Question about 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS
Lights quit coming on automatically. I replaced optical sensor under the defroster vent but no help. There is surely a control module this sensor feeds a signal to, but where is it? Lights work fine when operated from dash panel switch.
There is a relay under the dash, on a fuse block with a black plastic cover. Usually the cover is labeled "Fuse and relay center" or "Power and relay center". Inside you'll find several large blade style fuses and quite a few relays. There are normally two or three relays associated with your lighting. In many mid nineties and up GM products, you have a relay for rear lighting, one for front lighting, and a separate relay labeled "DRM" or "DRL". You're looking for that one. This is the daytime running light relay. Odds are that relay has burnt out and needs replaced.
