If you don't care to have the daytime running lights on at all. look for a fuse that is in your owner manual for the daytime running lights and remove it and see if your lights turn off .... but every thing else works in your car .... there are many things that could cause this problem to happen like faulty daylight running lights module is bad or your parking brake switch is not work proper to with the daytime running light circuit one thing you can try when the emergency brake is pushed the daytime running lights always in all cars should turn off ... to be honest you need to get a wiring diagram from the chevy dealer and follow the diagram to find out which part is bad and cause this issue cause there are fuses and relay and modules that make this system work right ..... if you dont understand the wiring diagram you will have to take your car to a electrical person who fixes only electrical problems not a mechanic ..... if you find the fuse that turns off the daytime running lights and everything else works leave it cause you still will have headlights and parking lights and dash lights by turning on the light switch at night

    Very helpfull suggestions, thank you very much. However I can find no separate fuse for the running lights, only right/ left headlights. Pulling them disables the lights completely which what I have been doing, pull when I park, put in when I drive. The emergency brake does not turn them off either. Maybe a more complex problem some where else.

06 Malibu LT Dash lights shut off


hi, gm vech. are elec.complex with logic that is all there own. im a retired ford tech, and gm would drive me crazy sometimes. now some ideas, your dash light are controlled with an ecm, keep in mind, your dashlights and tail lights are on the same circut. i would check your batt. cables, if your ground cable has a high resistance it could cause issues. in fords they had bad dimmer switches that would cause the same issue. if you have someone with an obd2scanner it might have a code.hope that helps.

2005 Malibu classic day time running lights resistor how to fine it


Hey Joe , the resistor you refer to is actually a light sensitive transistor , an it's called an ambient light sensor ! It is located in the top center of the dash pad , that little round bulb ! To replace it you have to Remove the instrument panel (I/P) trim pad. Are your Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Inoperative ?
  1. Expose the ambient light sensor to a bright incandescent lamp.
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position.
  4. Ensure the parking brake is disengaged.
  5. Block the wheels.
  6. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
Do the daytime running lights (DRL) illuminate?
??????

try to depress the parking brake ONE CLICK to turn them off.
You are probably spot on when dirrecting your attention to the trailor wiring as there is a master power wire that would have been installed to power the relay box that your vehicle would have been wired with.
Try the parking brake... it will bypass / override the auto daylight illumination protocall and extinguish the daytime running lights as well.

if you have to hold the switch so the high beams stay on then that indicates a bad/worn switch,you could have 2 problems the day time running light relay may have a problem with it.i would first replace the headlight switch at the base of the steering colume as by the info you supply its not changing to the high beam side without holding the switch in position.

This sounds like how the headlights on this vehicle are designed to operate. They can be manually turned on if in DRL mode. Setting the park brake before turning the ignition on should keep them from lighting, otherwise they are always on. The light sensor switches between lowbeam and daytime running light modes.
