If the daytime running lights are out on 2002 Pontiac Sunfire sedan but headlights work and service lights come on when running lights try to go on how can you fix this on your own?

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.

What is better flashlight or bulb in the daytime?

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.

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.

How can you disable the daytime running lights on the new body style 99 silverado?

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.
