Any time you have no power to the headlamps I would concentrate on a bad battery cable or ground cable or battery connection. It works now once in a while, but if you don't get it taken care of, it will soon fail totally. Trace and clean all connections starting from the battery back thru all connections and DON'T skip any that "look good".

Headlight adapter will depend on what type of aftermarket headlights you currently have. Many aftermarket headlights come with plug and play adapter. Meaning they will directly bolt onto your stock adapter. Sometimes, it is just cheaper to get another set of aftermarket headlights than looking for a rare adapter, which can be expensive and time consuming. Check out the headlights here, they all come with plug and play adapter.

Besure battery is full charged.(turn on headlights and look at them,they should be bright looking).If battery is cahrged,check main fues box under the hood.Look startre relay fuse.Should the fuze be o.k. then the next possible thing is the started. Lets back up a bit. While you are looking at the battery,remove the cables that connect to the battery and give then a cleaning.Reguardless. Some preventive maintenence never hurts with battery cables. Good luck

It is under the hood near the battery in the fuse box. The cover of the box tells you what number fuse you are looking for.

If you're talking about a battery... The + is positive, sometimes red, and connects to something with power such as your alternator. The - is negative, sometimes black, and connects to the ground such as the block or chassis.

It says in the corner...with a little battery sign. And in settings you can set it to show the percentage of how much battery you have left. Hope this is what you were looking for :-)

It is the 17th century. Looking at the number, 1600 years have gone, which is 16 centuries and it is 9 years into the next century, so it is the 17th century.

Are you speaking about the charger or the brand name product. If you are looking for a direct replacement of the branded product, try batterytender.com/ If you are looking for a battery minder, try a place like AutoZone.

pop the hood. above the headlights there is a "hole" more toward the fender with a plastic gear looking thing it turns to adjust the lamps. this is on a 97 but up to 2002 is pretty much the same.

People can purchase replacement headlights for a car by going into a auto store such as Autozone or by looking on online retailers for the exact parts. They can also be found from the car dealership where the owner bought the car.

Has your search for a CSB battery begun to frustrate you? Some local retailers don't sell these types of batteries. This is one reason why you may want to expand your search to the internet. By looking at different sites on the web, you can typically locate any type of battery that you are looking for.
