Default NO day time running lights!

Hey guys quick ?

I have a 97ram/1500-318Magnum.

Now all of a sudden I have NO day time,But when I put the lights on I HAVE LOW and HIGH..

I don't get it,considering the running lights get 50% of the LOWS..
Not quite sure what relay or fuse is for the running lights.My owners manual say's something about arking light's ect...It's a 15amp fuse.

I did how ever hit all fuse's with a multi-meter and did "continuity" test and there all good.Even the big guy's under the hood in the distribution box!

I test'd ALL relay's in the distribution box as well,,
Could you guy's please advise where else I can check...

I heard that there's a day time relay under the dash some where, is that true?

Thanks in advance,
Billster1500

Probably a DRL module failure from what you're describing.

Yes I think so too now!
I down loaded a service manual and it mention a "module"..
Now that I know it's there and where it is,
I'm very certain that's what it is

Thank's for the reply bud!
