Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue

Automatic headlight dont come on at night

I got a jump start about a week ago and now the automatic headlights wont come on when starting the car at night or in a garage. headlights work when you manually switch them on. Is this possibly a fuse and if so , where do I find the fuse in the fusebox for replacement.

Thanks

It turns out that I had the twilight/sentinel slider all the way to the left , which stopped the lights from coming on automatically. Thank god for this forum because I saw someone mention this silder in another thread and it made me go check the position of mine. I'm sure if I would have taken this to a shop , as I was intending on doing , they would have slid the switch over and charged me for some bogues repair.

So , once again , is well with me , my lights and my BPA

Thanks!

Is your car somewhere where you can sit in the car and see the headlight beams? Put the headlights on and turn the key. If the headlights go dim like a glow worm, your battery is flat.

That can be caused by a few things.
Something electrical left on in the car. Charge it up, or get a jump.
Faulty battery. New one.
Worn out battery, they last 5 years. New one.

You say it worked 2 weeks ago? That makes me believe that your battery is flat and worn out. For a few quid, you can get a battery charger at Halfords, and if you are going to be leaving the vehicle for extended periods, you might like to invest in a battery maintainer. These connect to the battery and provide a small tickle charge to keep the battery topped up. They use little power.

If the headlights stay bright, then the solenoid or starter is at fault. You will need one or the other replaced.

2000 ford explorer battery wont stay charged and when it starts the headlights come on and i cant make them change turning the control knob


the headlights work on a light sensor so they come on automatic at night and are on as daytime running lights durring the day. battery is most likely dead. take to local parts store they will bench test the batt for free to tell you if its toast. I think its time for a new one.

I would start with my terminals first and check your ground straps that go from the motor to the firewal etc. dodges are bad about ground wires messing up and that causes all kinds of wierd things to happen with these rigs. if the battery they put in wasn't charged all the way it will take a while for the gauge to raise to normal.

Wont start


Could be an electrical problem. Clean your battery connections. Sounds like you are not getting voltage to the ignition coil. Check fuses. Check if horn, wipers, turn signals are working. Try this test: turn on headlights and then turn ignition key to start. The headlights should dim if the starter solenoid is engaging. You did not mention if it is manual or automatic transmission but most cars have an interlock switch that prevents the car from starting if it is in gear.

Headlight


This is normal operation. The XL-7 has daytime running lights and automatic headlight controls. You can keep headlights off when starting by applying the handbrake. If / when the daylight sensor on the dash determines it is evening and turns on the headlights, they will come on regardless of the handbrake position; and obviously, if you want to move the car, you have to release the handbrake (and headlights come one).
