Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Only brights work, dimly lit headlamps, no fog lamps

I just recently replaced the headlamps in my 2000 grand prix. Now the foglights will not turn on, and the "brights" dash light is dimly lit when the normal headlamps should be on. (headlamps are also very dim unless i have brights on)

    I bought the wrong headlamps. 9004 instead of 9007. I am a complete moron. I have no box, so I am stuck with them. S^#%!

Recheck the bulb number. This happens when the wrong bulb number is installed. Otherwise it could be a bad headlight ground.

Put new foglights on my 2002 hyundai elentra gls but dont know how to wire them


First of all, did the vehicle previously come with fog lamps? I'm assuming it didn't. Normally, each YM (Year/Model) Hyundai wiring harness is complete for every feature which might be included with certain trim specifications. However, you probably don't have the multi-function switch which has the 'Fog Lamp Switch' on it (Left Hand Turn & Parking/Headlamp Switches). However, the wiring for the fog lamps is probably there, you just need the multifunction switch which contains the fog lamp switch. The illustration attached shows where the wire harness plugs into the fog lamp bulb. This connector may be taped up in the wire harness out of the way (since I'm assuming the vehicle didn't originally come equipped with fog lamps).

How do i turn my fog lights on? when i turn my lights on the foglights arent lit. is there a switch(that i couldnt find) on the interior of vehicle to turn them on?


Should be a separate switch on dash for fog lamps. Depending on factory,dealer or after market installation switch can be anywhere on dash, console or overhead console.

How do i change right turn lamp in my 2004 pontiac grand prix


Answer remove the headlight assembly and the bulbs are located below the Assembly to remove headlamp assembly and access signals: -open the hood
-while pushing rearward on the headlamp,pull up half-way on the (white)plastic retaining clip on the electrical connector - align the square cut-out on the retaining clip with the notch on the headlamp
-pull the headlamp assembly straight out from the vehicle (moving the headlamp up and down slightly may help with its removal)
-locate the front turn signal,parking lamp and foglamp bulbs which are located below the headlamp assembly (turn/parking lamp on top and the fog lamp is below it)
-turn the bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove it from assembly
-pull the old bulb from the socket and replace it with a new one
-turn the bulb socket a 1/4 turn clockwise to reinstall it
-reinstall the headlamp assembly carefully so you dont scratch the paint
-push down on (white)plastic retaining clip on the electrical connector while pushing rearward on the headlamp making sure headlamp is secure.

Fog lights do not come on either when using headlights or with the fog lamp switch in my 2002 Grand Am SE. Fuse seems to be fine.


REPLACE THE FOG LAMP SWITCH DOWN ON THE STEERING COLM. REMOVE THE PROTEC. PANEL UNDER STEERING COLM. AND GENTLY START TO LOWER THE COLM. WATCH OUT FOR THE SHIFT IND. WIRE- REMOVE IT- LOWER COLM. AND HALF WAH DOWN ON THE TOP SIDE IS THE SWITCH FOR THE FOG LAMP CONTROL IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE ELEC. SWITCH - (PUSH BUTTON OR ROCKER STYLE ).IN THE DASH. IF - - LIGHTS AREON AND THE FOG LAMPS ARE TURNED ON AND THE HEAD LIGHT GO OUT OR WONT CHANGE FROM DIM TO BRIGHT REPLACE HIGH/LOW SWITCH ON COLM. SAME PROCEDURE AS FOG CONTOL SWITCH.

1999 grand am. low beams dont work. i checked all fuses and relays. ideas????


Lets start by checking the fog lamps. Turn the headlights on, switch to low beam, turn on the fog lights and see if they come on. If the foglights don't work, then you don't have voltage on the low beam circuit to the BCM. If you do have foglights, then the low beam circuit is providing voltage to the BCM.
By determining if the foglights work or don't work we will be able tell what side of the circuit we need to work on.
Let me know.

Fog lights


A detent is a "stop". The manual is telling you to pull out the switch until it stops. The rear fog lamp on my VW Polo works the same way. It may help you to know that on my VW (1) although the headlamps will come on without the engine on, the fog lamp requires the engine to be running, (2) the headlamp switch must be in the "on" position before you can pull it out to the detent position.
