Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
The daytime running lights do not come on. I have ruled out the parking brake switch and transmission park switch as being the problem. Is there anything else that I can check easily? The green indicator light on the dash does flash on and off about 4 times then goes out.
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.
