You have a worn-out electrical switch somewhere that is not opening/closing properly. find and replace, check your wiring harness and ground points

SOURCE: Car won't start

Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.

SOURCE: vehicle "clicks" when trying to start...

Clicking is the solenoid, on top of your starter, have someone crank while you tap on it, lots of times this will make it connect and engage. if it works then replace solenoid on starter.

Ok look under the bagtterry tray, there is a black box bolted to the body, it is the headlight ground and has a really bad tendency to corode due to the design.

SOURCE: Drl and high beams dont work

Check the bulbs -- the daytime running lamps use the highbeams on the resistor -- There are two filliments per bulb one high; one low. If both high beam filliments are out nothing will work....replace bulbs if this is the case.

DRL - day time running lamps , lets get this stright , When your daytime driving lights are on the dash lights go off . An it's daytime ? If it were night an the regular headlamps were on are the dash light's on then ? Becaused if the daytime running lamps are on an it's day time , why would the dash light's be on ? You wouldn't need the dash lights in day time light conditions . No problem !

Luces delanteras de mi gmc envoy 2005 se quedan ensendidas durante el dia. como puedo hacer que se apaguen

Luces delanteras de mi gmc envoy 2005 se quedan ensendidas durante el dia. como puedo hacer que se apaguen translated to Geen-go,,, me.... as DRL is on, why?

head lights on in the day , is a feature called DRL
got DRL
in English, daylight running lights , option.
this is normal.
if you dont like it, you can defeat it, but to do so you need the schematic off . (or the real FSM $$$$ book)
see:? (in most cases) but....
one way to fool all DLR is at the DRL module (logic box)
you make the box think brakes are on all the time.
there are many ways, but the least intrusive ways are best
so when you sell the car , you can put it back to STOCK normal condition. see?
also the BCM body computer might not be happy doing these
hacks, it monitors the DRL for normal operation.
But wait?
i logged in and found no schematic there., then found this gem.
"Verify that the daytime running lamps (DRL) defeat feature of the headlamp switch operates properly."

so there is a switch to defeat it already.
on USA cars. you never posted your country so, cant say
at all what you have or what is there. as DRL is not required here
in USA but in say Canada it is..... so.........
how is that?

How to fix no lowbeam headlights on 97 geo metro

did you check the HL fuses? x2
are both dead? or just one?
Highs work , right,?
would you like to guess, ?
or test? have a volt meter, and a schematic.?
DRL or non DRL system? (daylight running lamps).
2 systems, DRL is mostly in CANADA but no always,
when did they both last work, dont know, or last week>???
if dont know, why not test the lamps to see if they are good
using any 12vdc battery over 5amp current.
or use and OHm meter on the filaments, for lows. 0 ohms good
infinity bad.
to go father, we need what type HL system is on car.
DLR or not. DLR love to fail. for sure.

I want to install daylight rolling lights, how should I wire it to fuse box?

rygO5JPM6h8HWAf9hLz0wbJIlzX6N"> If I am not wrong then this might be the picture of a nissan sentra se fuse box near the battery in engine bay.
Turn the ignition key off. Check a fuse slot with the help of a 12volt tester pen for continuity and find a slot which does not show any voltage. Now turn the ignition key on and check the same fuse slot. If it does show 12 volts on tester pen then its will be your connection point for your DRL's positive wire. Turn the ignition key off and tap your DRL's red wire (+ve wire) to this slot and connect your DRL's black wire (-ve wire) to your car's body. Thats it then....

2005 honda civic daylight are not working fuse are ok

DRL, are you in Canada?
Daytime, running lights.
did you pull the module to see the very common burned up pins?
plastic all ugly and burnt?

DRL module is just LOGIC.
it has inputs that must be good for it to work.
one hand brake, it must be off
the other is on many cars, Alternator not bad, it cuts DRL
so the battery charge is saved so you can drive with EFI not going dead so soon. (ECU/PCM needs DC power to run engine)

the fsm covers this
as does
use the schematic of DRL to see what pins need what logic state to work. if confused ask questions.

Headlights won't work

HL always work even keys in pocket, (USA rules)
most have 2 fuse's check both fuses.
some cars outside (mostly) USA have DRL,
daylight running light option or manditory (canada)
got DRL, that is the first question, they messup more often.
and are more complex.

at the least there is:
1: battery dead, does car start? you didnt say.
2: bad fuses.
3: bad HL relay
4: bad HL switch.
5: bad wires. yes, its and endless topic this and connnectors. bad.

Daylights not working

10A fuse 16 in the central junction box supplies power to the DRL module. 15A fuse 15 in the battery junction box (BJB) supplies power to the DRL relay. DRL module output passes through 15A fuse 12 in the BJB and 15A fuses 2 and 3 in the BJB and is applied to the headlights. If all fuses are OK, the problem may be in the DRL relay, the DRL module or associated wiring

2001 Pontiac Bonneville won't start

have you not left any load on overnight? park light or left the door partially open and the dome light would be left on?

have the battery recharge and the next night, make sure that no light would be left on the car.

if it would drain out again, have it recharged again, use it and on the night, make sure no light is left on the car, then remove the positive pole on the battery overnight.

the next morning, put the positive cable back and start the car.

if the car would start, then no problem with the battery, if the car would not start, then return the battery because it is defective.

tnx 4 using fixya,
