Lamp control module

1998 Aurora I have had intermitent issues with dashboard lights going out and tail lights/running lights going out. My turn signals and brake lights work. I took it to mechanic and he said it is the lamp control module and is a dealer part and would cost $500.00. The mechanic stated when he shook the box the lights flashed. Is there a cheaper way around this?

Try shaking it yourself and see if this is so. Also, go on line and purchase one much cheaper. I suspect you may simply need a good ground wire somewhere.

your socket may not be grounded properly, I have seen this before, and the simplest way to fix is change the socket with a new one.Not another used one it may also be bad.

SOURCE: ''96 Silverado no tail lights.

if that doesn't help, you might want to check the bulbs. the damage might have shorted which burned out the bulbs. but you do have one wire that runs to the rear and splits off to the tail lights. the wire should run back to the head light switch via a fuse. the headlights have its own relay. but i hope it is just a fuse.

Where is the DRL relay located?


There is no DRL relay , has a lamp control module .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) activate under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.


?€¢
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.

When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.
Lamp Control Module (LCM)
In the center of the IP, below the center heater outlets

Daytime running lamps control module. Fuse #37 - inside the passenger compartment or under hood fuse box ? Do you know how to use a volt meter an wiring diagram to find electrical problems ? You have a direct short to ground or fuse #37 wouldn't blow. Underhood fuse box fuse # 37 is for the park lamps .Supply's B+ voltage to the daytime running lamps module an the headlamp switch plus 37

Headlamp Switch, Body Control Module (BCM), and Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU)...
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LP fuse in the underhood accessory wiring junction block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, battery positive voltage is applied to the park lamp circuit. The parklamp circuit then applies battery positive voltage to the DRL control module and to all the marker, park and tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302 The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left ON. If the park lights are turned ON after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain ON until turned OFF or the battery runs dead.

Instrument Panel Lights


Daytime headlight issue ? No , no sensor behind the front bumper . No Daytime time head lamp issue , doesn't turn on the instrument panel light's . This is more then likely a remote dimmer module problem .
Interior Lights Dimming Circuit Description (Pontiac)
When the park lights are on, battery positive voltage (B+) is applied via CKT 32 (YEL) to the remote dimmer module. The interior dimming switch in the lamp dimmer switch is a variable resistor which applies the dimming input via CKT 44 (DK GRN) to the remote dimmer module. The potentiometer in the lamp dimmer switch cannot provide enough current in order to operate the incandescent lights. The remote dimmer module amplifies the current, applying a variable voltage to the incandescent lights. As the amount of current increases, the lamps become brighter. As the amount of current decreases, the lamps become dimmer.
The radio, heater and A/C control assembly, instrument cluster, and passenger climate control each has a vacuum fluorescent (VF) display. When each module receives an input that the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, each module activates the VF display at the full intensity. When the park lights are on, the radio receives the dimming level from an input on CKT 8 (GRY). The radio then relays this information to any other modules with VF displays. All modules with VF displays then adjust the dimming level of their VF display in order to match the level of the incandescent lamps.

I have a 98 chevy malibu. the tail lights, running lights and instrument lights do not work but head lights do


The good news is that all of these problems stem from the same source: the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood wiring harness junction block. When you set the turn/headlamp/wiper switch to PARK, the park lamp relay in the junction block closes and power is applied to the front marker lamps and the park filament of the front park/turn lamps as well as the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps.

As for the instrument lights, that same PARK LPS fuse applies power to the same turn/headlamp/wiper switch that, when set to PARK or HEAD applies power to the variable panel dimmer switch which lets you set the illumination level. Switch output is applied to the lamp dimmer module and module output passes through the 10A INST LAMPS fuse in the right I/P wiring harness junction block to the instrument lamps

TAIL LIGHTS STAYING ON. 1998 JAGUAR XK8


All the lighting goes through the security module in the trunk. If both lamps are staying on them you probably need a new security module. If one light is staying on then you have cut the wire for that tail lamp coming out of the security module and jump the wire from the other tail lamp so both are powered on the one circuit.But first remove the lamp cluster, disconnect it and make sure you do have constant power going to the cluster. If so then first I would perform a hard reboot on the car. Disconnect both sides of the battery, wait for about 30 seconds and then join both of the DISCONNECTED BATTERY TERMINALS TOGETHER (this discharges any memory in the computers) Then reconnect the positive to the battery then the negative. Start the car, reset your clock and retest the lights. If you have the same issue then start with the wiring to the security module.
