Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Headlights won't turn off.

After the headlights have been on for awhile, they will not turn off with the switch. All other lights turn off: dash, tail, parking. I just bought this car from my cousin and was told that the headlight switch had been replaced. If you keep playing with the switch for about five minutes, they will finally turn off. Is there a headlight relay that may be sticking? Please help, thanks.

    Could be, check the owners manual for the relay location and pull it out, do you have a factory anti-theft? that will keep the headlights on if it malfunctions.

I had the same problem and changed light control module and now it works. It is above the swing down fuse panel under the dash on the driver side. Swing the panel down and you can slide it back a little and it will release. You can get these from a junk year for around $10 or less.

I cant turn off the headlights off while my 03 GMC Sierra Z71 is running, the manual switch does nothing unless the truck is turned off.


I have a 2003 GMC Sierra Z71 Extended Cab and the headlight switch won't turn off the headlights while the truck is running. When I got the truck the Photocell Sensor which is the black bubble that sits on the dash that tells the daytime running lights to turn off and on was down in the dash so I fished it out with my fingers and clipped it back in and it made the daytime running lights work. I still can't turn my headlights off while my truck is running though. The owner's manual says that I am able to do so. There's 2 light's on the switch by AUTO and the O for off that should light up? Is it my whole switch?

My headlights won't work when I turn on the switch. But when i connect a straight wire from the body of the car into the relay area that controls the headlights, it will work fine


You have a bad ground by the lamp fixture. You grounded the circuit and completed it with the wire to car body.

Check all over the lamps for corrosion

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Dash lights turn off when headlights are turned on


Check the dimmer switch. First make sure it is turned up so the lights will be at their brightest. Turn the headlights on, if the lights on the dash are actually off, you probably have a faulty dimmer switch.
