how do i fix my daytime running lights on my 2001 grand prix gt headlights work perfect

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?

I take it you have daytime running lights , if so by engaging the emergency / parking brake the daytime running lights should go off

Dodge Rams are not equipped with Daytime running lights.. Although what you can do is turn on the parking lights and select just your fog lights (if equipped) otherwise to have running lights you will need to turn on your headlights. It's not a huge advantage to have running lights, because when the climates come that you need to turn on the headlights anyways, they aren't necessary.

I'm not sure I understand your question. DRL stands for daytime running lights. Your daytime running lights are on the front of your car; when you are driving, even if you have the headlights in the off position, the DRLs will be on. It's a safety feature.

No, it's not, it's no more illegal than having your daytime running lights on.

To disable the daytime running lights on a 2008 Sequoia, turn the head light switch to the center position. It should show two headlights, one with an 'X' and a line between the two.

Daytime running lights on a Honda Civic are the same as normal headlights. To fix or replace them, locate the headlight housing in the front of the car. Remove the plastic housing and replace the bulbs.

yes, they are always on. as in most gm vehicles they have daytime running lights.

To fix faulty daytime running lights on a 1996 Chev Suburban, check if the bulbs are blown. If so, replace it. If the new bulbs are blown immediately upon replacement, check the wiring running to the headlights.

Pull the headlight switch out toward you. Fog lights will only engage when headlights (not just daytime running lights) are engaged.

Auto headlights come on when it is dark. Daytime running lights are on whenever the engine is on. Both are optional equipment.

how so you turn on the daytime running lights on a 99 suburban

I am having the same problem with a 1994 model. The high beam indicator is also on. I believe it is related to the daytime running lights because when I turn on the headlights the lights get brighter. As I understand it daytime running lights are the highbeams at about 50% power. I need to find where that relay is and test/replace it. wish me luck...

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.

If it's doing this while the vehicle is running, it would be because the daytime running light system of the Grand Am included the instrument panel lights. Prior to the daylight sensor becoming standard, on some GM products, only the headlights were part of the daytime running lights system, while on others, it included all the lights.

Your car probably has daytime running lights which operate at 60% of full power.

The 1992 Ford Ranger did not come equipped with daytime running lights.

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.

Sounds like your vehicle is equipped with the daytime running lights (DRL system) When the vehicle is started and the emergency brake is released , the daytime running lamps automatically come on. Start your vehicle and then apply the parking brake to see if the headlights shut off , if they do then you have the DRL system.

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.

i think, depending on the year, that problem is caused by a factory defect.

Some vehicles have daytime running lights that are supposed to make the vehicle more visible to others.
