It is the actual light assembly with a built in mercury switch when the hood is raised the mercury moves to make connection for light. Not working? Or if you don't want it to work just unplug right at the light. Don't know of after market ones if you wanna fix it. Check Auto Zone in the Help section near the Car batteries.

After jump starting 2006 Z4 BMW headlight low beams don't work checked fuses in glove compartment and under hood all seemed to be ok is there a relay, what do i do now


If the lights are switched then the switch controls a rely all lights are switched on bmw. Can use fog lights temporarily. Find rely test with continuity meter when on, disconnect lights first, then turn on lights switch, check for 12v at light bulb terms, if 12v then bulbs bad, if not relay is bad, test with continuity meter, rely should read 0 ohms when lights switched on, infinite open circuit when switched off. If lights work in manual switch pos then solar sensor bad.

Where are the fuses located on the 2000 Blazer S10 4-wh dr? Brake lights (stop light


Hi,
You have a 10-amp mini fuse in the fuse box under the hood in the engine bay fuse block. And you also have a fuse in the RH lower corner for the stop lamps which is a 20 amp fuse.
Check these and let me know.
THanks

TURN KEY AND NOTHING, EVERY THING WORKS RADIO,HEATER AND LIGHTS, BUT NOTHING UNDER THE HOOD NOT A SOUND. THE CAR IS A 1999 CAVALIER


Open the hood and look for the engine compartment fuse block next to the driver's side firewall. Open the cover in order remove and inspect the fuse closest to the radiator labeled ING (Ignition) to see if the fuse connection is visibly broken or blown. If it is OK open the fuse panel located at the left end of the instrument panel inside the vehicle. To open, push the tab on the access door to the left and pull the door forward. Remove and inspect the two top right fused labeled IGN and PCM/IGN to see if the fuse connection is visibly broken or blown. Replace any defective fuses and try to start the vehicle. If it starts it could have been a bad connection or a more serious problem requiring service if the fuse keeps blowing. If it does not start it could be the ignition switch or starter.

Battery dead can not open hood to boost


The 1999 doesn't have the red connector in the fuse box. That method isn't possible.

But I had the same problem and fixed it. This will sound weird, but trust me, it works.

You need:

1) A paint stir stick.
2) A coat hanger straightened out with one end bent into a small "j" hook.
3) A flashlight.

There is a loop of cable that goes from the engine compartment latch to an area underneath the left rear tail light. Pulling on this cable will open the engine compartment.

To open the engine compartment, you need to:

1) Use the paint stir stick to gently pry up the left rear tail light slightly. Don't pry it up too much and break anything: just pry it up a little so that a small gap opens up between the bottom of the tail light and the car body.

2) Shine the flashlight into the gap and look for a small, thin stainless steel cable. Use the "j" hook end of the coat hanger to pull the cable out from under the tail light.

3) Once the cable has been pulled out enough so that you can grasp it with your fingers, give it a sharp tug. This will pop open the latch to the engine compartment. Now you can jump the battery and start the car.

Good Luck!

"ENGINE COMPARTMENT

Never use a fuse of a higher or lower
amperage rating than specified on the
fuse box cover. This could damage the
electrical system or cause a fire.
If any electrical equipment does not come on,
check for an open fuse.
1. Be sure the ignition switch and the headlight
switch are OFF.
2. Open the engine hood.
3. Remove the fuse box cover by pushing the
tab and lifting the cover up.
4. Locate the blown fuse. or look on fuse box cover to see what each fuse does.
5. Remove the fuse with the fuse puller. The
fuse puller is located in the center of the fuse
block in the passenger compartment."
Replace fuse.
