After a few times the light never came back on and never flashed anymore. I decided to change the relay and when I started the truck again the same thing append the light on the dash came on started to flash and went off and never came back on anymore.And my daytime lights are not working.Can somebody help me to fix that problem.

Just had same problem. After ruling out easy checks like parking brake switch, and park shift selector switch, It was a burned out resistor that is located inside the front left fender. Take off the front tire, remove the inner fender liner, the ceramic resistor is towards the front. It crumbled when I removed it, Could only get replacement from dealer for about $65.

While it is running in park, set your emergency brake then disengage it 3 times, this should clear it up. I ran into this on a Saturn and whether it was the sensor in the parking brake or perhaps it had been on just a notch but not enough to make the brake light on the dash board come on I am not sure, but this fixed it.

Hiya
It's a signal that tells you the low-beam headlight bulb has burnt-out....the green headlight logo only works when both low-beam bulbs are good when the key in ignition is turned 'on'.
When you plan to replace the burnt-out bulb, here's how:

IF it's the headlight's light bulb you want to access to pull out old bulb and install new bulb, here it is:
You know where the 3 bolts that secure the headlight body on the frame, also pull out the 4 black plastic clips that holds the grille-it's located on the top grille brackets (it's close to the top radiator area)
When you pull out the clips, gently pull the grille away from the top frame, then pull the headlight body away carefully to allow your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlamp body, find the wire that connects to the headlight bulb, use your fingers to feel the plastic 'collar ring' around the socket and twist it counterclockwise (just like unscrewing a lid off the jar) and pull the socket out with the bulb.
This space is tight for your fingers so it takes patient to get the job done.

My 2008 equinox daytime running lights will not work. works on high beam


you will need to replace the day time running light relay as it is what changes the voltage to the high beam lights for the running lights.

The lights of my equinox are turning every time i started the car even at day time


These are daytime running lights. They run at lower voltage than your "nightime" lights, but use the same bulb.

I personally find them annoying.

More than likely your car was built in Canada where they are mandatory. In US they are not.

You can disable them by removing the relay (under hood) that says "DRL" . Look at fuse diagram in owner manual or under fuse cap.

Chevy 2005 Equinox, day time running light when out, are they controlled by a fuse?


The Daytime running lights are controlled by a relay under the hood that says "DRL"

I would just pull the relay and not worry about it. daytime running lights are just an annoyance.

LIghts shut off while driving and so did the dashboard lights, they will not come back on.


Seeing how I dont know if this is during the night or day, most berettas have daytime and automatic nighttime lights. The dashboard and the lights are connected together and if the sensor is saying that its daytime they are going to switch. I suggest checking your daytime running light sensor to see if it is getting to much saturation of light while driving at night. This could be confusing the computer and turning off the lights. Cant guarentee that this is fix it but its a good place to start.

ok you said you have replace the bulbs, i believe you. your problem is still the bulbs, use type HS 905, both bulbs must be the same make and model, or else one will have the same problem your having. one of the two headlamp bulbs has blown, thats why the daytime running lamp is flashing.

Daytime running lights do not come on


Hiya...
When this happens, it means one or two of the halogen headlight bulb(s) has been burnt-out.
Do this quick and easy self-test:
Turn on the headlight switch to LOW and see if you see one (or none) turns on...you'll know one or two lightbulb(s) need to be replaced....this is why the green headlight logo flashed to tell you that a bulb has just burnt-out.
You'll need to remove the 4 black plastic clips that holds the top grille bracket frame onto the top metal frame that's facing the top radiator area.
If you know which headlight's bulb need replacing, just remove the 3 bolts...two are on top and one is by the side (close to radiator area)
Then you pull the grille toward you gently to allow your hand to access behind the grille and headlight area to reach the white socket that's connected to the headlight bulb.
This requires some patient as it's a tight area for your fingers to wiggle the socket off.
When the new lightbulb is installed, the green headlight logo will appear in the instrument panel when you start the engine.
That'll help!

Dashboard lights went out while braking


the dashboard will be need to be taken apart to change the bulb. A fuse alone won't fix it. Also, the day time running lights are not meant to go off. They are a standard safety feature.
