Default 1990 Integra LS model

Howdy. Where is the relay that controls the lights coming on when you
turn on the ignition? Thanks.

You mean the Daytime Running Light relay? I can tell you never use your
parking brake.

It's behind the passenger side plastic kick panel, between the dash and the
floor. (The US model has the motorized shoulder belt relay in that
location).

Are your DRLs no longer working? Sometimes it's the resistor, not the
relay. You should check both. The resistor is deep in the engine
compartment, ahead of the left shock tower.

Howdy. I always use my parking brake so don't understand your
comment. Habit even on flat surfaces.

Yes, the DRLs do not come on automatically. This feature packed it in
years ago. BTW, I am in Vancouver so mine is a Canadian model.
Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

I will see if I can find the resistor/ relay

Then I take it back.

Your comment that the lights come on "when you turn on the ignition" is
indicative of not having the parking brake on. If the parking brake is on
when you start the car, the DRLs won't come on until it's released.

It's usually the relay. I can post a schematic (showing how to test the
relay with a multimeter) if you like.

Must be a Friday, brain in neutral. My DLDL do "not" come on hence
the where is the control that controls this function.

The schematic would come in handy. BIG thanks!!!!!!
