Asked by Aug 28, 2013 at 10:13 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Base Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced both headlamps. Replaced the DRL relay. Fuses ok.  Checked the junction connection under the battery, no corrosion. Installed a new multifunction switch.  Any ideas what is wrong?

Did you check the main fuses in the power distribution box under the hood?

I don't see anything that says anything about headlights. BATT 1 fuse mentions exterior lamps, but it also controls the power outlet (which doesn't work, cig lighter?) the horn and audio amp which do work, Thanks for your reply.

Try checking the headlight relays, the high beam may click but not connecting.

Do you mean the DRL relay?

Or is there a relay I don't know about?

We also turned on the lights with the ignition ON, switched between high and low beams and heard no clicking whatsoever under the hood at the power dist. box. There was no clicking at the interior fuse box. . The blue high beam indicator light comes on @ high beam and the daytime running lights work also. (DRL)

There is a relay box under the dash above the brake pedal, a real bear to get to.
