I have a Pontiac Sunfire 2001 2.2, DRL is flashing that will eventually cause a Service Alarm on my panel. I could bypass the alarm by turning my headlight manually. What could be the possible problem?

Check for corroded wires. The wiring harness starts under the battery tray and sometimes the battery leaks acid on the connector and corrodes it. If the connector looks good and the bulbs are good then more than likely the harness is rubbing between the washer bottle and the body creating an open or short to ground in either the pink wire or the blue wire to the headlights.

I had a problem with that before on my 2001 Sunfire. It was an issue with the sensor that tells the alarm system that the trunk is open. Make sure the trunk is closed and the trunk wiring is OK.

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!

Having some problems with electrical. head lights are flashing on and off all night long. and passenger head light is out. thought it might be the bulb but have seen it come back on

If you have an alarm installed try removing the in line fuse from the power line to the alarm. This is a common error when an after market alarm has faulted out.
