    Purpose? To look good.

    When it works, it does that very well.

    Re: Small light inside headlamp

    Okay. Then i have to assume both of mine are burned out because no matter what position the headlight switch is in, the lights never turn on. Are they supposed to turn on in the parking light position? I noticed the amber turn signals don't in that position.

    I think they are parking lights. They look great after a remote start.

    Thanks! My next purchase should be the Cadillac shop manuals. They sure are spendy! I see the discs on eBay but prefer paper manuals. Especially since removing the front facsia is involved.

    I plan on LED moding mine so they match the Xenon headlights.

    I bought one of the disc manuals off of e-bay and was very disappointed. Save you bucks, IMHO.

    This evening my little light went out so I give it a tap, a rap, a bang, a smack and then went crazy on it... dead. Time to pull it off and change 'em. Maybe I'll go led, but for sure I think i will do a YouTube on it as soon as the weather breaks a little.

    1 of the small bulbs I think its the Daytime running light ? I also have 1 dead but I am going to wait when I take my car to get the headlights casing dried or whatever the routine to get the moisture out maybe there's a hole somewhere that lets in air or water.

    The DRL's are the front signal lamps. They are illuminated continuously anytime the ambient light senses it's daytime and the car is not in Park. When you use your signal light, the car cycles the lamp on/off.

    That small lamp everyone is discussing, GM calls a front position lamp.
