    1995 Buick LaSabre headlights go out then back on by themselves after about 15 minutes. Once the circuit warms up the lights stays on.

There is a circuit breaker, in the headlight switch itself which will cause symptoms you are describing. I believe switch has to be replaced, and cannot be serviced/repaired, but double check that with your parts supplier, or dealer.

Intermittent Cruise Control Issue - cuts out when small bump in road is hit and may or may not re-engage after that.

Check the wire connector that plugs into the cruise control under the hood. Sounds like a loose connection. Remove the and reinsert the wire connector several times to make a better connection. Stepping on the brake pedal disengages the cruise control by a switch on the brake pedal, not the computer.

I have a 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer, having problems with many of the lights. When I turn on the headlights, the signals dont work and neither do the low beams. The signal lights in the dash remain...

Many times after hitting bumps or holes in the roads. Loose connection ! Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on lighting then under subsystem click on thing's your having problems with . See if they share a common grounding point or a connector in the wiring harness ,power supply etc.... Check by wiggling connections , wiring harness etc.. till you find were you can make the lights go on an off .

Fuse blows when lights turned on yet headlights ok. hazard lights ok too. it appears to be a problem with switch or wiring.

Tail lights OK too or are they blown. Could be centry lights working and no tail or running lights. Trace wires out of column to check for arc and also check wires at taillights, sometimes wires get damaged back there.

Headlights on suzuki sidekick jx 1994

hitting the top of the light indicates to me that the plug into the light may be bad or loose. also follow the three wires back and make sure they haven't jiggled out of the connectors. within a few inches of the plug there should be male and female connectors again on the wires that may have gotten loose.
