Should be coming out of the wiring harness on each side of the car, where the harness is fastened to the radiator support. The ground is bolted to the radiator support on both right and left sides near the headlights- on the back of the radiator support

It is possible that both of the fuses are bad for the low beam headlights and the cruise control. A loose ground wire could cause the fuses to blow.

Had the same problem. Found it to be a bad ground wire for the headlights. There are two ground wires for the headlights, both are directly below the battery. You can see one of them if you remove the drivers side headlight. It is right behind the radiator hose. The other is a few inches from that one.

How do you adjust the headlights on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

i had a problem with my 99 grand am...the lights were pointing at each other towards the ground about 10 feet in front of the car...there should be several screws above or behind the headlights on either side...take it out on a road at night and have someone sit in the car while u adjust the lights with a screwdriver but be easy because the plastic piece that surrounds the headlights break easily.

Please 1999 jeep grand Cherokee why does your right brake light turn off when headlights are on?

This will happen if the ground terminal for the brakelight bulb is connected to the power side by accident. If you have a 3 wire socket or light assembly with GROUND, TAIL, and BRAKE wires two of them are wired incorrectly. When the headlights are off the brake light is finding ground thru the filaments of the headlights. Since the headlights have much heavier filaments, they provide a good ground for weaker brake light. When power is on the headlights the brake light will have power on both sides, so no current flows and it goes out.
