They as designed to "dim" when headlights are on to reduce "glare" try adjusting dash dimmer switch
replace the head light switch you may have a bad wire or a faulty dimmer switch.
On the turn signal indicator arm. Switch on the headlights, make sure the high beam is off, then pull out the rotating light switch.
Well, the daytime running lights are on whenever the car is running and in gear. They're off when you have the headlights on. So, your service light Doesn't come on when the headlights are on?? If you switch the headlights between on and off (with the car running and in gear) does the service light follow?
replace the head light switch
I've heard that if you have an automatic light switch sut-off switch and are having problem with your headlights flashing like a police car, it was caused by the cars computer.
Check the headlights relay. Turn the switch on and off. Listen for activation. If not it will be hard testing because they are in the steering column.
The car has automatic headlights....they go on and off when it gets light or dark out...they will also stay on for up to 3mins after you shut the car off depending on how the twilight sentenal switch is adjusted. And to take out the headlight switch in the door you have to take apart the door pannel
AnswerI assume that you mean why won't the headlights turn off when I turn them off at night. The 98 Malibu has a light sensor that automatically turns on the head lights when it senses a low light condition. Unless there is sufficient light from some other source directed at this sensor, the head lights will not turn off when you turn them off using the switch on the dash panel. They will only go off when the head light switch is in the lights off position and the car is shut off.The only other way to turn the headlights off while the vehicle is running in low-light conditions, is to set the parking brake prior to starting the vehicle. This will prevent both Headlights and Day-Time Running lights from turning on when the vehicle is running.
Check your relay. Take a test light to see if you have power going to the 86 pole when the headlight switch is turned off. If you do, your switch is stuck in the on position. If you don't, your relay is stuck closed.
Set your light switch to "auto" on the dash and your lights will come on automatically with the ignition. Turn your light switch on your dashboard to "auto" or "automatic" and the lights will come on and off with your ignition switch.
On 2000 model there is a tiny screw bottom r/h corner of light switch that does it.
sounds like a bad light switch.
check the headlight/multifunction switch
There is a switch on the end cap of the light switch stalk. Pull this cap straigt out after the lights are turned on only. There should be a small light that comes on in the upper right corner of the instrument panel. Turn the driving lights off by pushing in on the end cap that you pulled out. Also, if you turn the ignition off before turning off your lights, the headlights will remain on for about 30 seconds or so after the light switch is turned to the off position.
Your headlights turn off when you turn the high beams on because you have a defective switch. You need to have a mechanic replace the high beams switch. It is a simple replacement.
Well if you mean the interior lights they automatically switch off when you lock the car doors, if you mean your headlights the dial which turns the headlights on and to park also pulls out and pushes in so you may have it out??
Flip the light switch into the down or off position.
I would start with replacing the head light switch
Probably because the dimmer switch is turned off. Turn the dimmer switch up and see if the dashlights and radio illumination lamps come on.
Some time's my headlight's come on like they should and some time's they don't.is this because of the head light switch is going bad? If this problem is occurring while the headlights are in automatic on/off mode, the light sensor on top of the dash is probably at fault. If this problem is occurring while operating the light switch manually, the headlight switch is probably at fault.
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.
Ever watched a movie called christine? Nah, check your wiring harness for the headlights and look for a bare spot(s) with wire showing...could be grounding
They stay on cause they runnin off the battery. there should be a car headlights switch somewhere by your spedometer stuff...
Headlights are on a relay. It may have fused shut. The relay maybe in with the fuses. Some have a delay going off which may have failed.
