It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box , marked DRL 10 amp fuse ! Also if that is good check the DRL relay in the same fuse/relay box .Your light sensor could also be bad .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) will operate when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, for automatic transmissions (A/T), the gear selector is not in the PARK position, the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, and for manual transmissions (M/T), the park brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate. 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 DRL or the headlamps for auto headlamp operation. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. The DRL can be manually turned OFF by depressing the AHL/DRL switch in the headlamp switch
Do you know that on inside of fuse box lid it shows what fuse is what .
in canada? with DRL?
is the charge (battery Light on running)
nice photo but do name all lights, i see idle is at 800rpm good.
i see check engine light there, top left. so you need to scan PCM
using any scan tool
that is first.
DRL can shut down for other failures one is charge lamp. on.
if charge lamp is on , do not drive far, or it will stall and battery will discharge and be stranded. (till AAA auto tow is called <jumped)
Do you have a interior light dimmer/switch next to the head light switch? rotate it until interior light comes on,then back just enough to them off. Now turn on headlights; Can You see me now? Hope thats IT, Good Luck
check fuses first then start car put in drive do lights come on yes no if no put car back in park let car run check all the lights first are they on yes no if no turn on the lights do they all work yes no if no could be fuse problem wire problem if yes they work the drl unit could be defective you can call dealer for $ of drl or a aftermarket company like auto parts might carry one or a scrap yard in your area might have a good one
It can be disabled by a competent person with good electrical skills. It is tied into the headlights by a DRL module, and not a simple procedure to fix. My question is why would you want to do away with it? The DRL's run on reduced power, so it's not a big issue for the alternator or for extended bulb life. (and it's a good safety feature. I like to see you coming on foggy days-lol.)
Hi Your Equinox's DRL (day time running lights) are fused through the headlight fuses so if your regular lights work its not the fuse. There is a resistor in the DR system that I have seen fail on a few customers vech.s. You also have a ambient light sensor in the system. One thing to check that sounds silly is make sure the parking brake is fully released. if the brake is set the DRL are deactivated. Good luck
