I do not have an answer, but I do have the same problem as you do. I have a 2001 L200, and from the moment you start the engine, every few seconds, the security light will flash and the temperature and gas gauge needles will act as if you turned off the car, and then pop back up where they should be. When the headlights are on, the dash lights will flash along with the security light and the gauges. The headlights and radio are not affected, though. In addition to that, the odometer has also stopped working. It has read the same milage since I noticed some time ago. I will let you know if I find out anything.
Check the daytime running lights module. This has failed with other manufactures resulting in lights that stay on, or are very dim while the vehicle is running.
There are 3 different things that can cause the security lights to flash constantly on a 2002 Saturn Vue. These things are a bad passlock sensor in the ignition housing, a bad BCM, or a bad PCM.
running or parking lights, or plate light, but that is singular.
Day Light Running Lights.
Check the ground wire to the tail lights.
Where is the 1994 JEEP grand cherokee Daytime Running Lamps Lights Module? Lights are working but the running lights and dash board lights are out.
security lights use resistors as the light out side falls the security light turns on and as it gets lighterbout side the light dimms and turns off, in bmw's the resistors are used to detect when the lights should come on as light gets brighter the car lights turn off.
what about the day running lights? You want to know how to turn them off?If you do then once you start the truck turn the light switch to the left and that shuts them off.
I have a chev cavlier 1995 and the running lights do no work---on the dash the green light keeps blinking----what should I do?
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?
blinking red light
My rear window brake light works, but not my tail light brakes on my 1997 Monte Carlo. What is the problem?
If you cut the wire from the light switch to the frount running lights (single use light) you can then hook a new wire from a keyed power source (check manuel) and the running lights will come on every time you start the truck. costs $Priceless
It may not have daytime running lights.
Have you checked fuses?
usually due to a defective daytime running light module failure..
Daytime running light. Usually mean the daytime running lights have a problem
on my 1996 Saturn it was a blown fuse under my hood my headlights worked, but the lcd light or my back lights on my car didnt work.
brakes and running lights have separate fuses. check the fuse then check the brake light switch under the dash
They are day time running lights. You can turn them of by pulling out the day time running light fuse. Saab manual will help you locate the fuse.
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.
