Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S 1994 headlights are staying on when switch is off. Took switch out and still headlights are on. Thinking it might be a relay. Need location of it, if so the problem.


Is it high beam or low beams that are on? Do you have drl? Can't rule out problem with drl module? The headlamp switch has an internal circuit breaker, no relay. The diagram is part of headlamps/drl.

My headlights and running lights don't work and my high beams barely stay on. Sometimes I have to hold up the high beam lever to make them stay on. I have checked the circuit breakers and they are not


On this model the headlight switch provides ground for the lights.
You have a right and left 15amp fuse for the headlights, not circuit breakers.
The parking lights use 3 different fuses. The headlight switch sends power to the body computer which activates a parking lamp relay.
Those components would need to be tested to verify the problem.

Headlights will not shut off after the car has been shut off the only way to shut them off is to disconnect the battery


Your vehicle is equipped with an "Auto Lamp" system. The headlamps will stay on for as long as 3 minutes depending on how you have the control set. If you are certain that this is not the problem and/or your headlamps will not turn off after 3 minutes, perform these checks:

1. CHECK HEADLAMP SWITCH OPERATION
Ensure that the headlamp switch is off. Disconnect the headlamp switch connectors. If the headlamps go foff, replace the headlamp switch. If the headlamps are still on, go to the next step.

2. CHECK CIRCUIT No. 15
Remove autolamp parking lamp relay from the under hood Power Distribution Center (PDC), near the battery. If the headlamps are off, go to the next step. If the headlamps are still on, repair the short to battery voltage in circuit No. 15 (RED/YELLOW wire).

3. CHECK AUTOLAMP RELAY GROUND CIRCUIT
Remove the autolamp parking light relay from the PDC. Measure the resistance between ground (BATTERY NEGATIVE) and terminal No. 2 (DARK BLUE/ORANGE wire) at the autolamp relay wiring harness connector. If resistance is 5 Ohms or less, continue to the next step. If the resistance is more than 5 Ohms, replace the autolamp relay.

4. CHECK THE LIGHT SENSOR AMPLIFIER
Reconnect all components. Disconnect the light sensor amplifier located in the defroster grille on the top of the dash. If the headlamps are off, replace the light sensor amplifier. If the headlamps are on, repair short to ground in circuit No. 218 (WHITE/PURPLE wire) to the headlamp switch.

Headlights on high beam for extended period of time. begin to flash headlights on and off. Eventually staying off.


if you look in the relay box in the engine compartment ,their should be a relay for headlamps ,most of the relays in there are the same number try swap.or the headlamp switch which might have a circuit breaker in it which will reset after the lights go out.

1994 ford f-150 with day time running lights headlightnot working


Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamp (DRL) system is designed to turn the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output, and without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the instrument panel. You have a DRL Module.
The multifunction switch is the stalk on your column.

This is 96 F150 circuit. Don't have 94.

Green light on instrument panel


Hiya--the green headlamp logo on the instrument panel comes on automatically after you start up the engine.
The green light comes on when your headlight switch is on 'auto' until you turn it to 'parking lights' or 'full on' function, that'll turn off the green light...it's normal.
The other thing is if one of 2 headlight bulb reach the end of bulb life, the green light will flash on/off a few times then stay off....until you or the garage shop put in new headlight bulb.

No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria


does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

--------------------------------
Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • photocell and amplifier
Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

Removal and Installation
  1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
  1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
  1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
  1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
  1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
---------------------------------

the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.
