Ok, maybe this might help narrow down what the problem/part is, as I don't have a manual
'94 Bonneville, made in US but sold in Canada
4 door SE, 3.8L not turbo
Serial 1G2HX52L6R42 XXXXXX - not sure if suppose to post serial #
Comes with Daytime running lights and auto sensor on dash to turn on at dusk, no HUD.
Also on the switch dash plate, can regulate how long lights stay on after car turns off.
- Doesn't happen right away and only affects headlights. Dash, turn, marker, tail lights are all ok.
- Can pull out/turn on lights and doesn't make a difference, only that the other lights (marker, tail, etc) come on.
- Doesn't matter, daylight or dark.
- Highbeams work at night with lights on auto or if I pull/turn on the switch.
- I'd be driving along after about 30 mins just the headlights start flicking, and if I unplug one of the headlights, the other stays on like normal. So I'm driving around with one headlight right now.
So if it was a short in the switch, wouldn't all the lights flicker and happen right away? Which makes me believe it has to do something with the daylight sensor and a heat issue.
You can get this for $100? That'* a far cry from what they're trying to soak me at the GM dealership, I'd get one right away. I think the #1995405 is what I need.
Also, how muich is a left fog lamp? Mine is cracked, so I got clear tape on it for now...duct tape seems to block the light
(maybe I should post a picture/short video of the car showing the how the lights wigwag? Might do that and post it on my site...)

I show for a 94 (Canada):
Module, DRL: 25624030 $107 US at GMPD (for reference)
Sensor, DRL: 914032 $26.75
Your headlamp switch is:
Add w/o Auto Headlamps 1995389 $40.33
Add w/Auto Headlamps 1995405 $98.52
Keep in mind these are US prices shown at a 40% discount.
My advice at this point is to dig into the schematics and factory service manuals and properly diagnose the faulty component as either DRL related or switch related.
THEN we'll locate you a good part at a wrecker in the US.
