2002 GMC Sonoma, is there a way to disconnect auto lights, just turning them off doesn't work. Truck will just shut off going down the road, have replaced steering column and brain, all lights everyth


Does yours have ZR2 option.?
The automatic lamp control (ALC) system and the daytime running lamps (DRL) feature, except the Canadian version, can be temporarily disabled by performing the following procedure:
  1. Turn the ignition to RUN.
  2. Press the DOME OVERRIDE button 4 times within 6 seconds.
A chime will sound informing you that the system is off. The system will remain disabled until the ignition is cycled off and then on or by pressing the DOME OVERRIDE button 4 more times within 6 seconds. The chime will sound again signaling that the system has been reactivated.
What brain did you replace ? You people crack me up , trying to save money by doing it yourself . You have no idea of the complexity of the system . You could have taken to a Qualified repair shop an spent less . Why on earth do you thing this has anything to do with the truck shutting off ? An it could have been as easy as hooking up the Tech 2 factory scan tool . There are a number of DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes that could be set for the ALC .
DTC B2648
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp relay coil control circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.7 volts and 4.7 volts, the DRL will be commanded ON. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 0.2 volts and 1.0 volts, the ALC will be commanded ON.
  1. Install a scan tool.
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. With a scan tool, observe the ambient light sensor parameter in the Body Control Module (BCM) data list .
Does the scan tool indicate that the ambient light sensor parameter is within the specified range?
0.2-4.7 V
DTC B2647
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.7 volts and 4.7 volts, the DRL will be commanded ON. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage between 0.2 volts and 1.0 volts, the ALC will be commanded ON.
DTC B1398
And , if it was the BCM - body control module you replace , It's no wonder the truck shuts off , Don't know if your aware of it , but that brain needs to be programmed .
Important: If the module is replaced, the module must be programmed prior to performing the Passlock Learn procedure.
  1. Ensure that the following conditions exist in order to prepare for BCM programming:
  2. ?€¢
    The battery is fully charged.


    ?€¢
    The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


    ?€¢
    All accessories are turned OFF.


    ?€¢
    All modules and devices are connected and functioning properly before programming.

  3. Follow the SPS instructions on the Techline Terminal and scan tool to program the BCM.
  4. If the BCM fails to accept the program, perform the following steps:
?€¢
Inspect all BCM connections.


?€¢
Verify that the SPS Techline Terminal and scan tool have the latest software version.

No low beam. Good high beam. No day lights. What's wrong?


No on the fuse . The LH HDLP and RH HDLP fuse in the fuse block - under hood, supply battery positive voltage to both low and high beam lamps at all times. For manual operation, when the headlamp switch is in the ON position, the headlamp switch supplies ground directly to the headlamps and to the body control module (BCM) on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. The BCM uses this signal to determine if the conditions are present to illuminate the daytime running lamps or park lamps.
The headlamps may be turned on 2 different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the ON position, for manual operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position activating automatic lamp control (ALC).For ALC operation, the BCM receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under low light conditions the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit energizing the headlamp control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground through the headlamp switch to the headlamps and the BCM on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. When the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit it also grounds the park lamp relay control circuit illuminating the park lamps. The headlamp relay is grounded at G203.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The low beam headlamps operate at reduced intensity when in daytime running lamps (DRL) mode. The ground circuit to the switch side of the DRL relay has a resistor in-line to reduce the intensity of the low beam headlamps for DRL operation. The body control module (BCM) receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under daylight conditions the BCM grounds the DRL relay control circuit energizing the DRL control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground directly to the low beam headlamps and to the BCM on the headlamp low beam signal circuit. The low beam headlamps now illuminate with reduced intensity. The DRL relay is grounded at G203. Any time the headlamps are illuminated the DRL will not illuminate. Manual park lamps do not effect DRL operation.

Headlamps
You can use the headlamps two different ways.
?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position for normal operations


?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position for automatic lamp control (ALC) operation. During ALC the low beam headlamps are ON for daytime running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions at reduced intensity or low beam headlamps ON at full intensity with exterior park lamps ON in low light conditions. The ambient light sensor is a light-sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes in the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal the BCM turns ON just the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity for the daytime running lamp (DRL) operation. A resistor wire is used (CKT312) to reduced the voltage which reduces the light intensity for the DRL's function. The ambient light sensor can also turn ON the low beam headlamps and the exterior lamps for automatic lamp control (ALC). Any function or condition that turns ON the headlamps will cancel the DRL operation (this means no reduced voltage to the low beam lights). Thirty seconds after you start the engine with the headlamp switch in the OFF position, the DRL will perform one of two actions:
?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity in daylight conditions


?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps and exterior park lamps for low light conditions

The DRL operates when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the parking brake is not set and the transmission is not in the PARK position When these conditions are met and the DRL ambient light sensor indicates daylight conditions the DRL will illuminate
Should have BCM scanned for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , could have DTC'S stored in memory !
DTC B2645 Ambient Light Circuit
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.75-4.9 volts, either the DRL will be commanded ON or the ALC will be commanded ON.

  1. Turn ON the headlamps.
  2. Ensure that the headlamp dimmer switch is in the LOW position.
Do both low beam headlamps illuminate?
Is only one low beam headlamp inoperative? YES / NO

It sounds like your DRL RELAY/Headlight relay. I had this happen with a 2000.

Please rate me if this helps You.

Here is some info that I hope is helpful to you.

This first part is how to disable the DRL
TOYOTA. From the Toyota technical service bulletin EL011-00 Web site for specific models determine where the module is; either the DRL relay or the body ECU, connector number, pin #. Oct 6,2000.

Avalon 1999 DRL relay D4 pin 1
Avalon 2000 body ECU B5 pin 6
Camry S/D 99* DRL relay D6 pin 23
