Question about 1998 Pontiac Sunfire
Daytime running lights indicator keeps flashing until I turn the headlights on. Also, the alarm goes off indicating that my headlights are on when I remove the keys. The parking light will not turn off. I pulled the fuse but my battery still completely drained

Check your bulbs. A burnt out bulb or the wrong bulb installed. I had both on a car I bought. The Microprocessor is reading an incorrect amp draw.

i had the same problem wit a 97 Sunfire GT. It was the light control switch on the steering whell column. i went to Advanced Auto for the part. I think it was around $35. The lights have worked perfect in all modes every since. hope this helps.

SOURCE: My daytime running lights work,
if you have to hold the switch so the high beams stay on then that indicates a bad/worn switch,you could have 2 problems the day time running light relay may have a problem with it.i would first replace the headlight switch at the base of the steering colume as by the info you supply its not changing to the high beam side without holding the switch in position.

Hello and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

There is a microprocessor in the instrument cluster that grounds the DRL relay - do you know if the relay has power from the headlight fuses and is being grounded by the processor ?
