    Thanks. The suggestion was right on the money. I picked up a used module and it solved the problem.

Hi, your DRL module is under the dash above your left foot. Recommend you check the connectors for looseness and corrosion. If connections are good, back-probe with engine running to see if both lights are getting power. Sorry I don't have the pinouts. Hopefully the wire colors are sufficient to ID the right terminals.

    Hi, I'm looking at the DRL module for a 2000 camaro--probably the same unit you have. I see it has separate relays for the left and right lamps. May be that the left lamp relay is intermittent. You could probably open the module to verify this condition. If bad, a trip to the salvage yard would probably get you a good module.

The running lights that are on during the daylight hours are the hi beams only. Check the dimmer and headlamp switch for one of them is not functioning no longer

I got no daytime running light Iwould like to know why


Make sure both high beam and low beam bulbs are working when you use the headlight switch. If ok it may be a daytime running light module failure or running lamp relay failure diagnostic time will be needed to isolate this problem and you may want to consider a reputable shop for this

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

2002 Dodge Caravan headlamps: one works on dim the other works on high beam but not together. Also only one daytime running lamp.


Your van has dual diligent headlamp bulbs, that means each headlight has one bulb that serves as high beam and low beam. What has most likely happened is on one side the low beam filament has burnt out, and on the other side the high beam filiment has burnt out. The daytime running lights are just the high beam filament running on reduced power, so if the high beam doesn't work on one side, that same side will have no daytime running light. Replace both headlamp bulbs with matching, good quality bulbs.

One headlight works and other doesn't but when I switch bulbs I still have same issue. Drivers side dayrtime n highbeem works and passenger side just low beem works but when I switch bulbs then its still...


the headlamps are controlled by the IPM (intellegent power module) which is a fancy name for the underhood fuse box. The fuse box has its own computer that controls lighting. The only thing you can do is check for power the the drivers side headlamp. The drivers side low beam is power by the white w/ dark blue wire. If there is no power then a trip to your dodge dealer is the next step.

It is possible that there is an issue with the ground wire so make sure the ground wire is grounded.

Sounds like you need a bulb,the daytime running lights send power to the high beam wire so they look like low beam lights are on but really they are high beam lights running on low voltage.

Check the wiring inside the headlight assy. I had a bad wire in a unit I installed. Once I tracked it down and repaired the wire all was fine.
