Default Weird lights/fob and other problems...

So previously, my car would have the lights on automatically if in the dark as soon as I start my car. Now, my headlight/cluster lights do not come on until I put the car in gear. Also, when I hit my FOB to lock my car, none of the lights flash. The horn still goes off but no lights. I think these two issues are related.

My other issue is, my lamp monitor says my reverse lights are burnt out. I replaced both, used plenty of die-electric grease. Both the lights come on and work great. But my DIC still says the reverse lights are burnt out. Any ideas?

Thanks

The reverse light problem just sort of stopped, but I am still having the FOB issue.

Anyone?

I am assuming that you can get you headlights to come on with the headlilght switch?

My guess would be a fuse...

Yes they still work with the switch. They also still come on automatically. Just not until the car is in gear though.
