light sensitive sells
There is a fuse for these lights. I would highly recommend not doing this as it is illegal.
Check the daytime running lights module. This item was defective in some vehicles in the early 90's, and when it failed the result was lights that would not turn off or they would be very dim when the vehicle was running. You can check for recalls at the dealer.
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.
the daytime running lites go out when you put the trans in park. they also go out when you depress the parking brake. i would start looking there.
If the headlight that runs through the modulator first is out then the daytime running lights won't work. Change the bulb and the daytime lights should then work.
faulty drl module Check the fuse.The fuse may be blown
It depends on where the vehicle was sold when new. In Canada it would have them, in most of the USA, no.
Most likely no. The only ones with drl, would have been from Canada.
check fuse for the running light module.
No. The power to illuminate the Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) is supplied by the alternator, and does not have to be supplied by the battery. Once a vehicle is started and the engine is running you could remove the battery from the car entirely and everything requiring current would still operate.
Disconnecting a working light may make your car defectable under law. "All lights fitted to a vehicle must be working". So why would you want to disconnect the DRL's from a new vehicle??? == Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are bright, white, forward-facing lights that improve the forward conspicuousness of vehicles in the daytime. They are usually activated automatically when the engine is running. NRMA Motoring & Services commissioned a study of DRLs in 2003 which suggested that they should be standard on all vehicles as they could save lives and prevent injuries by increasing vehicle visibility.
there is a number of things that could cause this. here are a few easy ones to check. is the e-brake fully disengaged. are the bulbs burnt out. is the wiring harness plugged into the daytime lights bulbs and in good condition. if these check out, you may have a fault in the daytime running light module.
It could be a number of things. First check all of the fuses. It could be the module which controls the lights but it needs to be checked out. There is also a relay for the daytime running lights on your car i would check into that if all fuses are good.
Some makes of cars have their lights on all the time, usually if the manufacturer is Swedish, where daytime-running-lights (or DRL) are mandated by law. If you check the cars which have lights on during the day, you'll notice they'll be Volvo, Saab or some other Nordic manufacturer.
i think, depending on the year, that problem is caused by a factory defect.
Pull fuse number 13...
I believe that would be Daytime Running Lights ( Canada in 1991 )
If the engine isn't running, the battery is low. If the engine is running, the alternator probably has a problem. If you are wearing dark sunglasses, remove them and the lights will get brighter. good luck!
All of these parts run on electricity, and for all of them to fail would be bad. Bad or burnt wiring could cause them not to work, or a alternator going bad could cause them not to work as well.
If you are referring to the brake lights it is probably a bad brake light switch. Your vehicle may also have daytime running lights which would be on without the parking lights.
If you mean the headlight switch, pulling it out once turns on the dash lights and turns off the daytime running lights, pulling it again turns on the headlights.
You have a serious electrical problem. I would start by checking and cleaning body chassis and engine grounds If that's not it look for a damaged wiring harness in the steering colom
The running lights have a bad ground.
I believe it is under the dash on the pass side of van. If your daytime lights go on and off when driving it you better get it change >mine went out the security light came on and would not start.
