Unhappy 99 Lost daytime running lights

Hi guys, its been a while, but I have been busy with house projects instead of truck projects ;-)

I went out for a coffee last night, and when I started the truck the headlights stayed off until I actually turned the switch, then worked normally

Given that they worked fine on my way to work on Thurs, I can only assume a wire SOMEWHERE has either corroded off a contact, or burned thru.

Before I waste a ton of time trying to trace it on my own, does anybody have prior experience with a similar problem and can shorten my list of places to look?

Check the DRL module, it may be cracked letting moisture in causing a short or corrosion.
It should be behind the front bumper, rectangle shaped thing, you should be able to see it from the drivers side wheel well. Mine was cracked but it did the opposite, the lights would not turn off even in the off position.

Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
