Question about 2002 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Healdights go on and off when driving on the road.

The headlights go off and then on again when I am driving on the road at night.
The setting is on manual and NOT on automatic "on and off".
The car is a 2002 S Type SE Jaguar.
They are only off for a couple of seconds and I have checked for loose wires etc, and cannot find any.
The side lights remain on.
Could this be a loose fuse causing the problem?

You may have a problem with the lights control switch, I had a similar problem with lack of control and the switch was replaced = all okay.
Does the light switch feel 'definite' when moved from one position to another?

hope this helps.

Headlights goes out while driving down the road at night.

Sounds like the lighting control module is bad. You can replace it for about 400 bucks. Or you can bypass the headlight circuit to it a wire the headlights to a relay.

Headlights turn on when car is parked

I know that Saturn is made by GM. I own an '02 Blazer, and I have to bypass the automatic headlights by either setting the e-brake, or by pushing my "Dome Override" button 4 times. Given the fact that your vehicle is a few years newer and a Saturn rather than a Chevrolet, chances are that the process to disable this feature (or annoyance is probably different. Try scrolling through your users manual and looking for a section labeled "Daytime Driving Lamps" or "Automatic Head Lamps". Some vehicles, such as Impala's and Malibu's as well as some of the Buick's will not allow you to disable this feature. However, if it CAN be disabled, it will be described somewhere in the manual.
Hope this solves you problem and keeps you from having to get any more jumpstarts. Have a great day!

Adjust headlights

There are adjusting screws on the top and side of each headlight. I like to get on a really dark road at night and set them to how I like them without blinding oncomming drivers. Good luck
