Unplug them-- there should be a clasp of some sort behing the light. Just push in the release button and pull the plug. Of course this may not entirely solve your problem, I don't know why you want then disabled... Jody Let me tell you what could happen with them disconnected. Should you ever be… involved in a accident and it is caused by another driver not being able to see you, the first thing an insurance inspector will do is check to see if all of the ORIGINAL SAFETY EQUIPMENT IS WORKING OR WAS working at the time of the accident. ALL SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Your insurance company already knows if your vehicle is equipped with safety equipment and exactly what is supposed to be there, They could very well NOT PAY YOU A DIME should they find out that you have disabled safety equipment that is designed into the car. Just a little info before you disconnect those light,,,,I agree Jody, I don't understand why anyone would do it. (MORE)
The simple answer may be that the low beam side is burnt out. Replace the bulb. However, if both headlights have stopped working when switching to low beams, there may be a problem with the relay or the switch itself. If the cost of a relay is low for your car, it may be less expensive to simply …replace that component than to have it diagnosed in a repair shop. Replacement of the switch requires some disassembly of the steering column or dash in most vehicles. Check a specific service manual. (MORE)
What could be wrong if the low beams and high beams stopped working on a 2000 Toyota Tundra but the bulbs are fine and the daytime running light and the parking lights and blinkers still work?
If the high and low beam headlights stopped working on a 2000Toyota Tundra, the fault could be with the headlight relay switch.This is a large fuse located in the fuse box on top of the battery.
Answer . most like the low beam filiment in the right light is bad but the high beam filiment is still good, try replacing bulb. If replacing bulb does not fix problem then you probably have voltage problems and should check the voltage reading and the plug.
What would cause the daytime running lights and low beams to go out at the same time on a 2003 Toyota Corolla?
Answer . \nYou must have a cross wire or a loose wire somewhere you should check a good \nelectrian.
The daytime running lights and the high beams in your 1997 Sunfire don't work what might be the problem?
It's probably a bad fuse. Open the driver's door, the fuse box is right there on the left side of the dashboard. Remove the cover and locate the headlights fuse, pull it out and see if it's blown off. The metal filament should be burned or broken in half. The fuse cover also tells you what kind of f…use to use. Also try changing the switch itself. With it being a 97' the connection may have gone bad by now. A new switch is anywhere from $40-$70 while a used you can get for as little as $20 (MORE)
What would cause daytime running lights and check engine light and power windows and instrument gauges and lights to quit working as working?
All of these parts run on electricity, and for all of them to failwould be bad. Bad or burnt wiring could cause them not to work, ora alternator going bad could cause them not to work as well.
Is the daytime running light bulb same bulb as the low beam bulb on 98 Chevy Cavalier because the daytime running lights work but low beams don't when the switch is turned on High beams work also?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nOn my 97 Chevy Cavalier the daytime runnings lights are the Hi beams (brights). Have you replaced any of the bulbs?\n. \n. \n Answer \nYes, same bulb. This means your headlight wires are corroded and BOTH headlights lost the ground, so the circuit is open. The …wire harness runs in front of the radiator. Pull off the cowl as if changing your headlight bulbs. The inspect the wire harness for corrosion (green-blue grainy spots). Repair the corroded wire by cutting out the corroded part and bridging the gap with a new piece of wire. (MORE)
Answer . \nBelieve it or not, you might have 2 BURNT OUT LOW BEAMS. Ive seen that a few times.
Your running lights and daytime lights work but neither your low nor high beams work What if the fuses are good and the new headlight switch you installed didn't correct the problem Now what?
you have a grounding problem. check the littel green wire coming off of the light switch, by the fire wall... make sure it isn't touching anything else... good luck...
Do the daytime running lights or DRL in a 1999 Chevy Suburban 4x4 use separate bulbs from the low and high beams?
No, the DRL utilizes the LOW BEAM lamps (p/n 9006) there is a green indicator lamp on the dash that shows they are on. when you activate the headlight switch, this indicator will extiguish, to deactivate the DRL's While driving, simply depress the parking brake one (1) click. this only works on the …"classic" body style gm trucks. To deactivate the DRL's in the 2000-up gm trucks, depress the "dome override" button four (4) times rapidly, and you will hear a confirmation "ding". doing this also deactivates the "auto headlight" feature on pre 2003 models. . Yes (MORE)
Any idea how to troubleshoot faulty daytime running lights on a 1999 Chevy Suburban 4x4 that has a good DRL fuse and dash light along with working low and high beams?
This may sound funny, but make sure the parking brake is completely released Answer The daytime running lights have a fuse, relay, control module, and a diode. The last three are located under the left side of the instrument panel. They will all need to be checked. You may also have a short o…r open in the DRL circuit. since the high beams are working and they are the same bulbs as the DRL's. (MORE)
Why do Running Lights and Hi Beams work but low beams and fog lights don't in a 95 Explorer XLT all fuses ok?
Answer . \nJust had the same problem. Replace the Multi Function (turn signal) switch on the steering column
Why do low beams work when daytime driving lights are on but when auto or manually turning on the lights a left low beam does not work on a 1995 Ford Explorer?
Answer . Because your daytime running lamps use a reduced output of your high beam headlights. The low beam filament on your left headlight is out. Change your left headlight bulb, and your all set.
Both running lights and daytime lights are out but still have high beams on your 1999 VW New Beetle what could be the problem?
Check bulbs--Low been element could be burned out\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nCheck fuse for daytime running light module, make sure your park brake is not part way on.\nOr module may be bad.\nHigh beam's are not controled by module, that is the reason thy still weork.
The daytime running lights on my 1996 Chevy Silverado do not work Can you tell you what to check to fix them?
Fuses might need checking . A good place to start is your fuses and then check the actual lights.. I had that problem too, it might be the DRL module under the dash to the left of the ash tray. careful, its next to the airbag lines. it would be about the height of your right knee, if you seated …in the drivers seat. a small metal box about 2"x2" dark brown or gray color with one wire plug in it. its kinda hard to get out and its not cheap.

Both of the low beam lights stopped working at the same time on 2001 Aurora in both auto manual modes but High beam running lights work fine WHY?
Answer . You have different bulbs for low and high beam. Go to an auto parts store and tell them you need two bulbs for you car, low beam. Look in your owners manual on how to change your bulb. You shouldn't need any tools to do this.
Daytime running lights on a Honda Civic are the same as normalheadlights. To fix or replace them, locate the headlight housing inthe front of the car. Remove the plastic housing and replace thebulbs.
What would cause daytime running lights and fog lights to flicker while high-beam indicator on dash flickers on 1996 Pontiac Sun-fire - Headlights work fine in the on position?
Loosey Goosey? . That's kinda weird. I have a guess, though. I'd check for loose connections in the light sockets or wiring, primarily a loose ground wire. Let us know what you find. FriPilot
What can be checked that has caused the low beams even with newly replaced bulbs working on daytime running light voltage on low beam but fine on high beam ground fuses and sockets fine?
You can check the ground in the wiring if nothing else works. However, it would also be a good idea to see if you are just making a simple mistake. Sometimes the light-on switch is separate from the hi-beam/lo-beam switch; try pulling back on the turn signal lever while the light is on. It should sw…itch between hi and lo beam. (MORE)
1999 suburban Low beams head lights work but turn off when the high beams are on meaning that the two high beam light are on and two outside low beam lights are off?
Answer . Exactly, and this is normal. . Answer . Exactly, and this is normal.
1998 sunfire why does daytime lights flash then go off and the low beam doesn't work but the high beam does?
This seems to be a very common Sunfire problem. It seems GM didn't do to great of a job with the wiring harness. I have a 2000 Sunfire and just spend four hours chasing down the exact same problem. Check the three bulb wires. If you have 12 V on all three wires the reason is probably a poor ground c…onnection. On mine the lights are grounded to the chassis under the battery tray and air filter. Make sure it's properly grounded. Next trace the wiring back further. I found a large (15 pin) plug(under the battery tray)that had a hole ate through it from an earlier battery leak. To get to the plug you need to remove the battery and air cleaner box. I found that the ground pins where melted probably due to an power surge. I cut the ground wires on both sides of the plug and connected them directly instead of through the plug. Low- and high beam are working fine now. (MORE)
2000 Chevy Cavalier low beams do not work but day running lights and high beams work what could be wrong?
As a guess both low beams are burnt out The daytime running and high beams are the same light filament. Or the fuse or the relay for the low beams.
Why are my day time running lights and low beam lights not working but my high beams work on my 2000 sunfire gt?
I have a 98 sunfire gt and i have only high beams which only switch on sometimes and no low beams just day lights my shop told me it could be wiring or turn signal switch they looked and determined it was the switch so i just ordered it. They can be found on carpartwholesale.com or autopartwarehouse….com for only 30 or 70 with cruise control. only need a torx wrench and small screwdriver to replace it just snaps into the wiring harness.

Working on a 2002 Pontiac sunfire the daytime running lights will not work only the high beams Checked all fuses and bulbs?
Ok the DRLs don't work and what about the Low beams. Basically I had a similar problem that appears to be common on sunfires ranging from 98-04. The problem is in the head light wiring harness and there is a short some where in the harness that prevents power from being supplied to you lights. The… most common place for this short, is a couple of coroded wires that are under the window washer fluid reservoir. This is the most common place for the short due to the corrosive properties of the washer fluid. That's were mine was located however, I took my car to the mechanic because I didnt want the hassle and not the best with electical Cost at a mechanic about $250-$300 dollars. If you have the paitients to do it your self it will only cost you labor and a little electrical tape. Common problem with these sunfires do you research (MORE)
Why do the high beam headlights work but not the low beam headlights on a 1991 gmc 1500 daytime running light also work?
Because lights power the AK generator. there are little elves that power you car that are very very tiny. the elves use magic to make light.
Why dont high beam and low beam headlights stay on together. Lights work but low beams turn off when high beams are on.?
In most cases the high and low are separate elements in the same bulb and cannot work at the same time. Headlights pull a lot of power and to have them run together would be too much for your charging system to handle at once, not to mention the heat they would produce. Fog Lamps and Low beams… and Fog Lamps and HI beams. Fog Lamps and HI beams, in many states, you are not permitted to run HI Beams and Fog / Driving lamps simultaneously. There is an SAE directive on this. There is either a relay or DRL module that prevents the Fog/Driving lamps to be energized when the HI beams are activated. (MORE)
The daytime running light module on a 2000 Dodge Dakota is locatedunderneath the hood. It will be located on the inner fender on theleft side.
A blower motor that only works on high is normally caused by a defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack. DRL, do not have a clue.
What could be wrong with a 1998 Pontiac sunfire where the daytime running lights are flashing constantly but the regular and high beam lights work fine?
I have had this problem on my girlgfriends car. Check the wiring running to the lights behind the drivers side headlight under the battery box. The wires were sealed with duct tape from the factory and the connections have just corroded. It's actually a pretty easy fix but dont put it off too long b…ecause you eventually wont have lights at all. . (MORE)
Why do the high beams all 4 lights on my 66 Impala work but when I turn off the high beams the low beams 2 lights don't work?
I think the low beam lamps have two filaments. So it's possible that those low beam filaments in the "low beam" lamps are burnt out.. When the headlights are on dim, only the two outside bulbs burn. When the high beams are on then all four will burn.
What could be the cause of your high beam lights working and the low beams not on your Chevy Malibu?
These lights have 2 different "lights" in each of them. This occurs frequently. Change out the bulb and everything will be working fine once again.
Make sure fuse is installed in fuse box.. Sometimes a fuse has never been installed for this option or perhaps someone else has removed the fuse.. If a vehicle is equipped with DLRs then they have to be activated. It's probably a fuse. They are supposed to come on automatically anytime the engin…e is running. (MORE)
Left low beam light on my 2007 Dodge Caliber rt doesn't work but the high beam does. what is the problem?
it could be one of two things, there couild be a loose wire on that headlight socket or it could just be that the low beam just burnt out and you need to replace the headlight. brewski hey i had simalar problem exept it was my high beam i tried everything but then my check engine light came on for a…nother reason so my buddy with a code reader came and read the codes and clear them and now my headlight works so your problem could be a computer related just go in and clear your codes i used a dodge superchips programmer to clear the dtc any dondge programmer will work the on i used was made for my buddys 04 5.7 ram my car is a 07 caliber (MORE)
You need to remove the old light. Then you put in the new one. There are a lot of different cars made, this question can be answered better if the make and model and year of the vehicle was known.
Why Do your low beams and dash board lights not come on but your fog lights work and so do your high beams if you hold them on in a 1996 dodge ram 1500?
Remove the headlight switch and check it. You will probably find it and its plug melted.
Why do the low beam lights not work on my 1991 jeep Cherokee sport when all the other lights do including the high beams?
you have a bad headlight switch. easy to change out it's just a tiht fit under the dash
how do i fix my daytime running lights on my 2001 grand prix gt headlights work perfect
on the left side at the gauge light switch is a push button , push it 4 times and it should work
i checked the fuses and don't know if this is the problem---should i lood for somethin else?
It's called a Daytime Running Light Module or DRL or DTRL module. This controls/switches on the low beams automatically as Daytime running lights, it could be faulty, especially if your bulbs are fine (High and Low Beams both working). Required by law in Canada, but not the U.S. I believe. I just ha…d a safety check done here in Ontario for a used Neon I bought ,and I had to have them working to pass the safety. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate the module, to change it. Searched the net for location clues as it is not shown in any Haynes or Chilton's manuals, it is just mentioned in one sentence, no clues to location. Fortunately, I had a mechanic willing to "overlook" that detail! Yay! Guess he doesn't know where exactly it is either! He just said to make sure I manually turn on my lows during day driving to avoid attention from bored police. I looked everywhere that people on the internet said to look, but no luck for my 2000 neon?! (MORE)
When you turn the high beams on your 93 Cabriolet the left highbeam and fog light do not come on There is no power to either light but on low beam the headlights work?
There is one fuse for the left highbeam and one for the right. The left fuse was loose.
acid drips from your battery onto the wiring harness. corrodes a wire connector near rad support. bin there, done that.
When this happened on my 98 Dakota, it was a loose wire in the steering column. $4 part, $160 labor to find it. Good luck.
Why do the high beam lights work but not low beams and the high beam indicator stays on 2001 ford escape?
Most likely its a bad low-beam bulb or a fuse issue but I'd check the sockets/harnesses for corrosion, check the high beam switch, check wiring for shorts. See sources and related links below for bulb information.
Why would your brake lights not work and when you turn on your lights you only have high beams and when you try to change to low beams you have no low beam lights on a 1999 Chevy 3500 truck?
1999 Chevrolet 3500 Bulb Troubleshooting (check in this order): 1. Check Fuses 2. Check Bulbs 3. Check Relay(s) 4. Check Light Switch(es) 5. Check license plate light bulb and wiring 6. Check trailer hitch wiring harness 7. Check all wiring harnesses and wire Most likely its the fuse or a b…urnt bulb breaking the circuit. See sources and related links below for bulb information. Note that sometimes the license plate and/or the trailer hitch is wired into other circuits and can cause issues in other areas. Check to see what all is on the circuit with eht brake lights and low beams. Also, sometimes its wires grounding out somewhere on the vehicle. See sources and related links below for bulb information. See owner's manual for location and identification of fuses. (MORE)
Why is the day running lamps and the low beam lights not working but the high beam and parking lights working?
most likely the fuse for low beams is burned out, OR the actual bulbs, themselves, have burned out. in many cars, the low beam and the daytime running lights are the same bulb, with less amperage being used during the day, making them a tad less bright. But this constant usage wears the filament out…, faster, so they wear out earlier. ck bulbs first, or have autozone/parts store guy help you out. (MORE)
Check the top three: Bad fuse Bad light bulbs And if those check out OK, then check for bad wires to the lights. . Chances are good that the DRL module is toast (Daytime Running Light). This is located on the right hand side of the engine as your looking from the front of the truck. Locate…d on the right fender near the windshield washer tank. The module is about $125.00 ~ $150.00, cheaper from a wrecking yard. Now there could be a few things to keep in mind, emergency brake must be off, vehicle in gear and moved a few feet this should trigger the module, the lights should come on once the truck moves a few feet. Yeah I know....but they set this one up to get a signal from the speedometer to activate the Daytime running lights....so it needs to move before the DRL module gets the signal from the speedometer. Check the fuses in the black box on the same fender, the DRL fuse lives in there, not under the dash. (MORE)
You can,t switch between high and low beam in DRL mode. Only when you turn on the headlights with the HL switch.
