You probably have a short in your lighting, or your battery is really low on juice.

    what switch.? and does it glow a fuse? and does the unsaid light work, and at full brightness, and is the battery voltage 13.3v to 15vdc running and hold there running and at "light"ON time.? if the lamp is dim and battery holds at 13.3vdc min or 12vdc not trunning then the light feed is grounded out. just. but it is not normal at all for a shorted head light (say) to kill EFI system and stall, not at all. you do have bad wiring or a bad or weak battery, it only takes 5min and a voltmeter to find this out.

Head lights? Are you sure your alternator is charging? Is the battery fully charged.

Put it on a charger for a couple of hours. Then start and turn on the lights. If it doesn't die like it did before your alternator isn't generating any power.

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 mercury cougar xr7 ? Its cause my oil pressure gauge is bouncing up and down...i dont know why...can anybody please help me thank you so much

The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate anytime the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. When the engine is running, the light also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:
If the oil pressure light does not work, perform the following:
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp lights, make sure the oil pressure switch is properly grounded in the cylinder block, and if so replace the oil pressure switch. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.
To diagnose an oil pressure light that stays on, perform the following:
  1. Check the engine oil level and top off as necessary. If the engine was 2 or more quarts low on oil, test start the engine after topping off the oil level and recheck the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on, stop the engine immediately and go to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the wire at the sending unit, then turn the ignition switch to theON position. If the light remains on, check the wire from the sending unit to the gauge for being shorted to ground and repair as necessary. If the light goes out, turn the ignition switch OFF and go to the next step.
  3. Replace the oil pressure sending switch with a known good switch.
  4. Start the engine and check the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on with the engine running, stop the engine immediately to avoid severe engine damage until the cause of the problem can be determined.

WARNING
If the oil pressure light remains on while the engine is started, stop the engine immediately. Do not operate the engine until the cause of the problem can be determined. Operating an engine with low oil pressure will cause severe internal damage.

Possible causes for an oil pressure light to stay on are:


Pinched or grounded sensor wireDefective oil pressure sending unitRestricted or severely leaking oil filterExcessive internal engine bearing clearance.Insufficient or severely contaminated engine oilBlocked oil pump pickup screen or severely worn oil pump

Engine wont turn over and no lights with key in accesory position


What about with the key in the on position -do the warning lights and gauges turn on? That would mean the ignition switch has power and can turn on.
Any theft alarm activated, immobilizing the car?
Won't turn over- you mean won't start or the starter won't spin the engine over? If it won't start, ignition spark or fuel problem. If the engine won't crank, problem is in the start circuit- from battery to starter, and from battery to ignition switch to starter. Park/neutral safety switch is in circuit between key switch and starter.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that when the engine is ON my left brake light WILL NOT light up when the brake is applied... BUT when the engine is OFF, and the brake is applied, the...


the only thing that should separate the right and left brake light is the turn signal switch i think if tis vehicle has seperate light bulbs for the turn signals and brake lights it will not involve the turn signal swicth. either way ther is a voltage loss somewhere. test with a voltmeter at the brake light switch with the engine on and off,if it is vastly deferent go back to the fuze and ceck both sides of that,then back to the ignition switch.you should probably locate a wiring diagram.if the brake light and turn signals are the same bulbs you will need to ceck the turn signal switcth.this is removeable after taking off the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and held on by two scews very small torx head scews.it is referd to as a combination switch.

Head lights stay on after engine is shut off.light switch in car is not on.tail lights aren't on just head lights


If you are turning the engine off before turning the headlights off then the headlights(only) will remain on for approximately 1-min. This feature allows you to use the headlights to get to where you want to, such as to your door with some light.
If your are turning your engine off before turning your headlights off, to turn them off - turn the headlights back on and then back off again. The headlights will turn off immediately.
However, if you are NOT turning off the engine before turning off the headlights, then this feature may be malfunctioning in the switch. To remedy this right away use the above procedure - turn back on then back off; until you can replace the malfunctioning switch.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
Again stated: these will normally turn off after 1-min.

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

Night driving head lights not turning on.


yes it could be a bulb. If you have any power going to the light then its not the fuse. the next place to look is the light switch. and the mounting bracket that the light switch plugs into. If its a newer car, then just the switch. So replace your bulb and see how it goes.
