Having problems with your 2004 Pontiac Sunfire ?

Day time running lights not working

\015 High and low beams are working fine. after starting car everything is fine, but when you put car into gear (automatic trans) the DRL indicator and headlights flash rapidly about 5 times, then service light with wrench symbol comes on and stays on. High and low beams still work, but day time running lights do not. \012\012this malfunction started when there was a poor connection at the neg battery terminal. the connection was so poor that the car would not start. i cleaned the terminal, reconnected and car started fine after that, but now the DRL do not work as mentioned. \012\012I also have a remote starter that will not work now. it is an astrostart 2106. I turned the remote switch off with battery disconnected and back on with battery connected, to reset the remote, but still doesn't work. it attempts to start car 3 times and then shuts down.\015

1997 Hyundai Accent is acting funny in the headlight department. At first my day-time running lights didn't work and low, high, and flashers were fine. Now, day-time running lights work, high beams work, and flashers work, but the low beams alternate every day or so between working, left side not working, and right side not working. I've checked the fuses, checked the bulbs, and checked the sockets for the bulbs. All are fine. What could be causing this? (Have yet to check relays.)


There's only one relay, but two fuses, both located in the underhood fuse/relay box.\015\012\015\012\015\012Sounds like you have a wiring problem si ... 1997 Hyundai Accent

Tail lights and dash lights are not commin on. back up lights brake lights and turn signals all still work. I think it has something to do with some type of switching device for the day time running lights. Its a 2000 escalade 4x4. Under normal secumstances the 2000 escalade can not run its fog lights and high beams at the same time. When my tail lights are out I can run both my fogs and high beams. To me it seems the day time running lights have kicked on and and now i cant turn on my own light


It sounds like you may have blown a fuse the tail lights and dash lights are usually on the same fuse. Do you have the owners manual? That will show you where the fuse boxes are located and which fuse does what. If you find a blown fuse and it blows ... 2000 Cadillac Escalade

We recently went out to eat and and the head lights worked when we went into the restaurant, after we came back out(half hour later) neither the day time running lights could turn on, the headlights when you turned on the switch, and the left rear tail light wouldn't turn on, but the running lights, parking lights, turn signals, brake lights (both), hazards and brights all worked. Nothing else seemed affected either. Not sure where to start checking for the problem.


Start with the simple...that would be fuses and relays. Go to your fuse box and check the fuses that power your headlights. The fact that the issue affects both headlights indicates a failure that has both lights in common. So first check fuses, i ... Volkswagen Jetta

I have a 2001 PT Cruiser, It runs good for 20-30 minutes then quits running; after 5-10 minutes it will start up and run sometimes all day. The next time it may quit running 2 -3 times in the day. Also all dash lights will turn off, if I smack the horn everything will start working again. Thank you

2003 Jetta car will start and run for a few days, then all of a sudden, it stops running. It also seems to drain the battery. I replaced the battery twice with a brand new battery.

When this initially started, I was driving and the dash lights all blinked a few times and then the car stopped running. After we jumped the battery, it ran fine for a few days.
