It sounds like you have a Bad Switch or Relay For the Headlights. This would cause them not to turn off.

check the main earth wire near the battery. and one near the rear of the lights. unbolt them and clean the connectors up put some grease on them after. then check again. remember that when the earth wires come off the radio code will be needed to reset the the radio. be safe and take the battery off.

Loose ground wire


It may be for factory fog/driving lights or second horn etc. that are not part of your vehicle's specific accessory package. Car manufacturers sometimes use a "one size fits all" wiring harness to shorten manufacturing time and reduce "special" wiring harness parts stocks. These harnesses have plugs and wires in them that don't attach to things your car isn't equipped with but would in other cars that have other "extras" yours doesn't. Also it could be the outside air temperature sensor which quite a few manufactures mount out in that area. The best option is to use some plastic tye-wraps and secure it up inside the body. Attaching it to other parts of the wiring harness is best so it doesn't accidentally rub against a metal frame part and short out later.

Head lights, tail lights and dash lights don't work. inside lights, brake lights, and back up lights do work.


need so check ground wires. start at your head lights and fallow the wire harness til you see a wire grounded to the body. check and make sure connections are good and that the wire isnt broken anywhere

My tail lights on my 1999 chevy venture work when they won't to and I think it's a ground short.. But I don't know where to look for it!


get a wiring diagram, follow this circuit, wire by wire, start @ rear, your tail lights, check each bulb, then proceed to front, along frame rail, to switch & fuse block. test for continuity & shorts, bad wires, corrosion, etc

I have a 2002 grand prix gr 4 door and the front driver side window won't roll up. I'm trying to use a jumper wire but do not know which one is the power wire and don't have access to a test...


Pink wire is ignition in to switch / module. Check the door hinge area and the rubber boot where all the wiring runs. Most likly a broken wire or two in that flex joint. Not uncommon.
If none of the above works, most likly the switch may be bad.

The directional signals in my car stopped working. I don't begin to know what fuse to change...can you please help me Thank you


if the signals stopped working, ( yet they light up, just don't flash) then its not a fuse you need, its a flasher unit, the flasher is a 3 prong, square unit that is located just above the emergency break pedal on the inside face of the lower dash panel. To replace this flasher you should start by removing the 2, 9/32" bolt head retaining screws holding the black access panel just above the break pedal. Lay down on your back and look up inside the dash. You may find the round hazard flasher high just above your head, this is not it. Stick you hand up along the panel in front of the emergency break pedal just behind the trunk release button. Locate with your hand a 2 inch long square relay box and move it to unhook it from it's clip. (If the flasher is the factory flasher it will have a metal clip retaining it under the dash. Your new part will not have this clip.) Route the old flasher and wire down so that it hangs from under the dash. Now you can see it and disconnect it. There are multiple connectors, but only three of them line-up and actually have metal receptors inside the socket. Take note of the removal of the flasher so you are not confused during reinstallation. I think the other connectors are for additional features not needed in the US. Take the part to the parts store or just replace with new one. Relocate the flasher safely up in the dash in relatively the same place and make sure it won't move around. return the black panel to its position above the break pedal and replace the 2, 9/32" retaining screws.
