Chances are you will need to replace the fuse becasue the burnt socket shorted out and blew it but dont just check the one listed as day time running check all fuses it is not uncommon for power to run through other circuts and wiring.

2001 GMC Jimmy-DRL do not work, headlights work when manually turned on. Tried owners manuel suggestions (press dome overide button three times in 6 seconds) did not help.


This may be oversimplified, many times both of the DRL lamps are burnt out. Many people don't notice till the second bulb fails. Pull out one of the headlamps and verify condition of bulb.

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

How to change light on front day time lights


Open the hood. Pull up on the retaining pins that hold the headlamp assembly into place.
2 Pull straight up on the headlamp assembly carefully, as all of the bulb wiring will be attached to the rear of the assembly.3 Locate the DRL bulb in the headlamp assembly, which will may be the socket at the inboard position in the assembly.4 Turn the DRL bulb socket in a counterclockwise direction and pull it straight out of the back of the headlamp assembly. (Note: Some vehicles may utilize a release lever that needs to be depressed before the socket can be turned.) 5 Pull the DRL bulb straight out of the socket and discard it. Push a fresh bulb into its place until it is fully seated.6 Push the socket back into the rear of the headlamp assembly and turn it in a clockwise direction until it locks into place.7 Place the headlamp assembly back into position on the front of the vehicle. Push the retaining pins back down until they lock into place.

I got a 2004 chevy trailblazer 4.2l. DRL/lowbeams don't work. All other lights (park lights, high beams, turn signal) work. Driver side DRL bulb blew. Both went out at the same time. Replaced both...


If it is anything like my 04 GMC Sierra, there is a relay panel under the hood. In that underhood box where you found the fuses, there are also relays. They pop out (the diagram is on the lid of the box). After the GMC hit 200k, the relays started going out. The high beams are on a relay, the lowbeams are on a different one. You can pop one out and replace it with the horn or foglight relay if you want to check it out. I am betting that the DRL bulb just happened to go at the same time. Mine go out regularly..I would say around every 10-15k miles. I don't know if this helps, it is just something that I have run across with a similar vehicle.

What is the DRL warning light on the dashboard of my 2007 Honda CRV?


On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.

The day/night light is out on the divers side, i have replace the bulb..what next


If you are talking about the Daytime Running Lamp, most often if a new bulb does not correct the condition it will need a new DRL lamp socket replaced. The socket is the thing that holds the bulb in place and allows 12 volts to the bulb. The intense heat of the bulb causes an internal open circuit in the socket itself.

REPLACE TAHOE DRL BULB SOCKET


You'll have to order the socket from the GM dealer. I've tried some common park/tail light sockets from Napa, etc. and none fit the lens housing. Part# for my 2004 GMC Sierra is 15306157. (Yours may be different, but probably not)
Remove the headlight lens (unclip & flip the two black steel rods towards you and pull them straight up & out). The lens should almost fall out if the bulb wires didn't hold it in!
There are only two wires, and since incandescent bulbs are not polarity-sensitive, they can go either way without mixing them up. Just cut & strip the old socket's wires, and strip & crimp the new socket on. ****-type crimp connectors were even included with the socket.

99 chevy silverado 1500 running lights.....


Remove the fuse! The fuse box under the hood has the DRL (daytime running light) fuse. The underside of its lid should tell you which one. Either that, or just remove the bulbs from their sockets.
If ALL the lights (head, tail, dash,etc. are coming on all the time), then those aren't DRL's. There's a light sensor (little round black dome) on top of the dashboad in the middle front nearest the windshield. They sometimes fall down inside the dash (where it's dark!) and this triggers all the lights to come on when the ignition is on.
