SOURCE: I have a 2003 Saturn

I am having the exact same problem on my 2001 Saturn SL1. I went to Murray's Auto Parts Store in MI and it was 140.00!! for the switch. I'm interested in finding out what you did and if there is any cheap way to fix this.

SOURCE: do the daytime running lights goes off went the headlight are on

Daytime running lites are the hi beam lites running on reduced voltage. So when you turn on your lites the voltage goes up to normal and you have hi beam lites

I have a 2011 C200 W204. The headlights are always on when the dimmed daytime running lights are turned on? How do I turn the Xenons off? I am in New Zealand & the car is a Japanese imported model.


I think you could use this manual method instead.. My nephew who is a
full time mechanic uses most of the times, and all mechanics look up to manuals. It's very easy he gets it from. www.reliable-store.com

1999 GMC Yukon headlights will not turn off. These are not daytime running lights. I manually turn them on and off. Now in the off position they remain on. Had do disconnect my battery to turn off.


Bad switch or relay. Do this when the light are stuck on disconnect switch and see if headlight goes out also do this check for continuity at the switch both on and off if continuity with both replace switch

I need clarification on 2003 Chev Malibu DRL problems:


That piece you think is a ceramic DRL module is a resistor , When in DRL mode voltage to the low beam headlamps circuit goes through that resistor dimming the headlamps from low beam to daytime running lamps . It sounds to me like you need a new resistor ,but without doing some electrical testing it could be a lot of things . The DRL relay in the under hood fuse box could have a problem , could be the BCM - body control module , the ambient light sensor etc... Here is how daytime running lamps work .
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
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 daytime running lights (DRL) or the headlights. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. With the headlight switch in the OFF position, the headlights will either be turned ON or OFF, after an approximate 30 second delay depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The HTR A/C IGN fuse in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will either turn on or off the daytime running lamps, depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G101. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate.

If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column.

Can t turn head lights off while car is on 2005 Chrysler 300


This is because you have day time running head lights. Asa safety feature the lights are made to be on when ever the car is on. There is a procedure for turning the lights off and it is outlined in your factory vehicle manual.

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.
