On quite a few DTR systems, the lights *will* shut off, but only between 30 sec to a couple minutes after the ignition's been turned off.

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.
