I had the same problem on my 87 f-150. You will have to take the dash apart and remove the whole switch assembly. The problem is the retainer on the switch is melted from the heat generated and the wires aren't making contact in the module. I was unable to find an aftermarket replacement but you may find one at a salvage yard. Good luck.
The switch that turns the headlights on. PULL it back once for front fogs(if fitted) and twice for rear fogs. This will only work with the headlights on though(sidelights or dipped) OK
Not very specific on the question. I can go with my experience, though.My 2000 T&C would turn off my headlights as I was driving. No special warning, and it did it randomly. Even when I had the fog lights on, it turned off my headlights. A new headlight switch fixed it right up! Make sure you get the right switch! The non-fog light switch and the switch with fog lights have very different electrical connectors!
Yes, inasmuch as they turn off when you shut off the engine and remove the ignition key; and the standard daytime running lights come on when you're driving. You have to switch from DRL to headlights with a switch, though - but in my soob I just leave my headlight switch on all the time anyway.
HeyKris==It is probably the switch located on the brake pedal. GoodluckJoe I am having the same problem but shouldn't both the top light and the break lights be activated from the same switch? Is there anything else it could be?
make sure your dimmer switch isn't turned all the way down. Then check the fuses next.
I had a 97 F150 with the same problem. Per internet advice I removed master light switch from steering column and cleaned the green corrosion. This gave me my highbeams back. Later when I had $100 for a new switch, I replaced it and the headlights have been working fine ever since.
Hi, check out http://forum.peugeot206club.com for all your answers to questions regarding the 206! :)
Yes! Pilots are very careful about their night vision, and you -will- upset them if you put your headlights in their eyes. This is not to say that you should turn all your lights off though. You should have your parking lights on, as well as turning on your four-way blinkers (hazard lights) whenever driving on the airport ramp.
make sure all othe lights are working correclty. if they are, then its very possible, the daytime driving lights are on, the only way to turn them off, is to hook up the dealer scan tool computer to turn them off.
The dashlights are connected to the taillight circuit with the same fuse so that when your tail lights go out, the dash lights will too and you will know so you won't ride around with no tail lights. Replace the fuse. I did not find this to be a solution for my problem - fuses were not the issue. Following is my solution: I had the lights on my dash and tail lights go out on my 1995 Grand Am 3.1 V6. After much investigation, it ended up being that the turn signal switch had gone bad. I got mine at Autozone - $79.99 for one with cruise, $69.99 for one without. SW860 for the non-cruise, SW859 for the cruise version. It is sometimes referred to as a multifunction switch - however, when I called and asked about that, it seemed as though the parts are NOT the same (MFS was much more expensive). Make sure you specify turn signal switch (that also controls the tail lights, headlights, etc). In order to replace it, you need to remove the cover around the steering column - we couldn't get the lower part of the cover off and subsequently also had to pull the steering wheel (which also meant disabling the air bag), then remove the bad turn signal switch (which also controls the headlights, parking lights, tail lights, etc), pop in a new one, put everything back together (re-enabling the airbag) and then you can enjoy a life of dash lights and tail lights once again.
the lights have a programmer they automatically stay on when u turn your car off, should only be on for a couple of minutes though, that's how the lights on my Bonneville work
Usually it is a warning that either you have left your keys in the ignition, or you have left your headlights, interior, or parking lights on. Sometimes, though, the little switch in the ignition that senses the presence of the key, will stick. Reinserting the key and jiggling it around a bit while removing it will often fix it.
Sure! You've got your taxi lights to use as headlights, so you can see the edges of the runway and not run off the sides or end of it. I wouldn't recommend landing on an unlit runway, though.
The headlight switch may be bad. Try replacing. Its the Headlight switch. The switch has a built in Circuit Breaker that self resets. It has become bad and will eventually give it up.
the problem is in your high beam switch. there is a short in it and it needs to be replaced
One question I'd have is whether or not your tail lights are working. I had the lights on my dash go out (the shifter lights still worked though) and my tail lights and parking lights were also out. After much investigation, it ended up being that the turn signal switch had gone bad. In order to replace it, you need to remove the cover around the steering column - we couldn't get the lower part of the cover off and subsequently also had to pull the steering wheel, then remove the turn signal switch (which also controls the headlights, parking lights, tail lights, etc), pop in a new one, and enjoy a life of dash lights and tail lights once again.
There might be a short somewhere, and it is drawing alot of power. It is like an electric chair...When extra voltage is used, the lights flicker, and when the switch is off,it goes back to normal. trying to find the short could be hard though.
You probably hit the parking light switch inadvertantly! The switch is on top of the steering wheel column and is a rocker switch. I think that pushing the switch away from you will turn the parking lights on and pushing it towards you will turn them off - it may be vice versa though! Parking lights are for use in some countries when you are parked on an unlit street so that other drivers can see your car.
They could be burned out.
The headlight switch that has the dash light dimmer knob. The dimmer switch went bad and you can only fix it by getting another headlight switch on most cars. Some though have a separate dimmer switch.
The brake lights are usually operated from an operating switch off the brake mechanism. It is most often a switch on or near the pedal, though a number of variations are also found. The switch has some kind of adjustment so that it will be activated and deactivated at the "right" time when the pedal is depressed and released. When the pedal is pushed down, the brake light circuit is powered up (through the turn signals, of course). When the brake pedal is released, the switch is opened and the brake lights should go off.If the brake lights do not go off, it has nothing to do with the wheels or any alignment issues. This is an electrical problem, and it centers on the operating switch and associated circuits. Remember that the brake lights are not an "isolated circuit" but work through the turn signals and flashers. Look at the brake light switch and how it is set up and adjusted. If this is all good, then look through the rest of the electrical system for the cause of the problem.
You probably have a faulty headlight switch. Replace it and that should fix it. Been there, done that.
possibly a bad headlight switch, or dimmer switch. Some later model buicks have a lighting module under the dash about in the middle. I think yours is too old to have that though.
All those circuts are seperate. They each have there own fuse. If all the tail lights and brake lights are out check the main wire harness that feeds them. Check to see if it's been damaged or unplugged. Check the fuses of course. Check the bulbs also.
one click of the parking brake should turn off the lights, don't recomend driving though
