Question about 1999 Pontiac Sunfire
My girlfriend's Sunfire has no low beam or DRL lights. I've replaced the relay and the multifunction switch on the column. I can get low beams to work if I remove the relay and use a jumper wire. She also had a remote starter installed aftermarket. I need a schematic for the headlights and one for the remote starter unit. One problem she doesn't have a manual for the remote unit and no manufacturer name is on it. Am I up **** creek now ?
On the driver side follow the wire that goes from driver to passager in the middle i saw many broking wire in there hope it help fixya our post thanks pierre

I'm afraid so. If the problem didn't exist prior to the remote starter install that is. Who installed the remote starter unit? If you did and it's all still fresh in your head as to what you did i suggest checking all the new connections made for the starter. Or just get under the dash and check anyway. Could be something as simple as a loose wire. I have installed 2 remote starters and there's a lot of splicing involved with them especially when you get into wiring the remote starter to activate the headlights for security reasons at night or just to help scare away would be theives.

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime
Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to
the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.
[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test
configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."
2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.
3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not
burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned
out at the same time. Replace as necessary.
In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]
My problem was that the test configuration did not have
the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much
thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what
does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays
