I have a 2008 Pontiac wave sedan and cant find the DLR

Customer Question

I have a 2008 Pontiac wave sedan and cant find the DLR module. It is not where it should be under the dash. Instead there is a security system box factory installed marked dawoo
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes the DLR and low beam lights are not working. All the dash lights do The high beams work. I have checked the grounds , fuses, swapped out the relays and the bulbs. Checked the park break switch
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Pontiac Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I have attached what it looks like.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I know what it looks like I just can't find it in the 2 possible places that it's supposed to be. One is to the left of the Hvac controls under the dash like the picture you just showed me and the other is under the hood attached to the abs control bracket. As I don't have abs the dealer said it would be under the dash, it's not. I have taken it completely apart and it's not there. There is a anti theft control module in it's place that's factory installed.

my car the dealer said isn't part of the recall, not sure why
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 11 months ago.

And my car the dealer said isn't part of the recall, not sure why


did not mean to imply that the RECALL is still in force.........
was posting that I can supply "Repair procedure" for the RECALL
The RECALL is no longer in force as of January 2016


IF the Module is NOT in that location, then it could have been removed, or Dealer Install DRL was installed
There is no other location listed

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 11 months ago.


I will have to research at work tomorrow, as all my Factory Manuals point to the dash as posted
Have you looked behind the Alarm Module?

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 11 months ago.

will OPT OUT at this time to see if someone else has info
Will post back tomorrow after I have a look at other Service Manuals

We looked it's not behind there either.
Expert:  GM Bob replied 11 months ago.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help.

I looked at the schematics for Notchback and Hatchback.

The Hatchback uses a DRL module

The Notchback does not.

Can you post your VIN#

I will check tomorrow to see if your car takes a module. Can you post your module part#

Please get back with me.

Thank you

Expert:  GM Bob replied 11 months ago.

Do you have the part# ***** the module you have?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
95333617 That is what the dealer told me I needed.
Expert:  GM Bob replied 11 months ago.

The car you have is Canadian built.

The GM parts department does not list a module for your car.

What problem are you having?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
There are no day time running lights and no low beams. High beams work fine, it's not the bulbs, tried other new bulbs and they don't work, tried fuses also. swapped relays, nothing changed.
Expert:  GM Bob replied 11 months ago.

Can you read a schematic?

Here is a link

My wife forced me to take it in to the dealer to get fixed once and for all. With so many professionalservices telling me different things she was done. Lol
Expert:  GM Bob replied 11 months ago.

If you still need help let me know.

Thank you

Expert:  GM Bob replied 10 months ago.

Did you have any luck getting it fixed?

I will close the question if you want me to.
