SOURCE: 2003 Impala Brake lights dont work

The brake lights are routed through the signal light switch.
Looks like that will be the next switch to replace and the problem.

SOURCE: break lights

Check the break light switch, it's under the dash on the brake pedal, it's made of plastic and screws in you will find the plasitc threads stripped it will have 2 or 3 wires running to the switch. It will have a half inch lock nut that holds it in place. Hope this helps.

Corolla 2006- both driving headlights dont work,dims work. brights work if lever is pulled back, bulbs have been tested .wiring appears to be fine . all other lights,indicators are fine. car is drive


as positioning the lever in certain positions allows the lights to work then the problem will most likely be in the light switch itself. Replace the light switch unit.

If i was to change headlight globes from 55 watt low/65 watt high to xenon halogen 90 watt low/100 watt high is there any problems


Most OE factory wiring is marginal as far as amperage carrying capability goes. They installed wiring fine for the stock bulbs and switch. A lot of vehicles send power to the lights..head and running...through the light switch on the dash. This causes it's own problems as switches are the weak link in the lighting system.

If you run 100watt bulbs you will need to power the bulbs via a 40 amp relay switched by the light switch so the switch does not carry the amperage load through it's contacts.

Doing so will reduce the voltage drop to the bulbs as a 2 volt drop will cause the bulbs to be only 75% as bright as they would be with the full 13.5 volt running voltage..

You run a fused wire from the battery or power distribution block to the relay that should be mounted within 6 inches of the closest h/l bulb. Then from the relay to the head light bulb/s. The front and rear running lamps can remain as factory as they are low amperage draw and original light switch will work because you now no longer run power to the h/lamps through the switch.

Search the www for schematics for relay switched lamps.

My high beams will go on but not the low beams. How do i fix?


if the indicator light on your dash appears to be working, you probably just need new bulbs. No, they didn't both burn out at once. You probably drove a while with one headlight and didn't know it. If the indicator light doesn't come on and off, you will need a new dimmer switch, but since they work on bright, I am assuming that works.

My 2003 Chevrolet Impala has a problem with the headlights. bright lights work dim lights do not work. the light bulbs seem to be fine.


If you are 100% sure the lights are ok, it's going to either be the headlamp relay or the high/low switch. I'd swap a bulb for a new one before moving on to more troubleshooting.

Hope this helps.

Both headlights went out same time . bulbs are good . fuses are good. back lights work and high beam works too. what else can it be? and is this common with these cars . 1998 acura 2.5 tl year is 1998 not...


Test the leads to the bulbs while the low beams are on and then when the brights are on. If you have good bulbs & fuses with no power on low, the problem is most likely the bright/dim switch.
Not exactly sure of the Acura layout, but the covers over the steering shaft should remove with several screws to allow access to the switch (usually the turn signals are also the bright/dim switch) Test the leads out to the headlights from the bright/dim switch, that will tell you if the switch is bad.
Airbags are closely involved with this removal/replacement, it is NOT recommended for a amatuer to undertake.
