Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1999 Jetta Headlights not working at all

The headlights on my Jetta do not always work. The tail lights and break lights are fine, but sometimes the headlights will not turn on at all and the light that appears when the highbeams are on is lit on the dash. The lights will suddenly turn on after about 15 minutes of driving or so.

    2002 Jetta. Taillights, blinkers, and reverse all work fine. Brand new bulbs, but headlights don't come on. Blue highbeam indicator is on though.
    Have not checked fuse, yet.

    Head lights and wipers do not work all the time. Parking brake light is dimly lit when the lights do not work. Sometimes i can get the lights and wipers to work by playing with the ignition and the key. Does not always work though.

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.

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited i have brake lights that work when i apply brakes, but as as soon as i turn my headlights on the fuse blows and i have no working tailights with the headlights on. ...


There is definitely a short in the park lights system. Did you just have a radio installed....since the illumination wire sometimes gets grounded and will cause that fuse to blow until you fix that wire.

Tail light doesnt turn on with headlights but works fine as a break light and turn signal, why?


in the rear lights you may have two bulbs one is the turn signal the other one is stop light / tail light the stop light / tail light has two filaments, one for the stop light (21 watt) & one for the tail light (5 watt) it is possible that the tail light filament is blown, try replacing the bulb to see if that fixes the problem,also check all the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.

I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

Headlights stopped working


it is your DRL module they malfunction and therefore your headlights stop working. i disconnected my relay located in the dash where your radio is and i can then manually turn them on the only problem with that is that i cannot locate the module itself
