    DRL out, but it's not

    A friend of mine told me my driver's side DRL was out, so I got out and looked at it. He was right. So I tried the turn signal. Bulb came on and blinked fine. When I shut the turn signal off, the DRL stayed on, matching the passenger side one. Fairly often now it seems like only the passenger side comes on when I start the car, but after a single use of the left turn signal, the driver's side "wakes up" and works fine. Any ideas?

    are you the original owner? maybe someone disabled the DRLs and then rewired them back, now it's flakey.

    just clip/bend the DRL pin in the module and be done with it. not a fan of the DRL look on these cars anyway.

    I don't believe he did, but I can find out. Maybe I should look into disabling them because you're right, I guess these cars don't look that great with the amber DRLs.

    I performed the DRL disable procedure here: http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answe...drl/index.html

    I broke off the H pin, rather than cut the wiring harness. DRLs are no more and everything else seems to work, so perhaps I am done with this.
