Checking the electrical diagram in any aftermarket service manual would show you exactly where to make changes if you are satisfied with using low beams instead of auxilliary lower wattage bulbs, the addition of a relay that would turn on with the ignition and then be out of circuit when you turn on the lights for night driving to avoid changing how the high-low beams and the flash function works wouldn't be that difficult.
Anyone who can read electrical diagrams could show you how and where to cut & splice and there may be an empty relay socket in the car's panel for mounting it. There are often unused positions because of options not installed when new.

On my 98 blazer my daytime running lights stopped working idk what to do idk which fuse to check

If only the DRLs do not work, the problem may be that the DRL relay in the underhood bussed electrical center has failed.

Daytime running lights relay

no year, 1973? is first civic, see my confusion>?

are you in CANADA. DRL heaven?

check fuses first , as always.

DRL failure. there are many.

some cars even cut DRL for.

hand brake stuck on , or any brake failure.

or charge system failure, (so the battery stays working longer)

we use a voltmeter at the DRL module , checking all pins

to find out why its dead.

this is covered in the FSM how to test DRL.

ive defeated many DRL. but did yours used to work

or is this a new car ? to you?

we defeat them down here, us, frisky yankee\'s

got a voltmeter? handy?

2005 honda civic daylight are not working fuse are ok

DRL, are you in Canada?
Daytime, running lights.
did you pull the module to see the very common burned up pins?
plastic all ugly and burnt?

DRL module is just LOGIC.
it has inputs that must be good for it to work.
one hand brake, it must be off
the other is on many cars, Alternator not bad, it cuts DRL
so the battery charge is saved so you can drive with EFI not going dead so soon. (ECU/PCM needs DC power to run engine)

the fsm covers this
as does
use the schematic of DRL to see what pins need what logic state to work. if confused ask questions.

Day time Running Lights

For those of you thinking, "hey, mine doesn't have daytime running lamps!", it's because only models sold in Canada had them.
The DRL module is located on the front lower side of the power distribution center attached to the bracket .  The PDC is the black box just behind the battery, so it should be kind of sandwiched in there. As far as a diagnosis for them staying on, the manual only provides for info for DRLs that do not come on at all.  If changing the DRL doesn't fix the problem let me know and I will try and get you schematics and connection explanations.
