That would probably be the dimmer switch.

How to open hood of broken cable Kia Sedona 2005


sorry to hear you have a snapped hood cable you can access the long hood lever from the front grill with a screw driver, but the problem is the actual catch that as a very strong spring but with the hood catch released and a long screw driver and a bright torch you can with a struggle go between the catch at an angle to price the catch claw to one side, but at the same time being carful not to damage your front grill, you can not take the front grill off as it is bolted on.. It also depend on what end of the cable as broken if it in the cab you can cut the outer case back a little bit to get to the inner cable to pull it with pliers or grips, but if it's the catch end then you are going to struggle as the is a metal shroud that covers the catch so there is no way to get to the catch lever to be able to operate it by leverage. I'm sorry but you are going to struggle but it can be done.

Very good luck to you hope you do it on your first attempt but release the hood lock so your not struggling against that.

Bright lights switch won't stay on bright on my 2002 Monte Carlo ss, why


Are you pulling lever back towards you then releasing. If so that is for flashing your lights. Try pushing forward on same lever that should latch it in to high beam.

I have 2006 grand prix and the bright lights wont come on. I move the blinker lever forward and the low beams stay on but i get the blue bright light on the dash, checked fuses all seem to be okay


do you hear the click of the dimmer switch when you move the lever if you do then the steel rod that goes from the lever to the switch itself is working and the switch is moving from the low beam to high beam circuit.if the blue dash indicator is on them power is coming out of the switch to the dash to operate the light.its possible that the dimmer switch may need to be adjusted a little if you don`t hear the click but moves enough to put the dash light on but not enough to turn the high beams on,that is possibly why the low lights stay on.or you have a bad dimmer switch itself

My high beam switch won't stay clicked onto bright lights I have dims - but the lever won't keep my brights on. I can hold the lever forward and I have brights - but when I release the lever, I go back...


Try turning the headlight control knob clockwise so that the arrow is pointing up. You may only have it in daytime lights mode and not actually in headlight mode.

Does this model use a 4 headlight bright system? I have 2 low beam lights but when I put on the bright lights the 2 low beam lights go out and only the 2 bright lights stay on.


I think that many 1990s and even some 1980s GM vehicles with seemingly 4 headlight systems actually use only 2 at a time.

My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, for instance, had 2 high beams that went on independently of the 2 low beam lights when switched with the turn signal lever.

In the 1970s the GM vehicles had 4 headlight systems where all 4 headlights would go on, but they used sealed beams rather than the capsule lights that are used nowadays.

For instance, our 1976 Cadillac Seville has a 4 headlight system that lights up 4 headlights on the high beam mode.

Good luck on seeing at night with the current set up.

Brights won't stay on


It appears the switch lever itself is broken. When you pull back and release the lever, there should be a clicking sound.

Fog lights will not turn on in my 2008 rdx


When the light are turned on, the dim lights have to be on the up position on the lever that turns the light on. I had my lever in the down position, which is for the bright lights and when pushed up will automatically put on the dim lights and fog lights when turned on. I should have realized this problem my-self.
