Default '06 Reno headlamp and all-the time lamp

Greetings,

I have seen alot in here about Firenzas with the headlights and all-the-time lights not working, with the high beams the only ones that still work.
Has anyone heard of such for the '06 Reno?
Not too terribly car savvy, I wager I should just take it to the dealership to get problem solved...people in the streets are getting pissed as I highbeam them at night...

have you tried replacing the bulbs? they might just be blown. if not check the fuse. lol I would try this before taking it to the dealer it might be as simple as that. dealers usually have to pencil you in which takes a while when if one of those is the problem it can easily be fixed in a matter of minutes.

The fuses are OK. Have not checked the lamps. I figured it'd be pretty odd if the headlights and daylights both burned out at the smae exact moment. I will check today.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I trust it would take more than unplugging the daylight fuse to have things up and running again or is it possible that I could nip the problem in the bud right there?

from my understanding the headlights and daylights are the same bulb just as daylights they are only on at a certain percentage of full power. people have pulled the daylight plug in order to expand bulb life by not haveing them on all the time. check the bulbs if you say the fuse is ok. if it's not the bulbs i would probably take it to the dealer.

thats what i mean. your bulbs are probably toast. if not, then your switch is bad since they don't turn on.

your headlight assembly contains 3 bulbs. corner marker(turn signal), low beam, high beam.

when your headlight switch is off, your low beams are on at a certain percentage of normal power. not only does this steal power from your ignition system(like all electric components), it also shortens the life of your bulbs.

there is a sticky thread around here somewhere that explains where the DRL(daytime running lights) connector is. when you unplug the connector, the headlight switch still works normally. the only difference is that you don't have your low beams on at all time. more juice from your battery goes to other components, like your ignition/fuel system.

Thanks for the heads up. I appreciate it. Can this be done by hand would you say or will tools have to be involved?
