SOURCE: headlights on automatically

if you bought this truck used it may have been a commercial/fleet vehicle. and around the time of production the insurance industry determined that daytime headlights increased viability and reduced accidents.and they gave fleet insurers a discount . i am not sure if this was just a add on module that can be removed contact your local chevy dealer's parts dept.

SOURCE: Replaced stock bcm with used.

A used body control can be used in a vehicle other than the vehicle it was installed in. the body control module when first installed is programmed with the vehicle vin number. the vin number can not be changed was it was written to the BCM. the oprions can be always change in the BCM but not the VIN number. basically the used bcm you have installed has the vin number from the vehicle was installed in, now the vin number in the used BCM doesnt match all the other control modules

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

2002 Grand Marquis headlights won't turn off with switch, won't go out until vehicle is turned off


Might these be "driving lights"?
Cars with "driving lights" have lights that are supposed to stay on all the time the engine is running.
These lights not only look like headlights, in fact some cars even have the headlights themselves come on when the engine is running. Look as some more (several) 2002 Grand Marquis's and see if they are the same.
Be blessed.

Quest head lights won't turn off


The body computer controls the headlight relays based on input from the switches. There is a relay for high beam and one for low beam in a power distribution module in the engine compartment.
I don't know if the relays are available without buying the entire module. One of them could be stuck on.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and procedures to test the circuits.
In the mean time you should be able to pull the 50amp fuse for the headlights.

I cant turn off the headlights off while my 03 GMC Sierra Z71 is running, the manual switch does nothing unless the truck is turned off.


I have a 2003 GMC Sierra Z71 Extended Cab and the headlight switch won't turn off the headlights while the truck is running. When I got the truck the Photocell Sensor which is the black bubble that sits on the dash that tells the daytime running lights to turn off and on was down in the dash so I fished it out with my fingers and clipped it back in and it made the daytime running lights work. I still can't turn my headlights off while my truck is running though. The owner's manual says that I am able to do so. There's 2 light's on the switch by AUTO and the O for off that should light up? Is it my whole switch?

Headlights won' turn on on a 2006 subaru outback marker lights work


2006 Subaru Liberty 3.0 Blitzen, 52,000kms. It's unbelievable, both my low beams went out at once and when I checked it was both the globes had gone at once. Never has this happened on any other vehicle before, I've ordered a HID conversion kit over the net, hope that works well.

My headlights won't turn on, the yellow driving lights turn on but the headlamps won't. Also the lever that controls bright lights doesn't work but the turn signal and cruise control does.


First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

When I turn on the vehicle the headlights and windshield wipers come on and won't turn off. When I turn the key off there is a delay before it actually turns off and the headlights won't turn off.


This sounds like an issue with your ignition switch. Basically what is happening here is that you are shutting off your vehicle, but the ignition switch is not working correctly and is allowing certain accessories to stay on.
