    I HAVE A 99 SILVERADO MY HEADLIGHTS STAY ON ALL THE TIME .IT ACTS LIKE THE SENSOR IS NOT WORKING

    I know that on my 99 Burb it has DRL (daytime running lights) so they are on all the time but not full power. If you put your trucks parking brake on and they go off, that is DRL. I f you don't want them on, pull the fuse for them but you will still have the little light for them on the dash stay on.



    Hope that helps.

Gm's body control module will recognise your request for head lights automatically, if you've already checked drl, next thing to do would be to leave the head light switch on after shutting off the ignition for 10 seconds then shut them off and remove the key, then start it back up to see, you can also do the opposite start the truck, turn on the lights, turn off the lights, turn off the truck and pull the key, start it back up and see,, This procedure may have more to do with the delay security head light feature, but it all ties in together

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.

there is a small sensor on the dash of your truck if this is covered or excessively dirty it will keep your auto lights on. if you press the dome light over ride button in and out three times this will turn your lights off.

My right front headlight goes off at night but stays on during the day ? is this a fuse problem or a sensor problem or wiring problem ?


I would check the connection at the bulb. Check the wires and connector by wiggling them with lights on to see if they go off. Sounds like loose wire at connector. Daytime running lights are on a separate fuse and wiring.

Start by setting your auto headlight switch to off if this solves it replace your headlight switch If your car is equipped with daytime running lights there could be a short bridging them with your auto head lights look for broken or frayed wires do this also if you have installed or had someone install an aftermarket stereo or speakers/sub woofer, amplifier. Good Luck with this

Insterment panel light out.


When you say you replace the fuse 3 times, is because the fuse have blown? If so, there is a short in the system and will need expert help to trace the short.
Does the day time running light stay on during day light hours and does the lights comes on without activating the headlight switch during night hours when the park brake is released?
If so, this of course is normal condition. If not then the day time running light circuit needs diagnosing along with the body module circuit. Headlight switch will also need to be tested.
