Here are the 2 diagrams for the circuit. Test the system and see what's needed. It could be the wire to the park brake switch. Check the fuses first.

You mean the daytime running light module, not the lighting control module?

Yes bert,it seems someone removed the module before I bought the car.Here in Canada daytime running lights are compulsory.This car was safety checked and passed without this module!I've got until Feb 11 to have this issue resolved by the garage and previous owner.I have no idea what this unit cost or where I can get one.The connector for this module is on the left of the rad and is covered in a baggy!Looks like a lot of trouble for this garage.

You could check for a used one here. They may not show it there but if they have a car there, you could call and ask. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Just make sure to tell them it's the Daytime running light module that they have and not the lighting control module.
