Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

DRL relay - electrical problems

When the DRL relay is in place it buzzes - even after the car is shut off. I also sometimes see the orange lights in front flickering. Wipers also experience power loss from time to time.

Last night heard noise inside engine - spot over the head gasket was warm (snow had melted in two spots on hood long after car was shut off)

any ideas?

    Ive tried a couple different relays in the slot - same thing happens. It also doesn't explain why the turn lights (the orange lights on the outside front of the car) flickered.

    And it wouldn't explain why sometimes the wipers will work when the car is started and why they do not move on other occasions after the car has been running/is warmed up.

    Any thoughts?

  • forsythe_db Dec 18, 2008

    thanks for the response - how do I fix the wiper contact thing?

    Haynes doesn't publish a book on Accents newer than 1998 and I need a step-by-step process - including the name of the part to pick up at the local Cdn Tire.

    thanks again

    not as much as I would have liked - needed more info on the part name etc - have limited skills at auto repair - can do it if I know the steps -

the drl buzzing and wipers not working r two different issues as both the things have two different control modules and wirings may be changing them will make it work properly.Most relays are located under the hood in the fuse box or on the inside of the driver side door panel they are labeled so its not hard to tell which relay is which, as far as replacing them goes all you have to do is remove it (similar to a fuse) and replace it with a new one its as simple as that. It would however be a good idea to remove your ground cable on your battery so you don't hurt yourself or others and so you don't fry your ecu in the car.

Check for a loose or missing ground wire/strap. snow melting even long after engine off is normal.

If the relay buzzes it needs to be replaced.... could also be that the light that comes on when you lift the hood is staying on as well

Well the relay buzzing is almost certainly due to a defective DLR module, this assumes the light work in the DRL mode. the wipers would be the wiper switch has a bad contact, very common issue. As far as the snow melting not sure what you mean or think may be wrong, it would seem normal to me.

    I would advise u to post all the info on this problem, include what u have done, it helps us to help u. Thanks. Based on your note about the side lights I want u to check the headlight grounds, make sure they are clean and tigh, given them a turn to dislodge any corrosion that may be under the connector to the car's sheet metal, the grounds will be near the headlights, most likely a black wire from each light/

Highbeam lights very dull on 1999 Geo prism? Put new wiring plug(?) Any idea what the problem is? on and change dimmer relay with no luck! Ant


are you in USA.?
are you in Canada with mandatory DRL lighting?
we can not guess that,
DRL car is complex.
DRL has a 20 pin module just for DRL, crazy complex.
the FLASH on DRL grounds the HL directly bypassing DRL relay
so is super important the FLASH test.
There are 2 systems used, the toyota uses hot all time headlights
(via the HL relay and dimmer relay)


I need this?
is it dim on high, yes,
is it dim on low, no.
is it dim , when you push the lever to FLASH.??????
if flash works we know why it fails. see? (paths)
see?
if high beams and FLASH are dim, then DRL relay bad.
(can be other failures., for sure even wires bad)

its just a:
Toyota Corolla. Gen 6 to 8. (in snake skins)
if you have voltmeter this is child's play , really
finding point of voltage drop tells you what is wrong
find a shop with sparks guy? be best or by a meter and learn>?
guessing can take a long long weekend.
is labor time not a matter to you or down time?
ok I pulled up your cars HL schematic.
DRL is super complex
id pull the DRL module and look for burned pins
they love to do that DRL does.
so got DRL
and does FLASH work right>?

I need clarification on 2003 Chev Malibu DRL problems:


That piece you think is a ceramic DRL module is a resistor , When in DRL mode voltage to the low beam headlamps circuit goes through that resistor dimming the headlamps from low beam to daytime running lamps . It sounds to me like you need a new resistor ,but without doing some electrical testing it could be a lot of things . The DRL relay in the under hood fuse box could have a problem , could be the BCM - body control module , the ambient light sensor etc... Here is how daytime running lamps work .
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The ambient light sensor is a light sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes to the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal it will either turn on the daytime running lights (DRL) or the headlights. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. With the headlight switch in the OFF position, the headlights will either be turned ON or OFF, after an approximate 30 second delay depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The HTR A/C IGN fuse in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will either turn on or off the daytime running lamps, depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G101. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate.

Where is the DRL relay located?


There is no DRL relay , has a lamp control module .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) activate under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.


?€¢
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.

When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S 1994 headlights are staying on when switch is off. Took switch out and still headlights are on. Thinking it might be a relay. Need location of it, if so the problem.


Is it high beam or low beams that are on? Do you have drl? Can't rule out problem with drl module? The headlamp switch has an internal circuit breaker, no relay. The diagram is part of headlamps/drl.

My interior lights will not work all fuses are good and I have replaced the light switch and the bcm what else can it be


Diagnosis by parts replacement is getting a little frustrating and expensive is it? Did you bother to scan the BCM for fault codes before replacing it? Have you scanned your new BCM for fault codes?
Have you verified proper operation of the Inadvertent Power Relay? Have you verified proper operation of the courtessy lamp relay? Have you checked to see if the BCM can command the courtessy lamp relay on? Is the BCM recieving power from the Inadvertent Power relay? Are your courtessy lamps recieving power from the Inadvertent Power relay? Is the courtessy lamp relay providing a good ground for your interior lights?...These are just SOME of the possibilities - that is what DIAGNOSIS is for...

Hi...I have a 2003 Honda CRV and intermittently my DRL starts buzzing. If I turn my headlight on the buzzing stops. Al l the lights appear to be fine. Do you have any suggestion. Thanks...David


The problem as reported by many others on the internet appears to be with the DRL relay located under the hood. If you can find it (check the owner's manual), then it might be a matter of taking it out and resoldering the connectors in the base. Some people suggest taking the relay out and using the normal lights - depending on what the road rules require.

Finally, you may want to buy a new relay.

Drl starts buzzing right headlight does not come on


the buzzing is the relay driven by the daytime running light module.
the module is under the left side of the dash by the fuse box,but above it and more to the middle.right above your left knee about 8 inches or so.

99 Honda Odyssey daytime running lights working intermittently


I had the same sort of problem. I removed the DRL relay from behind the glove box, (a dark gray box, marked as DRL RElay, A screw driver will easily remove the cover from around the plug. Removed the circuit board, and resoldered about twlve connections, they looked brownish around them which indicates overheating, as a result of greater resistance from a poor connection. Fixed in 1/2 hour, from removal to driving.

Day time running light problem


The problem with the DRL issue describd in the above posts is the DRl module(it needs to be replaced). The buzzing relay and intermittent on/off of passenger side DRl are indicators that the module needs to be replaced.
