These are daytime running lights. They run at lower voltage than your "nightime" lights, but use the same bulb.

I personally find them annoying.

More than likely your car was built in Canada where they are mandatory. In US they are not.

You can disable them by removing the relay (under hood) that says "DRL" . Look at fuse diagram in owner manual or under fuse cap.

I had the same problem on an 08 Equinox. After jumping the battery, recharging, checking all fuses and swaping some of them, I returned to it and it started like if nothing had been wrong. Then I realized that I used a different Key and remote.
I remote locked it and used the first remote and key again and the problem came back. I went back and forth a couple of times and recreated the problem. PROBLEM was my regular key lost its program. I reprogrammed the remote and key and lived happily ever after. good luck.

Chevy 2005 Equinox, day time running light when out, are they controlled by a fuse?


The Daytime running lights are controlled by a relay under the hood that says "DRL"

I would just pull the relay and not worry about it. daytime running lights are just an annoyance.

We just bought a 05 chevy equinox 2 days ago. Last night the "service engine"light came on. My husband went to check the oil and cant find the dip stick.


If you don't tighten the gas cap (make it click at least four times) when refueling it will turn the check engin light on. The dip stick is located in the front of the engine and is a yellow loop.

2006 Chevy Equinox - Service Lamp Reset


Turn the ignition to run. Within three seconds push the gas pedal to the floor three times. Turn the key to off, and then start the car. The light should flash three times signifying that it reset. If it does not, try repeating the process, but instead of turning it to off after stepping on the pedal, just start the car.

Dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox


DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.
