Thanks M_H_RITZEL. I'm only familiar enough with GM's daytime running lamps to know they're hard to figure out. I don't like anything on my cars that computers do automatically for me that I can do myself, like turning off dome lights or locking a sliding door when I close it long after I pressed the lock button. The engineers cater to the people who like those toys, which is fine, but they forget about the rest of us who just want basic, reliable transportation. That's why I'm sticking with my rusty trusty '88 Grand Caravan.
Then again, daytime running lights are nice for those of us up north where people don't turn their lights on when it's snowing or raining and their cars blend into the road and can't be seen. But I wonder why the engineers insist on using a computer module to pulse the high beams at 80 percent duty cycle and causes them to glare in other people's rear view mirrors, when a simple ten-dollar relay running the low beams would do the same thing and be less annoying. I worry about what I'm missing by driving around so often with my mirror set to "night" during the daytime.
Thanks again for the information.
