Problems like this one are best diagnosed and fixed at your local auto electric shop. They are listed in the yellow pages. They have the diagnostic tools, and the wiring diagrams and the knowhow to quickly isolate the problem and then repair it. Do not let anyone tell you to start replacing parts as electrical parts are not returnable. J.

I have a 2002 impala, when my daylight driving light come on my dash lights go out. Suggestions of possible causes?


DRL - day time running lamps , lets get this stright , When your daytime driving lights are on the dash lights go off . An it's daytime ? If it were night an the regular headlamps were on are the dash light's on then ? Becaused if the daytime running lamps are on an it's day time , why would the dash light's be on ? You wouldn't need the dash lights in day time light conditions . No problem !

Daytime running lights for 2002 chey impala don't work in the dark but work fine in daylight.


Its possible that this is a normal function for your car. They don't want you to use your daytime running lights at night because they are much dimmer than the standard headlights, so there is a sensor (usually near or in the windshield) that detects if it is dark outside. If its dark outside, the daytime running lights will not function, forcing you to use the standard headlights.

The head lights keep on while the switch is off


Do you mean they stay on when the Headlamp Switch is off (and the vehicle is running), or do you mean they stay on when you turn the Ignition Switch off? The 1999 Windstar has DRL (Daytime Running Lights) which illuminate during daylight hours when the vehicle is running. This occurs whether or not the headlamp switch is on.

My daytime running lights do not turn off...........sometimes I've had to resort to unhooking the battery when I park. My original book's diagram of the fuse and relay boxes does not totally...


1- look for sensor- usually in speaker grill on dash - passenger side- clean with windex and towel
2 - if no go- replace headlight switch- controls the daylight and always on lights-
3 if this does not help- need to replace daylight control unit- looks like amp - but silver with fins- usually behind glove box under dash

My 2006 Chevy impala daylights wont go out? I have to pull a fuse. Why is this happening?


THE IMPALA IS MADE THIS WAY FROM THE FACTORY FOR YOURS AND OTHERS SAFETY.
GOV'T REGULATIONS.
THEY ARE CALLED DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS.
ENJOY YOUR CHEVY THE WAY IT WAS MADE FROM THE FACTORY. WITH REGULAR MAINTENANCE IT SHOULD LAST YOU 200-300,000 MILES OR MORE.

Interior dash lights are dim


make sure that there is nothing covering the Ambient Light Sensor on your dash - if the computer thinks it is night time, it will dim your dashlights during daylight hours.

Problem with Automatic Daytime Running Lights


Have you verified both high beams are in working order? DRL's are very funny about not working if one of the lights is burned out. Rememeber that DRL's are only high beams using 20% of the power so just because your normal lights work, it does not mean the high beams are working correctly.
