DRL control module , maybe . Go to http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams . To find out what is causing the problem electrical testing needs to be done . Videos on youtube ,basic automotive electrical testing , how to read a wiring diagram , how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter . Check B+ voltage to the DRL control module and the ground circuit as well .Also check pin #1 at the DRL control module , this is low beam signal circuit .

Show me where DRL fuse is


THERE NO SUCH FUSE
NOW ASKed 3 MORE TIMES(i delete the extra useless posts now one,so please add to just one post one problem here, click comments.

are you repairing your car. 99%dont
or your hubby or boy friend.
or what,
what are you asking,no real question posted.
besides non existant easter egg hunts, wasted
examples of questions:
can you guess?, ,sure,but why, 25 things possible.
can you show the schematic.? sure.
can you show, how to find the shop manual? sure posted 100 times here, ever like search
google mitchell DIY..... bingo.

can you show the specific meter checks ,sure
facts:
you cannot fix cars by guessing, sorry,
but is vastly more complex that you imagine.
should I post my 50 years, sparks experience in a text box, ?

my guess, no tool
no shop
no sparks skills.
no cash for tools, other wise most folks get the fixed,with the daunting task of learning tools
and electric rules

now my useless guess.
stats
the DRL module pins are fried, as all GEO'S do.
seen 100s.but fate wins,not guessing.
why own a Geo, ? LIKE THE YUGO OF CARS NOW.

97 geo metro, low beams won't work, high beams work. dlr doesn't work either


DLR, you meant DRL? day light running lamps>?
are you in canada, if yes, that be good to say , yah?
and if so, the wiring is all unique there, as it is on all cars in all countries (laws )
to fix DRL in ANY car you need (unless luck and inspections fail)
is called a SCHEMATIC. with that and any $10 volt meter this job is easy.
so what do we know. we know the 2 fuses are not BLOWN.
we know that DRL runs low beams. and fails
we know that DRL does not run Highs ever. (top clue)
my guess is FLASH works too, and is clue 2.
clue 3, is the HL relay is good, or high beams would be dead except on FLASH.
the first thing to do with DLR failure. is to pull the module
and see the burnt pins, as all Geo/Suz. love to do.... weak parts.
now some DRL rules. the DRL has logic, and if the inputs to it
fail the DRL fails.
the hand brake most work, that is the switch and the brake lamp on the dash must go out, does it?
rule 2. the DRL lamp on the dash does it work>? normally?

the DRL runs lows.
and the DRL has 2 modes, for DRL
DRL , with the dimming resistor active (DRL mode is dim)
DRL , bypassed mode, driver selects Lows.
the DRL logic sees you do that and exits, DRL dim mode for full bright low beams.
that i show it all works.
see this drawing.
ask how to test it more.. its not hard, ask.

here it is.
sorry that fixya add image sux.. truely.

or measure the voltage on all pins (dlr module)
tell me?them.?
and I tell you whats wrong.but look for burned pins first ,hint hint

Location of daylight headlight relay for 1997 Geo metro with 1.3 liter motor


what country, lights vary by, you guessed it country
some of these have no relay at all.
if in canada, they have DRL, got DRL? that be #1 fact !!!
answering for NO DRL , i am.
DRL means Daylight running lamps (on all the time ,by law)

both dead,? and on low and high beams?, and dead when using the FLASH feature?, not posting these facts, makes diagnosis hard
and lots of wasted tests and labor.
if high beam works, its NOT the relay.
if only Flash works, that mode bypasses the relay
and is key to the solution.

did you check fuses first?
the metro is swift , mostly
lets look it up, in the FSM. G13
both lamps dead?
Suzuki uses hot all time headlights, via fuses. 12vdc hot .
then the combo switch grounds them
i posted the schematic many times here.
so will do that again.
here is the USA drawing, off a 97 swift ,(no DRL)
i do have both drawings.
location is the most hard thing to answer on all cars.
the answer is usually , the fuse box. did you look?
warning , i see team swift guys dont know about the way
the combo switch actually works. inside. see the 3 grounds used?
try try to hack the system not understanding these 3 grounds. and failed.
for sure using a $10 volt meter, we can fix any metro.
the hard thing to find is a full diagram of the cab fuse box.
the operators guide, shows. only fuse locations. not relay
that means only the FSM cover these facts.
SF413.

did you look here first
under hood? its clearly marked, are those not the major relays, there.

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.

No headlights on dim only work on bright


old post.(day)
low beams, they are.
both low beam lamps.dead but are PARK/tail dead too?. (a key fact needed here to save time finding cause)
there are more that one cause.
but fuses are first, some cars have 2 fuse.
one for highs and lows.
or for left and right.
they do that so at least some lights work and not all go out at once, on a dark rainy night on a country road (or cliff road)
GEO, the car brand GEO is sold mostly in USA and Canada
if in CANADA the law says its DRL lamps.
in canada they have a Drylight Running lamps and laws and have a unique controller for that (DRL module) and can fail and mess up lamps. so GOT DRL>?
on this car the fues box shows, left and right HL
the next question is does it run a relay.
answer,
DRL, the DRL module runs low beams totally so that be first.
and its DRL relay.
non DLR metro, works like this
im reading the online schematics for you, and so could you.
the no-DRL is brutally simple.
the fuse runs the lamps direct, means lamps hot all the time.
the park and head light switch, grounds the low beam wire feed.
no relays , magic , DRL just a simple switch, in the combo switch.
for you or others seaching Metro head lamps.
here is the schemo.
red/wht wire must be 0v on low beams if not switch bad.
if g200 is good, but g200 is used in highs so can NOT BE BAD.
as you can see the switch grounds the HL lines below.
to make the lamps GLOW,

Drl and headlights not working on my 97 Silverado new switch and multifunction switch and still have nothing???


According to wiring diagrams, a 97 model just has the basic system where the headlight switch provides power. A 1999 model is a newer style where the headlights are powered thru a relay with left and right fuses, and the headlight switch provides the ground circuit.
Which system do you have, and do you have power or ground at the bulbs ?

Low beams not working but high beams are on a 2000 chevy metro


The headlight relay provides power to the dimmer relay, then power goes thru a fuse for each light for each circuit (4). The low beam fuses are in fuse block 2. The dimmer relay is controlled by the daytime running light module. The headlight and dimmer switches send signals to the DRL module. You may need a shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

My 99 DRL and Headlights wont come on whats causing this?


Hi, if the high beams work, try swapping out the DRL relay. It's in the big box under the hood. DRL wiring is a bit complicated. BCM and DRL module both come into play. Best approach is to try simple things and hope they work. If not, you'll need a meter to troubleshoot wiring. Let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
