Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre

92 LeSabre headlights just stay on

Dealer said "needs a light-control-module, they don't make them anymore". I can't find reference to such a part anywhere. Anyone have a part number or another idea?

I also need a light control module, & I have the electrical repair book for the 92 Lesabre. I will get the part number, & post it very soon. However, the number isn't a problem for me. My problen is finding the darn thing!! Thewiring manual shows it being under the dash, on the drivers side, above the fuse box, but there is nothing there! I thought I couls get the part number off of the old, but I have to find it first!!! All of my interior lights stay on also!
Good luck!

    I was just told that the light control module is on the steering colunm. Also, most salvage yards have them, for about 30 bucks.

    Good luck

    If this is done will it effect the parking, high beam (etc) lights?

Our brake lights tail lights and the turn signals on the mirrors and the gas guage work sometimes and sometimes they don't . Headlights and turn signals in front work all the time .

All of these devices run through a computer control module generally referred to as the GEM (Generic Electronic Module) module, you need the dealer to test this control module with a special scan tool.

If 10A fuse C24 in the passenger compartment fuse box checks OK power is getting to the extended x-feed relay which may be defective. The central electronic control module manages a number of inputs to derive output that is applied to the headlight control panel. The CECM could be defective.

2005 avalanche Fog lights are staying on with

The fog lamps are computer controlled .the body control module (BCM) will energize the fog lamp relay control circuit. The BCM receives the park lamp ON signal from the interior park lamps supply voltage signal circuit.
DTC B2527 Front Fog Lamps Circuit Low
The body control module (BCM) monitors the front fog lamp switch signal circuit in order to determine when the fog lamp relay is to be energized. When the BCM senses that the front fog lamp switch signal circuit is grounded momentarily by pressing the fog lamp switch, the BCM energizes the fog lamp relay by grounding the fog lamp relay control circuit.

Your best bet , take it to the dealer . Could need BCM replaced , would need to do testing using the Tech 2 scan tool . A new BCM has to be programmed .

Body Control Module (BCM) Replacement
If the body control module (BCM) is replaced, the following procedures must be performed in the following order:
BCM Reprogramming--Refer to Body Control Module (BCM) Programming/RPO Configuration in Computer/Integrating Systems.
Important: This procedure has to be performed only for vehicles equipped with the Passlockā„¢ System.
Theft Learn--Refer to Programming Theft Deterrent System Components in Theft Deterrent. A new BCM will learn the Passlockā„¢ information automatically, but the powertrain control module (PCM) must still learn the theft information from the BCM.

I have 1990 vette have rebuilt headlight motors and a new headlight module , but headlights still go up and stay up in sunlight

Not a Corvette expert, but I don't think sunlight would have any effect.
The motors should close the doors when you turn the lights off regardless if it is dark or not.
Are the headlights staying on, or just the doors staying up ? The up position is the default when something is wrong, so I think it takes voltage to close them.

The dash lights went out on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. It doesn't have the heads up display or remote locks, though they are power. All the other lights work fine, the computer displays work, and when...

Sounds like you have some confusion going on here.
The dash lights and tail lights have always been on different circuits and fuses. So if one set of lights fail, the other stays on unless the headlight switch blows up.
The fuse marked "instruments" is for the speedo and gas gauge, not the lights.
On your car there is an instrument panel module and a dash integraded module which both involve the dash lights.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures for this circuit.
Another thing - after 1998 most cars and trucks switched from having the headlight switch provide power to having them provide the ground connection.

The lights will not turn off on my 1992 buick lesabre. Where is the headlight switch relay located? We tried all of the locations under the hood. Is it in the door?

There is no relay.... there is a "Lighting Control Module". Its above the fuse box. Its hard to tell you what to check, without a wiring diagram, but if you disconnect the headlight switch and they go out, I would guess that the switch is bad, if you disconnect the switch and the lights stay on, then I would say the module is bad. But I would get a wiring diagram and check fully before spending any money on a module.

Headlights won't stay on!

This is not due to the multifunction switch (blinker switch) but a common problem with the light control module. This module is located under the driver side dash next to the OBD Reader plug. The problem inside the light control module is a $4 resistor that overheats and sometimes causes the headlights to fail after only a short period of running time. This can be replaced if you're good at soldering, or you can replace the whole module anywhere from $75-200 (junkyard to dealer)
