2005 Astro van Head lights - How can I modify factory setting to turn off headlights when car is running?

Try pulling the fuse or the relay marked DRL (Daytime Running Lamps). More than likely each headlamp has its own fuse and relay.

Also, ensure that your headlamps work when you turn on the switch!

I can't find which fuse runs the cruise control. My cruise just stopped working, light does not come on in dash when CC is engaged which led me to believe I've lost power to the unit ??????????? 2006...

There is not a fuse for the CC itself, only the brake light fuse and the speed control deactivation switch ( on the top of the brake pedal lever ).

The deactivation switch is from fuse # 14, 10A.

Did you change the Stop / Turn bulbs to LEDs without the load resistors ? Usually the CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) as a standard bulb is enough to keep the CC working, when doing LED Stop / turn bulbs.

The deactivation switch has the switch in the closed position to the PCM, when the brake is off.
Could also be this switch if the fuse tests good with a meter.

Check for power on both sides of the deactivation switch

Fuse #14 - Light Blue w/ Pinks stripe wire - deactivation switch - black w/ yellow stripe wire - PCM.

I have a 1987 jetta and i want to get my up shift light working again i hoping it is just a blown fuse?

It could be the upshift indicator control unit relay (relay #4, second row of relays, 4th from the right). There is also vacuum switch upshift indicator, (usually connected inline of the vacuum line going to the distributor advance, with an electrical plug connected to it). Or it could be transmission switch/upshift indicator, (located on top of the transmission, towards the back of the transmission). I don't think it would be a fuse, because the upshift control unit relay is powered by ignition battery.

I ahve an 88 c4 with a 700r and the upshift indicator quit working. what tells the upshift indicator to come on is my question. thanks in advance Troy

Probably parameteres are :

1 ) Engine speed ( more then pre determined value )

2 ) Time on that engine speed

3 ) Another ratio to upshift

if all 3 conditions are OK , ECM will light it :)))) ( I think )

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.

this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
