SOURCE: dash light DRL stays on

Bad solders in DRL relay located left side of steering column below change drawer behind dash. It will be indicated with a stamp DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT RELAY. Remove it and redo the solders to the relay contacts in the unit. This will fix the DRL light in dash, return the DRL system to functioning and will also fix headlight not working problem.

SOURCE: I have a 98 Honda Accord that does not have any

If you can get an ohm meter by the wires on the brake switch check for power. Most brake switches may have multiple wires but they will all make either power or ground when the pedal is pushed. I have seen the wires break right out of the harness. That might not be the answer but it is a starting place. I would also check power at the fuse with a multimeter, both sides.

Alternator(s) Keep Burning up! Hi Everyone, I have replaced my alternator 4 times. Now the alternator has burned up again and I have to replace it a 5th! time.


For the lights on the front and dash lights coming on when you push the brakes,check the brake light bulbs and wiring at the back.A defective bulb may be energizing the parking light circuit by transferring voltage from the brake light circuit.If you have trailer wiring this could be the source also.Do you have a sub in the car?They can shorten the life of alternators as they can use lots of power.Have you checked the voltage the alternator is producing and amps the vehicle is asking for when running?

Where is the DRL relay located?


There is no DRL relay , has a lamp control module .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) activate under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.


?€¢
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.

When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.
Lamp Control Module (LCM)
In the center of the IP, below the center heater outlets

Hello,I use honda accord 2004model,(EOD) the DRL life is on,yello lite,pls explain better to me.thanks


in canada? with DRL?
is the charge (battery Light on running)
nice photo but do name all lights, i see idle is at 800rpm good.
i see check engine light there, top left. so you need to scan PCM
using any scan tool
that is first.

DRL can shut down for other failures one is charge lamp. on.
if charge lamp is on , do not drive far, or it will stall and battery will discharge and be stranded. (till AAA auto tow is called <jumped)

Daytime running lights relay


no year, 1973? is first civic, see my confusion>?

are you in CANADA. DRL heaven?

check fuses first , as always.

DRL failure. there are many.

some cars even cut DRL for.

hand brake stuck on , or any brake failure.

or charge system failure, (so the battery stays working longer)

we use a voltmeter at the DRL module , checking all pins

to find out why its dead.



this is covered in the FSM how to test DRL.

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

Daytime running lights not working


Assuming this is an LX, check 7.5A fuses 9 and 5 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box. Fuse 9 applies power to the DRL indicator light in the gauge assembly which connects to the DRL control unit. Fuse 5 supplies power to the DRL control unit when the ignition is on. Also check 100A fuse 41 in the underhood fuse/relay box which supplies power to the headlight relays. Setting the headlight switch to HEAD causes the headlight relays to close and apply power through 20A fuses 45 and 43 in the underhood fuse/relay box to the low beams. Low beam power also passes through the DRL diode to close the high beam cut relay and prevent high beam use during DRL operation.

No high beams,replaced both bulbs, daytime running lights will work sometimes and somtimes flicker, is it the DRL relay or the multie function switch.


the drl relay could cause the lights to flicker and possibly no high beams as the drl uses the high beam filament.also it could be the dimmer switch located at the base of the steering colume were the dimmer switch rod works the switch.

LIGHT ON DURING DAYTIME


Hi,
If your Corolla has Daytime running lights, they would stay on during the day. This is a regulation requirement in Canada. If your car is from Canada or had a Canadian Destination when it was built it would have that. Otherwise the DRL relay is wrong in the vehicle. Let me own how it goes. The CR label on the driverside door will tell you if it was made for Canada.

What is the DRL warning light on the dashboard of my 2007 Honda CRV?


On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.
