2002 GMC Sonoma, is there a way to disconnect auto lights, just turning them off doesn't work. Truck will just shut off going down the road, have replaced steering column and brain, all lights everyth


Does yours have ZR2 option.?
The automatic lamp control (ALC) system and the daytime running lamps (DRL) feature, except the Canadian version, can be temporarily disabled by performing the following procedure:
  1. Turn the ignition to RUN.
  2. Press the DOME OVERRIDE button 4 times within 6 seconds.
A chime will sound informing you that the system is off. The system will remain disabled until the ignition is cycled off and then on or by pressing the DOME OVERRIDE button 4 more times within 6 seconds. The chime will sound again signaling that the system has been reactivated.
What brain did you replace ? You people crack me up , trying to save money by doing it yourself . You have no idea of the complexity of the system . You could have taken to a Qualified repair shop an spent less . Why on earth do you thing this has anything to do with the truck shutting off ? An it could have been as easy as hooking up the Tech 2 factory scan tool . There are a number of DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes that could be set for the ALC .
DTC B2648
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp relay coil control circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.7 volts and 4.7 volts, the DRL will be commanded ON. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 0.2 volts and 1.0 volts, the ALC will be commanded ON.
  1. Install a scan tool.
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. With a scan tool, observe the ambient light sensor parameter in the Body Control Module (BCM) data list .
Does the scan tool indicate that the ambient light sensor parameter is within the specified range?
0.2-4.7 V
DTC B2647
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.7 volts and 4.7 volts, the DRL will be commanded ON. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage between 0.2 volts and 1.0 volts, the ALC will be commanded ON.
DTC B1398
And , if it was the BCM - body control module you replace , It's no wonder the truck shuts off , Don't know if your aware of it , but that brain needs to be programmed .
Important: If the module is replaced, the module must be programmed prior to performing the Passlock Learn procedure.
  1. Ensure that the following conditions exist in order to prepare for BCM programming:
  2. ?€¢
    The battery is fully charged.


    ?€¢
    The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


    ?€¢
    All accessories are turned OFF.


    ?€¢
    All modules and devices are connected and functioning properly before programming.

  3. Follow the SPS instructions on the Techline Terminal and scan tool to program the BCM.
  4. If the BCM fails to accept the program, perform the following steps:
?€¢
Inspect all BCM connections.


?€¢
Verify that the SPS Techline Terminal and scan tool have the latest software version.

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 .

2006 grand Prix the drl stay on and will not go off if they do go off the come back on with nobody around the car keeps running the battery dead ????? Ready to burn it


Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The ambient light sensor is used to monitor outside lighting conditions. The ambient light sensor provides a voltage signal that will vary between 0.2 and 4.9 volts depending on outside lighting conditions. The body control module (BCM) provides a 5-volt reference signal to the ambient light sensor. The ambient light sensor is permanently grounded at ground G202. The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit to determine if outside lighting conditions are correct for either daytime running lights (DRL) or automatic lamp control (ALC) when the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position. In daylight conditions the BCM will command the low beam headlamps ON at reduced intensityy. Any function or condition that turns on the headlamps will cancel DRL operation.
There could be a DTC stored in the BCM pointing to a problem !

Turn the headlamp switch to the OFF position.
Do the low and high beam headlamps remain OFF?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

Remove the appropriate low or high relay.
Do the lamps turn OFF?

Locate the ambient light sensor


Automatic Headlamps- Vehicles with the automatic headlamps option are equipped with a unique headlamp switch that includes an A (Automatic) position and have a sun load sensor located on the top of the instrument panel to sense ambient light levels. When the A position of the headlamp switch is selected while the engine is running, the headlamps are turned ON and OFF automatically as ambient light levels dictate.

My htc has a dark screen and still works and by dark i mean you can barley see any thing but sometimes the screen goes back to normal light


Is your phone a smart phone?? Does it have something called ambient light sensor (light sensor).??? Check your phone manual. If that is the case then you can turn it off. Ambient light sensor is a function that senses the light outside and automatically adjust the brightness of the screen. But sometimes it goofes up. So you can go to settings> display settings> brightness> if it is auto then turn it to manual as per your convenience. Again depending on your phone model the settings may vary. I hope this helps.

Screen darkens randomly as if ambient light sensor were kicking in. I have the ambient light sensor turned off!


The Ambient Light Sensor isn't perfect, but if you're having the same problem I had, it's not an issue with the Ambient Light Sensor. Rather, your solution will be turning DCR (Dynamic Contrast Ratio) to Off.
Go to the PICTURE menu and choose Picture Mode. You can turn off DCR in one of two ways: Choose "Custom" and set it manually, or choose "Movie" or "Game" for your picture mode. (The "Movie" and "Game" default settings include DCR=off, whereas "Home" will include DCR=on.)
Keep in mind that you will need to make these changes for each input (HDMI, Comp, AV, DTV/TV). Also, if you continue to have trouble you can also try playing with Adaptive Luma under the "Custom" settings.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE Remove Ambient Light Sensor


Actually, just wipe it off with a soft clean cloth. Shouldn't get too dirty, maybe dusty with road grime as the other parts of the interior.

Perhaps there is a problem with the circuit.
