My car has that little green sitcker in the door that says it was made for canada or whatever. So does that mean I am supposed to have daytime running lights, because they have never worked if they were supposed to. The lights only come on when I am not in park and it is dark out, it doesnt matter is the TS is on or off, they come on no matter what.
I took the dash grate off with the light senson and put my car in drive and played with it. I held my thumb over the sensor for a minute or two and the lights never came on.
So I take it my first choice would be is to replace it?
I took it out and blew it off and put it back in and nothing happened. If it is this little piece, how much am I looking at paying for a new one? Can I get them from any vehicle that have the sensor or just the same year as mine?
I really hate having to switch the lights on manually.

If your car really is a Canadian-issue car, one tell-tale sign is B-pillar mounted front belts instead of door-mounted ones. This should ring true for any year 87-91.

My seatbelts are mounted on the B-pillar and not on the door.
