Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Following my wife home from the local repair shop, she told me that one of my DRL's was out, but wasn't sure which one. So, I bought the replacement bulbs from NAPA and asked which one was out...... Try and turn those things on, and then getout of the truck to identify which light is inop. With the more than thourough instructions in the owneers manual i come accross a passage under "(OFF) that reads, turing the switch to this positionturns off the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and the automatic headlamps. An indicator light will illuminate whem the position is selected" I believe there are two LED's just outside the selected switch stops occordingly. When the off position is selected, the LED illuminates. When the "AUTO" position is selected ....nothing. I can't get them to turn on. How deep is it to swap out a switch like this being colored blind. Just give it to Pep Boys hunh?

Its just a connector to unplug from the back of the switch, no wire splicing is needed. read into the job, do it, and organize/mark the screws or you will be confused putting the dash back together.

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.

Replacing parts wasn't the way to go

I think your off to the repair shop

The random misfire code & cam sensor code,
was the key

You should be figuring out why they came up

I would suspect a bad timing chain or one of the

if this only started after the shop replaced the tank then they are on the hook to repair the problem as it wasn`t there before they did the job and should not charge you for it.they may need to check the wiring(power and ground)at the tank as disturbing it could have caused the problem.

Forget what things do.
Your vehicle has never been properly diagnosed.
You need to find a local repair shop that works on a lot of Nissans and is up to speed on current technology.
To start with a stalling issues and go to a cam sensor,trans,etc, tells me that you haven't found mechanics with the necessary skills to repair todays high tech vehicles.

Most DRL's are controlled by a relay. The relay malfunctions after a while. Need to go to the dealer and purchase a DRL relay. Once you see what it looks like open hood and match it to the bad one, then replace. If you can not locate it the library has mechanical books for you make and model to look up location of the drl relay.
