Daytime Running Lights won't turn off

I pull the fuse to keep the battery from dying overnight. What can I replace, remove or check myself- without a mechanic to help me?

Get yourself a decent wiring diagram and determine what the fuse you are pulling serves, then do individual testing on those components and wiring.

Electrical battery drain

This model has issues with the security system. You might try pulling fuse 2, but make sure the turn signals still work without that fuse.

I have a 2003 Chevy Astro Van and my Daytime Running Lamps not working. Any ideas? I also have problems with my locks. I know it's the actuators, but how do I replace them when they are riveted in? SN: I...

as far as daytime running lights, pull emergency brake handle, lift up on the ebrake pedal while you have handle pulled back. not come on? open hood look for square black box marked main fuses and or relays. lift cover up on box, turn the lid over and look for location marked on inside of lid for location of daytime running lights[fuse] check that fuse to see if its blown. to check bad fuse, look at fuse inside the colored square for a silver S if that S has a break in it where it will not make a complete S the fuse is blown. please repost your question about your locks thank you for choosing

New alternator wont hold a charge is there a special fuse for the alternator if so where is it located. 2 brand new alternators and batteries so far

If you have a fuse it will be in the power distribution center near the battery main fuses and relays are inside.
Check the charging system with a volt meter right at the battery. Battery standing charge should be no lower than 12v if charging you should read between 13 and 14 volts running, about 13 with all electricals turned on. If not, the alternator isn't working OR the regulator has failed. (some regulators are part of the main computer but you need to check which system you have. AND do check for fuses.
If charging system is working you may have a system draw that is pulling the system down overnight. Check that with an ammeter between either cable (removed from battery) and battery connection...pull fuses one by one till draw disappears then check components in that system. Don't be concerned with "low Draw" items such as radio that always pulls something to keep memory and clock working.

01 Cavalier no lights

The ding noise is getting your attention the daytime running light flashing is saying no daytime running light are working.
Check engine means no headlights.
Check fuses
check to see if the headlights are plugged in.

Day time head lights won't turn off

A simple fix is to pull fuse number 15 in the fuse box under the hood.... (by the radiator... long black box about 3 inches wide by 12 inches long.) It should be a 15 amp fuse. This will not really fix the issue, but its a heck of a lot easier than the tracking down you might need to do. What? It could be a headlamp switch, a daytime runninglight module, or a short in the wire for the daytime running lights. This simple easy thing is to pull the fuse and see if that works for you now. (You will lose daytime running lights doing this. So determine if you need those first... legally or otherwise.)

Check the relay for the daytime running lights - probably stuck on ya.
My 94 didn't have them, so I can't tell you where it is.
