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.
light sensitive sells
check fuse for the running light module.
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.
I would start with replacing the head light switch
Loose connection SOMEWHERE. It could be a defective DRL (daytime Running Light) module
well the headlight would not have light coming out of it.
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.
There are several things that can cause your day time running the light relay switch to malfunction in your 2001 Chevy. The most common cause is a loose or corroded ground wire.
you need to change the bulbs Once the running lights burn out the rest of the bulb doesn't work right one of my low beams went out and the running light would flash a light out display and the rest of the lights would work right. I replaced it and everything went back to normal You can also try replacing the DRL (daytime running light) relay in the fuse box on the side of the dash. It pulls right out...$12 for replacement. From my experience the problem may not have to do with the DRL, but with the turn signal switch / headlight switch module. These are approximately 59.00. You will need a steering wheel puller, screwdriver (flathead), and possibly pliers. Be sure to disconnect the battery before servicing though.
During daytime, there is a lot of light in the surrounding. The bulb emits light in all the directions, hence the light is not concentrated. But in the flash light, the light is reflected .as a result of which all the light comes out in one direction. This light is concentrated. Hence it would be more useful during daytime.
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.
It is possible - you must splice the fog light power leads into the DRL circuit and they should come on as the DRL's would.
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.
You have a short circuit. make sure a bare wire is not touching metal Found the answer: I had a bad daytime running light module.
Bad switch, bad daytime running light module wiring issue
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.
It feel INSIDE the headlight housing? Yikes. Well, you're going to have to remove the whole housing assembly, and get that part out. It would be very dangerous to leave it in there. Use the other headlight as a reference to put it back where it belongs.
The simplest way to do it would be to cut the DRL wires to the headlamp assemblies. The more complex way would be to locate and remove the DRL circuit board under the dash.
A flashing DRL telltale indicates a possible burned out headlamp, or that the vehicle may need service to repair a stuck DRL relay.
In Canada, I would recommend you not do so, as by design all vehicles made for use in Canada must have an active daytime running light system. In the USA De-Activating a safety feature that may not be required by law is like not wearing your seatbelts because you won't be fined for doing so. If you really feel so strongly about not having your daytime headlights on you could remove your High beam headlights...... That would solve your problem.
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.
No it will not.
faulty drl module Check the fuse.The fuse may be blown
There is a fuse for these lights. I would highly recommend not doing this as it is illegal.
