the light switch controls all lights normally, it takes power from the battery and distributes it to the lights by several different wires, hi beam , lo beam, tail , dash, etc. Of course check all the fuses first , and the fuseable linkwires if equipped.

All the lights would go out. Also the radio would turn off. Also you wouldn't get the car started.

You can rent a car at Car Hire. Their cars are all new models and would not fail you. They would also provide you with a complimentary GPS free of charge.

Tail lights and break lights are different things pretty much all the time. You see, tail lights run all the time the car is on and break lights only turn on when the break is pressed. If you would like to find out which lights are the breaklights, have a friend watch the back of the car, turn it on, push the breaks a few times and see which lights flash. The lights that flash are your break lights!

Because you put them on? Because the door is open? Gremlins? Muppits? Who knows!

Because if all the circuits were in series they would all fail when one went. Besides it would be a hard feat to figure out what voltage they would run on.

the headlights- for the driver to see in fount of the car. indicators- so other cars can see where the car is going brake lights- so the other cars can see when a car ahead of them is slowing down interior lights- for passengers in the car to see what is inside the car and when u press that button with all the triangles on they all flash (except the interior lights) to signal the car is broken or somthing. :D

First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.

lights being on all matters such as so...

rear car lights come on as an indication to the drivers in the back that you are about to stop.

Why would lights clicker and go deem when car wants to cut off the car is an 1985 Chevy cavalier?

If you are wondering why this happens, it is completely normal. When you turn your key all the way to start the car, all the warning lights will come on do perform a lamp test. Also, the computer runs a quick test on all the sensors in the car and on all the lights on the dash to make sure everything is operating properly, once you start the car, these lights should all go out. If there are lights remaining lit on your dash, it may mean that your car needs to be serviced, always get warning lights checked if they come on while the car is running. Hope this helps!

There are many reasons why a head light would stay on when car is off. These lights could be automatic.

if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.

Headlights,interior lights stop working.checked all fuses. I would suspect the headlight switch and/or the electrical connection at the headlight switch is faulty.

Car lights get power from the batterie in the car, or in some cars oil gives car lights power.

all other lights on car work ,just no dash lights,could it be a fuse?

Um... Aren't all brake lights in the back of a car?

It depends, if is a bike, probably want to get it fixed, but on a car, i dont know. On a bike it probably would not fail

Street lights are so important because, if we did not have them we would always have bad car accidents.
