Chevrolet Equinox DRL Resistor May Fail
Chevrolet Equinox Problem
Average Mileage: 82,209 mi (19,000 mi - 104,000 mi)
Daytime Running Light dash indicator will flash approx. three times and the the daytime lights will go off. They will turn on all the lights when it is completely dark, but nothing will come on in the daytime or even foggy conditions. The headlight configuration on my 2005 equinox is 1. Auto 2. Running Lights and 3. On
Note: there is no "OFF" because the car is equipped with daytime running lights. DRL
