SOURCE: 98 Suburban Brake and hazard lights don't work

Check for power and ground at the two panel lights. GM uses a cheep circuit board design, they overheat and corrode on the other side of the board. not serviceable.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

SOURCE: 98 saturn sl1 won't start

I have a 98 Saturn SL1 from time to time it would not start, it wouldn't even try. I knew the battery was good. It turned out to be the cranshaft position sensor.

1993 Suburban dies when you turn on headlights


In most 1993 Chevy Subrubans the headlights do not have an automatic option. It is possible to get this feature installed but factor settings do not have this option installed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Tail lights. Or brake lights(when the headlights are on). HELP!!!


I think you have a bad ground at the back on both rear lights or their earth out on the same connection but these american cars use a funny system where the stop lights are the indicators and not a seperate yellow light like europeon motors ,Now these brake light switches also allow the indicators to work by shutting off the feed to the stop light so it flashes with indicators ,Why american cars use this system i dont know as its so complicated for the stop light switch function but try the ground or earth wire on the back lights and if no joy then ask a american mechanic with experiance of this sort of circuitry as when i get american cars for import i have to fit new back lights and disconnect the brake light switch .

When i turn headlights on engine dies on 95 lexus sc400


Is the battery fully charged?

The alternator may be bad. If the headlights reduce the voltage to the computer and ignition system, the car will stall.

I would check this first.

Good luck on this one.

look for loosen battery wires, corrosion in them. check ground wire all the way to the engine block make sure its connected right and check ground to the body of your vehicle.

1995 Saturn SL2 stalls


Very likely (again) a failed alternator.
I owned this exact same year and model (bought new) and during its 57,600 mile 'lifetime,' the alternator was replaced SIX (6) times, the auto tranny repaired at 29,000 (on my wallet), front discs ground once (warranty), replaced once (my wallet) and it finally died on starting by dropping a rod cap and dumping oil all over a parking lot.
Each time the alternator died, I had similar symptoms to yours and once the ABS locked up because of low voltage and I had to floor the gas to get the piece of junk out of a busy intersection and into a parking lot.  
The alternator is too small for its rating (1200 watts and a theoretical efficiency of max 50%) so consequently runs very hot and does not get any cooling because of its mounting area.
It was my first American car in 37 years and the last one I will ever buy.
