yes, they are always on. as in most gm vehicles they have daytime running lights.
Auto headlights come on when it is dark. Daytime running lights are on whenever the engine is on. Both are optional equipment.
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.
When it is raining during the day you should always keep your headlights on.
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.
No, it's not normal. Some 2003 Vibe's have automatic headlights triggered by a light sensor. If you leave the headlight switch in the middle setting between "on" and "off" they will come on by themselves when it's dark. If you turn them off the daytime running lights will still come on and the high beams will still work but the headlights won't come on automatically at night.
I believe most GM cars the daytime running lights can be turned off by applying the parking brake.
Automatic headlights are those that will automatically come on when you start the car and should sense the ambient outdoor light and decide whether or not to go to full power mode. (If relative darkness is sensed, full power is used. If relative light is detected, a lower power or 'daytime mode' is used.)
The only way to turn off the DRL (daytime running lights) is to remove the fuse that controls that function. There is no switch or computer code that changes that.
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.
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?
No they did not come factory equipped with daytime running lights.
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.
Yes, inasmuch as they turn off when you shut off the engine and remove the ignition key; and the standard daytime running lights come on when you're driving. You have to switch from DRL to headlights with a switch, though - but in my soob I just leave my headlight switch on all the time anyway.
push in on your dome override button twice. Note you will have to do this everytime you shut it off. the engine has to be running when you do this,this also disables the automatic headlights. Hope this helps.
how do i fix my daytime running lights on my 2001 grand prix gt headlights work perfect
At night yes, but in the day no because the sunlight overpowers the headlights and high beam lights.
Check the daytime running light module
Generally, a blinking DRL indicator on the dash means that there is a headlight burned out. Replacing them is cheap and easy.
Someone has changed the wiring.
Daytime yes. Night time and when precipatating; no.
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 relays in under or by the grill
The lights will go out after a few mins after you shut off the car...but if you want to turn off the Daytime running lights or the automatic headlight control, you have to pull either the relay or fuse for the DRL
