There is a relay and 2 fuses for the head lights. When you pull the lever back the high beams come on so the low beam on both bulbs could be burned out not unusual.

1998 explorer headlights will not work unless I pull turnsignal (dimmer) switch towards me headlights go out when let go the switch


When you pull the switch to you that is flash to pass . Did you check fuse's ? There is a headlamp relay that could be bad or the dimmer switch could be bad . You can find a wiring diagram at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Use wiring diagram to test for B+ voltage at headlamp switch , dimmer switch an also check ground circuit . If you find B+ voltage going into the switch but not out , there is your problem .

Have a 91 Ford Explorer. Front headlights having issues. Good bulbs I believe. Sometimes when switching between high and low beams on the column, lights would go oput for a moment then back on....


Sounds like it has possibly got a defective multifunction switch,which is part of the turnsignal lever/high beam lever switch. Aside from physically diagnosing the circuit I would say replacing the multifunction switch may take care of your problem.


Hope this helps

When I turn on the headlights, the brakelights won't work including the turn signals. when the headlights are off, the brakelights and turnsignals work. what could the problem be?


My first thought would be a bad ground connection in the harness for the rear lights.
You might want to take a test light and check the contacts in one of the sockets.

How do you install headlight switch on 1992 camry 4 cyl. headlights dont turn on but the blinkers work and if you jiggle the switch the brights will come on but not the low beams.


You have to replace the turnsignal switch. all the exterior lights run thru it.
I believe on that model and year, you have to pull the steering wheel to remove the switch.
You will have to purchase a couple of special, but fairly cheap tools to do the job.
If your up to that then let me know and I can guide you thru it.

1998 chevy prizm when headlight switch s on head lamps dont work and if turnsignal is turned on car . stalls turnsignal flashes rapidly also but if just park lights are on car still runs and flasher is...


Seems like a huge issue huh?! First have the battery checked 2. check all connections for corrosion around battery area. I'm assuming this just started? 3. if all other things check out good, have the charging system tested for no less than 13.5 volts with all accesories on. Replace the alternator as necessary. Let me know what you find and I'll be happy to continue to advise.

I need to replave the key switch in a 1991 cavalier


First disconnect your negative battery cable. Then remove the plastic cover below your steering colum, and the covers that cover your headlight swith, turnsignal switch, ignition, ect. Remove the bolts that hold the steering colum to the dash, and allow it to lay on the drivers seat. Place a towel under the colum (to catch metal shavings), and drill out the two screws that hold the ignition in place.
Install your new ignition in reverse.

Had the same problem with the turnsignals. What happens is the ingition switch is not coming back to the proper position after stating. Just turn the key back a smidge and turn signals shoud work again.
