Check the headlight relay.

I need clarification on 2003 Chev Malibu DRL problems:


That piece you think is a ceramic DRL module is a resistor , When in DRL mode voltage to the low beam headlamps circuit goes through that resistor dimming the headlamps from low beam to daytime running lamps . It sounds to me like you need a new resistor ,but without doing some electrical testing it could be a lot of things . The DRL relay in the under hood fuse box could have a problem , could be the BCM - body control module , the ambient light sensor etc... Here is how daytime running lamps work .
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
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 daytime running lights (DRL) or the headlights. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. With the headlight switch in the OFF position, the headlights will either be turned ON or OFF, after an approximate 30 second delay depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The HTR A/C IGN fuse in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will either turn on or off the daytime running lamps, depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G101. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate.

1998 Lumina lights don't work at night!The lights work during the day but not at night. Does anyone know how to fix it?


Theres a sensor in the middle of the dash by the front windshield that detects sunlight and triggers the automatic headlights. The main headlights and daytime running lights might be on a different circuit, in which case they daytime running lamps would turn off at night and the main headlights would turn on, indicating the main headlights arent working and the daytime running lamps are working as intended.

I would check all the fuses related to headlights, check the bulbs and check the switch, then last the light sensor on the dash.

You don't have daytime running lights but you do have automatic light control. The design engineers reasoned that you would not need fog lights unless you were running with headlights on under foggy conditions so these functions are controlled by logic and can't be separated without rewiring

My headlights aren't working, service light came on. Fuses replaced, mechanic ran diagnostic, says they need to remove the firewall. How long does it take, they charge by the hour.


Your firewall is part of the body and is welded in place. Removal is impossible. It sounds like your multi-switch is faulty. That switch is your turn signal lever. You have to remove the steering wheel to replace it. If you don't know how to disable the airbag, don't try to fix it yourself. Let a mechanic or the dealer do it.

There is a microprocessor in the instrument cluster that grounds the DRL relay - do you know if the relay has power from the headlight fuses and is being grounded by the processor ?

Fitted hid headlights now driving lights dont work


The problem with HID lights is that they require 12 volts or more to work. Daytime running lights on require 6-9 volts from the module. So when the original lights are replaced, the daytime running lights will not supply enough voltage to the HID ballasts to turn them on. The result? No Daytime Running lights. Another alternative is to purchase LED strips and place them around your headlights with a fused accessory power from the ignition switch. When the car is on the strips light up and you have Daytime Running Lights!

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.

01 Cavalier no lights


The ding noise is getting your attention the daytime running light flashing is saying no daytime running light are working.
Check engine means no headlights.
Check fuses
check to see if the headlights are plugged in.

Daytime Running lights wont come on on my 2000 Grand Am SE.


Do your high beam headlights work? If you have a burnt high beam light the daytime running lights won't work and then the service vehicle soon light comes on.

1997 Chevrolet Headlight problem


did you try removing the DRL fuse to disable the daytime running lights, and double check your bulbs and fuses for the regular headlights? I'm not much of a mechanic but I'll take that fuse box before messing with anything else.
