Hello
Drove my wife to post office today in the 96 Fleetwood,
Parking in front of the window with engine running i noticed my daytime running lights were not working,
I placed my ballcap over the sensor on top of the dash and a few seconds later all lights came on, so I know thats working,I flashed my flash to pass they work also.
Looking at fuse panel only thing I see is all fuses look good, Also with with the loss of DRL I think the little fiber optic lights on the fender corners are out.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks Oliver

I know my dad's 96 Eldorado's DTRL sytem works once the tranny is placed in gear, in park it turns off. Maybe the Fleetwood works the same???

It's your brights. Pull the stock back.

But it's more a euro thing. In the US you might get shot for flashing at someone moron to get out of the fast lane. :annoyed:

what the hell? why do they make it sound like some special feature? all it is, is a high beam switch! i think gm naming it ftp is kinda dumb IMO.

btw...anyone figure out how to disable these dam DRLs in the dam 96 brougham??

Flash to pass alwas seems to work better when followed by a stomping of the gas pedal...
