How do I disengage the daytime running lights and still have the ability to have the headlights on at night.


The light switch can over ride the DRL. If it doesn't. You have 3 possibilities. The switch s bad, the light sensor is bad, or the BCM is bad or not receiving signals. Have the codes read for the BCM.. Takes a scanner. Not a code reader.

1998 Lumina lights don't work at night!The lights work during the day but not at night. Does anyone know how to fix it?


Theres a sensor in the middle of the dash by the front windshield that detects sunlight and triggers the automatic headlights. The main headlights and daytime running lights might be on a different circuit, in which case they daytime running lamps would turn off at night and the main headlights would turn on, indicating the main headlights arent working and the daytime running lamps are working as intended.

I would check all the fuses related to headlights, check the bulbs and check the switch, then last the light sensor on the dash.

I cant turn off the headlights off while my 03 GMC Sierra Z71 is running, the manual switch does nothing unless the truck is turned off.


I have a 2003 GMC Sierra Z71 Extended Cab and the headlight switch won't turn off the headlights while the truck is running. When I got the truck the Photocell Sensor which is the black bubble that sits on the dash that tells the daytime running lights to turn off and on was down in the dash so I fished it out with my fingers and clipped it back in and it made the daytime running lights work. I still can't turn my headlights off while my truck is running though. The owner's manual says that I am able to do so. There's 2 light's on the switch by AUTO and the O for off that should light up? Is it my whole switch?

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

Running lights,high beam but no low beam headlights. Has daytime running lights but when you turn the headlights on ,no low beam but they work with the day time running lights?


I would check the switch which is separate from the module that controls the daytime running lamps.
Check for fuses blown for the headlamps.

Also, check for the relay operation by following the wires back to it, if so equipped.

Check for a good ground for the headlamp wires that you follow back to make sure they are solidly connected to a ground.

Good luck on this repair.

Headlights only work when car is in gear


If you are stating the headlights only work while in gear (during the day or night) then they are your daytime running lights. Don;t know if you vehicle has automatic headlights or a manual switch. If you are stating you turn the headlights on and they only illuminate while in gear then there are other issues. Let me know

Jetta headlights not working


Ignition switch will cause you to loose your head lights and turn signals. You will still be able to start the car and hold the switch for your brights but normal function is gone. Check it out it usually only runs about $20-$30 for replacement part but you need a special puller to get to it.

Daytime Running lights run the battery dead


The Toyota Service Bulletin is 059633, dated March 13, 2003. My 2003 Corolla has the same problem. When the lights were on this morning after a very cold night, I jiggled the headlamp switch and sure enough, the headlights turned on and off. I found that the lights can be kept off if the switch is pushed forward and left in the "high beam" position when the car is off and the weather is expected to be cold. This is easier than pulling the fuse every time, until the switch can be replaced. It worked for me. Hope this helps.
