I have a 98 Catera and if the brights are on the fog lights will not turn on. I currently have a problem with getting them to come on at all. There was a squealing sound coming from the relay switch under the dash when I turned them on. I replaced the relay and the squealing stopped but still no lights. I gave up. Now one of the brights is out and I'm afraid to fix it because I have the headlamp housing rigged with foam and tape to keep the lights alined since the ajusting has broke off. It's a real shame about these cars.
If only the interior lights won't work, check the fuses.
on ground or no power,check fuses.
fuse box under hood driver side take flip over check for corosion
That happened to my catera too and it was just two blown fuses so get a fuse tester and test the fuses or take it to a shop and have them fix it for about $80
did you change the flasher? it looks kinda like a film canister, under the dashboard by your feet
Have you checked the fuses?
Check your fuses
check the bulbs to see if there burnt and check your fuses
Probably the dash fuse is blown, or the dimmer switch for the dash lights is bad!
Check fuses (if stop lights are not working shift interlock will not release) Check fuse box for corrosion or loose fuses
Check fuses and high/low beam switch.
Switch most likely.
Hi First thing first check for burned fuses
Check fuses , or bulbs in radio burn out.
Either the switch is bad or the relay is.
In that case, you probably don't have tail lights or clearance lights either.Check the fuses. If that's not it, you may have a faulty light switch.
on the back of the car
Check all the related fuses both in cab and under hood.
you could have possibly bought the wrong bulbs and/or fuses. or when you were replacing them you may have damaged the wires. Also the reverse light switch may be defective.
Check the fuses- Shift interlock is the same circuit as brake lights. As a temporary measure - try to turn the key to 1st (unlock) position shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive.
check that you have double filament bulbs in tail lights
This can be due to a bad headlight switch. If it goes bad, most of the time you have no dash lights or headlights
if the plug is receiving power but the lights wonbt come on you may have to replace the entire lens piece since the brake lights are not a normal bulb they are built into the lens
my guess is that it is the brake relay
Believe it or not, I have had to disconnect the cig lighter in order for the tail lights to work. Sounds far fetched but it does work!
