The headlights work on a totally different relay than the parking and fog lights. The headlight relay or headlight fuse is usually blown when only the parking and fog lights work.
Break lights come on when you step on the break, they do not come on when the head lights are turned on.
Have you checked the fuses?
headlights and dash lights in 2001 sunfire wont turn on.
This can be due to a bad headlight switch. If it goes bad, most of the time you have no dash lights or headlights
There are a number of reasons why your parking lights won't turn off. There could be a wiring problem in the system.
my headlights work but my taillights and dash light dont work whats wrong
In that case, you probably don't have tail lights or clearance lights either.Check the fuses. If that's not it, you may have a faulty light switch.
put the parking brake on the first click. it wont engage the brake but will turn of the lights but if you have a stock radio it will start beeping at you as soon as you hit about 10mph
Theres a fuse, called DRL, if that's missing or blown, or if the parking brake is depressed a tiny bit, they wont come on.
that means your battery will be dead in the morning
Since the break lights turn on when the head lights are activated, the problem is probably in the wiring of your break lights. Someone may have accidentally disconnected the wires of your break lights to your head lights.
It could be a short in the wiring, or a fuse or the headlights themselves might be bad. I hope this helps
check dimmer switch for headlights
Bad parking/tailight fuse? Open in rheostat (dimmer switch)? Bad light switch? Bulbs?
The key is probably jammed into the ignition by the parking brake you put there
Look at your brake pedal where it connects under the dash. The problems you are having are both related to the brake pedal. There is a safety feature that won't allow you to shift your tranny until you have applied the brake, and since your brake lights are not coming on, there is either an electrical connection or a mechanical connection that is not working.
check for short to power in the circuit
You may have a blown fuse.
The flashing lights are probably the factory alarm.
my head lights wont come on ,,all other lights work ,,no head lights
Check the adjustment of the brake light switch.
with the key off, set the parking brake, that disables drl (daytime running lights). you can now turn the ign on and drl wont be on. you can now listen to radio etc w/o killing battery.
Will your lights headlights come on? Will anything work? Had something like that happen to me years ago. I had no lights and nothing worked. Turned out it was an alternator. There could be something else that would be wrong but, it would be something to check out.
try e brakes..turn the e brakes on and see if it turns off.if it does then you have suto headlights
