01 Malibu service vehicle soon light

Hi. I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu with a service vehicle soon light on. My daytime running lights do not work during daylight, but in the evening every thing works fine and I don't even get the service vehicle soon light on. I know there are relays that control this, but is it one of my automatic light relays possibly? Help please before I take it in and spend alot of money for something I can possibly fix myself.

Wellthe DRL are not the same as the automatic headlights. Maybe a fuse is bad or something. At night, it is the automatic headlights that come on.

There is a seperate relay for DRL vs. the headlamps them selves. Check the relay. It will be in the underhood fuse block.

If the DRL's don't work, this specific vehicle will set a check engine light, but when you check the code, there will be none. I tried to "unplug" my DRL's and had this happen. When the accessorie control module sees the DRL's not working, it tells the PCM to turn on the SVS light. I unplugged the resistor for the DRL's which is behind the steel bumper on the front of the car to attempt this. I ended up having to ground a wire out on the accessorry control module to fake it out and still have no check engine light. The resistor behind the front bumper could be your problem. It's got a big porcelin heat sink on it and 2 wires on the plug...
