First identify if your day running lights (DRL) are working. The DRL and high beams will work on the same relay. If your DRL are working, but not your high beams, you may need to replace your high beam relay which is found in the fuse panel under the hood of the engine at the right back corner; near the firewall, and passenger tire strut mount. If there is also a problem with your DRL with the high beams, its likely the DRL relay which can be found tucked under the dash.

There's usually a cover that says "relays", "fuses", etc. Lift the cover and look underneath, it should label the relays. If not, consult a manual or repair book. Try swapping similar relays from know working accessories if you don't have a new one handy.

My 2001 s10 drivers side low beam headlight seems to work on automatic during the day , but not work at night on auto or switch on ?


The daytime lights run off the highbeam circuit on reduced voltage. If the lowbeam is not operational, take a look at the plug at the headlight and inspect for looseness. If tight, inspect for a constant ground and a 12v power supply with the headlights turned on low beam at the headlight connector. repair a necessary

Daytime running lights not working


Assuming this is an LX, check 7.5A fuses 9 and 5 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box. Fuse 9 applies power to the DRL indicator light in the gauge assembly which connects to the DRL control unit. Fuse 5 supplies power to the DRL control unit when the ignition is on. Also check 100A fuse 41 in the underhood fuse/relay box which supplies power to the headlight relays. Setting the headlight switch to HEAD causes the headlight relays to close and apply power through 20A fuses 45 and 43 in the underhood fuse/relay box to the low beams. Low beam power also passes through the DRL diode to close the high beam cut relay and prevent high beam use during DRL operation.

The dark interstate late at night is not the time to loose your headlights. I checked the fuses and the bulbs. Last time this happened, which was about 2 years ago, I had to have the day runner sensor...


Swap relay #45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay #46 is for the low beams, #45 is for fan clutch. If this does not cure it, did you try setting the headlight switch to the Headlamps position? Make sure you checked the correct fuse as well, it is #6 in the underhood fuse panel.

2003 Jeep Grand Cheeroke radiator fan runs when car is off draining battery. Could it be the relay? If yes is the relay in the fuse/relay box under the hood or under the passenger headlight?


After checking the conventional relays and fuses, we found an additional auxiliary cooling fan relay behind the front bumper. Once replaced, all is well.

The fan relay is likely shorted and keeping the fan motor energized; to check this you can remove the relays from the fuse panel... remove the cooling fan rely from the underhood PDC (Power Distribution Center). Fot this and additional fuse details, check this link: wjjeeps.com/fuses.htm

Hope helps.

When I turn on my headlights the lowbeam lights will not come on. I switched the highbeam and lowbeam wires to see if it was the wires or the lights. the lowbeam lights came on when i put the high beam...


It is either the light switch or the headlight relay, I would say first go for the relay as it carries the actual load of the lights. It will not be a fuse, the headlights are fused individually.

None of my wipers work. We were driving in the rain, and both the from and back wipers just quit. I did not check the fuses because they are 2 seperate fuses.


Both the front and rear wipers have a couple things in common. They are both powered by the 'Wiper System Relay". This relay supplies the power to both the front and rear wiper fuses. I would check for power at both of the fuses. If there is no power, then there is a problem with the relay or the relay circuits. The relay and both of these fuses are located in the underhood fuse/relay box. Please note that there is a "Wiper System Relay" as well as "Front Wiper Relay" and "Rear Wiper Relay" Why??? I don't know...some engineer at Saturn worked out his job-security with this one, I guess...

Any way, the Wiper System Relay feeds both of the fuses which, in turn, feed the two other relays.
The primary side of this relay is controlled by the Ignition 2 circuit from the ignition switch, so the relay is energized any time the ignition switch is on. (sounds like a good way to overheat and burn up a relay to me...but who am I??? I am not an engineer, I just get paid to deal with their stupidity)

The secondary side of this relay gets its power directly from the battery...no fuses in between, just a fusiblelink. This link is not the problem because there would be a whole bunch of other stuff not working - including your engine computer.

If I were to take a guess, it would be the relay.

Let me know if this helps you. Take a moment to rate my solution this will let me, as well as other know.
