There isn't a "sensor" per say. The DRL's are controlled by a microprocessor on the instrument cluster. The processor looks for a voltage drop on the ground side of the headlamp circuit. If it see's voltage it will ground the DRL relay.

The DRL relay is under/behind the drivers side headlamp assembly. It will have two orange, black, blue, and green w/ black wires at the connector.

If you need further assistance with your problem don't hesitate to ask!

The headlights on 97 pontiac sunfire have no power to them. It looks like the ignition has been replaced and the security has been tripped. causing car to pull less power, not run right. Any ideas


Yea, take it to a qualified repair shop ! Could be anything , and with out doing some test couldn't make a suggestions .
Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description
The instrument cluster controls the headlamp systems that include daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity when all of the following conditions apply:
• The engine is running.
• The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
• The normal headlamps are not on.
The instrument cluster turns the DRL system on by grounding CKT 592, thereby energizing the DRL relay. This action allows a reduced voltage of 6 volts to flow across the headlamps. If the vehicle has the optional fog lamps, the fog lamp relay will also be energized. The park lamps will turn on and the fog lamps will operate normally. When the headlamp switch is turned to the ON position, the instrument cluster allows normal headlamp operation.
The instrument cluster also has an input from the park brake. If the park brake is in the ON position, the DRL will remain disabled until the park brake is placed in the OFF position. On vehicles with an automatic transaxle, the instrument cluster will disable the DRL until the transaxle has been taken out of the PARK position.

Passenger side high beam element burned out. DRL problem might be the emergency brake suppose to turn off when engaged. Slightly depressed will cause DRL not to work.

Where is the DRL Module on a 2003 Sunfire?


Fuse panel left side of dash. It's not a typical module it's only a relay. Your instrument cluster has a microprocessor which energizes the relay. In another post someone said there is a resistor behind right headlamp that could be your problem, I haven't as of yet checked the schematics to confirm but sounds right.
