B0502 CHEVROLET Description

The Body Control Module (BCM) provides control for the Right Daylight Running Lamp (DRL) relay circuit. The BCM grounds the RH DRL relay control circuit in order to energize the RH DRL relay and turn ON the RF turn signal. This allows the RF turn signal to be used for DRL and approach lighting functions. The BCM monitors the voltage level on the RH DRL relay control circuit. When the BCM commands the relay ON, the voltage level on the RH DRL relay control circuit should be low. When the relay is OFF, the voltage on the RH DRL relay control circuit should be high. If the BCM detects a voltage level other than expected, a malfunction is present and a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set.
