    are you talking about the headlights? Those are the daytime running lights, it is supposed to do that. Push your parking brake in and see if they go off. If they do it is working properly.

    They didn't have DRLs till 97. The switch is on? The dome over ride button only works on NBS's

    Wrong. DRLs have been around since 1995 on GM trucks/SUVs.

    Yup, my 96 is got them. You need to put a resistor in to fake them out.

    96s had DRLs and no one said anything about the dome override. Pushing the park brake in has always turned them off.

    When you push on the parking break just enough it shuts the lights off, but yes, then the e-brake light is on, but if you pull the fuse then the lights shutoff and no more worrying.. but the ddl indicator stays on in the instrument cluster but oo well..

    Re: My Lights wont turn off

    My DRL's have not worked as long as I have had mine. 03.
    But then again I don't really like them so I don't care. Everything else works just fine.

    I do belive it was 95 that they started them too.
    I know 96 had them.

    drls have been on trucks since 92, not always standard, but an option, then in like 95 they became standard.

    I think it was standard in 95 cause every 95 I have seen has the DRL dash light.
