I recently bought a 99 chevy cavalier coupe. Everything works nice on it except for my Daytime Running Lights (DRL). During the day, they do not work and the light on my dash does not light up or flash. And when I turn on the headlights, I have no low-beams. There is only High-beams that work. Nobody seems to have a real answer to this and I am hoping you could tell me what it is. I already changed the DRL Relay, and that did not help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Do you

There is a connector under the battery box (need a mirror to see it).
It's where all (I mean ALL) the headlight wires come together.
It corrodes with battery leakage and after awhile, you got it, DRLs (and other lights), don't work or do wierd things.
Read the other posts about DRLs for a complete rundown by another mechanic (brian) that has experienced it personally and has pics to help.
Hope this helps, VIC
