It sounds like the LCM (Lighting Control Module) which is a black box located directly above the gas pedal has a burnt relay inside of it. You can either have the box replaced which is costly or take the box to an electronic repair shop and have them replace the relay inside of it. If you know how to solder you can do the job yourself, you just need to buy the right replay from a parts store.

Headlight sensor I need to replace the sensor that decides when to turn on my headlights when they're in automatic mode. In the middle of the day, the systems says my lights should be on and dims my dashboard lights. For some reason it also stops my left-turn signal from working. If I manually turn of the lights everything works again, but then my turn signal doesn't work at night and I'm always having to remember to turn the auto headlights off during the day.

I have a 2000 Camaro. My problem is front turn signal/fog light related. First...my fog lights don't come on at all. No biggie but mentioning it due to my second part.
