Default DRL Location 2003 Ram 1500

Just looking for the location of the drl module on line myself but I can't seem to find it.I would like to change it as I am having problems with one day lamps not coming on and also the headlight occasionally on the same side.Some have said it is on the left fender and now the firewall.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your time.Jeds67

You don't have a DRL module, it's a setting in the Forward Control Module. Here's what the service manual says about it.


DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS
Vehicles manufactured for sale in Canada illuminate the high beam filament of both headlamp bulbs at a reduced intensity when the engine is running and the exterior lamps are turned off. The FCM must be programmed with the appropriate country code for this feature to be enabled. Once enabled, anytime the FCM receives electronic messages over the PCI data bus from the PCM indicating the engine is running and from the EMIC indicating the status of the headlamp switch exterior lighting input is Off, the FCM provides a pulse width modulated voltage output to the proper headlamp bulb filaments through the right and left high beam output circuits to produce illumination at a reduced intensity.

DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS
NOTE: Before performing the following tests, determine whether the headlamp low and high beams operate.
If the headlamp low and high beams are also inoperative, diagnose and repair that problem before attempting
to repair the Daytime Running Lamps.

CONDITION
DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS
WILL NOT ILLUMINATE

POSSIBLE CAUSES
1. Incorrect FCM programming. 2. Faulty FCM inputs or outputs.

CORRECTION
1. Use a diagnostic scan tool to check and
program correct country code into FCM as
required.
2. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the
FCM inputs or outputs. Refer to the
appropriate diagnostic information.
