In most 1993 Chevy Subrubans the headlights do not have an automatic option. It is possible to get this feature installed but factor settings do not have this option installed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ? The automatic headlights aren't the problem. The engine dies when you turn on the headlights or press on the break pedal.

    I know that the it doesn't come with automatic headlights. The headlights working isn't the problem. When you turn on the headlights, the whole engine just dies.

SOURCE: 1993 saturn sl engine dies

I just had this problem with my 97 sc1. I found that the driver's rear tail lights were staying on dim when ever the car was running. In my situation, the cluster of wires that ties to the rear tail light is also the wires that tie to the fuel pump. Every time you hit the brake, it shorted out and cut the power to the fuel pump. Test for this problem by pulling one of your tail light bulbs, if the car shuts off or wont start without it, this could be your problem.

92 ACCORD what causes the gauges to quit working when the brake pedal is depressed, another problem is turning on the headlights and the engine dies any answer's ?


Hi Christopher:
I'd be checking to make sure that the grounds are nice and clean and working properly. When you step on the brake pedal you are activating a switch that sends power to the brake lights. The brake lights share bulbs with the signals and emergency flashers, so it is also possible that a dead short in any of those components could "steal" the power from the ignition.
At this point, it's a trouble shoot game for you to figure out what is working, and what is not.
That's part of the fun. Enjoy.

The brake light does not turn on even after replacing with a new one


All vehicle brake lights use a switch to determine if the lights are on or off. This switch, known as a stoplight switch, consists of a plunger-style button that breaks and completes a circuit. When the brake pedal is pressed, the plunger comes outward, completes the circuit and the lights turn on. There are several faults that can make your brake lights stay on. The circuit may go bad and remain completed, or the rubber stopper on the brake pedal stalk could fall off or come apart. If nothing is keeping the plunger pressed in, the circuit remains open.
