If that doesn't work - your 2005 equinox has this transport canada recall on it for replacing the DRL resisitor-the dealer will fix at no charge

Hiya...if the green headlight logo in the instrument panel flashes a few times then went out, it indicates one of the low beam headlight lamp has burnt out.
It need a new headlight bulb...check it by turning the headlight on 'low' and see which one is burnt out is the one that need to be replaced.
You could replace it yourself by removing the 4 black plastic clips that holds the top grille brackets on the top(by the top radiator frame area), take the 3 bolts off the headlight brackets then slide your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlight to change the lightbulb--it's tight so do it with care.
Or you can take it in your local garage to do it.
The odometer bulb is burnt out as well so it require removal of the speedometer/instrument panel face off and locate the bulb inside...if you are brave to handle this repair yourself with your tools, try it or have the garage do it for you..your choice.
Take care!

The lights of my equinox are turning every time i started the car even at day time


These are daytime running lights. They run at lower voltage than your "nightime" lights, but use the same bulb.

I personally find them annoying.

More than likely your car was built in Canada where they are mandatory. In US they are not.

You can disable them by removing the relay (under hood) that says "DRL" . Look at fuse diagram in owner manual or under fuse cap.

The Daytime running lights are controlled by a relay under the hood that says "DRL"

I would just pull the relay and not worry about it. daytime running lights are just an annoyance.

Daytime running lights and blinkers do not work


the lights are controlled by a module, it is the DRL module, replace it. also try this
On the inside of the car next to the light switch there is your dome light button. GM made it to where you could turn off the daytime running lights by pushing it three times in and out. Turn the vehicle on then do this. Your daytime running lights should work after this.

Dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox


DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.
