When driving with headlights off during day, car runs fine. when lights are used at night, lights go dim and car dies. battery drains down and when recaharged will run for awhile. new battery and alternator is good.
Here is a tip check to see if all ur contacts are clean and making a proper connection I once had a problem with a car that was doing the same thing i bout a new alternator drove it around and battery died on me battery was good so i took it to auto zone and they did a battery inspecting which includes the alternator being checked it turned out that the new alternator was not good Another tip check ur alternator wire harnest it might not b locked into position sometimes the clip that locks the harnest in place breaks and if u think that just by connecting it It will work fine any bump on the road will cause ur harnest to move or not make contact

The problem probable is a short to ground on one of ur circuits. when u drive at night u have ur headlights on which forces the alternator to produce more electricity. making it seem normal. or a defective alternator
check the earth wire first,wattage on the bulbs in case their wrong or old type bulbs ,check supply voltage ,if all ok then fit aux spot lights .if still having a problem have eyes checked as over 40 the old peepers can deteriorate ,dont know the name of it but it can affect some people at a younger age than others,glasses will not correct this problem.
The day time running lamps are your headlights, the parking lights also conventionally known as the running lights serve no purpose during daylight hours and as such are not necessary in the daytime, and are not illuminated by the DRL module. The DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module illuminates the headlamps in a slightly dimmer state than night time dim headlamps, but does not turn on the conventional running lights. The only way you'll get conventional running lights during the day is to turn them on manually. I just reviewed the wiring schematics for that system, and the DRL relay bypasses the dimmer switch when active and prevents high beam operation, and feeds current directly to the low beam headlights, there is no connection to the parking light circuit from the DRL module wiring.
