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.
I'm not quite sure I understand your question. If the daytime running light indicator on the dash is flashing, it generally means that a headlight lamp has burned out. Maybe you can give us a little more information about what's happening.
When it is raining during the day you should always keep your headlights on.
You can,t switch between high and low beam in DRL mode. Only when you turn on the headlights with the HL switch.
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.
I believe most GM cars the daytime running lights can be turned off by applying the parking brake.
That means you have a small kinda short in your lights. Mine did the same thing. Its the adapter that plugs into your lights. You can buy a new one for like 9 bucks at autozone.
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.
When these cars came out, they did not have the day time running light safety feature. This feature has been installed since the car came out.
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
Well, the daytime running lights are on whenever the car is running and in gear. They're off when you have the headlights on. So, your service light Doesn't come on when the headlights are on?? If you switch the headlights between on and off (with the car running and in gear) does the service light follow?
DRL is your daytime running lamps, meaning that your headlights are on for safety during daytime driving. HID is just the type of bulb, very bright, the ones you dont want to meet at night.
how do i fix my daytime running lights on my 2001 grand prix gt headlights work perfect
