Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.

The problem with the DRL issue describd in the above posts is the DRl module(it needs to be replaced). The buzzing relay and intermittent on/off of passenger side DRl are indicators that the module needs to be replaced.

I too had the same exact problem on my 1999 Cavalier. I replaced the lamps,then the DLR,and then looked at the harness under the battery box.(It appeared to look ok and didn't have any corrosion on it I could see). I then ordered a new turn signal/high beam switch that's on the steering column. I replaced the switch and still had the same problem. Not wanting to let this defeat me I started tracing the wires from the high beam lamps back. When I got back to the wiring harness under the battery box I noticed that just one of the wires had a little corossion on it. Guess what? it turned out that was the high beam wire and it was coroded through and not making the circuit complete. I cut the wire at the coroded spot, restripped both ends and twisted them together. At that point I tried all the lights and they worked perfectly. I then soldered and shrink wraped the repaired wire. (Finally end of problem) My suggestion,Really look closely at that wiring harness. If you have to use a magnifiying glass do so. This was a really frustrating problem that I finally solved and I hope this can help others with the same problem.
