2003 Chev Malibu. Radio inop with key in on position, auto systems not working, I.e. daytime running lamps, auto lock and drivers unlock, fuel and temp gauges not working.


Have you had vehicle check for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes . Check fuse's an relays , find wiring diagrams to see what controls these systems ?
Radio/Battery fuse , fuse G 10 amp located in the right instrument panel fuse box . Do you know where this ?
Fuse Block - Right IP - On the right side of the instrument panel
An there is one on the other end of the instrument panel ,driver side .
Fuse Block - Left IP- On the left side of the instrument panel The fuel an temp . gauges not working is probably the step motors inside instrument cluster . GM had problem with this 03 to 06 .

Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The ambient light sensor is a light sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes to the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal it will either turn on the daytime running lights (DRL) or the headlights. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. With the headlight switch in the OFF position, the headlights will either be turned ON or OFF, after an approximate 30 second delay depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The HTR A/C IGN fuse in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will either turn on or off the daytime running lamps, depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G101. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate.
DRL operation in Manual Transmission equipped vehicles will occur when the ignition switch is in the ON position, and the parking brake is released. - check fuse's an relay first.

I need clarification on 2003 Chev Malibu DRL problems:


That piece you think is a ceramic DRL module is a resistor , When in DRL mode voltage to the low beam headlamps circuit goes through that resistor dimming the headlamps from low beam to daytime running lamps . It sounds to me like you need a new resistor ,but without doing some electrical testing it could be a lot of things . The DRL relay in the under hood fuse box could have a problem , could be the BCM - body control module , the ambient light sensor etc... Here is how daytime running lamps work .

2004 GMC Yukon denali headlights don't turn on at all brights work and parking lights alsonwork but no headlights


They have fuses these days, check them.

Blinder, head and tail lights stopped working on 2005 E-250. Need fuse diagram


okay, look under the hood in the engine compartment and in that fusebox you will check fuse number f1-24. this is not like the older cars where it says park lights the newer cars and trucks are more confusing as the park lights run through modules so a fuse for another component can cause lights not to work but this is the fuse for the parklights if this doesnt do it then i would test all fuses in that box and then check fuses in the inside fuse box located on the leftside of the dash, as far as the headlights there are a few fuses that control the headlights one for each light and then one for the main switch these fuses are located inside the cab leftside of the dash fuses are f2-3, f2-10 , f2-25 , f2-31 check these for the headlights, here are some diagrams to help locate fuses.good luck and have a good day,johnjohn2_83.gifjohnjohn2_6.png

My enterior lighs do not come on I checked the fuses under the hood the fuse box everthing look good so why i don't have lights


does your lights come on manually if you turn your dashlights up all the way your interior lights should come on. if they do then it might be a problem with the switch inside the door. also have you checked the bulb? there should be one on each side under the dash also.

Electric door locks, interior lights, and headlights not working.


You need to check the fuse box under the hood for a blown maxi fuse,the larger of the fuses.

I have a F150 KR. The headlight switch stays on the auto setting. when it is dark, my headlights will not come on, only the parking lights. What might be the problem?


Fuses to check for the autolamp pat

Cab fuse panel, fuse #29
Engine compartment fuse panel, fuses #3, and #6.

Fuse #3 in the engine compartment could be bad, this feeds the headlamp relay.
If the fuses are good, next item to check are the relays for the autolamp function. These are in a relay block, under the oval on the dash.

The oval is held down with spring clips, work one side up with a plastic trim tool ( last resort is a plastic putty knife ).
Under the oval, on the right hand side, there should be a relay block, with the parking lamp and headlamp relays in it ( the 2 relay one, not the 3, that is the door lock relay block ). Swap the 2 relays, and the autolamps should not illuminate the headlamp and the parking lamps should be off, if it is a problem with the relay.

Electrical problem


I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.

Electrical problem


It turned out that disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it reset the control module and fixed the problem.
