Question about 2000 GMC New Sierra 1500

1 Answer

The case where my daytime running light is housed collects water

When water collects, bulb blows. I checked the case (submerged in water) and it does not leak. All three bulbs have plastic cases with rubber gaskets. Where could the water be gettting in?

I just bought a 1991 acura integra and my drl light suddenly went out two days ago all the lights still work everything works but the drls


The daytime running lights work off the high beams. They shouldn't be blowing bulbs unless there is a charging system problem causing the voltage to be unregulated. If this were the case, other bulbs would burn out as well. The most likely cause is a defective daytime running light module failure. The module is grey and is located under the dash on the drivers side up to the left. It has a single plug with4-6 wires.

1996 chevy suburban high beams work, low beams and daytime running lights don't. checked all fuses none blown, dont know how to check relays except to replace each one, one at at a time.


with a test light back probe the green wire behind the low beam then if test light on = bulb defect
the blue one is for daytime running lights example : if 1 bulb is burn or open no daytime running lights
p.s. you need to have 2 bulbs the same or it won't work

NEED to change daytime running lights


YOU NEED TO RAISE THE HOOD,YOU HAVE TO REMOVE HEADLIGHT HOUSING BY TWISTING THE HEADLIGHT HOUSING MOUNTING RODS OUT OF THEIR CLIPS AND PULL UP THEM STRAIGHT UP TO DISENGAGE THE HOUSING FROM VECHICLE. WITH HEADLIGHT HOUSING OUT VECHICLE REMOVE LIGHT BULBS, YOU NEED TO WEAR CLEAR PAIR OF LATEX GLOVES WHEN HANDLING NEW HEADLIGHT BULBS BECAUSE HEADLIGHT BULBS ARE HALOGEN BULBS OILS FROM FINGERS OR HANDS CAN CAUSE HALOGEN BULBS OVERHEAT AND BLOW OUT.HALOGEN BULBS VERY EXPENSIVE THEY COST FROM $10.00 UP TO $20.00 OR MORE SO WHERE CLEAN GLOVES WHEN HANDLING BULBS.

1996 Windstar driver side headlight burned out just a few minutes after replacing. Went to high beam and it also burned out in a few minutes.


first thing to check for is if there water in light housing alot times the seals will go bad and allow water to collect in light soon as water hits the hot bulb it blows bulb
if this is case u have two options cheap way is to drill a small hole in lower corner of light so water drains
option 2 is to replace light housing

if there no water in light housing make sure when u install bulb you don't touch the clear part of the bulb at ALL the oil from your hands will cause the bulb to blow u do accidentally touch bulb clean with rubbing alcohol

The dashboard daytime running lights indicator symbol has quit lighting up in my 2003 L200 saturn sedan. The lights do work just not the indicator. I looked in the manual and saw the relay ciruit , but no...


The running light indicator bulb may have failed, remove the cluster and check the bulb. If the bulb has a white housing the part number is 21019273 if the bulb has a yellow housing the part number is21019274. You may have to get the bulb from a GM/Saturn dealer. Thank you. PS There is not a fuse for the individual bulb.

Drl and high beams dont work


Check the bulbs -- the daytime running lamps use the highbeams on the resistor -- There are two filliments per bulb one high; one low. If both high beam filliments are out nothing will work....replace bulbs if this is the case.

Fuses keep blowing


I do not have the diagram and will be kind of hard to find, but first i'd check the bulb's housing first and foremost, as in most cases where the fuse shorts all the time, it's just because the housing/casing/lens is not sealed anymore and water comes into it and shorts the socket of the bulb, causing the fuse to burn. If everything is OK and there is no water coming into the housing, let me know and i'll do what i can to find some diagrams for you.

Any GM dealer or ac delco supplier should be able to get you a bulb socket. You can try Acdelco.com also. Be sure to repair the leak in the lense so it doesn't happen again.

2002grand am daytime running lights


99 - 04 grand am.

I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.
