No you cannot. you could add a switch, to them but thats going to require some soldering and cutting of wires, or you could jerry-rigged the fuse, with a switch. but really you cannot shut off the running lights. before startup.

Yes u have to engage the parking brake to turn them off, doing so the brake send ground to the daytime running light relay and turns them off. So nothing else inflicts with the system, but if ur lights are working in perfect condition they shouldn't turn on before turning on the vehicle.

If you push the emergency brake in just enough to click once the lights will go out. Downfall is that you have to press the emergency brake and don't know the effects of that on the vehicle. This works on all the Chevy 1500, 2500, Tahoe and Suburban.

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.

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

Well I have a 1998 GMC Suburban SLT that has a problem I have to jumpstart twice a day or whenever i shut the car off I replaced all the wireing (except the battery cables) got a new altanator and new fuse...


Simply put it sounds like you have something draining the battery, the daytime running lights came out way before 2001. I have a 98 and there are daytime running lights on mine. When the vehicle is running there should be a green light in your cluster in the top left corner, that comes on whenever you start the truck. that signal also will shut off when you actually turn your headlights on. if there are any accessories plugged in or running live, lights, amp/subs, xm radio, car charger for a cell phone. Anything like this could be draining the battery, along with interior light left on. Check everything make sure all is either unplugged, disconnected, or turned off. That should about solve the problem... hopefully. Good Luck!

Check to see if your emergency brake is release all the way. On most vehicles if the emergency brake is applied a minute amount it will shut off the daytime running lights.

LIghts shut off while driving and so did the dashboard lights, they will not come back on.


Seeing how I dont know if this is during the night or day, most berettas have daytime and automatic nighttime lights. The dashboard and the lights are connected together and if the sensor is saying that its daytime they are going to switch. I suggest checking your daytime running light sensor to see if it is getting to much saturation of light while driving at night. This could be confusing the computer and turning off the lights. Cant guarentee that this is fix it but its a good place to start.

Daytime running lights don't come on 96 chevy 1500 not switch at parking brake or fuse


I had this issue with my 1999 C1500.  I had to jump my truck a couple of times, because I left the inside light on and I found when I did this my daytime running lights worked briefly.  I wondered why, but didn't give it much thought.  I had to replace my battery a couple of months ago and my daytime running lights started working all the time.  Even though my battery would start my vehicle, run the interior components, etc., it didn't have enough voltage for the daytime lights.  Check your battery voltage under a load, see if it helps.
