Most of the GM trucks of later 90's and newer have a little black nub on top of the dash by the defrost vents for a daytime running lamp sensor.

The DRL on my 1999 Chevy Tahoe has went out what's


Could be the light sensor on the top of the dash, below the defrost grill. ( it pops off). Could be wiring, could be the body control module. If the lights come on with the switch, I wouldn't worry about it. Sensor is cheap, wiring is a pain to track down, IE remove the dash. And the BCM is costly and it needs programmed (dealer only)

Drivers daytime running lamp don,t work


The sensor for the DRL is on the top of the dash, in the grill for the windshield defrost grill. The grill just pops out. Use a screwdriver and pry up on it. try to find where it snaps to before giving it full force or you will crack/break the grill. the sensor also just snaps in. Just a note though. You can take this to a garage and have the codes read for the BCM to give you a better idea to where to look. Know someone with a scanner. Go to them.

My automatics lights dont work how do i check it


The sensor is in the defroster grill on top of the dash.

You can try covering it so it get no light.

The grill come right out.

Also if you have daytime running lights check to see if it burned up under the battery.

How do you take the dash off of a chevy cavalier


-well you start by removing the covers at each end of the panel. you will see them when you open the doors, they will just pull off.
-then you will remove the defrost grill in the top center of the dash.
-there wil be two 7 mm bolts behind the grill you will need to remove
-each end of dash will have a 7 mm bolt
-open glove box and you will find three black 7mm
-hidden up left in the glove box a square cutout you will find two silver or gold 7mm bolts that will have to be removed. (these two remove the airbag cover.
-once all the screws are removed then just pull the upper dash panel upwards to remove it (be careful of the airbag itself not to puncture it)
-with the top half of the dash off you will find 4 more 7mm bolts holding the facia part of the dash.
-remove these and pull the dash towards you around the heater and radio the dash is clipped in. be careful not to crack the panel.

-reverse procedure to put it back together.

Outside temperature reads 50 at all times


if your outside temp is wrong on your 2002 Envoy here is how you fix it. part number 15047946 sensor. looks like the wrong part..it's not. take the brace part off of it by pressing the clips and slide out the part you need. Loosen the 4-5 bolts from the top of the grill..attached to brace right on top of the grill..just pull the grill out about 3 inches..put your hand thru..it's driver side to the middle. original is grey box with connector. pull it out, reattach connector to new part and push the new piece in the hole..get the piece from the dealer..25.00...put screws back in grill brace. reset the temp by pressing front defrost, rear defrost and mode all at once. took me 15 minutes..and I'm a 55 year old girl:) you can do it!
