    My headlights will come up, but not come down.

  • marls01 Oct 31, 2008

    Whilst driving last night the headlight were on high beam. I dimmed the lights and the headlights would not come back on nor would the lights open. The high beam would still work and of course the light holders would open if I held the high beam switch in the flash position.

    The light holders would open if the centre control was opereated and only the parking lights remained on.

    I checked both fuses and they are OK.



    Any ideas where to go next???

    Thanks

There are two fuses for the lights one is under the hood and one is under the dash try both of those. THERE IS ALSO A MANUAL WAY OF RAISING THEM TURN THE LITTLE KNOBS BEHIND THE LIGHT WHEN YOU OPEN THE HOOD. There is a large plug in under the lights the passange side is easy to see the other side is a little hardier. Make sure they are plugged in an no corroision on the terminals . I have a 91' conv also had the same problem. I have a problem with mine i keep throwing the altenator belt off can't figure it out is there a spacier between the bracket and altenator?

How to fix non working headlights


First check your fuses. If ok. Turn your headlight switch and see if rear parking lights turn on. If they do more than likely your headlight switch is not your problem. If running lights dont come on, check your headlight switch operation..

My headlights stopped working on a 1991 oldsmobile ninety-eight. What should I do?


Unplug headlight connectors. With switch on, test for voltage going to connectors. If there's voltage then headlights are burned out. If no voltage to connectors, check headlight fuse. If fuse is good than its likely the headlight switch on the dash/steering column that's causing the issue.

High beams not working on 1991 buick park avenue only have dim lights that are working


I couldn't find any information on a headlight relay for your car, so it must be a fuse. I would also check the headlight bulbs, although it would be unusual that both of them burned out at the same time.

If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

How to replace headlight in 1991 dodge dakota?


The grille work on these trucks is divided up to three pieces. Right, left, and center.

1. Open hood
2. Remove the two top screws in the corner grille work.
3. Remove the two lower screws in the corner grille work. (these are located right between the bumper and the grille work). Let's just say they are not easy to remove. You would be surprise how many never reinstall these screws.
4. Lift corner grille work away and you will be able to see the screws for the metal frame that surrounds the headlight remove them and replace headlight.
5. Reverse order to install.
