Daytime Driving Lights In-op

Our daytime driving lights on our 2001 Monaco Dynasty have stopped working. We replaced the fuse but that did not help. The headlights work properly on both low and high beams. Any suggestions as to where we should look next to correct this issue?

You really don't need the DRL's. I don't think that people have a problem seeing a 9 foot wide 13 foot high box coming at them. Eddie Elk.

Was the fuse blown ?
DRL's usually operate on reduced voltage supplied to the high beams, so traffic can tell if you're coming towards or travelling the same direction as them . There is a module with a voltage reducer in the system that may be shot.

Required in some states and Canada.

Ok so here in Canada DRLs are required by law. My 2003 DSDP has a DRL module that controls the daytime running lights (it did not have DRL when the dealer imported it into Canada). Mine gave out and even though I had part and model number, all the "authorized" resellers never heard of it. I emailed the company direct (its located here in Canada) but they never bothered replying.

When I took it in for servicing this spring I asked my local shop if they could find the part. They said it took a lot of convincing to get the authorized dealers to check and finally order the part (about $75). They didn't get blown off as they do a fair amount of business with different suppliers.

Pics below of the module.

The fuse did not appear to be blown, but we changed it anyway. Not knowing where the module is, I will have to look at the wiring diagrams to see if I can locate it.

Usually the DRL's go out when the parking brake is engaged. If that switch is not functioning the DRL's will stay out.

On my Imperial which is similar to your coach the module is in the front electrical bay under the drivers window. It is a module on a pigtail.
Like said above the lights go out when the parking brake is applied.
