While operating the 2008 GMC Envoy on an interstate I observed what appeared to be a lack of light when the low beam headlights were turned on. I drove to a rest area and confirmed that the low beam headlights were inoperative. The bulbs were removed and both bulb filaments appeared intact. Fuses, breakers and relays were checked for secure seating. The high beam headlights were operative and all other lights functioned. I am aware of documentation that covers the issue but only up to the 2007 model year. There are other complaints on file describing similar issues. The unsafe condition that resulted was the absence of forward lighting while operating a motor vehicle during times that lighting should be used. It is my belief that a solid state relay, delco part number 15016745, in the #46 position in the engine compartment fuse panel, is apparently the cause of the lighting failure. No injuries, or damages resulted from the in operative low beam headlight issue.

My dim lights have quit working recently on my 2008 GMC Envoy while driving down the highway. Has happened 4 times so far. Last time was 11/2/16. Bright lights still work. I found a GMC recall on years 2006-2007 ref the headlamp driver module which causes this problem. It seems they should include this year also. Extremely dangerous situation.

The vehicle was taken to a mechanic who changed the low beams, relay, switch and checked the fuses, but the low beams continued to randomly short without warning.
