You alternator looks like it need checking. it may be overcharging.would have the volts checked check with engine running should be a most 14 volts at idel with no load lights on 12.85volts or around that voltage any higher and it can damage the electrical system.

SOURCE: My headlights won't come on and my ABS and lights won't go off...

did you get the stereo professionally installed? if so i would take it back to them and have them check the wiring.......although it sounds like the battery is no longer charging.Have you tried to charge it or get a boost? if everything seems to work properly with a boost then you definitely have a charging issue....(one simple test to see if your alternator is working is to start the vehicle and while its running remove the neg cable....... if it dies the charging system in not working)
hope this helps.Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2003 Kia Sedona low beam headlights keep burning out

Check the battery voltage. If it is 15 volts or higher, it might be a bad regulator in the alternator. High voltage will kill light bulbs.

No dim headlights

Check low beam bulbs for being burned out. Maybe one burned out and was not noticed until the second was burned out.

My 2003 Saturn Vue dash lights, headlights, power steering, and radio are randomly turning on and off. What is causing the malfunction? Is this going to be a dealer only fix?

check the battery connections are clean and TIGHT as a loose battery connection would cause these symptoms , check the earth for corrosion etc as well

Kia sedona 2002, ABS light always blink for about a second or two almost every day and shortly after my headlights burns out. Please, can someone help me out? I am tired of buying bubs.

It is possible that your alternator is overcharging/sending too much electricity to the headlights, the headlights are most likely on a different circuit than the other electrical circuits. Usually they have there own circuit because they use so much power, There is usually a relay circuit that works (like a solenoid) which connects the larger wire together. Also if the relay or solenoid is bad then maybe the lights are flipping on and off and it blows the blubs. Also it is possible that you have a short in the wiring which goes to the bulbs which causes power fluxuations which blows the bulbs. Are you sure the bulbs actually burn out? Or do you replace them in the daytime after they burnout or go off at night driving. You also have a Circuit breaker which can cut the lights off, then perhaps after the car shuts off and cools down a few hours it resets and works again, again this would be a sign of a short OR your using the wrong size or wattage bulbs which takes more electric than normal for the circuit breaker.

2001 Acura mdx abs light stays on. Code reads 04?

I think you pulled the code incorrectly, or are reading it wrong. To get code:
1. Jump pins 4 & 9 on OD2 connector.
2. Turn key 2 clicks.
3. ABS light should blink to give you code. (long blinks for first digit, short ones for second. Example: One long blink and three short blinks would be 13).
Honda ABS trouble codes list :
11= Right front wheel sensor (open/short to body ground/short to power)
12= Faulty right front wheel sensor pulse signal
13= Left front wheel sensor (open/short to body ground/short to power)
14= Faulty left front wheel sensor pulse signal
15= Right rear wheel sensor (open/short to body ground/short to power)
16= Faulty right rear wheel sensor pulse signal
17= Left rear wheel sensor (open/short to body ground/short to power)
18= Faulty left rear wheel sensor pulse signal
21= Continous Operation (chipped pulser)
31-38 are all the same: "solenoid"
51= Motor lock
52= Motor stuck off
53= Motor stuck on
54= Main realy stuck off
61= Ignition voltage
81= CPU (central processing unit)

My 92 crown vic has blinking headlights when driving

The headlight switch has a built in 22 amp circuit breaker. It maybe doing it's job by opening and closing to prevent an electrical wire from burning. It opens when there is a 12 volt positive short to ground (negative). This may be caused by something as simple as a bad or damaged bulb. ( pull the headlight switch to the first position. does the parking lights blink on and off? if so then the short is in the parking light circuit. If not, then pull the switch all the way out. Does the headlights blink on and off? if so then the short is in the headlight circuit.) Check high and low beams.
When the lights are on, visually look to see if any light is not working. If there is a light not working, it may be the point of the short. The built in circuit breaker may also be shorting due to a damaged wire to a light caused by body damage, road salt corrosion, a wire that has fallen against the exhaust manifold, a pinched wire going to the license lamp, or other condition that would damage a wire.

I've noticed that my high beam indicator light is always on even when the key is removed, and that my day time driving lights are very very dim, could it be a short????

Yes, it could be a resistive short (versus a dead short) which means enough current is being pulled thru the short to cause the headlights to dim, but not enough to open a breaker or blow a fuse/link. Sounds like the short is in the headlight circuit. Check all connections.

Electrical blinker problem

If the battery drain gauge is registering the "blinks" there is definitely a short between the two wires. As one signal is told to blink they both get power and split the power causing the dim lights. This extra load is enough to momentarily cause heating in the wires and raise the circuit resistance. I would look at the wires coming from the bulb and find where they meet. They may have fused together above a sharp edge or even the exhaust.
