you still have aloose ground motor to body motor to battery under dash have fun
Check headlights and dashboard lights first. If no/minimal power for the lights then replace battery.
You could have a short in your electrical system, your battery might need a charge or be replaced.
because the battery is the source of the power for the headlights. there could be an issue with the battery or the alternator can be failing.
the problem is in your high beam switch. there is a short in it and it needs to be replaced
Interesting?? I had my starter and battery replaced on my 2002 Saturn VUE and within a few months my low beams ands daytime running lights went out. Dealer says the post in the fuse block is burnt and the entire block needs to be replaced at a cost of over $600.
a flat battery
Sounds like your alternator and battery need to be replaced soon.
Check the fuses
The fuses are located under the hood beside the battery.
Your battery is weak, or your your alternator is not charging battery.
I have no idea. Did you ever solve this? My dash board lights became very dim whenever I had the headlights on and my battery light kicked on occasionally. I thought it was the alternator so I just replaced it. The battery light issue is solved but the dash light brightness is still extremely low whenever I turn the headlights on.
Yes, headlights drain battery power, but it is only major if you leave them on when you turn the car off, because the car might not start up after a bit.
Headlights should not be left on while the vehicle is not in use. If you are not driving, you will just drain your battery while having your headlights on.
depending on you battery usually between 2-4 hours if you leave your headlights on. My Car battery was completly dead after almost 4 when i wrote my exam.
even if you disconnect the battery the headlights stay on????????????? check the headlight switch
Replace battery cable.
There is a simple test to check the battey. With the headlights on, try and start the car. If the headlights go out the battery is weak and should be replaced. If they stay on then suspect the starter is bad. Another thing it might be is the start relay or fuse. Refer to your owners manual for the specific location of these items.
Well there is 2 ways to check....it could be your alternater or your battery....to check to see if it is your alternater pull of your positive cable and if the car dies it is your alternater if your car don't die then it is the battery and you might want to get that replaced
It normally leads straight down to the starter. However, I have seen some that lead into a smaller wire, going right to the battery. It all depends on if the wiring has been messed with previously on your car, or if a battery cable has been replaced.
I think it is a dying battery
There is no fuse between the headlights and the battery. If the headlights are dead, then your problem comes down to: battery (may have some voltage, but no current) and the battery cables.
i had the exact same problem and i also replaced the switch and relay. the problem was in the wiring right at the positive post on the battery. also had to clean up many of the fuse links as well.
