2004 Civic DX

So the girlfriend is buying her mothers old civic which is turning into a headache for me. I'll be making a lot of posts with questions I am sure but this one is wiring.

The day time running lights don't come on. The mech her mother took it to said it was a three hundred dollar fix and that is as much info as I can get out of her. So other than the obvious bulbs and fuses are there any electrical components I need to figure out or is this a grounding issue? Would really appreciate any help in this and all my future questions.

Have you taken the car back to the dealership for the headlight recall?

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

From what I have seen and read, the DRL controller probably needs the components resoldered to the circuit board (mostly just the relays IIRC).
Easy and free fix if you can solder.

Look on youtube?
