If you have not yet checked your alternator do that. Then if you did that your self double check it by seeing if there is any slack in the belt, if so then tighten the belt, then check the alternator again. I think this is what could be the problem Sounds like the alternator. You should test it to see how many AMPS it's putting out. If you can't, take it to your local auto parts store, they should be able to do it for you. It should be putting out about 65 AMPS, if it's not, it needs to be replaced. If you can start your car, start it and turn your headlights on high beam and turn your air conditioner on full blast and your radio on. If your car shuts off, your alternator is more than likely bad. Check the battery too. If things were working when your engine speed are higher, but not at idle, and now the car won't start, it could be a weak battery that is now dead.

You had installed a brand new CD in dash stereo in your 1977 corvette and now when you turn on the headlights it will knock off the stereo until you turn the headlights off again Anyone have an idea a?

The headlights turn off because you have accidently hooked the stereo's power wire onto the headlight relay wire. When you turn on the stereo, there's not enough power left to run the headlight relay. Thus, no headlights. Re-wire the stereo.

How do you adjust Kia headlights?

Quote: I have a 2003 Kia Sorento and when my husband changed my headlights I asked him to "adjust" them. He tried to put he said that they can't be adjusted to point higher, lower or whichever way because they are screwed into place. Unquote. Just in case anyone comes across this reply when looking for how to adjust Sorento headlights: the answer above is wrong. Sorento headlights are adjustable up & down, and side to side with a Phillips screwdriver. In addition, some Sorentos have and in-vehicle headlight adjustment switch so you can adjust for extra weight in the rear while you are driving.
