Hey Joe , the resistor you refer to is actually a light sensitive transistor , an it's called an ambient light sensor ! It is located in the top center of the dash pad , that little round bulb ! To replace it you have to Remove the instrument panel (I/P) trim pad. Are your
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Inoperative ?
Expose the ambient light sensor to a bright incandescent lamp.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position.
Ensure the parking brake is disengaged.
Block the wheels.
Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
Do the daytime running lights (DRL) illuminate?
On 2001-2005 vehicles the camshaft position sensor is mounted at the
rear of the cylinder head. On 2006 vehicles, the camshaft position
sensor is located on top of the engine, on the engine head cover.
Connect the scan tool to the data link connector.
Start the engine. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature.
Monitor the CMPS signal. It should continuously fluctuate between 0-5 volts.
If abnormality is found, replace the sensor.
Removal & Installation
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
Remove the bolt that retains the sensor.
Remove the sensor.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your

The daytime running lamp is just the high-beam of the head light being fed a lower voltage so if the high beam works, but DRL does not, there's another issue -- to check the bulb, you'll have to remove the headlamp assembly; pop open the hood, and you'll have to remove to plastic covering that goes across over the radiator, there should be 2 bolts for each side that hold each in place, and it's a bit of a wiggle to get them out
you have day time running lights you are supposed to manualy turn them on at night. if you dont manually turn them on,on most cars the tail lights are not illuminated the automatic headlamps only turn the head lamps on. and they are controlled by the sensor located in the middle of your dash board
Well you know the problem, go for it, replace the head light.
In the future, this is how it works.
Pull the E brake up before you start the car.
When you put it down the geen day time light will flash three times then the repair light will come on.
That means you have a burned out head light.
there is two on that vehicle, both located in the fenders one is located on the driver side near the washer jug (you have to take the jug out to get to it) and the passanger side is in the same basic location just on the rh side.
There is a photo sensor in your dash that turns your head lights on and off depending on light conditions, under certain daytime conditions the lights will come on, since i don't know your particular circumstances I can't say if there is a problem or not.
