Check the ground wire to the tail lights.
on my 1996 Saturn it was a blown fuse under my hood my headlights worked, but the lcd light or my back lights on my car didnt work.
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.
I do not have an answer, but I do have the same problem as you do. I have a 2001 L200, and from the moment you start the engine, every few seconds, the security light will flash and the temperature and gas gauge needles will act as if you turned off the car, and then pop back up where they should be. When the headlights are on, the dash lights will flash along with the security light and the gauges. The headlights and radio are not affected, though. In addition to that, the odometer has also stopped working. It has read the same milage since I noticed some time ago. I will let you know if I find out anything.
Examples are lightbulbs,neon lights, traffic lights,headlights, concert lights.
To bypass the security pull the fuse. For the other issues there may be a problem with the computer in the car.
You must have two headlights, all other lights are in fact not headlights and just additional light aids.
There are 3 different things that can cause the security lights to flash constantly on a 2002 Saturn Vue. These things are a bad passlock sensor in the ignition housing, a bad BCM, or a bad PCM.
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??
Those aren't headlights, they're considered running lights or parking lights. I believe that mercury calls this a Light Bar.
my headlights work but my taillights and dash light dont work whats wrong
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?
The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.
Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights. Assuming you are not refering to the tail lights, or marker lights, which are supposed to come when the head lights are turned on. Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.
pull the light switch outward with clearance light or headlights on!
The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.
Turn your headlights on. Walk to the back of the vehicle and look for any lights that are out. If the lights are all on. Have someone press the break pedal and look at the light again. If any lights are out replace them.
On VWs trunk light may need to have headlights on to operate.
It means that your fog lights are on - which should only happen when your headlights or at least parking lights are on.
security lights use resistors as the light out side falls the security light turns on and as it gets lighterbout side the light dimms and turns off, in bmw's the resistors are used to detect when the lights should come on as light gets brighter the car lights turn off.
Turn the light nob to the left and a orange light should come on under the lights nob.
change the head light swicth
replace the head light switch you may have a bad wire or a faulty dimmer switch.
Yes. When you turn on the lights there is a circuit for the headlights, one for the dashboard lights and a third for the clearance and taillights. Any one of those circuits can fail independantly of the others.
If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.
