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
It is not fixed. I went to start my car to warm it up this morning and noticed the headlights weren't on. Being it is a Sunday (12-6-15) I can't do anything about it till tomorrow. I have less than 30,000 miles on my car. I will take it to the dealer in the morning and see what has to be done.
