SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Headlight problem

We had the same exact symptoms right down to the clicking noise under the dash. A friend who is a mechanic provided all the wiring diagrams, etc and when we pulled the dash we found that there was another enclosure behind the dash.....we stopped there.......

....waited a few days, did some research and decided since a replacement headlight switch was about $50.00 the easiest route was to to swap that out hoping it would fix the problem....was also a very easy installation.

Turns out that fixed the problem. Good luck!!!

Check the connector to the DRL module behind the headlight switch, it may have burnt contacts.

SOURCE: Headlights won't turn on. Daytime running lights stay on.

See if you can hold on your highbeams, as a temporary solution, until you can check and see if the fuse in the switch to turn your lights on is burnt out. I had the same problem with my car and apparently it was a defective part that GM had produced, but obviously they won't replace it free of charge. I would suggest going to an auto-wreckers and picking up a new switch there... the part usually costs around $400 in Canada.

Check to make sure your parking brake is not partially engaged. If the parking brake is engaged even to one click off from the released position the DRL module will be disengaged. Also there may be a problem with the parking brake position sensor which is responsible for determining if the parking brake is partially engaged.

99 - 04 grand am.

I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.

How do I get the low beams to run automatically whenever driving instead of flickering?




if you did it yourself and did not use factory lights or ballast then it could be a voltage detection problem. If you did use factory parts then the headlight switch may have failed by coincidence. also check connections at HL plugs and or switch. ???????????

Fitted hid headlights now driving lights dont work


The problem with HID lights is that they require 12 volts or more to work. Daytime running lights on require 6-9 volts from the module. So when the original lights are replaced, the daytime running lights will not supply enough voltage to the HID ballasts to turn them on. The result? No Daytime Running lights. Another alternative is to purchase LED strips and place them around your headlights with a fused accessory power from the ignition switch. When the car is on the strips light up and you have Daytime Running Lights!

Daytime running lights


Just reverse the polarity of the wires (plug them in backwards) on the battery and without turning the key or anything, turn the lights on. This will cause the DRL and ALC feature to stop working. Then return the cables to to the proper polarities and voila, there you have it. Now you have total control over your headlights, day or night. I did this to my car because i put HID bulbs in and they work perfectly. 7 months and no problems with the lights or the service light coming on soon.

Hid's not working


Check the wiring inside the headlight assy. I had a bad wire in a unit I installed. Once I tracked it down and repaired the wire all was fine.

HID LIGHTS


You have to bypass the Daytime Running Light (DRL) feature. If you are good with soldering and know how to work with resistors and capacitors, you can EASILY fabricate your own bypass. Check out:

This is a forum that I actively moderate. I have tried option 3 which allows you to turn off your headlights completely and it works perfectly. Definitely the best option.
