Check for frayed or burnt wires ... that's what it sounds like. Follow the wires from your lights to the CPU or battery on the car and if there is no bad wires, it could be a fuse problem.

A good first place to start would be checking the plug, since plugs can be replaced the cheapest.

A common failure on Dodge Dakotas is the headlight switch - about $20 at a discount auto parts store and pretty easy to replace

Also be sure the bulbs are good.

Its sounds like you have an electrical problem. When you turn you headlights on, there is a programming in the cars computer which turns the radio ligts down so they dont dazzel you in the dark.

Where is the headlight circuit breaker located on a 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier?

Most headlight circuit breakers are located in the headlight switches. Headlights are on a circuit breaker automatic reset so headlights don't go out if there is a problem and will blink on and off to get you off the road safely until you can fix the problem. Look for a short in the wiring between the headlight switch and the headlights themselves.


When should the headlights be turned on?

Your headlights should be on whenever it will make a difference on the road. If you can look at the road and be able to tell that your headlights are on/off, then they should be on. Some states, such as New York, require headlights to be on when visibility is limited, such as in rain or fog, even in the day, regardless of whether or not you can see them on the road. In fact, one of the criteria for headlights is whether or not you are using your windshield wipers. At dusk or, in some states where mandated, when it is raining or foggy and you need to turn on your windshield wipers.

Look on the right side fender (under the hood) right behind the battery, there should be a black box there with relays inside (fuel pump is one of them) and in one of these spots should be 2 15 amp fuses for the headlights. another thing to check is the headlight switch itself, take it out and if it looks burnt or smells bad that could be your problem

Should the ETS System on a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire be on or off?

If your ETS light is on you may want to take a look a your brakes. If your brakes are making a noise, then the sensor has tripped your ETS sensor. Your ETS light is just like the ABS in most vehicles, it means there is a brake problem. Usually it means it is time to change them. The ETS should be off unless there is an electrical problem in the switch (located on the autmatic shifter on some models), or some other electrical problem somewhere else that is causing it to read as off by the computer.


Why are your dash lights are on in a 1992 Volvo 240 and get brighter when you rev the engine and dimmer when you brake?

You are experiencing a voltage regulation problem. If you look at your headlights during that rev period, they should appear brighter also. The taillights, during braking, load the electrical system and therefore, drop the voltage and cause the lights (all lights, they are most easily noticed) to dim. Go to an Advanced Autoparts store and have them test your charging system for free.
