Hid drl's not working


DRLs generally run at lower power than regular lights by cycling on and off rapidly. DRL's are probably not compatible with your HID kit. Pull the DRL fuse, they are not required by law in the US,

The fuses that protect your headlamp circuits are Fuse Numbers [4] (Left High Beam), [5] (Right High Beam) [6] (Left Low Beam) and [7] (Right Low Beam).
Fuse 4 is a 10 Amp fuse
Fuse 5 is a 10 Amp fuse
Fuse 6 is a 20 Amp fuse
Fuse 7 is a 15 Amp fuse
All are located in the Power Distribution Center in the engine compartment.

The difference between a 1999 Chrysler Town & Country with DRL and WITHOUT DRL is that one has a DRL module and the other does not. The headlmps themselves are wired exactly the same.

To make yours work, you would have to add the DRL module and reprogram your Body Control Module (BCM) to accept the DRL module. Doing it any other way would probably result in the BCM setting fault codes and possibly even causing malfunctions in other non-headlamp-related circuits.

I just purchased a 1996 cavalier. It didn't have an owners manual and i need to know what the abrieviations on the fuse box stand for. I'm trying to find the fuse for the brake lights and rear turn...


Hi, the likely problem is the turn signal switch. The signals and brake lights use different fuses. You can get an owners manual here:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/1996-Chevrolet-Cavalier.pdf

A new switch is about $40, and it isn't too hard to replace. Make sure you get one that has the same controls as yours does. To replace the switch, remove the covers from the steering column, disconnect the switch and unscrew it from the column.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Signal lights will not work. Fuse & bulbs are good.


If you slightly pull back and the signals work it needs a new multifunction switch.

04 chev optraheadlights not working. new switch and drl module. drls working .no high or low beam.relays and fuses good


apparently there has been a Daewoo technical bulletin that says problems with low beam and DRL on some 2005-6 Optras caused by a melted wire in the s201 splice pack on the IP harness. If I knew where that was I might be able to fix the same problem on my Optra. Tried new light switch but no success.

Dim headlight don't work but bright does and bulbs are ok


Several things on your cavalier could cause this to happen...
If it's just your high-beams, low-beams, or DRL that are out (just one), start with the DRL relay (in the fuse box). If that's not it, and it's not the DRL, try the multi-function switch (the thing attached to the left of your steering wheel, the headlight switch/cruise control switch). If all that checks out ok the next place to look under the hood... there is a pin-out connector/harness under the battery box (located in the front on the driver's side) that may be corroded. It is attached to the underside, and not easy to see without a mirror. If there is corrosion on the battery box, this connector is probably corroded as well...anything that runs off the battery will find it's way to this connector.

Note for anyone else that reads this: Different people will experience similar problems, sometimes with the low-beams, sometimes with the highs, because of different corrosion patterns and the DRLs being run from different bulbs.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please take time to rate me a fixya.

I have a 1998 cavilier i have no low beams,fuses checked good


 I’m inclined to believe you have a headlight switch problem and here’s why. There are 2 fuses one for each of the headlights on the vehicle. For the daytime running lights (DRL) to operate the fuse and wiring to the right head light has to be good, because it supplies the power for both headlights in the DRL mode. The fuse and wiring for the left headlight has to be good because the DRL relay needs power from that fuse to operate. The DRL relay in turn provides a path through the left headlight and wiring to ground. When you pull back on the dimmer switch, you are activating the flash to pass circuit of the headlight switch assembly. Because the flash to pass mode works you then know that the high beam wiring and headlight bulbs are in good condition. This also tells you that the ground circuit for the headlight switch is good. In many newer vehicles, the headlight switch doesn't provide power to the lights. The headlight switch has now become the path to ground to complete the circuit. The headlight switch and the high/low beam dimmer control are one assembly so when you replace one you get the other free. Such a deal! My coffee bet is on the headlight switch assembly.
