2000 Silverado I just bought has running lights but I cant find a switch or how to turn them on. My automatic head lights work great. When I cut my headlights off in the daytime I can not figure out how they are suppose to activate. Thanks Tim
.Lights only come on when vehicle is in drive. There is no switch for it. If the lights still dont work check the bulbs,They go bad all the time and you may find a bad light socket. When you pull the bulb out the socket will look burnt and probably need replaced.I run into this problem frequently. You have to replace the bulb with the same number bulb you have .

Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again
It sounds like you may have blown a fuse the tail lights and dash lights are usually on the same fuse. Do you have the owners manual? That will show you where the fuse boxes are located and which fuse does what. If you find a blown fuse and it blows another one right away, there's a problem in the wiring. You'll have to get it checked bt a mechanic.
check to see if something is blocking the daylight sensor on the dash. If it is not being blocked check to see if the relay for the automatic lights is stuck. If any of these issues are happening then the headlights would be on switching off the daytime running lights
REMOVE THE HEAD LIGHT SWITCH AND CHECK FOR A BURNED CONNECTOR AT THE SWITCH, IF IT IS BURNED OR DISCOLORED REPLACE THE CONNECTOR AND THE HEAD LIGHT SWITCH TOGETHER, THE REPAIR CONNECTORE IS AVIL FROM YOUR LOCAL GM DEALER, THE SWITCH CAN BE BOUGHT FROM MOST AUTO PARTS STORES LIKE NAPA OR CARQUEST
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
