my 99 DRL and Headlights wont come on whats causing this?

Hi, if the high beams work, try swapping out the DRL relay. It's in the big box under the hood. DRL wiring is a bit complicated. BCM and DRL module both come into play. Best approach is to try simple things and hope they work. If not, you'll need a meter to troubleshoot wiring. Let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

what kind of hard disk do I need? I had a disk crash. Thanks.

What makes you think you had a HD crash?

My friend, let me suggest to you that unless you have the skills and knowledge to make this repair, please pay the $28.00 or so, at the Big Box store and have them do this for you. What is a big box? staples, office max, office depot, best buy, others. There certainly is something like this close by you?

Print on CD/DVD

well..this new approach to inserting an actual CD/DVD is quite a high tech marvel. I've heard, through the digital grapevine, that this is a 50/50 deal at best.
