I hope it helped everyone else with this problem on here. Did it fix your DRLs?
This worked for me, I had it working in just over 1hr time with these instructions.
My DRL originally was working intermittently but eventually it stopped working at all. When high beams were turned on just the right side light was working and the left non working high beam light bulb was good and had 10.8volts at the socket (not sure what is suppose to be there).
Thanks for this great writeup NismoAltimaGuy and would like to give credit the original author (at maxima.org?)
My Altima hasn't had driving lights or the one high beam for a long time. Finally got around to checking the module.
Sure enough, all 3 of the solders were cracked, just like in your pics.
Five minutes of soldering and she works like new.
My thanks go out to you guys that figure this out, take the time to put up pictures and then post for others to use.
Thank you so much for showing this tutorial, it helped me fix my high beam problem! I needed to get my car safetied and I thought i had no other options but to go to the "stealership". Thanks so much NismoAltimaGuy, you rock!
Now I just have to fix one of my low beams, I suspect it's a bulb issue.
Add me to the stats. My DRLs, and Driver side Highbeam stopped working this last Tuesday. My module is now on my kitchen table, just waiting for the Soldering Iron to make it here in the next 2 hrs. Can't wait to see if this is my issue too, as I have hair-line cracks at all three locations too. I'll let you guys know later... Thanks too...
