Day Running Lights May Not Work Due to Failed Resistor on Saturn Vue

The day time running lights (DRL) resistor may fail causing the daytime running lights to stop working. Our technicians tell us a failed resistor will require replacement.

Daytime running lights stopped working. Now, when the vehicle is started, the DRL light flashes rapidly approximately 5-6 times and then goes off. Have not fixed the problem yet...wondering if there is a recall on this???????

need to buy new resistor also need new resistor for heated seats don't care about heated seats and turn on running lights and fog lights at dusk and dawn really don't need to fix this minor problem
when i select drive my DRL indicator lights up then starts to flicker for about six times then goes out.. so i do not have this safe feature operating correctly....

Daytime running lights stopped operating. Lights flickering when I hit a bump/pothole. Told that I need to replace old headlamp assembly due to being overpowered by newer headlamp assembly (driver side) to solve the electrical problem.

All other lights are working, but same as other reports. Green DRL light flashes rapidly then goes out.

Relays are fine. DRL don't work. Brights do work. I guess its the resistor.

I currently have this problem but do not see a viable solution. DRL resistor seems to work some of the time according to other people who have this problem
