2007+ Model Year DRL Wire Fried?
Hey everyone, I don't really post much on here because my car has been pretty dang reliable so far (knock on wood. 92,000 miles), but I have discovered a problem that hopefully some of you know about. I drive a 2008 G5 and I've noticed for well over a year that the daytime running lights do not come on. I've checked all the fuses, which are all good, and today I finally cared enough to check the wiring. I discovered that the wiring harness near the radiator looked melted and disfigured. I cut the plastic apart and found my problem which looks like a resistor wire of some sort is completely burned and melted. I have a friend with a 2007 Cobalt and he let me check his this afternoon because his DRL's don't come on and sure enough, he has the same problem. Also a manager at Wendy's here in town has a 2007 G5 and we often comment on each others cars when I'm at the drive thru and I asked him today if his DRL's worked and he said no. He even told me he went to a dealer to see how much it would cost and they told him upwards of $500 to replace the whole front harness. Is this a problem that GM is aware of and if so, are they doing anything for their customers? I don't care for DRL's personally because they're ugly, but there are many people who care for them because they value their safety. Thanks for any help you might have!
