Some nissans have points in the switch that get moisture in them causing the points not to make contact.You would have to take the switch apart and clean the points with sand paper,if you are not mechanically inclined let a tech do this or change the switch

SOURCE: Turn signals dont work headlights dont dim heater fan doesnt work

Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.

SOURCE: clutch not primming in r32 skyline

You either have air in the system or a faulty master cylinder.

Check fluid is being delivered from the master cyl. by slackening off the hydraulic line connection at the master cylinder while depressing pedal.
Until fluid is able to be delivered from the master cyl. itself you have no hope of bleeding the rest of the system.

As with all hydraulic bleeding processes, only release the fluid line when the pedal is being pushed slowly down or held down against the return spring pressure of the clutch pressure plate - re-tighten it on the upward stroke of the pedal to stop it drawing air back into the system.

If you are confident that there is fluid delivery from the master cyl. move to the clutch slave cylinder.

Again only open the bleeder valve when the pedal is being pushed slowly down (i.e. the hydraulic system is pressurised).

(If you keep the master cylinder full of hydraulic fluid, sometimes gravity will cause the line to 'self bleed' if the bleed nipple is left slightly open for several minutes at the start of the bleed process).
When fluid appears, finish the slave cylinder air bleed in the normal way.

If you have the time to spare, I have often found that provided the master cylinder is kept full, leaving the system overnight will allow a lot of the air to leave the system (gravity helps).

SOURCE: no headlights

You need to start by checking the fuse for your headlights (low beams). The DRL could be be bad, but I have not seen them go out very often.

2000. Where is fuse for tail lights?


Do your headlamps work ?
Park/Marker/License/Tail Lamps
Voltage is applied to the turn/headlamp switch at all times. When the turn/headlamp switch is in the PARK or the HEAD position, voltage is applied to the following components:
?€¢
The park lamps


?€¢
The marker lamps


?€¢
The tail lamps


?€¢
The license lamp

The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
The automatic lamp control function turns on the park lamps and the headlamps. This action occurs when the ambient light sensor determines that the exterior lamps should be turned ON based on the amount of available light. When the BCM grounds the park lamp relay, voltage is supplied directly to the park lamps, bypassing the turn/headlamp switch assembly. When this action occurs, the following conditions exist:
?€¢
The automatic lamp control relay is grounded.


?€¢
The headlamps turn ON. Refer to Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description .

The lamps turn OFF when the BCM does not ground the park lamp relay or the automatic lamp control relay. This action is caused by the following conditions:
?€¢
The available light reaches a predetermined level.


?€¢
The ignition switch is turned to the OFF position

Why wont the headights or running lights work on my 2002 Buick LaSabre?


There are several reasons why your headlamps an running lights don't work , the headlamp switch is a good one ,plus relays an the DIM - dash integrated module an associated wiring ! Here is how the headlamps work , right out of Buick factory service info !
The dash integration module (DIM) provides battery positive voltage to the signal circuits of the headlamp switch. The signal circuits include the headlamp switch headlamps on signal, the flash to pass switch signal and the high beam input. With the headlamp switch in the ON position, a ground path is available for the headlamp switch headlamps on signal circuit of the DIM through the headlamp switch. The DIM provides ground to either the headlamps high beam relay control circuit or the headlamps low beam relay control circuit of the low beam circuit. The position of the headlamp dimmer switch determines which relay control circuit has ground. The DIM supplies battery positive voltage to the relay control circuits, if the headlamps are necessary. The fuse block - underhood supplies battery positive voltage to both relay switch circuits. When the low beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both low beam fuses and to the low beam headlamps. The headlamps have ground at G103 and at G401. When the headlamp high beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both high beam fuses and to the high beam headlamps. The high beam circuit is divided into a left and right side circuit. The current flow of the left high beam is from the fuse to the left high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flows to the normally-closed contact of the DRL relay to G103. The current flow of the right high beam is from the fuse to the right high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flow is to ground at G401. When the headlamp dimmer switch lever is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes. This grounds the DIM flash to pass switch signal circuit. In response to this input, the DIM energizes the HDLP HI BM relay. Both high beams remain on until the driver releases the switch handle. If the low beam headlamps were on during a flash to pass operation, the low beams remain on. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the headlamp dimmer switch lever.
By running lights , do you mean park lamps or day time running lamps ?
Park, Tail, License and Marker Lamps
The park lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or ON position or anytime the headlights are requested. The fuse block - rear supplies battery positive voltage to the switch contacts of the Park LP relay. When the headlamp switch is in PARK or in ON, the park lamp switch on signal circuit of the DIM has a ground path. The DIM provides battery positive voltage to the control circuit of the Park LP relay. When the park lamps and/or the tail lamps are ON, the DIM energizes the park lamp relay control circuit. This closes the switch contacts. Current flows from the Park LP relay to the LH PARK LP and the RH PARK LP fuses. From the fuse, the current flows to the park lamps. The left park lamps are grounded at G103, G401 and G402. The right park lamps and the right tail lamps are grounded at G103 and G401. The DIMR fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the license lamps and to the DIM instrument panel lamp fuse supply voltage - 1 circuit, for interior lamps dimming. The license lamps are grounded at G401.
The best advice I can give is that you take this to a ASE certified professional repair facility unless your a qualified automotive electric repair person !
Diagnostic Starting Point - Lighting Systems
Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Lighting Systems . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

Why doesn't my speedometer/odometer, horn and headlights work?


Which insturment cluster does your's have ? electronic instrument cluster or standard instrument cluster !

Standard insturment cluster - speedo / odometer
Speedometer/Odometer
The speedometer and odometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
Could be the VSS is bad .
Horn The horn system includes the following:
  • horn relay
  • horn
  • clock spring
  • steering wheel control switch harness
  • steering wheel pad horn switch, which is part of the driver side air bag module. For additional information, refer to Section 501-20B .
The horn is located behind the front bumper mounted to the radiator support.

Is the air bag light lit on the insturment cluster ? If it is the clock spring could be the problem . If not lit check the circuits from the horn relay .

VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis .

Which headlamps don't work ? Low beams , high beams , both ?
  • The high beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
  • The low beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Headlamp switch.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • LCM.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
Headlamp System The headlamp system consists of:
  • two aerodynamic halogen headlamp bulbs and retainers
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • lighting control module (LCM)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
In normal operation:
  • With the multifunction switch in the low beam position, power is supplied by the LCM to the low beam elements through the multifunction switch.
  • With the multifunction switch in the high beam position (forward detent), power is supplied to the high beam elements and to the high beam indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • When the multifunction switch is pulled toward the steering wheel, the flash-to-pass switch (part of the multifunction switch) is closed and power is supplied to the high beam elements. When the switch is released, they return to low beam operation.
  • The battery saver feature of the LCM will automatically turn off the courtesy lamps, demand lamps, headlamps, or parking lamps under the following conditions:
    • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
    • The headlamp switch is in parking lamps ON or headlamps ON positions.
    • After 10 minutes.
Headlamp Switch The headlamp switch is a multi-position switch.
  • The positions include OFF, PARK, and HEAD.
  • With the headlamp switch in the PARK position (first detent), a signal is supplied to the LCM which powers the front parking lamps, the tail lamps, the side marker lamps, and the license lamp.
  • With the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, power is supplied to the headlamps through the LCM and the multifunction switch.
  • The panel dim switch (part of the headlamp switch) is located above the headlamp switch. The panel dim switch operates only with the parking lamps or headlamps on.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the up position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively brighten.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the down position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively dim.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-00 .
Headlamps On Warning Chime If the headlamp switch is left in either the PARK or HEAD position and the driver door is opened, the LCM will sound a headlamps on reminder chime when the following conditions occur:
  • The ignition switch is OFF with the ignition key out.
  • The driver door is ajar.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-09 .

Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

On 97 dodge 1500 I cannot get dome or cargo lights to work with headlight switch and already tried another switch...dome lights come on when I open the door though


This means that the dome light is getting power and grounded by the jam switch. by turning the headlamp switch it has a detent position once there this should ground the dome light if it doesnot work the grounding wire from switch to body is loose or broken.

The instrument cluster controls the headlamp systems that include daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity when all of the following conditions apply:
• The engine is running.
• The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
• The normal headlamps are not on.
The instrument cluster turns the DRL system on by grounding CKT 592, thereby energizing the DRL relay. This action allows a reduced voltage of 6 volts to flow across the headlamps. If the vehicle has the optional fog lamps, the fog lamp relay will also be energized. The park lamps will turn on and the fog lamps will operate normally. When the headlamp switch is turned to the ON position, the instrument cluster allows normal headlamp operation.
The instrument cluster also has an input from the park brake. If the park brake is in the ON position, the DRL will remain disabled until the park brake is placed in the OFF position. On vehicles with an automatic transaxle, the instrument cluster will disable the DRL until the transaxle has been taken out of the PARK position.
Headlamps
A rocker type switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel (IP). The rocker type switch controls the headlamps. One switch position turns on the following lamps:
• The parking lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The taillamps
• The license plate lamp
• The IP lamps
• The interior lamps
The second switch position turns on the headlamps in addition to all of the above lamps.
An IP lamp dimmer control is provided in order to vary the intensity of the IP lamps. Turn the control past the full bright detent in order to turn on the courtesy lamps.
The under hood lamp is designed to turn on under the following conditions:
• When the hood is raised
• When the parking or headlamp switch is on

You probably have a open circuit in the wiring for the passanger high beam .

Your best bet would be to have a qualified repair shop check it out . May have a broken wire somewhere in the wiring harness .

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.
