It sounds like the day running lights are coming on, not the headlights. If I'm right, the lights would come on when you put it in gear. Other models will come on at engine start. If it is the running lights, not the headlights, you can check by setting the parking brake. This turns off the running lights, but not the headlights. Verify this, and I think you will be happy to find there is nothing wrong. Good luck!

Headlights only work when car is in gear


If you are stating the headlights only work while in gear (during the day or night) then they are your daytime running lights. Don;t know if you vehicle has automatic headlights or a manual switch. If you are stating you turn the headlights on and they only illuminate while in gear then there are other issues. Let me know

Can I program the automatic headlights to always shut off when the ignition is shut off - day or night?


I have a 1997 cadillac deville that has both 'daytime running lamps' when put into gear and 'twilight sentinel' which turns the headlamps and parking lamps on at night, and goes off during the day or when it is bright enough.

There is an adjustable delay for the twilight sentinel to turn the headlights off after the ignition key is removed and it is night time.
---
I had the 'daytime running lamps' installed on a 1990 Cadillac Deville that turns the headlamps only on when the ignition key is switched to on with an aftermarket module. The headlamps are about 70% or so as bright as the regular twiilight sentinel headlamps and parking lights and are designed to go on during the day.

The twilight sentinel overrides this feature when it gets dark outside.

I had the daytime running lamps installed by an auto electric shop that specializes in electrical systems, alarms, stereos, etc.

Does this help?

Headlights wont turn on


Daytime running lights come on when vehicle put in gear separate circuit from headlight switch. You probably have a bad multifunction switch. Thats the switch with your headlights, turn signals, cruise control, etc... Have it checked by a shop to verify.

-my car is 2003chevy monte carlo the daytime running lights no longer light and at night the dash lights no longer light and the radio lights are dim as is the gear shift selector light. can you help Dave


Hi David, Look for grounds, especially the headlight switch it self... Most of the time the issue you describe is resolved by replacing the headlight switch. There is a variable resistor that fails, over time.

If the headlight switch itself is loose, proper grounding would fail, and current runs other places.

Both the radio and the gear shifter are affected by the dimmer and on or off status of the headlight switch.

I need to turn off the headlight beam while Driving at the day


It should be a manual feature. If you look near the actual light switch there should be something that says either off or has a circle on it. The problem with wanting your daytime running lights off while driving is that you have to turn them off everytime you drive. Hope this helps.

2005 Chevrolet Aveo Running Light Issue


If it is your day time running lights that are not going on, turn your headlights on and then off and it seems to get them working.
