Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

The headlights for my 2008 Chevy Silverado Diesel won't Shut off. Even with the key off they just stay on until my battery dies. I have to pull the fuse for the DRL to turn them off. I tried swapping out the headlight control knob mechanism with one that I know works and it still does it. I'm thinking it could be a relay for the DRL but I don't know where its located since its not in the fuse block under the hood. Do you know where it could be or what I can try next?

SOURCE: headlights do not work on 96 camaro.

by looking at the manual for my 97 Camaro and if you say that the switch is good then that helps narrow it down a lot, because i found a circuit breaker... not a fuse!...located inside the headlamp switch itself. good luck and let me know if you find it... c.b's. are usually resetable please let me know if you fix it because i have the same car and it might go out on me someday..thanks man! also you can see if your getting voltage on the yellow wire when the switch is in the "head" position..if its not there, then its almost a guaranty that its the c.b.

Navigation system / Stereo won't turn off.


Might try pushing the power button on the radio instead of letting the battery die. Look at the functions of the body control module to see if it controls the radio power. If it does, then replace the module.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

My 03 chevy monte carlo has a po102 code and I know the mass flow sensor connector is bad but will this cause the battery to drain for no reason? I hear a clicking noise coming from the gove compartment...


If you have a light in the glove compartment that might be staying on. I would start pulling fuses one at a time until the clicking stops. Pull a fuse, still clicking, put it back and pull another. Repeat until you find the circuit causing the problem. That will narrow down where you need to look.
