Question about 2000 Chevrolet Metro

Open Question

2000 metro battery and daytime running light indicator flashes...

My 2000 Metro's battery light came on and while it's on the day time running light indicator goes off. Then the battery light goes off and the running light indicator comes back on. They alternate constantly, with the battery light coming on longer than the daytime running light indicator. The headlights themselves flash on and off as well. I suspect a the headlight circuit or a relay. I don't have a working multimeter right now so I haven't been able to tell if the alternator output varies. With the headlights switched on the battery light stays on. It's pretty bizarre. Any ideas would be appreciated.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Headlight problem

We had the same exact symptoms right down to the clicking noise under the dash. A friend who is a mechanic provided all the wiring diagrams, etc and when we pulled the dash we found that there was another enclosure behind the dash.....we stopped there.......

....waited a few days, did some research and decided since a replacement headlight switch was about $50.00 the easiest route was to to swap that out hoping it would fix the problem....was also a very easy installation.

Turns out that fixed the problem. Good luck!!!

Hiya...
When this happens, it means one or two of the halogen headlight bulb(s) has been burnt-out.
Do this quick and easy self-test:
Turn on the headlight switch to LOW and see if you see one (or none) turns on...you'll know one or two lightbulb(s) need to be replaced....this is why the green headlight logo flashed to tell you that a bulb has just burnt-out.
You'll need to remove the 4 black plastic clips that holds the top grille bracket frame onto the top metal frame that's facing the top radiator area.
If you know which headlight's bulb need replacing, just remove the 3 bolts...two are on top and one is by the side (close to radiator area)
Then you pull the grille toward you gently to allow your hand to access behind the grille and headlight area to reach the white socket that's connected to the headlight bulb.
This requires some patient as it's a tight area for your fingers to wiggle the socket off.
When the new lightbulb is installed, the green headlight logo will appear in the instrument panel when you start the engine.
That'll help!

Low beams not working but high beams are on a 2000 chevy metro


The headlight relay provides power to the dimmer relay, then power goes thru a fuse for each light for each circuit (4). The low beam fuses are in fuse block 2. The dimmer relay is controlled by the daytime running light module. The headlight and dimmer switches send signals to the DRL module. You may need a shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

I have a 2000 chevy metro that has a rough idle and check engine flashes


The flashing light is indicating a misfire which is what you are describing. When is the last time you had a tune up? Most likely just replacing the spark plugs/wires will fix it.

Running lights,high beam but no low beam headlights. Has daytime running lights but when you turn the headlights on ,no low beam but they work with the day time running lights?


I would check the switch which is separate from the module that controls the daytime running lamps.
Check for fuses blown for the headlamps.

Also, check for the relay operation by following the wires back to it, if so equipped.

Check for a good ground for the headlamp wires that you follow back to make sure they are solidly connected to a ground.

Good luck on this repair.

most likely a light is staying on somewhere. Remove the light in your glove box, as the most likely culprit and see if the battery is good.
