SOURCE: CHEVY 1500 TRUCK HEADLIGHTS TURN OFF WHEN YOU TURN ON SWITCH

If you have replaced the switch, and it is still doing it it sounds like you definately have a short somewhere in your wiring. On the other hand if the dimmer is in the turn signal arm ( forward bright back dim ) the problem could also be there in the dimmer switch, such as a short being caused by that dimmer switch being faulty.Auto Zone and Discount Auto Parts both test a lot of your electrical problems for free, and/or may have some knowledge to more accurately pin point the problem. Not sure about Pep Boys or some of the other discount auto part chains.

SOURCE: chevy cavalier 1996 headlight not working,day

Did you replace the relay for the day time running lights which for some dumb reason is mounted under the front bumper? Climb under and look straight up and you should see it...mine was mounted in about the center (on the frame in front of the radiator. Sounds similar to an issue I had and it cleared up once I replaced the part...had to get from dealer still.

SOURCE: i only have high beam headlights

about troubleshooting your headlights on your vehicle. I would isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illuminates with the headlight switch on. ---- Also check the wires, and check the fuse for your low beams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.
Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
There is something to check. Does the low beam relay click when you turnt he low beams on?
if it does not click then
Then find the BCM at the base of the steering column. In there find the grey connector and in there, find the pink/white wire in terminal A4. Use a wire to jump that wire to ground. IF the low beams come on, then it is likely the BCM is bad.
Also check a bad wire between the fuse block and the BCM. before replacing the BCM . Start under the fuse block. This is the fuse block under the hood.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Dash lights either work or not if the system is fused. With one light not working it suggests the problem is the lamp(bulb). I am sorry to say it has to be dash insert out to access behind where the lamps are located. Only competent people should do this for you. Only when the lamp is checked can you determine if thats the problem or if the fault is else where.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Interior dash lights are very dim and hard to see at night. Is this a problem just needing a new fuse?


If the lights are on it means the fuse is OK. The switch for the dash lights works like a dimmer switch. It may just need adjusting or the switch may be faulty. Switch location can be found in the owner's manual. If adjusting the switch doesn't work you will need to have it checked at the garage.
