Re: 300E 1993 153,000 km
If you have replace your alternator recently and installed an aftermarket (that is not Bosch) this could cause the problem you have. This may also indicate that you need to replace your alternator there are 2 possibilities for the 300 if you have the self leveling rear suspension you need the larger one. The 300 uses only slightly less power than the 300te but still far more than most cars only use Bosch even rebuilt they have an excellent warranty and will pay for towing if it fails. Good Luck To You!!

I have a 1997 cadillac deville that has both 'daytime running lamps' when put into gear and 'twilight sentinel' which turns the headlamps and parking lamps on at night, and goes off during the day or when it is bright enough.
There is an adjustable delay for the twilight sentinel to turn the headlights off after the ignition key is removed and it is night time.
I had the 'daytime running lamps' installed on a 1990 Cadillac Deville that turns the headlamps only on when the ignition key is switched to on with an aftermarket module. The headlamps are about 70% or so as bright as the regular twiilight sentinel headlamps and parking lights and are designed to go on during the day.
The twilight sentinel overrides this feature when it gets dark outside.
I had the daytime running lamps installed by an auto electric shop that specializes in electrical systems, alarms, stereos, etc.
The position of the roof is determined by a pair of small electronic switches pushed up against a gear ajacent to the gear that drives the roof back and forth.
When "calibrating" the roof position to the logic (controller) You need to seperate the motor from the roof asy. command it wide open, then manually slide your roof open. Once close, use a flat-head scrwedriver to push the cords where the gear normally would the rest of the way to the alignment marks.
This is located near the back of the track, the two silver hatch marks on the plastic tilt slide should be just behind the track opening if I'm remembering correctly.
Once everything is lined up, it should work great. If your off by a tooth or two, pull the motor, and move it with the scewdriver, and try again.
Section 01-17: Roof Panel, Sliding—Electric
1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
The sliding roof panel (502B98):
is available as an option.
is electrically operated through the accessory delay relay (controlled by generic electronic module (GEM)).
is of self-storing design.
requires a specific headliner.
utilizes a unique roof console and dome lamp.
has an air deflector.
The electrical system operates in the following manner:
Two switches control movement of the roof panel.
When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch (15B691) is rocked rearward, the roof sliding outer glass panel (502A82) slides into the storage space between the roof trim panel (51968) and the roof panel, exposing an opening over the front seats.
When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully back in the storage space, the roof sliding outer glass panel moves forward from the storage position.
The rear portion of the roof sliding outer glass panel moves upward on two lifter arms near the end of the forward travel, allowing a weather-tight seal when the roof sliding outer glass panel is closed.
An AUTO feature allows the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch to be touched momentarily to cause the roof panel to automatically move to the fully open position.
When the TILT roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully forward, the rear of the roof sliding outer glass panel pops up to the VENT position.
With the roof sliding outer glass panel in the VENT position, rocking the TILT roof sliding panel switch rearward closes the roof sliding outer glass panel.

Check to make sure your parking brake is not partially engaged. If the parking brake is engaged even to one click off from the released position the DRL module will be disengaged. Also there may be a problem with the parking brake position sensor which is responsible for determining if the parking brake is partially engaged.
