My head lights will not flip up, the left one comes up but the drivers light stays down?

Most likely a bad headlight retractor motor assembly, Open hood and check at connector under hinge assembly.

91 firebird (headlights wont go up or down).

Click on the link, hope you can read it? The top four wires are voltage. The two on the right come from head lamp switch. The two on the left are fuse protected, hot all the time. Use a test light and check for voltage. Hopefully the text will tell you how the module works. I don't know if replacing module will fix it, but, if voltage and grounds for the module are all ok, what else could it be?

When I click it to come it wont.. then the light for it comes on and is the cruise control still wont work. Is it a fuse maybe? 1997 Nissan Altima

Hello there.

I would deffinetly check all of your fuses first, as cruise controll will work with a different part of the car.

i know that abs ( anti lock brake system) works with traction controll.

so i would deffinetly go for fuses buddy, there located under the steering wheel on the right if a right hand drive car.

if left hand drive, then left hand side on a pull down flap, you will see with have a little clip on it.

Thanks alot.

Ps. there are also fuses in the engine bay located in a little black box, with normally white numbers and lines on :) the in car fuse layout is found on the reverse of the plastic, cover that will either come off or flip down.

Frog Lamps wont go down when lights are switched off

Do you mean the headlights- I don't have fog lights on mine. I found out the hardway that the headlights use a relay within that little headlight up/down button on your dash where the hazard button is. I had removed the trim around the radio and vents putting in a stereo and drove to work in the daytime without it. When I left at night, my lights came on but did not come up. I knew what I had done then. I took a paperclip and bent it to go into both slots of the plug that was left- the one that plugs into that button. The headlights came up and I drove home. The clip does not need to stay in it- in fact if your headlights go down then u will have to do it again to get them back up. You would need to replace that button. Mine was ok so I can't tell you about the design of the button. Maybe this will help. PS- you have to pry the air vents out to get this trim peice off- they should pop right out and pop right back in. You have screws in the top of the round vent shafts to take out. I believe the screws on the center console have to come out to so you can lift it up to access the other trim bolts. Mine is a boring automatic though.

How to replace headlights on 2003 hyundaui tiburon

First you'll want to pop the hood open to access the headlights. There will be two bolts on the top which go straight down above the headlight and another on the side closest to the middle of the car that is kind of hidden so you may have to kneel down to see it (So, if you are working on the right headlight the 3rd bolt is on the left and if you are working on the left headlight the 3rd bolt is on the right). As long as you only remove the three bolts that are in the mounts that are connected to the headlight you'll be fine. After you get them out, you have to play a little bit of a wiggle game with the headlight to actually get it out. I found it's best to try to get the left bolt mount out past the little black hard plastic flap in front of it. Don't worry, I always bend it at a 90 degree angle and it hasn't broke yet so don't be too worried to be rough with it. After that, you should be able to pull the opposite side out just enough to get your hand behind and unplug the two connections. Now that the headlight assembly is out just unscrew the caps to access the bulb. There is a metal prong you push down like a safety pin to unlock the bulbs. Then just move that out of the way and the bulbs pull right out with no effort. Just gently place the new bulbs in, flip over the metal clip and push it down to lock the bulb in place and screw the cap back on. To get the headlight back in just reverse the process. Get the outer side of the headlight back in (side farthest from center of vehicle), stick your hand behind it and plug the connections back in, then pull the hard plastic flap out to get the assembly all the way back into place and put the three bolts back in.Sorry this is so long but I figure as much detail as possible will ensure things get done without uncertainty.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites

Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.

Wont start

The problem is likely in the injection module which is located in the dash right behind the flip down tray to the right of the flip down fuse door the the left of the steering wheal.To test simply rapidly slap the fuse/vanity flip down door area while starting the car and it will start.I have had 5 preludes and all have the same problem a replacement is 150 or you can sotter all the connections on the board inside the fuel injection module.This will fix the problem as the original connections develop miniscule cracksAll preludes have this problem in really hot or cold weather
