The only way I know of that this could happen is if the lights have a bad ground.Answeri am having the same problem and seams like my daytime running lights "controll module" is bad. its located under steering colume and has a 11 wire plug to it. . AnswerThere is a relay(#2) and a diode module in the relay box under the hood you can check. This is independent of the DRL circuit, so you could have DRL but no regular lights. If your DRL module is bad, you should still have high beams. That circuit doesn't go through the module. This is what happened to my 95, and what I did to fix it. Had intermittent lights and eventually no lights at all. Look at your fuse block. One of the two farthest corners has a connector with six wires. These wires come from the switch on the steering column. See if one of the wires looks burnt and/or if you can wiggle them and make the lights work. If you have that, then this wire is burning out of the connector and you need to try to fix this before you lose the DRL too. The terminal in my fuse block was damaged beyond repair, but the cicuit also led to an unused terminal in a three terminal connector beside the row of spare fuses. I put the appropriate sized spade terminal on the end of the burned-out wire and it was just long enough to reach over there and plug right in. I'm assuming it burned out from being loose and excessive resistance, maybe from being next to the clutch pedal. I've had no problem since the repair.

In my case, when turning the lights on, the daytime lights turn off, but the taillamps still on. I found that the steering wheel combo switch (turning lights/windshield switch) connector (the clear color one, was excesive hot and the plastic melt. I changed the connector by a junkyard one and it worked. I guess if you don't have one handy, you'll need to fix your old one.
Answerthis is what you need to know if I have just discovered this same problem in my mother's 96 Metro The daytime running lights work ok, but as soon as you put the lights on, the daytime running lights cut out and all you are left with are the parking lights. In addition the brights work when you pull the stick towards you, but will not stay on when you puh the stick forward to leave them on. I removed the whole fuse block from under the dash and discovered one burnt out terminal on the under side. All of the other terminals in the block are nice and clean looking except for this one that is dicolored with burnt plastic around it. My advice would be to replace the fuse block and possibly the connector that plugs into it.http://geometroforum.com/topic/2575236/1/#new
