Headlights only work at night (or in dim light)

Asked by May 18, 2015 at 04:46 PM about the 2007 Pontiac G6 GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I am having an issue with my headlights not working during the day. The day lights
do come on once the car is put into drive, reverse and neutral, but not in park. During
the day the light switch will pretty much not work at all with the exception of the high
beam "flash." The auto light switch, the manual lights, and the high beams are non
functional during the day. At night the lights do come on and the high beams are
functional. I have to get my car inspected next week and don't have a lot of extra cash
so I am desperate at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

most cars the daylight will go off in park. If you turn you lights on manually it should turn on. I think your ok as far as headlights goes

The issue I am having is that I can't control the lights during the day or night. The lights do work at night but the switch doesn't work at all. I would have thought it was the switch itself but the turn signals still work, but I am unable to switch the parking light, headlights, or high beams on manually which I will need to do during the inspection.

hey kmm9698, did u ever figure out was wrong with your headlights. mine is having the same exact problem
