My dash lights dont work I dont know why but to add to the problem they come on after the car is turned off and this happens sometime after I park the car and go into work I have a 2002 cavilier?
Probably the headlight switch is bad. When you turn the switch on, it sends current to the dash dimmer switch. Sometimes the contacts get loose in the headlight switch and it needs to be replaced.
The rear lights of your car will still on even if your car was off because the switch was turned on and it will still remain on until the battery's out. Another possibility, if the headlight switch is off and the ignition switch is off, the brake light switch may be out of adjustment or broken and what you're seeing is the brake lights on.
If Car headlights get dim and horn goes mute after few kilometer and battery discharges but it works fine without head lights what is the problem?
It sounds like a direct short in the headlight circuit . Check for shorted wiring to the headlights and tail lights . Could also be headlight and or dimmer switch .
Some cars allow you to leave one or other headlight on when you are parked in the street at night (for safety) - have you checked if your car does this in the manual - if it does then you will be able to switch it off.
try pushing out on the light switch instead of pulling it in

Why is the drivers side headlight on your 1985 Corvette grinding in the up or down position This happened with the car sitting in the driveway untouched Is there a stop switch in the headlight motor?
hmm seems to me that the the light assembly mabye bent or that the sighn that the ,motor is on its way out Is there a stop switch?
Its nearly impossible. Well it is possible but you will scratch the bulb, or break it.
The light should stay on for quite a while. If they stay on without opening a door and they will not go out, then a door switched may be jammed or broke. The door switch is a little button that tells whether the door is open or not. The car may think that a door is still open. also you may have a problem in the headlight switch itself-make sure the dial for keeping the… Read More
If the switch is properly bypassed, then yes.
Its not hard but you need direction Get a manual on your car from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM for about $9 and it will have pictures and everything.
Your switch could be stuck, or you might have a short to ground in your headlight circuit.
headlight relays (nxt to battery) or the actual switch in the car ...check you have 12v at the red wire behind the switch...could even be the switchable relay the headlight wires run to with a purple an white wire
The module is located behind the headlight switch on the drivers side of the car, it is black in every model from 93-97 while the 98's have a white one with keyless entry capability, it is on a bracket against the cruise control module which is silver. so, drivers side, in the dash, behind the headlight switch, just pop out the headlight switch and you'll see it.
No, if it starts on its own without you turning the ignition switch then the ignition switch is defective.
try pushing the headlight switch in......works with 1999 Lincoln Towncar
If the parking lights stay on after the car is turned off which causes car battery to run down on a 1991 Toyota Camry how do you fix this?
Turn the stupid headlight switch off. DeeDeeDee I have the same problem with my 87 Camry. You need to change the stop light switch.
Where can you find a diagram of the inputs and outputs of the headlight switch of a 93 Cutlass Supreme?
You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
Make sure you have it out of AUTO LIGHTS ON. Do the lights automatically come on when the car is started? If so, the Auto Lamp switch may be on.
Probably the headlight switch is defective. When the car warms up, the metal contacts will expand, causing them to again make contact and turn lights on.
I have a problem starting a 1996 Honda Civic I heard it might be the clutch relay because it's like trying to start the car without having the clutch pushed in. Any ideas on what could cause this?
If the clutch switch failed then the car will not start unless the switch is bypassed. The purpose of a clutch safety switch is to prevent the car from dangerously starting, so when it malfunctions that car will not start without it switch off.
Cars don't turn off completely, they run on battery power. The headlight switch needs to be turned off.
You have a short (bare wire) and it is burning the insulation ( coating) on the wire. better fix before car go's up in smoke
The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
Some DRL's can be inactivated via a fuse, others are part of the headlight switch, still others are activated by releasing the parking break on a manual transmission car. I found a tab on the back of my headlamp switch module and bent it over then taped it with electrical tape to prevent shorting out. DRL's are not required by law, and it is completely legal to operate a car without them turned on. I… Read More
Open the back doors of the car, there should be a switch between the inside and outside of the door.
Check bulbs Check Fuses in Main junction box under hood
If I'm not mistaken, it should be under the hood. Facing the car it should be on the right in the black box just above the battery.
Why does the lights turn on and off and you hear a clicking sound under the dash on a 1992 Lincoln town car?
I had this same problem with my 1992 town car. On mine it was a headlight switch relay that was burnt out. It cost me about $300 at a ford dealer to get it fixed.
How the brake lights work on a 66 Mustang is very simple. Power goes from the headlight switch to the brake light switch, then through the turn signal switch and back to the brake lights. There is no fuse in that system. There is a self resetting circuit breaker in the headlight switch, but, if that was tripped, none of the lights on the car would work. The first thing to check is the brake… Read More
This happened on my car-it turned out to be a blown headlight fuse(15amp) and the hazzard switch on the left side instrument panel. Went to a junk yard and bought a new switch and replaced the blown fuse and ta-dah taillights I also replaced the dimmer switch also.
You recently got into a slight accident with a 99 vw jetta. the front drivers side headlight is somewhat hanging outside on one side. How do you put the headlight back in the car correctly?
More than likely you need to repair the headlight bucket section of the nosecone (either side of the grill) and /or replace the headlight assembly. It will take some fiberglass mesh and some resin and hardener .
In the front left bumper, forward of the wheel well. You will see a black box casing. You may hear it when the engine is not running.
To change a car headlight prop the hood open. Locate the headlight housings which will be towards the front of the vehicle. Find the bulbs and unscrew them. Insert the new bulbs.
It's the gearshift unlock switch, so you can't put the car in gear without putting the brakes on.
What would cause a 92 Buick Park Avenue to have the headlights turn on when needed but sometimes they won't turn off and how do you take out the head light switch in the door?
The car has automatic headlights....they go on and off when it gets light or dark out...they will also stay on for up to 3mins after you shut the car off depending on how the twilight sentenal switch is adjusted. And to take out the headlight switch in the door you have to take apart the door pannel
1999mustang v6 I turn on the car and the right signal light stays on and doesnt blink I switch the car off and the left signal light stays on without blinking I need help?
If you turn on your 1999 mustang v6 car and the right signal light stays on and doesn't blink and you switch the car off and then the left signal light stays on without blinking, then you need to see a mechanic.
Stuck ignition switch.
This is just a guess, but: probably because something is wrong with the wiring of your car. You should have a mechanic look at it.
Try replacing a bulb. There are instances where a short in the wiring will cause the bulbs to burn out. If that does not work the headlight switch is the next step.
