He's probably right. You can find out for sure by simply swapping the DRL relay with one of the others in the UHJB (Under hood fuse box) and see if that resolves the problem. If it does, THEN go buy a new DRL relay.

ok . apologies on reviving and old thread. but i have the same exact problem . however i purposley removed my DRL relay so i wouldnt have my DRLs on. but i still would love my right highbeam back.

could i possibly keep them off while getting back my highbeams?

if not i can live. i added a pair of foglights that help, but on those midnight munchie runs on them back roads, it sure would be nice to have a pair of bright lights to go with my foggies

again my apologies for this damn old thread.

Yes, go to the How-To Library (Use forum jump at the bottom of this page.) and do a search for DRL. You just need to add a jumper wire to make it work.

when i rigged my drl to a switch so i could turn them on whenever i wanted, the right hi-beam would not work when i left the drl on. sounds like you possibly have a ground problem or your drl relay is bad...

Do remember though that when you select DRL mode that both lights are placed in series on that model Saturn so if one bulb is burned out the DRL's will not work because there is a open circuit. I tend to think there is a bad bulb here.
