What would you like to do?
If no electrical equipment is working except headlights and chime on a 93 Grand AM what do you troubleshoot?
There is an in line fuse coming off the battery cable...check this first then check fuse panel inside car. Go to www.autozone.com, enter car info and click on repair manuals and look at the fuse locations under electrical section...good luck

Check wiring on back of lights, exchange globes with someone who has same car, check fuses(they should be labelled), check voltage after the headlight switch with inexpensive… multimeter. Use voltage tester with sharp probe to test voltages on the wires to see if power is getting to the lights and if not follow the wire back until you find voltage. i am getting a power but one of the lights is weak other is strong!! If that's the case, either something is going to ground on the weak side or the ground itself is weak. Check the bulb plug after unplugging it, looking for dirt, corrosion or damage. If dirty or corroded, it can be cleaned. After cleaned, apply some dielectric grease to the plug before reintalling. Always remember to never touch the bulb glass when changing bulbs! These bulbs heat up very rapidly. Skin or other oils can cause just enough insulation to result in uneven heating which can shatter the bulb.
I have the answer to your question about troubleshooting your headlights on your vehicle. I would isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs f…or low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illunimates with the headlight switch on. Good luck! check the wires, and check the fuse for your lowbeams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work. Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well. ya i second that notion -anonymous feb '05 CHECK THE DIMMER SWITCH.THAT IS THE PROBLEM MOST OF THE TIME. Measure for voltage at the light bulb clip first. It could be a bad set of bulbs. If you have no voltage, check fuses, and then check for voltage before the headlight switch. It could be a faulty headlight switch. Measuring a few voltages will tell you what the problem is. Change the headlight bulb. 99% of the time it is the bulb that is the problem. Most definitely check out the headlight dimmer control switch .... Ron J. the lamp is probably bad easy to check look at it. hi beam light do carry more current and tend to fail sooner
If the warning chime for seatbelt works on an Olds Delta 88 but the ignition and headlights on chime does not are they separate chimes?
they are two separate fuses. so two separate chimes. look at your fuse box.
Answer if you can get a copy of the Haynes repair manual, Dodge Neon 2000 thru 2003. Book #30036 it can help with the answer.
Until an expert comes along to give a complete answer, I will provide some info to get you started. The first step should always be to check to verify that the fuse(s) serving… that device is not "blown," and is properly installed. Always remember that a blown fuse strongly suggests that a short circuit has occured, and the fuse blew to protect the wiring from overheating which could result in a fire! So, when you encounter a blown fuse, always find and correct the fault which caused it, BEFORE REPLACING that blown fuse. If your problem is internal to the cruise control, or inside a "computer," you will require the service of a professional automotive technician. But to get started, the troubleshooting process should focus on: 1) a loose or "bad"[corrosion, etc.] wiring connection, or 2)an open circuit [a wire cut, pulled apart, etc.], or 3)a short circuit [a bare section of wire in contact with ground, such as bare metal,or pinched or chafed against a sharp metal edge, etc.]. For a more in depth discussion of electrial troubleshooting, and the use of tools/equipment, see the answer to: "How do I troubleshoot brake lights?"
How do you fix the sound for the headlights on and the key in ignition chime if it has stopped working?
you just need a new relay switch just go to auto zone, pep boys, or kragen and ask the people at the front to help
on the left side of the steering column is a knob that controls the lights. Pull it of push it until the beeping stops
I just had this problem. First check your fuses then disconnect the relay and reconnect it, they get loose from time to time i need to find the fuse
Your highbeam headlights do not work and your lowbeam lights go out when you use turn signal where do you troubleshoot?
I am actually having this problem.. here is mine... see if it relates to you. My headlights (on regular, low beam) do not work. I cannot get them to come on… in the high beam either. But, if I pull the blinker arm forward for the passing flash thing, they light up on high-beams (only for as long as I hold the lights on). I have found the problem to be a thing called "Multifunction Switch". My car is a 1997 Ford Taurus G.... See if that helps you any. It was my underlying issue and mine is getting fixed tonight. :) Good luck
It is important to know what causes things to stop working within a car. A blown fuse or bad wiring can cause the key and headlight chime to stop working.
At the heart of a chime is a piece of metal of exact dimensions. All objects have a natural frequency at which they will vibrate when given a certain amount of kinetic e…nergy. If this natural frequency is a the same frequency of a audible sound, then that is what you will hear.
check the fuses
Wind chimes can be made of various materials, including METAL,glass , shells wood. Most are made from metal tubes that are arranged in a circle with an object in the centre th…at can strike the tubes. Metal tubes are cut to various lengths which alters the sound they make when they are struck. The larger the tube, the deeper the sound. The tubes can be constructed in differing diameters too, which also changes their sound. Tubes with smaller diameters create a higher pitch than those with large diameters. Regardless of the size of the tubes, they work on the same principle vibration. When a tube is struck, it vibrates the tube. Unlike an instrument, the sound is independent of vibrations of the air within the tube Read more: How Does a Wind Chime Work? | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4568213_wind-chime-work.html#ixzz1rCAvAZZ8

Why do your turn signals work with headlights off but turn on and stay on with the headlights on 93 civic?
Check the contacts on the turn signal bulbs. Sounds like there may be a crack between the two contacts allowing the headlight/tailight voltage to cross over onto the tur…n signal contact. Hope this helps. firstname.lastname@example.org

Blown parklights/ dashlights fuse. headlight operate off a different circuit
check the fuses, bulbs, relays, headlight switch, and the multi function switch in steering column. also check to see if you have lost the ground to the bulb sockets.
Ensure the power is switched off
