How to install a Grote Low Beam DRL (44040) module on a 2002 Ford Escape?

Title pretty much says it all... DRL module failed on my 2002 Ford Escape, bought the Grote to replace it. Wondering mainly if I should mount it where the factory one was mounted (under the steering wheel) or under the hood...

Okay, this is pretty simple. There are three wires:
1. Pink - Goes to your ignition circuit - provides power to the module when the ignition switch is in the ON position this wire should also have an inline fuse .
2. Yellow - this one goes to the headlamp low-beam circuit on your vehicle - provides power to the healamps any time the ignition switch is on and the headlamp switch is off.
3. Blue - this one goes to your park/marker lamp circuit - signals the module that the headlamp switch has been turned on and cuts power from the yellow wire so headlamps can operate normally.

Your car should work very well with this:
Go to the engine compartment fuse and relay box. Here you will find fuses for the low beam headlamps and the high beam headlamps. There are fuses for the left and right sides. Don't worry about whether you are working with the left or the right, because both of these fuses get their power from the low beam relay - it splits beyween left and right after the relay. If you power one of these fuses, you will power them both. The yellow wire can connect either to the fuse itself (with a fuse tap) or you can splice into the low beam headlamp wiring as it comes out of the fuse block. Where the ER FRONT harness plugs in to the fuse block the headlamp circuits are GREEN for the high beam and YELLOW for the low beam. Look for Pins 16 and 17. (These will be the easiest to identify because they are right next to each other) Pin 16 should be GREEN and Pin 17 will be YELLOW. The YELLOW wire from the DRL module connects to the YELLOW wire at Pin 17.

Next is the PINK wire on the DRL. On the same connector (ER FRONT) at the fuse block, Pin #11 should have two wires: a RED/BLACK wire and a PINK wire. Splice the PINK wire from the DRL to the PINK wire that comes out of this connector. - this wire is only hot with the key in the ON position.

The BLUE wire on the DRL wil have to connect to either the left or right side marker lamp circuit. The easiest place to do this would be at the headlamp assembly. The marker circuits will be a GREEN/ORANGE wire at the left headlamp assembly, or you can go to the PINK wire at the right headlamp assembly. (The left side would probably be the easiest.) It is important to hook to one of these wires and not one of the turn signal or headlamp circuits. It will not function properly if you do this.
If you hook to a headlamp circuit, it won't work at all and if you hook to the turn signal it will cause your headlamps to flash off every time the turn signal flashes on.

Turn the ignition switch on, and you should have DRL headlamps. Check the function of all of your lights after installation, including the high- beams and turn signal - just to make sure it is wired correctly.

GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

2010. where is DRL module located?


Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) NOTE: The smart junction box (SJB) must be configured when installing a new module. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .
The DRL system operates the low beam headlamps at a reduced intensity. The SJB supplies pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage to illuminate the low beam headlamps at a reduced intensity when the following conditions are met:
  • The headlamp switch is not in the HEADLAMPS ON position.
  • The ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • The transmission is not in PARK (P).
This dealer only repair ,unless you have the ford IDS (factory scan tool ) .

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.
Lamp Control Module (LCM)

HEADLIGHTS WONT TURN OFF WITH SWITCH ON A 2002 FORD ESCAPE


Do they stay on with high and low beam? If high or low beam make a difference then you likely need a multi-function switch. If they stay on regardless of high or low beam your Daytime Running Light Module (DRL) may be faulty. It should be located on the rad support, ahead of the radiator. Once you located it, unplug it and see if your lights go out. If they do, replace the DRL. If they do not you likely need a headlight switch.

Daylights not working


10A fuse 16 in the central junction box supplies power to the DRL module. 15A fuse 15 in the battery junction box (BJB) supplies power to the DRL relay. DRL module output passes through 15A fuse 12 in the BJB and 15A fuses 2 and 3 in the BJB and is applied to the headlights. If all fuses are OK, the problem may be in the DRL relay, the DRL module or associated wiring

Daytime running lights not working


Assuming this is an LX, check 7.5A fuses 9 and 5 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box. Fuse 9 applies power to the DRL indicator light in the gauge assembly which connects to the DRL control unit. Fuse 5 supplies power to the DRL control unit when the ignition is on. Also check 100A fuse 41 in the underhood fuse/relay box which supplies power to the headlight relays. Setting the headlight switch to HEAD causes the headlight relays to close and apply power through 20A fuses 45 and 43 in the underhood fuse/relay box to the low beams. Low beam power also passes through the DRL diode to close the high beam cut relay and prevent high beam use during DRL operation.

I imported a o2 town car executive model into canada.how do i get the daytime running lites to work.Is there a drl module already installed or do i have to buy one.If there is one ...where is it .and whats...


The original lighting module supplies separate power to the left and right sides for headlamp operation. You will have to wire in the aftermarket module accordingly. These are the factory wire colors at the module. Left Low = Dark Blue/ white tracer, Right Low = Dark Green/ Orange tracer, High beam = Light Green/ Black tracer.

No headlights


You need to start by checking the fuse for your headlights (low beams). The DRL could be be bad, but I have not seen them go out very often.
