You could hook up Redstone lamps to daylight sensors.

Push the parking break in just one click and it will turn off the running lights. Make sure it is only one click in or you will ware out your break pads.

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.

I presume you're asking about a daylight running light switch? As far as I know, there is no such switch in a Sunfire. They're on when the car is running and is gear. FriPilot

No they are all different. 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.

2001 GMC Savanna Van Daylight running lights. Do I need to disable the daylight running lights so I can install HID lighting system, for it to work?

DRL stands for Daytime Running Lamps.

Typically city transportation employees change the bulbs in street lamps approximately every 3-4 years. For the high sitting lamps, a mast is raised and the bulbs are replaced, usually during the daylight hours.

There is a module that you can buy [$40] for daylight running light. It is easy to install and comes with an instructions. Do you have a part number or name of supplier?

Projectors usually become dim when the "lamps" are running out and they need changing. To be honest I would suggest changing the lamps every 6 months to ensure that the lamps do not run out.

There is a relay for the lamps. It's either shorted out or there may be a bad fuse causing this problem also.

Your vehicle is equipped the Daytime Running Lights, (DRL). A daytime running lamp (DRL, also daylight running lamp or daytime running light) is a lighting device on the vehicle that are installed in pairs. They automatically are switched on when the vehicle is moving forward, and is intended to increase the conspicuity of the vehicle during daylight conditions.

The daylight running lights of a Ford Explorer can be turned off by using the manual headlight control switch. Place the switch in the middle position to turn the daytime running lights off. The headlights will then need to be turned on manually at dusk.

one thing you could do is locate the fuse for the running lamps and pull it out but that may turn off your regular driving lamps. if that don't work than i don't belive you can turn them off.

No. The two circuits are not normally connected.
