You're welcome.

Do you have another bulb to try? Chances are the bulb is good but you never know. I hope it isn't the DRL module.

Were you able to check the wiring with a multimeter?

I didn't notice if they were working when I bought the car (used) over 2 years ago or if they stopped working somewhere along the way. I would imagine that if it's a blown fuse, more that just my daytime running lights would be affected.

Any ideas?

EDIT: everything (including lights), is working fine and the battery isn't low.
I have the same problem with the DLRs. Did you end up fixing it? What did you do? Thanks

Haven't had a chance to look at it (with my meter). My wife's power window regulator died and I'm having a bitch of a time with it. F'ing Honda (CRV) make things so complicated.

I'll post back when I have a chance.

Have you tried turning your high-beams on and seeing if one of them is out?

+1, your DRL's are just your high beams but at a lower output through the DRL module.

I'm hijacking my own thread here.... took the CRV door apart and the cable on the regulator had broke... this is a 2005 and I've never had as many problems with a Honda as I have this one. Anyway, dealer quotes me $540 for a new one... Imagine if they did the labour too? Over $750 easy. B@st@rds.
I found another at a scrap yard for $180, just waiting for them to call me when they have it... saved myself $500+...

Then I'll look at my DRL's on the SE R.

Since there was no answer to this, I though I chip in.

I just looked at wiring diagram for 2005/2006. The DRL unit located by steering shaft under the dash. There is two outputs on DRL unit, one for each high beam bulb.

Note that DRL unit has inputs making sure these situations are true BEFORE its active:

- Handbrake switch must be off
- Gear selector switch not in park (if automatic)
- High beams off
- Low beams off

DRL units are basically a PWM, which is used in many other applications (like electric motor speed control, electic heat control, Remote controlled vehicles, planes and boats and can be bought for under $10, so don't go out your way for a new module:

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I don't know how else to check. Both High beam bulbs are good, only the Passenger side high beam is turning on and now I just realized both my fogs are not working?

Anyone with anymore input on this? Help :S

You're sure both bulbs are good? As per my post #2, I had only one high beam bulb working which was causing the DRLs to not work. I replaced the non-working bulb and the DRLs came back on.

Unfortunately, other than fuses, I do not know what else you can check.

I was checking the fogs and heard the relays clicking so I thought to check the connections to the fogs and sure enough I left the bulbs unplugged earlier this year when I had the bumper cover off...

But after fixing the fogs, the DRL still don't work... both high beam bulbs are good and I hear a relay click when I try the high beams.

Have you tried the working bulb in the non-working side and vice versa? Other than that you need to check the handbrake switch to make sure it's functioning and the wiring isn't open anywhere, and check the DRL module to see if you're getting the correct signals. And check fuses.

Yeah, I tried a new bulb and it still did not work. Only passenger side lights up.

I went to check the voltage and it is only putting out about 4 V when the high beam is turned on at the stalk. It may be the DRL module, but how the heck to you check that?

Hi All,

I joined this form because I have the exact same issues with my DRL. My drivers side high beam is out (changed last night with a new one and still out) and my DRL are still not on. Could this be an issue that Nissan knows about? Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Paul

Ok guys... Issue RESOLVED!!!

I did a search and found out that the guys on Maxima forum have had the exact same issue and have a solution.

The issue is a few bad solder connections in the DRL module. If you've gone through and made sure the issue isn't the bulb, fuses or handbrake switch, etc... then try this.

Remove the lower plastic cover from the steering wheel column. (Watch the wiring and tubing connected to it. Don't damage them) To remove there are two screws on the bottom right and inside the fuse box. Remove those and carefully pop off the cover which is held in place by several clips.


The DRL module is above the gas pedal. It is clipped into a metal bracket. To remove just undo the bolt holding the metal clip to the metal frame of the firewall. Then using screwdriver, push in the clip holding each of the 3 cable connectors and disconnect individually


The DRL module is inside the plastic box that is clipped into place by 4 tabs in the inside. You could carefully wedge some small screwdriver bits into the container next to the 4 tabs. (2 screwdriver bits shown below)


The DRL module removed. To think the dealership/Nissan charges a few hundred dollars for some relays, capacitors, diodes and transistors is sickening!!!


There are 3 solder connections I touched up. But I think the lower left (1st one) is the culprit for me. In any case check to see if all solder connections are good. It's not very obvious but mine looked like there was a small crack separating the pin from the board (hardly noticeable).


After soldering, go and test the module before reassembling everything.

Once it is working, reassemble everything. I broke the plastic clip that holds the metal bracket to the DRL module so I had to improvise and use a ring clamp to reassemble the DRL module so that it can be reattached.


Reattach and enjoy a functioning DRL and highbeams.
