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.

My tail lights don't work but head lights a turn signals work and dash lights don't work


The dash lights are on the same circuit as the tail lights/park lights. If the front park lights are not on as well, look for a blown fuse . If fuse is ok. possible headlight switch/relay/wiring problem

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1995 huyndai excel, lost power to left side park light, tail light and dash light any reason why?


Recheck your work. Pull the connector off at the flasher and inspect it before plugging it back in. Not much room to work under there in an Excel? Maybe you pulled a wire loose somewhere? Kinda weird, cause the park, tail, and dash lights are all operated by the headlight switch, no relation to the turn signals and flasher relay. Or do you mean the left indicator light on the dash? That would make me think the flasher connection again, or the left side wires up under there. H H, josh...happy ha ha, merry christmas.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

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
