Need some help guys, yesterday went out for a drive. when we were coming home some one in front of us pulled over and got me to stop. they told me my DRL were going on and off. Can anybody tell me where the ground is for that front harness? I am going to clean all the contacts for the bulbs, to see if that helps.

Jim it is just "marty" on the forum. I have the manual for the 03 but cannot look it up until tomorrow but I will gladly help you if for some reason Marty does not see your request. Interesting that the person would stop you to tell you the problem, it is one of those things you are unlikely to find out on your own.

not sure which one is specifically for the DRL. I would imagine one of the front 4.
probably not 6 it's just a single ground wire/strap to the engine
but 7,8, or 9. might be good to make sure they are all clean.

not sure if you can read a wiring diagram. I can't, but I think this one says ground are at the 101 and 102 locations.
which would be the ones I indicated in the photos.

I think every thing is ok now. I will have to follow the wife in her car and get her to watch and see if they misbehave. Thanks for great pictures and wiring diagram Marty.
