I think these cars have lamp circuit sensing. It may be caused by a blown lamp or incorrect lamp (wattage). This is only a guess, but I have seen it in other makes/models. Good Luck The DRL relay inside the gauge cluster has been blown. The only way to fix it is to either replace the whole cluster (easiest) or dissemble and replace the DRL relay.

where is the daytime running light relay located on a 2002 chevy cavalier

Generally, a blinking DRL indicator on the dash means that there is a headlight burned out. Replacing them is cheap and easy.

You may be mistaken it for the DDL's (Daytime Driving Lights) They come on while in gear... High beams have a BLUE light on the dash, while, the DDL's have a GREEN light.

Turn on the headlights and walk to front of car and see if both headlights are on. Make sure to check both the high beam and low beam head lights. I believe that the blinking light you are seeing is to tell you that one of the headlight bulbs is burnt out and needing replacement. That's the Daytime running light indicator. Check that they are working.

More then likely your DRL's aren't working. Either that or your car doesn't think they're working which is probably some sensor.

This is caused by one of your headlights being out most likely the brights. turn the car on switch from brights to normal and daylight lights and you will see on is out, you just need to replace the headlights Did you find out the answer? I want to know because mine is doing the same thing. Thanks! richandjopost@hotmail.com Along with the blinking you should hear clicking, the clicking is a faulty daylight running light relay. The DRL Relay is the located in the fuse box. I installed HIDs in my 04 cavy and when the daytime runners are used they do not supply enough power to the Catalyst. so i have to turn them on manually to get them to stop blinking. (daytime dash light also blinks) its kinda cool when u accidentally pull someone over with flickering headlights lol. i just wanted to throw my personal experience curve ball.

Answering my own question here, it's what I thought it was. One of my high beams was out, so my high beam indicator was flashing when my headlights were not turned on. As for the daytime running lights, they came back on when I changed the bulb.

If you're talking about the green head light indicator to the upper left of your speedometer on your dash, that's the daytime running light indicator (DRL). The high beam indicator is a blue indicator and is inside the speedometer arc. A lot of people confuse these two indicators. The daytime running lights may be disabled by preferably removing the DRL fuse in the fuse box in the driver's door jamb or engaging the parking break.

my 05' cavalier has a bad alternator problem its charging the battery a little bit then stops and the little power my battery has is drained by the end of the night. I replaced the alternator twice and the battery but still no difference.

User Avatar

i was wondering whether the switch at the parking brake could affect this problem.

The problem may be the electronic module that controls your daytime running lights. If there is a plug to the module, unplug it and the hi beam lights will work. The Hi Beam light indicator may not work now though until you replace the module.

User Avatar

the answer is one obvious fault; from one of two probable problems: the buggered part is the DRL module [Daytime Running Light], but it may have just been the module's time to go, or it may be a manufactured defect in the cavalier's wiring loom, located just inder the battery tray at the left front corner, causing a short circut, thus cooking your DRL, killing your headlights, and causing the flashy 'we've got a problem' light to show on your dash

The opposite of daytime is nighttime.

The noun 'daytime' is an uncountable noun.
