Right low beam headlight does not come on but my right turn signal will stay even tho i diddnt turn it on. If I cut on my high beams the rurn signal cuts off. Whats wrong? Helo


It could be the lamp control module !
Headlamps
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times to the lamp control module (LCM) through the underhood fuse block HDLP fuse.
When you place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, the headlamps input to the LCM is grounded. The LCM then applies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood fuse block HDLOBML fuse and HDLOBMR fuse, which feed the left low beam headlamp and the right low beam headlamp respectively. When you activate the headlamp dimmer switch by pulling on the multifunction lever until the switch clicks, the high beam input circuit to the LCM in grounded . The LCM then removes battery positive voltage (B+) from the low beam headlamps and supplies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood fuse block HDHIBML fuse and HDHIBMR fuse, which feed the left high beam headlamp and the right high beam headlamp respectively.
Check this fuse in the left under hood fuse box first. HDLOBMR Fuse 18 10 Amp. RH Low Beam Headlamp . If the fuse is good check for B+ voltage with the low beams on . Use a test light or volt meter . If you look on top of fuse there are two metal tabs ,check there for B+ voltage , If no B+ voltage the LCM - lamp control module isn't supplying any .

Why wont the headights or running lights work on my 2002 Buick LaSabre?


There are several reasons why your headlamps an running lights don't work , the headlamp switch is a good one ,plus relays an the DIM - dash integrated module an associated wiring ! Here is how the headlamps work , right out of Buick factory service info !
The dash integration module (DIM) provides battery positive voltage to the signal circuits of the headlamp switch. The signal circuits include the headlamp switch headlamps on signal, the flash to pass switch signal and the high beam input. With the headlamp switch in the ON position, a ground path is available for the headlamp switch headlamps on signal circuit of the DIM through the headlamp switch. The DIM provides ground to either the headlamps high beam relay control circuit or the headlamps low beam relay control circuit of the low beam circuit. The position of the headlamp dimmer switch determines which relay control circuit has ground. The DIM supplies battery positive voltage to the relay control circuits, if the headlamps are necessary. The fuse block - underhood supplies battery positive voltage to both relay switch circuits. When the low beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both low beam fuses and to the low beam headlamps. The headlamps have ground at G103 and at G401. When the headlamp high beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both high beam fuses and to the high beam headlamps. The high beam circuit is divided into a left and right side circuit. The current flow of the left high beam is from the fuse to the left high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flows to the normally-closed contact of the DRL relay to G103. The current flow of the right high beam is from the fuse to the right high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flow is to ground at G401. When the headlamp dimmer switch lever is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes. This grounds the DIM flash to pass switch signal circuit. In response to this input, the DIM energizes the HDLP HI BM relay. Both high beams remain on until the driver releases the switch handle. If the low beam headlamps were on during a flash to pass operation, the low beams remain on. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the headlamp dimmer switch lever.
By running lights , do you mean park lamps or day time running lamps ?
Park, Tail, License and Marker Lamps
The park lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or ON position or anytime the headlights are requested. The fuse block - rear supplies battery positive voltage to the switch contacts of the Park LP relay. When the headlamp switch is in PARK or in ON, the park lamp switch on signal circuit of the DIM has a ground path. The DIM provides battery positive voltage to the control circuit of the Park LP relay. When the park lamps and/or the tail lamps are ON, the DIM energizes the park lamp relay control circuit. This closes the switch contacts. Current flows from the Park LP relay to the LH PARK LP and the RH PARK LP fuses. From the fuse, the current flows to the park lamps. The left park lamps are grounded at G103, G401 and G402. The right park lamps and the right tail lamps are grounded at G103 and G401. The DIMR fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the license lamps and to the DIM instrument panel lamp fuse supply voltage - 1 circuit, for interior lamps dimming. The license lamps are grounded at G401.
The best advice I can give is that you take this to a ASE certified professional repair facility unless your a qualified automotive electric repair person !
Diagnostic Starting Point - Lighting Systems
Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Lighting Systems . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

My high beams won't turn off, even when my truck is not on. 05' Chevy Silverado 1500


The headlamps are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM) The first thing I would check for is the Headlamp Hi Relay. It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box. If pulling the relay out turns your high beams off, try taking out the low beam relay and putting it in the high beam position. If the headlamps stay off, try plugging the high beam relay into the low beam position. If the low beams now come on, the relay is shorted.

If none of this works, I would recommend scanning your BCM to see if there are any fault codes.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport with no high or low beams. when i pull the signal/wiper arm towards me i get the "passing" high beam but other than that i am running on just fog lights. fuses...


yes, ideas,your headlight switch on the steering column may be going bad. try tilting your steering column up and down while pulling headlight switch on, do your headlights turn on and off by them selfs? careful!! this is a hot or positive wire grounding to metal,which could lead to a fire in the steering column!! do you ever see,or smell smoke coming from the steering wheel? if you do,disconnect the positive cable from your battery immeadiatlly!! the only way to replace the switch is the removal of your steering wheel,if you are'nt mechanically inclined,i recommend you get a 2nd opinion and go forward with your problem as it can lead to a fire in your steering wheel or fuse panel! if all your fuses are good,and only have fog lights,but no low or high beams,but pull back on the turn signal switch,you have a problem with the headlight switch.located on the 'turn signal,high beam,low beam switch' on the steering column. the only way to repair,is replace it. sorry!! can recommend autozone auto parts,advance auto parts or try used parts place.but if you are keeping the car,recommend"new" part replacement. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!if we can be of further assistance,please repost your questions to fixya.com!

98 ford lariat. Headlights stopped working. running lights come on and brake lights and turn signals. checked all fuses under dash and under hood, pulled out headlight switch and it looks fine. note only...


Is this both the high beams and low beams that do not work ?

If you checked all 3 fuses with a meter ( with the headlamp in Low position for both low beam fuses or in high for the high beam fuse ), the next items to test are the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ) and the main headlamp switch ( test not look at it ).

My 1991 Caravan headlights won't turn off and the highbeam indicator light stays on. I've been told that the problem is likely the daytime running lights module. Where is this module located in the vehicle...


Sounds more like a stuck high beam relay. Daytime running lights module appeared sometime after '99 year. The relay should be in the fuse compartment. Pull it out to check that it is only the high beam that is on. Pull the low beam relay and place in the high beam location. If it turns on the high beams again, then try the dimmer switch to see if they go out. If that has no effect, then there is a sneak path somewhere that is turning the relay on.

Head lights wont turn off after turnning off car


See if you have fuse under dash or under hood if more fuses in there that is marked DRL , or DRL module. (daytime running light module) may be at fault. Pulling that fuse may isolate problem, otherwise you may have to pull connector off back of light switch to test it.
