You have to bypass the Daytime Running Light (DRL) feature. If you are good with soldering and know how to work with resistors and capacitors, you can EASILY fabricate your own bypass. Check out:

This is a forum that I actively moderate. I have tried option 3 which allows you to turn off your headlights completely and it works perfectly. Definitely the best option.

Drl module


This might not be much of an answer,, But why do you think your DRL is ,gone,,, Do you have HIDS? led tail lights or after market bulbs anywhere in you running lights system, such as turn signals front or rear marker lights corner lights etc, if you do have Hids or leds,, and you didn't put in resistors in line with the lower wattage led bulbs you car can throw the drl light, like turn it on., and with daytime running lights you will short out the hids, since they are not meant to run at say 4 volts like the factory non hid ones that are dim when the running lights are on.... I don't know if my answer will help you but I hope it does.. good luck

ground in wireing check the trailer hitch wiring for foreign objects crossing wire points

Changed head lights to hid lights now no lights


when iI spoke to hyundi about fitting hid conversions to my Tuson I was told that the engine management system would need updating and a special unit fitted called an ignitor to each headlamp....? I never bothered as the cost was extortionate.

Do the headlights stay on always even during daylight driving on a 2008 Saturn Vue


YEP ALL TODAY CARS COME FROM THE FACTORY WITH DAY TIME RUNNING LIGHTS WHICH STAY ON WHILE YOU DRIVING.IF LIGHTS STAY ON WITH ENGINE OFF YOU HAVE A FAULTY DRL RELAY OR DAY TIME RUNNING LIGHTS RELAY.YOU COULD HAVE TURN ON HEAD LIGHTS MANUALLY FROM THE SWITCH.WHICH WILL CAUSE HEAD LIGHTS TO STAY ON.

Day time running lights don't work dashlite indicates they are on


Probably daytime running light module needs replace. They should be able to test that at repair shop to confirm before replacing.

Hid light not turning on


the part about the lights that won't turn on may be because there is a blown fuse or a broken relay which needs to be changed, the part about the hid lights there may be a short circuit somewhere.
