How do you change the daylight running lights on a 2001 Chevy Suburban?

Lift the hood and behind the headlamps there are two L shaped rods that insert into the harness of the head lamps. Rotate the rods toward the grill, this unlocks the rods. Next remove the rods and this frees up the head lamps. Remove the headlamps from the grill allowing for access to the daytime running lamps. I left the headlamp wiring harnesses intact. The daytime running lamps have a lever that you push to unlock and then rotate to release and then you can change out the bulb easily. Reverse steps to replace lamp assemblies. This was a difficult find until I caught on to the above and then took less than five minutes. Have fun.

Fog lamps- usually owner installed and are located low on the front of the car to illuminate the road directly in front of the vehicle well when fog restricts distance vision. turn signal- located on front fender and visible from both side and front of vehicle, usually just below the headlamps and are used to indicate your intention to turn. they are on a flasher relay. Daytime running lamps, a secondary bulb in the headlamp that is not as bright and is as of 2000 mandatory in most states. It is used to increase visibility of the vehicle, and to bridge the gap between night and daylight or dusk. None of these will operate on the same circuit as each other.
