Low beams; If you're sure that the bulbs are both OK, you probably have to replace the turn signal/headlight/dimmer/cruise control switch. I had the same problem on my '96 and replacing the switch solved it. I can't quite remember how that plate light works, but I think it's above the plate in that area across the trunk lid that lights up "Pontiac" when the lights are on. I had to remove that piece on mine to get the bulbs out. There are about 4 nuts on the inside of the trunk lid that hold the whole thing in. Take it out, replace the bulbs, put it back in place.
change your wheel hub or control arm
You have to remove the tail light lens cover from inside the trunk- there are about 6 nuts holding it on --the whole cover comes off and bingo there are your lites for the Pontiac emblem that lights up!! There are no lights persay just for the Licence plates on my 96 Sunfire and I assume the same on a 98
is the trac align light mean
there is a light we dont know what it means
You must first remove the trunk door facia. (This is the part with the "Pontiac" lights in it.) Then you can get to the bulb to replace it.
Some have "fake theft" lights. If the light is blinking red near the radio then it is a fake.
I'm guessing that you want to be able to turn off the daytime running lights on your car. As far as I know, there is no such switch on the Sunfire. The daytime running lights are on whenever the car is running and is in gear.
IT probably means that ur day time running lights and head light system is bad somewhere...
You can access the backup light on your Pontiac from the trunk compartment. Remove the backup light cover. Take hold of the backup light connector, push in and turn at the same time. Do the same with the backup lightbulb. Reverse the process to install the new lightbulb.
On my 98 sunfire, the tail lights and marker lights only work if you turn on the headlights. If only the daytime lights are on, the Pontiac on the trunk is illuminated but no other lights at the rear until brakes or turn signals are activated. This is common with a lot of vehicles out there. Daytime running lights are not necessarily the same candle power as the headlights. I can tell a big difference in mine.
Does the car have fog lights? I have a 2003 Sunfire that the high beams would not work on. This was caused by a short in the fog light wiring. I had the fog lights rewired separate from the harness (about $100) and the problem was fixed.
Light conversion kits are packs which allow you to change your car lights from regular standard lights to say xenon lights. This will also apply for motorbikes if you want to convert your lights.
You have to take the whole light out and replace the bulb. Then make sure the lights are realigned.Its not that hard to do.
Answer location of check gauges lightthe check gauges light is on your instrument panel when it comes on it lights up saying check gauges
Hello, all you have to do is turn the back of the light post and pill the lights out for both the fog lamps and the break lights. For the break lights, its less work to change.
To change the license plate light on a Pontiac Sunfire, first remove the cover over the bulb with a small screwdriver. Gently push on the bulb and turn 1/4 turn to remove the old bulb. Insert the new bulb and snap in the cover.
In order to change the signal light, you need to look under the bumper. There are 5 to 6 bolts that need to be removed in order to remove the cover.Ê
light bulb out on map light how to change with out breaking plastic lens
I have a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire . The "check gages " light comes on when my gas tank is on empty. I dont know if this is a right answer but this is how I know I need to fill up at the gasbar .
That means you have a small kinda short in your lights. Mine did the same thing. Its the adapter that plugs into your lights. You can buy a new one for like 9 bucks at autozone.
When my Sunfire had this problem, the cause was a burned out high-beam section of the left headlight. It appears that in the daytime running light mode, the high-beam sections are connected in series and if one burns out, they both go out. (Just like XMAS lights) I found this by turning on the headlights and walking out to the front of the car and looking to see if both lamps were on during both low and high-beam operation. The bulb is easy to replace by removing a couple of screws and removing the entire assembly and from the rear of the lamp housing, simply twist the bulb counter clockwise and out it comes. I decided to replace both the left and right bulbs while I was at it and the package came with two bulbs anyway. Hope this solves your problem. i just bought a 1996 pontaic sunfire for my son the day light running lights wont come on and when i flip it from hi beam to low beam i have no lights can you help me and also how and the heck do you change the licene plate bulb thanks terry firstname.lastname@example.org
IF it is the all the dash board lights it is probably a fuse, else if it only one light the switch on the is probably gone that lights up that light. There are no dash bulbs a they are LEDS so the chances of them blowing is slim
Fold down the rear seat and it is right above the rear seat.
