If your talking about day time running lamps. There is a switch on the dash to shut them off. If the vehicle is built for Canada...you cant shut them off.

My high beam on left side not working also my daytime running lights not working. 2002 saturn s series I checked fuses and they are good also new bulb


In the diagram, top wires to headlamps are voltage, bottoms wires are ground.
Your dimmer/headlamp switch are on the ground circuit for headlamps. Voltage to headlamps are hot all the time, use a testlite or something and check for voltage at headlamp connector. To check proper ground wire, use a test lite connected to battery voltage, touch the ground wire terminal, if the lite comes on, at least the ground is good enough to turn on test lamp.
There may be a problem with multi-function switch?

No low beam. Good high beam. No day lights. What's wrong?


No on the fuse . The LH HDLP and RH HDLP fuse in the fuse block - under hood, supply battery positive voltage to both low and high beam lamps at all times. For manual operation, when the headlamp switch is in the ON position, the headlamp switch supplies ground directly to the headlamps and to the body control module (BCM) on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. The BCM uses this signal to determine if the conditions are present to illuminate the daytime running lamps or park lamps.
The headlamps may be turned on 2 different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the ON position, for manual operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position activating automatic lamp control (ALC).For ALC operation, the BCM receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under low light conditions the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit energizing the headlamp control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground through the headlamp switch to the headlamps and the BCM on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. When the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit it also grounds the park lamp relay control circuit illuminating the park lamps. The headlamp relay is grounded at G203.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The low beam headlamps operate at reduced intensity when in daytime running lamps (DRL) mode. The ground circuit to the switch side of the DRL relay has a resistor in-line to reduce the intensity of the low beam headlamps for DRL operation. The body control module (BCM) receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under daylight conditions the BCM grounds the DRL relay control circuit energizing the DRL control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground directly to the low beam headlamps and to the BCM on the headlamp low beam signal circuit. The low beam headlamps now illuminate with reduced intensity. The DRL relay is grounded at G203. Any time the headlamps are illuminated the DRL will not illuminate. Manual park lamps do not effect DRL operation.

Why does my 1999 chevy malibu headlights turn on by them self in middle of night


You have a gremlin ! No , just kidding . No it's not the ignition switch ! The headlamps right an left have there own fuse in the under hood fuse box . LH HDLP - RH HDLP . Power direct to the head lamps an they ground through the headlamp switch when placed in high or low beams . Next time they come on wiggle the headlamp switch an see if they go out ! Does your vehicle have auto lights ? Day time running lamps ? The BCM - body control module controls Automatic lamp control !
Battery voltage is applied to the headlamp bulbs at all times. The headlamps are controlled by supplying the ground for the lamps through the turn/headlamp switch assembly or the body control module (BCM). When the turn/headlamp switch is in the ON position, the ground is supplied through CKT 150.
The BCM controls the daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity under the following conditions:
?€¢
The engine is running.


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


?€¢
The normal headlamps are turned OFF.

The BCM activates the system by grounding CKT 592. This action energizes the DRL relay. This condition allows a reduced voltage to flow to the headlamps. When the headlamp switch is turned to ON, the headlamps operate normally.
The parking brake provides an input to the BCM. When the parking brake is engaged, the DRL remain disabled until the parking brake is disengaged.

I have replaced the headlamps but dipped headlights still not working. What else could it be? fuse? Thanks, Euan


By "dipped" headlamps, do you mean the "low" beam headlamps? If so, the dimmer switch [located on the turn signal stalk] may be bad. Have you checked for power to the low beam wires at the headlamp electrical sockets? BMWs, unlike most cars, do have fuses for the headlamps, so yes, it is possible that those fuses have blown.

How to change light on front day time lights


Open the hood. Pull up on the retaining pins that hold the headlamp assembly into place.
2 Pull straight up on the headlamp assembly carefully, as all of the bulb wiring will be attached to the rear of the assembly.3 Locate the DRL bulb in the headlamp assembly, which will may be the socket at the inboard position in the assembly.4 Turn the DRL bulb socket in a counterclockwise direction and pull it straight out of the back of the headlamp assembly. (Note: Some vehicles may utilize a release lever that needs to be depressed before the socket can be turned.) 5 Pull the DRL bulb straight out of the socket and discard it. Push a fresh bulb into its place until it is fully seated.6 Push the socket back into the rear of the headlamp assembly and turn it in a clockwise direction until it locks into place.7 Place the headlamp assembly back into position on the front of the vehicle. Push the retaining pins back down until they lock into place.

Can I program the automatic headlights to always shut off when the ignition is shut off - day or night?


I have a 1997 cadillac deville that has both 'daytime running lamps' when put into gear and 'twilight sentinel' which turns the headlamps and parking lamps on at night, and goes off during the day or when it is bright enough.

There is an adjustable delay for the twilight sentinel to turn the headlights off after the ignition key is removed and it is night time.
---
I had the 'daytime running lamps' installed on a 1990 Cadillac Deville that turns the headlamps only on when the ignition key is switched to on with an aftermarket module. The headlamps are about 70% or so as bright as the regular twiilight sentinel headlamps and parking lights and are designed to go on during the day.

The twilight sentinel overrides this feature when it gets dark outside.

I had the daytime running lamps installed by an auto electric shop that specializes in electrical systems, alarms, stereos, etc.

Does this help?

Day time running lamps


The day time running lamps are your headlights, the parking lights also conventionally known as the running lights serve no purpose during daylight hours and as such are not necessary in the daytime, and are not illuminated by the DRL module. The DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module illuminates the headlamps in a slightly dimmer state than night time dim headlamps, but does not turn on the conventional running lights. The only way you'll get conventional running lights during the day is to turn them on manually. I just reviewed the wiring schematics for that system, and the DRL relay bypasses the dimmer switch when active and prevents high beam operation, and feeds current directly to the low beam headlights, there is no connection to the parking light circuit from the DRL module wiring.
