Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala

Open Question

2000 Impala 3.8 liter headlights will not work. All running lights work.

I'm having problems with the headlights. All running lights (park lights work) however the low beams will not come on at all and the high beam lights only work if you hold back on the low beam/high beam lever on the column. All the interior lights work. The automatic daylight high beams work only during the day. Also eventhough the headlights are not working the alert bell dings if you leave the headlight switch in the on position when exiting the car. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

SOURCE: 2002 Impala, headlights work however they blink

This may be the start of a worse problem that the Impala eventually developes. The Body Control Module has a design flaw along with the Passlock anti-theft system. You may get away with just replacing the BCM for now. It needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer and the car will not start if you replace the BCM without reprogramming it. I would also recommend against replacing it with a remanufactured one. Repair cost is going to be around $500 at the dealer.

If the Passlock system is also at fault, add another $500 for a new ignition switch and cylinder. If you haven't experienced random starting problems yet, they are coming soon. When you turn the key, nothing happens. I thought my 2002 Impala may have been immune to these problems that I've heard about constantly, however, at 90,000 miles, it became "possessed". The symptoms started slowly and got worse. Beside the interior lights flashing like strobs in the middle of the night (while the car was not running), the headlights would occasionally click off and on a few times while I was driving at night.

The relay switch you hear clicking is the Battery Rundown Protection relay. I'm suprised your battery hasn't drained to the point where the car will not start in the morning.

SOURCE: My headlights on my 2000 monte carlo does not work

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.

SOURCE: 2000 impala-low beams don't work but high does

sounds like the problem is the dimmer switch, get a price on the dimmer switch. If you have to, get one at a junk yard . It's cheaper.

Head lilghts only come on in the day, not at night. Only my parking (amber) lights come on.


During the day, those are your DRT(daytime running lights). Which says to me, your lights work. Check your headlight switch.

Dodge ram 1500- when car is in park, the "park lights" dont work.


The parking lights would not normally come on unless you turn them on with the headlight switch. The daytime running lights would come on in drive and go off in park.
If you can't turn the parking lights on with the headlight switch, you would check the fuse, the relay if equipped, and the headlight switch.

2003 impala keeps blowing rear parking lamp fuse


Same issue also when the fuse blows i looks my electric seat controls. I found the problem was underneath the hood underneath both the fuse boxes it was a power wire pinched under a plate that holds the fuse boxes on. This wire probably wore through after 140,000 miles of rubbing and being pinched. tell me if it works for you

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

1- look for sensor- usually in speaker grill on dash - passenger side- clean with windex and towel

The Consumer Report doesn't seem to like them either. They have them listed as the "Worst of the Worst." It however, would appear that there is a ground problem going on with the dimming of the lights. You would want to be looking for any rusty ground connections connecting to the units. Bad connectors can be at fault also. It sounds like trading it off would be practical. However, make sure you look in the 2011 April addition of the Consumer reports in the back for reliable cars to avoid another lemon.

You can replace the parking light/turn signal bulb with LED lights. The LED draw next to nothing in AMPS and produce no heat at all and last for ever. You can pick up the replacement LED lights for your Camaro at most Auto Parts store like Auto Zone or Pep Boys. Good luck and keep me posted for any more questions you may have, I'm running the LED lights on my wife's Montana for that same reason.

I had the same exact problem as you. For some reason the high beam / low beam switch gets stuck in no-mans land. Turn it on and off a couple times and this should help.
