Have you figured out the problem?

    My question has nothing to do with car alarms. When you turn on the headlights, the daytime running lights turn off, & high & low beams will not come on.

How disable Twilight on 99 Cadillac Deville


  • Examine the left dash panel to find the headlight switch. This is the control you use to turn the headlights on or off, with the exception of the daytime-running lights.
  • Look directly beneath the headlight switch. You'll see a small lever. This is called the "Twilight Sentinel." Move the lever all the way to the left to the "Off" position.
  • Turn the headlight switch to the "Parking Lights" mode. This icon has a symbol of two small bulbs. The daytime-running lights are now turned off.

    1998 Lumina lights don't work at night!The lights work during the day but not at night. Does anyone know how to fix it?


    Theres a sensor in the middle of the dash by the front windshield that detects sunlight and triggers the automatic headlights. The main headlights and daytime running lights might be on a different circuit, in which case they daytime running lamps would turn off at night and the main headlights would turn on, indicating the main headlights arent working and the daytime running lamps are working as intended.

    I would check all the fuses related to headlights, check the bulbs and check the switch, then last the light sensor on the dash.

    My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


    Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

    Headlights wont work properly


    Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

    It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.

    Daytime running lights work but go out when I turn headlights on. Ruled out headlight switch, bulbs, fuses, relay, ground, and DRL module. 98 silverado 1500 has no high beams. headlights work with parking...


    If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column.
