    Thanks for the comment juanitaanitaO. But what switch are you talking about? What did you do with it once you got it? Do you mean headlight switch? Is that part of the multipurpose switch or something separate? Thanks again.

I need to find the flasher relay for a grand marquis 2001 .does it has one? My turn signals wont work I can hear the sound but don't even flash


Yes, it does have a flasher, although it may be a combined unit with the hazard flashers relay. So you hear the clicking of the flasher relay? That seems to indicate the relay is working properly. Have you checked the bulbs and the turn signal fuse? Any turn signal bulbs light up anywhere, front or back?
How about your brake lights, do they work? Your car may have separate, stand alone turn signals in the rear, but many American cars use the same bulb and same filament on the bulb for the brake lights and turn signals. If your merc is like this and the brake lights work, then the bulb must be good.
Turn on the hazard flashers and see if all bulbs work and flash at each corner of the car. This would be the same bulb as for the turn signals. If they work, it could be a bad turn signal switch, may even be the flasher relay somehow malfunctioning, and in a few cases, a bad hazard switch can affect the turn signal switch. Check fuses and bulbs first. If you have any type of body control module that controls lights and other accessories, you may have to investigate that. I know I'm not being very helpful, just throwing out a few suggestions. Good luck.

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights


Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

I have a 2003 pontic grand am i dont know why the interor lights, dash lights, and tail lights, aren t working at all! break lights work. right turn light works, left turn light clicks like 4 times faster...


The headlight switch is common to all your problems except the quick flash of the turn lights on one side the quick flash is usally a bad bulb as the tailights have two and one could be out and it'll still work just it changes the flash quicker with no load too little and it'll not blink just stay on. Theres fuses for the dash lights but the tailight fuse has to be good for it to get power. Any crash damaged lights need to be checked out as water getting into the sockets can mke a problem. The marker lights on the front do'nt work either. Fuse or headlight switch now remember that the radio has a light in it too and if someones changed the radio alot of aftermarkey readios don't use the run light as they are on withthe radio on and this wire may be touchin ground or be hooked up wrong at the lights the wire color is brown. It's highly unlikly that alot of bulbs failed at one but the car is old. Start with fuses and if the tail fuse is blown and it has an odd radio pull it disconnect it and try another fuse

Headlights don't work.


There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.

Why did you replace the switch without checking the headlight bulbs first? Suggest you check the headlight bulbs, if they are good, then check the connectors, if they are good, then check the fuse box. Sometimes there is a fuse for the healights right and left. If all of that is good check your ground connections. If all of that is good, then is to basics........check continuity on the harness, ensure there is current through the connector to the lights contact.

If all of athe above is good, then I always advise to check the fuse links. You might have burned one out. They are usually located near the battery.
