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???????
exactly where is the dlr "resistor" and how to remove and replace it on 2007 Saturn vue
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....
DRL Resistor for day lights is not working,never with new one. So I took the resistor out. All lights still work just no day lights
Mine also quit working. I replaced the resistor and dtey quit again in about 5 miniutes. back to the drawing board....
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.
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
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
