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.

How do you detect eletrical problems of radiobrake lighthead lamp on a 1992 Mazda mx3 you recentely installed a CD-radio Now when you push on the brake or turn on the head lights the radio dims?

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. As for this happening when you break, this sounds like the electrical fault. Get a mechanic to have a look and advise but only ask him for a quote, then he should not charge you for this. It may turn out to a simple job and you can do it yourself for free. Yours Mike Its sounds like you have an electrical problem.

What is the problem in a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo if the taillight fuse blows immediately upon turning on the headlights?

You have an electrical short somewhere. I would first look at each park light bulb, front and back. If all are good and not installed backward then look for a wire that has a frayed spot where it has rubbed against something.

What can you do if your gas dryer is not drying?

If it is not drying because there is no heat, the best suggestion is to call an appliance tradesman and get them to look at the problem. They will be able to check for leaks, check burner etc.. If it is an electrical problem, the same appliance tradesman should be able to find out what is wrong and they are allowed to repair the electrical fault.


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.

It is possible that the electrical wirings are grounded. You'll probably need to get an auto-electrician to take a look at it.
