There are several possibilities: It could mean a bad switch in the dashboard. It could mean a bad ground or bad connection in the wiring. There are other possibilities but that's where I'd start.

There are several possibilities; headlight switch, headlight breaker or fuse, connectors, dimmer switch.

I have an 2005 and the headlights on it will dim, and then brighten back to normal. I bought it brand new, and it has done it since I bought it. I actually took it back to the dealership, and asked them about it, and they said that Chevy knew that it would do that, but that the car would keep running, and that there was nothing that they could do about it. Hope this helps.

probably a short circuit in the steering column. that means a new wiring harness ($150-200 + ) must be done soon, or could cause battery drain, or even start a fire.

your headlights will burn out faster and could possibly blow a fuse, but you would go through headlights and a drastically increased rate if you use headlights when they are unneeded.

there are several possibilities, first: the fuse that provides power to the headlights could be blown out. second: the headlights could be burnt out. the other possibilities would require a professional diagnostics by a Subaru technician.

If the headlights are not coming on in a 1997 Lumina, it could be a problem with the headlight switch. It could also be a fuse or the headlight relay.

could be a couple things. the oil sender unit could be bad or you could just be a little low on oil.

sometimes the head lights and tail lights may be fused separately,check your fuses.you could have a bad ground.thats just two places to start.

there is no fuse for the headlights. Could be many reasons. Start with the fusible links down by the starter.

The tires vary, but for the most part they are Continentals. Headlights, could be Bosch or Valeo.

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 headlights could have bad bulbs or a bad fuse; the two sets of lights are on different circuits.

User Avatar

If both headlights went out at the same time it could be a blown fuse or a failed headlight relay.

Did you check the lights? They could be dead!

What kind of flicker do you mean? I own an '05 Aveo (my first car) and I find that my running lights get dim, go back to full brightness, and repeat. My interior clock goes in and out too. Why I mention the clock is that when I did a little research, I found that the circuit for the clock and the headlights are connected. After checking it out, I found that when the lights are bright, the clock is out, and when the lights were dim, the clock was on. I don't know if this is your issue, but it could help.

check fuses and connections at the headlights and the switch in the dash, make sure your headlights are good ;-) that's a start...

You could find information about hid headlights on Wikipedia, at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headlamp. Hid headlights are usually attached to the front of a vehicle like a car or motorcycle.

You can find these headlights online, but aftermarket headlights still will cost you a pretty penny, if your grand prix has plastic headlights and it is just a matter of discoloration this could easily be fixed. Just go to the The Headlight Solution, at headlightsolution.net they specialize in restoring / cleaning headlights to like new condition.

Could be bad headlights, foggy or dirty headlight casing, poor power output (bad battery or alternator).

Flicker is a criticism sometimes made of active 3D. Poorly calibrated or low quality glasses are often causes of the flicker. As a first step, check batteries in the glasses. Make sure, if there is a timing calibration or set up control for the glasses that you do the set up properly. Finally, make sure that the glasses are compatible with the television. Sometimes, using an alternative model of glasses with an active 3D television can make a difference.

Headlights won't turn offYou don't mention the make, model, and year of your vehicle so this answer will have to be generic in nature.Many of the later model vehicles are designed for the headlights to remain on for some time allowing a person to have light to navigate their driveway, sidewalk or garage to an entrance door to the house.This condition of headlights remaining on temporarily is accomplished using a "relay" which is a switch which is controlled by an electrical current.That relay control current is usually provided by an electronic timer device. Sometimes the timer is inside the relay, and sometimes it is a separate device, possibly located some distance from the relay.Therefore, IF the timer "sticks" in the on mode, or the contact points in the relay stick in the closed position, then the electrical current to the headlights never gets turned off and thus the headlights stay on.

A fuse could be bad underneath your dash
