1998 SL2
Default 1998 Saturn SL2 Daytime Running Lights (DRLS) not working

I have a 1998 Saturn SL2 Automatic and the daytime running lights (DRLS) are currently out. They were working when I first bought the car and that was the only light on the dash. I would occasionally drive it around my yard for a little bit until the battery died but other than that, it sat for about a year as I did not yet have the money to get it on the road. When I got the money to put it on the road, I got a new battery as the old one was dead. When I changed the battery, the daytime running lights stopped working and the indicator was off and the brake light came on. Both my high beams work fine so it is probably not the bulbs. I know the parking brake and the DRLs are related in some way and I remember pulling the parking brake while the battery was dead at one point (I wish I had not done that). Could this be the reason they don't work anymore? Will I have to replace the whole parking brake? I know in the fuse box, there is a drl module and I'm wondering if I replace that, the issue will be resolved. Any advice is appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If the BRAKE light is on because the parking brake sensor thinks the parking brake is engaged then the DRL's will stay off.

I believe you have to remove the center console to get to it, pull the cupholders out (not too far, the bulb is on a short leash) then there's a bolt on either side footwell and 2 in the rear section of the console. Most of the time they're 7mm hex head bolts, but sometimes they're Torx (T10? not sure size).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yes! It'a red brake light. That's probably the issue. When I get a chance, I will try to remove the center console. Thank you so much! I will let you know if that resolves the issue.
