    I have a 1998 Chevrolet K 2500 with low beams not working, everything else works fine. No work has every been done on the steering colum and the wires have not been spliced. What about the DLR module and how can it be identified.

If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column. My 1998 K1500 did the same thing and this is what happened to mine

Everything relating to do with the wiring is in the steering column, if someone has cut the wires going into the column and taped them back together in order to pull the steering column out for service the wiring needs to be replaced. the good news is if that is your problem it will cost you no more that about 30 dollars to fix it, the bad news is you have to pull the column to replace it. I hope that shines some light on it for you.

Daytime running lights for 2002 chey impala don't work in the dark but work fine in daylight.


Its possible that this is a normal function for your car. They don't want you to use your daytime running lights at night because they are much dimmer than the standard headlights, so there is a sensor (usually near or in the windshield) that detects if it is dark outside. If its dark outside, the daytime running lights will not function, forcing you to use the standard headlights.

When pulling the headlight swich to on , the headlights, after a few seconds, go on bright and go right off. then it soon repeats the process again. Can not fine the fuse for the headlights.


There should be a 15amp fuse for each side. But if the headlights come on the fuses are working. The headlight switch and dimmer provide the ground circuit. So it could be the multi-function switch, or if you have daytime running lights, it could be that relay.

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.

You don't have daytime running lights but you do have automatic light control. The design engineers reasoned that you would not need fog lights unless you were running with headlights on under foggy conditions so these functions are controlled by logic and can't be separated without rewiring

Headlights wont work properly


Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.
