Dashboard shows "DRL"

Occasionally, recently more often though, I will get a signal on my dashboard "DRL". I have no clue what it means and if that indicates a serious problem. I would greatly appreciate any advice!

The "DRL" is "Daytime Running Lights". Does the Indicator come on OLNY during Bright Daylight? Check to see if Both Daytime Running Lights are lit in the Daytime. This requires a person to be belted into the Drivers Seat and place the vehicle in DRIVE with the engine running. If ether DRL Light is out you first substitute a New Bulb and test again. It is best to replace both bulbs with the manufacturers specified bulb. It may also be that a fuse has blown. Check your owners manual for location and type. If a fuse is blown check that the wires feeding these lights are free of defects such as worn through insulation and have come in contact with chassis components which are at Ground Potential. Tape any damaged wires and re-route them so they cannot Grouns out again. Also check that all Ground leads from the sockets have Zero Resistance to Chassis Ground.

If you cannot perform these tasks I recommend you take it to a Certified Technician.

This indicates the "Driving Lights" are defective. Check your sidelights to see if they are actually on when you want them on. Check the connections for corrosion - especially the earthpoints, as sometimes they corrode underneath which is difficult to spot.
Another area to check is the stalk, and obviously the fuses and bulbs themselves.

This should rectify the problem for you.

Signal lights on dashboard

I would start at the left brake light. Check the bulb and wiring. Your brake light could be grounding through the blinker circuit.

Electrical issues - Dashboard occasionally turns off completely even though engine can run just fine.. when dashboard turns off the hand "break" turns on without the hand break being applied. Someone...

Sounds like a bad ground somewhere... check all the wiring under the hood, make sure everything is tight. A bad ground can cause all sorts of weird problems.

Check your DRL relay that is located in the fuse box. Also check the connector under the battery box for corrosion. (Not a smart place to put a connector) GM really messed up with the wiring on the 98-00 cavaliers headlights.
