You shouldn't have to put it on anything. It is not uncommon for the bulbs to have burned out since they are always on. Not uncommon to go down the road and notice these trucks(P/U, Tahoe, and Suburban)with only 1 running lamp working. Check the bulbs and let me know. If you need instructions on how to get to them let me know also.

My driver side turn signal only works during the day


just on the dash right....... because your dash lights turned on and it changes the brightness of the dash lights, try rolling the little wheel down on the left and see if there is a change?

on the other hand if the outside blinker light fails to work at night the bulb might be burned out you should check it and the dash light might not work if bulb is burned
just turn on the lights turn on the key and blinker and go look?

Headlights only-no running lights-disarming the alarm system all lights work-at night no park lights or running lights-headlights only


These trucks have day time running lights. It sounds like the light switch is not turned all the way to the headlight position or the switch has failed and the day time lighting has taken over. If the switch is in the full on position then you may want to have the switch checked and possibly replaced. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Auto lighting of daytime running (low beam) lamps


Yes. These are called DRL's or daytime running lights. It is law that vehicles manufactured after 1985 must have low amperage lighting on while running.

Day time running lights don't work dashlite indicates they are on


Probably daytime running light module needs replace. They should be able to test that at repair shop to confirm before replacing.

I just got my 2007 hummer h2 sut, but I don't know how to turn on


The fog lights run by default during the day in the "auto" position. To activate the headlights and the fog lights you need modify the jumper position in the fuse box for the lights. "see fuse box diagram"

1993 eagle talon headlight problem


1st, it is not normal on this car for the lights or your cluster lights to be on during the day. It has no sensor for day/night and was not an option on these cars.

Sounds like someone has rewired your lights somewhere to run when the ignition is on. If you are lucky, you 'll be able to recognize a difference in a stock wire harness and an altered one. If it was done, more correctly, it will be much harder to find. It may also be under the driver side dash at the console.

It will be from the multi-position lightswitch to an ignition wire. A wiring diagram would help. Be cautious though. This may have been done to bypass a non-working switch like the connections you found.

Day time running lamps


The day time running lamps are your headlights, the parking lights also conventionally known as the running lights serve no purpose during daylight hours and as such are not necessary in the daytime, and are not illuminated by the DRL module. The DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module illuminates the headlamps in a slightly dimmer state than night time dim headlamps, but does not turn on the conventional running lights. The only way you'll get conventional running lights during the day is to turn them on manually. I just reviewed the wiring schematics for that system, and the DRL relay bypasses the dimmer switch when active and prevents high beam operation, and feeds current directly to the low beam headlights, there is no connection to the parking light circuit from the DRL module wiring.

Insterment panel light out.


When you say you replace the fuse 3 times, is because the fuse have blown? If so, there is a short in the system and will need expert help to trace the short.
Does the day time running light stay on during day light hours and does the lights comes on without activating the headlight switch during night hours when the park brake is released?
If so, this of course is normal condition. If not then the day time running light circuit needs diagnosing along with the body module circuit. Headlight switch will also need to be tested.
