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
The DRL indicator lights up and flashes a handful of times on the dash and then goes off. The daytime running lights are not working.
Passenger headlights do not work, only the high beams work. Tried replacing the inside fuse it did not help. Also have problems with TC/ABS almost had a accident.
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.
Found the defective resistor, rusted and cracked. Will replace and see if day running lights work.
DRL will not activate. Light flashes at start up and lights do not come on. Standard headlights work fine.
DRl doesnt worl Resistor Bad where can i get a resister that i dont hafto go to a dealer aenp@zoominternet.net Roger pritts
DRL are off. Dash light flases a few times and then goes off completely- Second time I had an issue with the DRL.
Daytime running lguts stopped working, indicator light flashes on dashboard, changed fuse, still won't work. Problem not fixed yet
They have replaced the resister and the BMU several times and still can not fix the problem. It has been 7 weeks now. I keep getting different reasons why this is happening and their TAC team keeps telling them to do different things and trying to cost me more money.
