It can be the module under the eash. Look at the panel your headlight switch is mounted to the left of the steering wheel. Your in luck! There's only a few popout cosmetic caps then a couple of screws to get it out. I found when fiddling with the connector on the back of the headlight switch , the running lights would come on and off. I applied the right pressure and forced a screw in the seams until the lights stayed on. This maybe a temporary fix.
