Daytime safty lights

I have highbeam lights, but have no lowbeam or daytime safty lights. Switch or relay? All fuses are good that I can see.

    dont you think its highly unlikely that both low beams would go out at the same time?? I checked all the relays and all the fuses, they all seem to be ok. I will check the lights, anymore suggestions?

Sounds like the bulbs need replacement. The high beams are separate from the low beam/daytime running lights.

    I have very limited info ( 1 sentence) to go on. Did you check the fuses to be 100% sure? I relly wasn't even sure if you meant that you lost light to both headlights at the same time.





    Yes it is not likely that both would go out at the same time, but it is also unlikely that if you checked the fuses and relays, that much else could be the problem.


    Is this a 4 light car (4 individual lights)? 2 hi 2 low?

Where is the fuse located for the daytime running lights on a 2005 Chev Siveraado?


It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box , marked DRL 10 amp fuse ! Also if that is good check the DRL relay in the same fuse/relay box .Your light sensor could also be bad .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) will operate when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, for automatic transmissions (A/T), the gear selector is not in the PARK position, the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, and for manual transmissions (M/T), the park brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate. The ambient light sensor is a light sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes to the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal it will either turn on the DRL or the headlamps for auto headlamp operation. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. The DRL can be manually turned OFF by depressing the AHL/DRL switch in the headlamp switch
Do you know that on inside of fuse box lid it shows what fuse is what .

Running headlights not working need solution or is there a switch for lights


Head light have two relays.one for daytime and one for normal night. the daytime switching the light to serial circuit and if one bulb is out down both Leigh quit working. Inspect your light high and low beam for normal operation . Inspect your fuses . Swap the daytime relay with identical one.and under the dash is module for daytime running light. inspect the red/black wire for ground from light switch and light blue/ yellow for power from 15A ECU-B fuse
good luck

No headlights no highbeams installed new multifunction switch same problem fuses are good no broken wires any help would be very helpful


If you have Daytime Running Lights(DRL) you might have either a bad ignition switch or headlight switch. There should be headlight relays in fuse box-check owner's manual for location. Check and see if you have other lights or all lights are out. If it's just headlights then it's that circuit.

I have been having some problems with my headlights not running properly. The automatic headlights don't go on automatically anymore and now when I try to turn on the lights manually that doesn't always...


there is a relay under the hood in the fuse/relay panel called drl, or daytime running lamps, that relay is most likely bad, a good way to tell is switch it with the high beam relay, if they come on you know thats it, if they dont, its the relay for the lowbeams, again switch it with the high beam relay and see.. either way i can tell you for sure one of those two are bad... but most of the time it is the daytime running lamps, or sometimes called driving lights relay. hope this helps you

My highbeam headlights won't come on...we have checked the fuses and they are all good.


If you have USA Halogen lights or canadian model with daytime driving lights, check the headlight relay in relay box under hood.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check and let me know if you have questions.

Where is the headlight relay on a ford festiva


OK, you're looking at a switch or a relay because although the drl's work, that's a different circuit that's added on after the regular headlights and high beams.

Also, check your fuses and wiring for a problem there.

Headlights alternate on and off left and right daytime/high beam


although the underhood relay panel is common, I'd check your headlamp bulbs first, these are cheaper than the fuse box. The daytime running lights work off the high beam circuit, thus, a blown highbeam bulb could be the culprit, the fusebox solution was more common on 2001 and up modles, although it's a definite possibility.

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.
