Question about 2004 Pontiac Sunfire
High and low beams are working fine. after starting car everything is fine, but when you put car into gear (automatic trans) the DRL indicator and headlights flash rapidly about 5 times, then service light with wrench symbol comes on and stays on. High and low beams still work, but day time running lights do not. this malfunction started when there was a poor connection at the neg battery terminal. the connection was so poor that the car would not start. i cleaned the terminal, reconnected and car started fine after that, but now the DRL do not work as mentioned. I also have a remote starter that will not work now. it is an astrostart 2106. I turned the remote switch off with battery disconnected and back on with battery connected, to reset the remote, but still doesn't work. it attempts to start car 3 times and then shuts down.

well if the daytime running lights flash fast then stop that means there is a problem with the DRLs,usually a burnt out bulb,,check tha firstif all ok check if there are any trouble codes in the computer

Hello and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!
