SOURCE: Need location/description of brake light switch for 99 dodge van

This is not vehicle specific, but normally the switch is near the top of the brake pedal arm, on the side closest to the front of the dash (opposite side from the firewall) - it should be pretty obvious. it has a 'pin' that is pushed in when the brake pedal is at rest, and as the brake pedal is depressed, it pops out, closing the switch.

Dash lights come on with the headlights then shut off


Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?

did you scan the PCm first to see if there are DTC error with said components.?
the shift box has a computer inside
and must get commands telling it what to do (light up)
scan it , yet, get P0706 errors?
when any transmission acts funny or its lamps
we scan it first. (or look like dog chasing his tail)


if compelled to dig in here) (scans show NOTHING)
remove bezel using plastic pry rods

2000 GRAND CARAVAN: Extremely dim headlights, because headlights are so narrow. Installed 9007SU Silverstar Ultra bulbs 3 years ago. Age 77 so poor night vision + still DIM headlights is BAD at night! ...


The silverstar bulbs while brighter, have a considerably shorter life span than conventional bulbs. If the headlights are dim, it would mean a bad electrical connection most commonly a bad ground. If they are just too dim for your liking and burn at the normal brightness, you might want to consider having auxilliary headlamps installed.

How to adjust headlights, 05 ford 500


Headlamp Adjustment
Headlamp Aiming
  1. The headlamp aiming procedure depends on what type of beam pattern the headlamp is equipped with. Vehicles may come equipped with visual optical left (VOL), visual optical right (VOR) or SAE only (includes sealed beam type) headlamps. To identify the headlamp beam pattern, look on the headlamp lens. Molded in small letters on the headlamp lens is 1 of the following:
    • SAE
    • VOL and SAE
    • VOR and SAE
  1. Once the headlamp beam pattern is identified, aim the headlamps using 1 of the following methods as applicable.
    • Photometric aimers can aim VOL-, VOR- and SAE-type headlamps only. This is the preferred method of headlamp aiming.
    • Visual or screen method aiming can be used to aim VOL-, VOR- and SAE-type headlamps only.
    • Mechanical aimers cannot be used with VOR- or VOL-type headlamps. Aerodynamic lamps that can be aimed mechanically have 3 nibs molded into the lens of the lamp.
    • Photometric Aiming
      1. For the photometric aiming procedure, refer to the appropriate photometric headlamp aimer instruction manual.

      Screen Method Aiming
      All headlamp types NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for VOL or VOR headlamps.
      NOTE: Consult your state vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
      NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters.
      1. Before starting headlamp adjustment:
        • check the tire inflation.
        • check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of fuel.
        • check that the headlamps are clean.
        • check for correct headlamp operation.
        • check that the vehicle is on level ground.
        • if the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure that the switch is on.
      1. NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4-m (8-ft) wide.
        Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6-m (25-ft) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
      1. NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked either on the lens (circle, crosshair or other mark) or on the bulb shield internal to the lamp (crosshair or other mark).
        Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
        1. Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record the measurement.
        1. Make a 2.4-meter (8-ft) horizontal mark (using masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.
      1. NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern.
        Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
      1. NOTE: For SAE-type headlamps, the appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
        On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern. Place the top edge of the high intensity zone even with the horizontal reference line.
      2. SAE-type headlamps
        1. In addition to the horizontal line marked in Step 3, a pair of vertical lines must be marked at the center line of the headlamps on the wall or screen.
          1. Mark the center line of the vehicle on the wall or screen.
          1. Measure from the center of the headlamp to the center line of the vehicle.
          1. Make two 1.5-meter (5-ft) vertical marks (using masking tape) on the wall or screen at the same distance from the vehicle center line as previously recorded.
        1. On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern. Place the left edge of the high intensity zone even with the vertical line corresponding to the headlamp being adjusted.

99 silhouette.all bulbs are in working order.right (not left) signal flashes fast when headlights are on and even worse when brakes depressed(lights on or off).also lights on both rears are real strange on...


I had similar symptoms - rapid flashing of directional when headlights on and brake depressed when making a left turn, both directional indicators in dash light dimly when brake depressed, "Check Traction Control System" indicator On even with ATC turned Off and "strange" indications in tail lights.

Check the pins in the connector at the Lamp Holder Assembly for your Rt. Tail Light for arcing and corrosion. (The female pin is in the vehicle harness connector and the male is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly.) If found, because the male connector is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly, you'll have to replace the Lamp Holder Assembly and the harness section coming in from the vehicle containing the female connector.

I just repaired this problem in the left tail light on my '01 van with a part from a '99 van I found at a local salvage yard.

How do i adjust the head lights on a 1997 grand marquis


AIMING THE HEADLIGHTS

On 1989-91 vehicles, the headlights can be aimed using the adjusting screws located above and to the side of the headlight bulbs. A rough adjustment can be made while shining the headlights on a wall or on the rear of another vehicle, but headlight adjustment should really be made using proper headlight aiming equipment.
On 1992-98 vehicles, the aerodynamically styled headlights necessitate the use of headlight aiming kit 107-00003 or equivalent. The adjustable aimer adapters provided in the kit must be used to aim the headlights. Adjustment aimer adapter positions are moulded into the bottom edge of the headlight lens. Set and lock the adjustable adapters, attach each adapter to its mechanical aimer and aim the headlights according to the instructions in the kit.
Headlight aim adjustment should be made with the fuel tank approximately half full, the vehicle unloaded and the trunk empty, except for the spare tire and jacking equipment. Make sure all tires are inflated to the proper pressure.
The headlights must be properly aimed to provide the best, safest road illumination. The lights should be checked for proper aim and adjusted as necessary. Certain state and local authorities have requirements for headlight aiming; these should be checked before adjustment is made.

CAUTION About once a year, when the headlights are replaced or any time front end work is performed on your vehicle, the headlight should be accurately aimed by a reputable repair shop using the proper equipment. Headlights not properly aimed can make it virtually impossible to see and may blind other drivers on the road, possibly causing an accident. Note that the following procedure is a temporary fix, until you can take your vehicle to a repair shop for a proper adjustment.
Headlight adjustment may be temporarily made using a wall, as described below, or on the rear of another vehicle. When adjusted, the lights should not glare in oncoming car or truck windshields, nor should they illuminate the passenger compartment of vehicles driving in front of you. These adjustments are rough and should always be fine-tuned by a repair shop which is equipped with headlight aiming tools. Improper adjustments may be both dangerous and illegal.
For most of the vehicles covered by this guide, horizontal and vertical aiming of each sealed beam unit is provided by two adjusting screws which move the retaining ring and adjusting plate against the tension of a coil spring. There is no adjustment for focus; this is done during headlight manufacturing.
Because the composite headlight assembly is bolted into position, no adjustment should be necessary or possible. Some applications, however, may be bolted to an adjuster plate or may be retained by adjusting screws. If so, follow this procedure when adjusting the lights, BUT always have the adjustment checked by a reputable shop.
Before removing the headlight bulb or disturbing the headlamp in any way, note the current settings in order to ease headlight adjustment upon reassembly. If the high or low beam setting of the old lamp still works, this can be done using the wall of a garage or a building:
  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, with the fuel tank about 1 / 2 full and with the vehicle empty of all extra cargo (unless normally carried). The vehicle should be facing a wall which is no less than 6 feet (1.8m) high and 12 feet (3.7m) wide. The front of the vehicle should be about 25 feet from the wall.

See Figure 6


1ad3b8e.jpg
Fig. 6: Example of headlight adjustment screw location for composite headlamps
  1. If aiming is to be performed outdoors, it is advisable to wait until dusk in order to properly see the headlight beams on the wall. If done in a garage, darken the area around the wall as much as possible by closing shades or hanging cloth over the windows.
  2. Turn the headlights ON and mark the wall at the center of each light's low beam, then switch on the brights and mark the center of each light's high beam. A short length of masking tape which is visible from the front of the vehicle may be used. Although marking all four positions is advisable, marking one position from each light should be sufficient.

See Figures 7 and 8


9018da5.jpg
Fig. 7: Low-beam headlight pattern alignment


fa6b141.jpg
Fig. 8: High-beam headlight pattern alignment
  1. If neither beam on one side is working, and if another like-sized vehicle is available, park the second one in the exact spot where the vehicle was and mark the beams using the same-side light. Then switch the vehicles so the one to be aimed is back in the original spot. It must be parked no closer to or farther away from the wall than the second vehicle.
  2. Perform any necessary repairs, but make sure the vehicle is not moved, or is returned to the exact spot from which the lights were marked. Turn the headlights ON and adjust the beams to match the marks on the wall.
  3. Have the headlight adjustment checked as soon as possible by a reputable repair shop.

Hope thats helped (remember rated this) Good luck.
