Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
One daytime running light is always on when driving, but the other is on sometimes, off others. It seems to be on when the engine is cold and off when hot.
I have checked the light, bulb, socket and for loose wiring, but it still exists.
This is a common problem for this car. Most likly by the control module.that has cold solder joint inside. You can replace it with a used one; but if the solder joint inside is not reheated/reflowed the same problem will come back soon.

I would start looking at the relay for the DRL, it sounds like the relay might me overheating and causing one of the lights to go out, or it could be that the element in the bulb is bouncing and making connection from time to time giving the appearance of a malfunction.
