2007 VUE 2.2L
2007 ION-3 Sedan
Default 2007 VUE Daytime Driving Lights

Hi all.
With only about 120.000 kms or 75,000 miles on it, I noticed the DRL no longer come one during the day. The full time headlights continue to come on automatically.
I noticed years ago the DRL little green light no longer came on but the lights did but now they no longer come on at all.
Is this a simple fix or is it going to be costly?
I was thinking of asking the dealership to repair it on my next oil change.
Thank you

I intentionally unplugged the daylight sensor up on the dash so that the full headlights come on anytime the car is started. Maybe your sensor went south?

ETA I see there is also a relay for the daytime lights.

cam, either search past threads about Vue DRLs or remove the driver side wheel splash shield to reveal a shelf behind the headlight hold a ceramic resistor. It may have burned out. The DRL indicator probably stays off if the drl resistor fails. If damaged, shop around for the lowest cost. Salvage yards may have good ones that aren't cracked or burned out.
