Question about Cars & Trucks
When i turn the car on, the daytime running lights are not working. I had the battery recently replaced-could that have caused the problem? Or where is the fuse for these lights?
There should be a DRL relay or module in the engine compartment. This relay gets power from the headlight switch and the gauges fuse. If the fuse were blown your gauges would be dead.
I would check the relay to see if it is working. You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagram and test procedure.

The Toyota Service Bulletin is 059633, dated March 13, 2003. My 2003 Corolla has the same problem. When the lights were on this morning after a very cold night, I jiggled the headlamp switch and sure enough, the headlights turned on and off. I found that the lights can be kept off if the switch is pushed forward and left in the "high beam" position when the car is off and the weather is expected to be cold. This is easier than pulling the fuse every time, until the switch can be replaced. It worked for me. Hope this helps.

99 - 04 grand am.
I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.
The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.

DRL's can be added simply by adding a 20 amp fuse into an empty slot in the fuse box.

Just hard wire the lights into anything that is hot when the car is running. If your looking for some kind of alternate solution please let me know. Also did you want them on also when the headlights are off? You can also hard wire them with a switch inside the cab and that way you can flip the switch whenever you would like.

Testimonial: "I solved the problem by pinning-out the connector for the headlight switch on the turn signal arm. It just took time, solder, and some electrical tape"
When your VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) light comes on, it means your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you're driving on an icy or wet, slippery road, and take a turn too sharp or accelerate too quickly, the vehicle will automatically reduce acceleration or apply pressure to the brakes to prevent the car from losing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to slow down - or to be extra careful. Be safe!
