    1998 Pontiac Sunfire daylight running lights don't work. The signal on the dash flashes and sometimes it makes a clicking noise when I start the car.

    I have a similar issue with my 2001 Sunfire SLX. When I turn the ignition ON, it passes the self test but when i put it to drive I see the daytime light indicator for 1 or 2 secs then it goes on/off (oscillate) few time until it completely goes off and SERVICE light comes up! This doesn't happen if i turn the night lights on and put it to drive. But as soon as I turn the night lights OFF same problem observed. I dont know whats wrong with the daytime light. Can anyone please help.

    I have the same problem and I'm going to check the relay first as that is what makes the clicking noise.

    Same thing - the lights were working just fine until I brought my car into the shop for another problem. The mechanic called to let me know about the problem, but said they tried everything and couldn't fix it.

Had similiar problems with my 2001. Check the entire length of the headlamp wiring harness under the hood behind the grill. They are prone to corrosion from road debris etc. Peel off the tape and follow thw wires. I'll bet there will be a broken one. Pay particular attention to the pink one. Just clean up the broken one and fix it with a **** connector and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.

There is a wiring fault for sure and it is the harness, my experiences have taken me to the harness were it goes behind the washer fluid tank and up over the frame rail, the harness corrodes and the wires break there because they are under strain from body movement.

Drl and high beams dont work

Check the bulbs -- the daytime running lamps use the highbeams on the resistor -- There are two filliments per bulb one high; one low. If both high beam filliments are out nothing will work....replace bulbs if this is the case.
