Check to make sure your parking brake is not partially engaged. If the parking brake is engaged even to one click off from the released position the DRL module will be disengaged. Also there may be a problem with the parking brake position sensor which is responsible for determining if the parking brake is partially engaged.

I haven't done this to my ridgeline, but I did it to my 1992 accord.  You can have any auto radio shop add a wire from the aux input on the back of the factory radio that comes out in a hidden place, like one of the little storage places under the radio.  Just plug it into your ipod and push the XM/AUX button on your radio, and you're good to go.  Should cost under $100.

SOURCE: Need full time daytime running lights

Just hard wire the lights into anything that is hot when the car is running. If your looking for some kind of alternate solution please let me know. Also did you want them on also when the headlights are off? You can also hard wire them with a switch inside the cab and that way you can flip the switch whenever you would like.
Thank you,

Ground problem. Your ground for the radio is right behind the radio or to the left at the steering column base. Loosen and retighten the bolt. Could also be an internal radio problem/solder joint/chip. I fix my own radios, because they are mine and I have time. Parts are cheap. Most people go with after market before they want to pay my price.

Why won't the running lights shut off

The running lights are low level lights and not full power like the headlights. They are designed to work in daytime only.

You should have a switch to turn them off. Mine is on the steering wheel turn signal stalk.
hope this helps

My honda ridgeline tail light does not work but the brake lights do. I just replaced the bulb. What could be the problem?

Check the way you have installed the bulb.if it is a combination stop/tail light.It really only goes in one way as the pins are offset, however it can be forced.also check the wiring plug as it may have a dry joint in the wiring

No tail lights working on honda 2008 CR-V

Did you install the converter, which allows you to use the separate turn signal bulbs? If not, then you did pop the fuse.
