Can't get the daytime running lights to shut off even when the car is off?? Is there a fuse of some kind or something i'm doing wrong?? They should go off when you put on the emergency brake and that's not working now??

do not know the kind of car, but on my expedition there is a fuse that just runs the daytime lights, I removed it and now the lights only come on when I turn them on and off when I turn them off, check your owners manual for the correct fuse, this fuse was in the fusebox under the hood, good luck.

Simply put it sounds like you have something draining the battery, the daytime running lights came out way before 2001. I have a 98 and there are daytime running lights on mine. When the vehicle is running there should be a green light in your cluster in the top left corner, that comes on whenever you start the truck. that signal also will shut off when you actually turn your headlights on. if there are any accessories plugged in or running live, lights, amp/subs, xm radio, car charger for a cell phone. Anything like this could be draining the battery, along with interior light left on. Check everything make sure all is either unplugged, disconnected, or turned off. That should about solve the problem... hopefully. Good Luck!
Well...lets start with the obvious. Check fuses and NEVER piggyback any stereo or security stuff into their fuses...you dont want the lights to shut down during a night drive!! Check under the hood for a relay center...also has some fuses there as well.
The Daytime Running Lamps are a "straight through wiring configuration". Doubt it even goes through a headlight switch at all. But the regular lights do. Unless you've worked on the front of the car and forgot to plug the headlights back in, do this... Turn the light switch on...looking at the instrument cluster , can you make the high-beam-indicator light come on? As you rotate the headlight switch knob...does the instrument panel lights brighten or dim? You probably have a faulty headlight switch...auto stores have them...they simply plug in.
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.
I had this issue with my 1999 C1500. I had to jump my truck a couple of times, because I left the inside light on and I found when I did this my daytime running lights worked briefly. I wondered why, but didn't give it much thought. I had to replace my battery a couple of months ago and my daytime running lights started working all the time. Even though my battery would start my vehicle, run the interior components, etc., it didn't have enough voltage for the daytime lights. Check your battery voltage under a load, see if it helps.
