Try hitting your dome over ride switch 4 times with the truck running. You should hear a couple of dings and your headlights should shut off. Now hit the switch 4 more times and see if that resets the auto lamp system. If not the next thing I would check is the brake light switch, its under slightly under the dash attached to you brake pedal. Those can slip out of the proper position and cause problems with some of the electrical systems.

WHAT YOU MIGHT CHECK IS THE FUSE FOR TAILLIGHTS, OR DASH LIGHTS. THEY WORK OFF THE SAME FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS BLOWN THE HEADLIGHTS WORK BUT NO TAIL OR DASH LIGHTS

Dome lights won't work on my 2005 Chevy equinox


The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights


You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

Can the 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Limited Coupe automatically turn on the low beam head lamps at night?


No. It has auto lamps.all newer vehicles have them. Some you can turn off. You have to have the light switch in the dash. If it is in the turn signal switch/ column. Your out of luck.

the dash lamp switch to do it from drivers seat.

Door jamb switch


all doors there are drivers, and then OTHERS, (wiring)
its wired OR logic, so any switch grounds, it turns them on.
and is programmable on all cars. to have this on or off (features explained in the operators guide, lost that?)

CRV has 3 lamps
front dome
rear dome
and spots.
all of them are messed up? for all doors.
if yes, ITS programming. is wrong.

the rear light is directly controlled lamp to rear lamp. (hatch glass or gate switches.
and has a slide switch, off,on, auto.
the spots lamps are direct. on, or off
the front however is totally different and wired unique.
as you know the drivers door is unique, as it operates the
keys left in igntion, or head lights left on, mode. so if those work
right then the drivers door switch, is,, working......
the front dome
has 3 modes. again , off , on and auto .
Auto is the MCU , unit, the MCU sees any door open and the front dome gets input to the AUTO pin, and if in auto the lamp glows.
i dont think the MCU is programmable but do read the oper guide for that., i dont have one.

I have a 98 chevy malibu. the tail lights, running lights and instrument lights do not work but head lights do


The good news is that all of these problems stem from the same source: the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood wiring harness junction block. When you set the turn/headlamp/wiper switch to PARK, the park lamp relay in the junction block closes and power is applied to the front marker lamps and the park filament of the front park/turn lamps as well as the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps.

As for the instrument lights, that same PARK LPS fuse applies power to the same turn/headlamp/wiper switch that, when set to PARK or HEAD applies power to the variable panel dimmer switch which lets you set the illumination level. Switch output is applied to the lamp dimmer module and module output passes through the 10A INST LAMPS fuse in the right I/P wiring harness junction block to the instrument lamps

I have a 1995 chevy caprice... the headlights intermitantly go off and on. I have changed the multi fundtion switch and the high/low beam switch but problem still lingers.. any suggestions?


Did you try the head lamp switch.The one on the dash not the steering column?if you have power going in then when you turn the head lights on you should have power going out.Power in would be the red wire and going out would be the yellow wire when you turn the lights on.Does your vehicle have twilight sentinel?This is auto lights where they go on by them selves when you have them in auto mode.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Push the interior light defeat button (by the headlamp switch) 4 times in a row. Auto headlights now off. To turn feature back on, push button 4 more times or turn truck off then restart.
