Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer

Head lights went off while driving.

My wife was driving home (after dark) and the headlights went off. She pulled over and tried the switch and still no lights. All other lights work but the headlights.

    It turned out to be the altinator. The altinator caused the voltage regulator to go bad and burned both headlights out.

    I appreciate your trying.

    Both head lights went out at once. Fuses are good. Flood and running lights work. Cant seem to find the problem with the headlights and why they both would go out at the same time.

There is a Relay for the Headlights and Fuses also. Check under the Hood in the Fuse Relay Box and the Fuse Panel on the Inside. They should be Marked as HL or RHL and LHL. Also just check Really Close for Blown Fuses. Let me know if you need any Further Help. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help I can get! Thanks!

Headlights stopped working

I think it's either the headlight switch or the dimmer switch. I would get a manual on your car. Head light switch you have to take apart the colum to replace it.

Oldsmobile intrigue problems

The switch is bad >
Each headlamp is individually fused so that battery voltage is applied to the individual lamps at all times through circuit 1640 for the LH headlamps and through circuit 1740 for the RH headlamps. When the headlamp switch is in HEAD, the ground is applied directly to headlamp switch through circuit 1750. When the headlamp switch is placed in LOW, ground is applied to the low beam headlamps through circuit 1201. When the headlamp switch is placed in HIGH, ground is applied to the high beam lamps and to the high beam indicator through circuit 1200. The high beam indicator is fused so that battery voltage is applied at all times through circuit 640.

The box you hear the click in is the daytime running lights control module .

I have a 96 Yukon just last night the daytime lights went out both of them can you help me please..Barry

Im not sure I am following you. When it gets dark enough the "daytime" running lights should go off and the headlights and tail lights should come on for night time driving. The head light switch must be set in the "auto" position.
