Did this get resolved?
I'm having the same issues.
I'm unable to drive if daytime running lights is set to auto. It'll run after starting it on auto DRL, however when shift gear to drive and giving it some gas, it powers down the entire vehicle.
I have to turn light switch to on position in order to drive the vehicle at all. ???????????????

Where is the fuse located for the daytime running lights on a 2005 Chev Siveraado?


It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box , marked DRL 10 amp fuse ! Also if that is good check the DRL relay in the same fuse/relay box .Your light sensor could also be bad .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) will operate when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, for automatic transmissions (A/T), the gear selector is not in the PARK position, the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, and for manual transmissions (M/T), the park brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate. 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 DRL or the headlamps for auto headlamp operation. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. The DRL can be manually turned OFF by depressing the AHL/DRL switch in the headlamp switch
Do you know that on inside of fuse box lid it shows what fuse is what .

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

2007 chevy silverado can not get running lights to work


If you are talking about the Daytime Driving lights, I believe they only come on if there is sufficient daylight present, the engine is running, and the headlamps and park lights also have to be in the "Auto" position. I think your model pickup illuminates the low beams for use as the Daytime lights.

Headlights only work when car is in gear


If you are stating the headlights only work while in gear (during the day or night) then they are your daytime running lights. Don;t know if you vehicle has automatic headlights or a manual switch. If you are stating you turn the headlights on and they only illuminate while in gear then there are other issues. Let me know

Auto lighting of daytime running (low beam) lamps


Yes. These are called DRL's or daytime running lights. It is law that vehicles manufactured after 1985 must have low amperage lighting on while running.

I have a 96 Yukon just last night the daytime lights went out both of them can you help me please..Barry


Im not sure I am following you. When it gets dark enough the "daytime" running lights should go off and the headlights and tail lights should come on for night time driving. The head light switch must be set in the "auto" position.
Regards.

Auto headlights


Yes, the headlights normally will come on during the da. There is a photo sensor that controls this feature. You may refer to your owner's manual before assuming that there is any major issues. It is possible that this feature has been disabled at some point in the past. It is also possible that these "daytime driving lights" will only come on while the vehicle is in gear. In either case, I would definitely refer to your owner's manual to find out the details of how this system works, as many of today's auto manufacturers are starting to use a variety of different methods for enabling/disabling these types of features. Hope this helps and have a great day!
