Daytime running lights won't shut off

Got a problem with the DRL's - the key isn't even in the ignition & they won't turn off. I need to find the daytime running light module so that I don't have to take the cables off the batteries every time I shut down....

    I went to get into my '98 dodge neon last night and the lights were on. I noticed on the dashboard that the highbeam light was lit up and I was unable to turn the lights off while the car was shut off. Just wondering if this is something I can fix on my own? I am starting to think the car has a mind of its own. I've had to pull the fuse out when I got home so the lights would go off! I don't want to have to do this everytime but I just put alot of money into the car and don't really want another expense! Thanks!

    I have the same problem. Had to take the fuse out to disconect the lights. However, the fuse is located under the hood by the battery. In order to drive the car at night I need to put it in, then try to take it out in the dark! Sucks, any other ideas?

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 .

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 .

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 .

Where is the DRL relay located?


There is no DRL relay , has a lamp control module .
The daytime running lamps (DRL) activate under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.


?€¢
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.

When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.

Where is the Daytime driving Lamp relay located


follow the wires to the drl relay. It must be inline from the regular light switch to the headlamps. I have a 1990 Cadillac Deville that has an aftermarket module that controls the daytime running lamps, and it is mounted on the driver's side wheel well.

Some relays are found in the fuse box under the hood.

If your daytime running lamps burnt out, take it to an electrical shop and ask them to check it out.

If you buy an aftermarket daytime running lamp kit, they can install it for you.

But, I agree, you should check for voltage and function at the relay for the daytime running lamps on your Astro.

But, if all else fails, the electrical shop should be able to diagnose and repair this problem.

The DRL light stands for Daytime Running Lights.
It will not hurt anything by driving the car.
I am not sure that it is even broken, does it go off when you turn the lights on?
