    Hi keith davis, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Does this happen all the time, or just when you turn off the headlights AFTER turning the key to off ??

I had this same thing happen on my 2005 Forenza. All of a sudden my battery was dead. When I got it jumpstarted the headlights came on bright and would not switch to dim. They also would not turn off with the switch or any other means other than pulling the fuse under the hood. Carried it to the Suzuki dealership and found out that my car had never had the headlight harness recall fix, and there were several other recalls on them for waterpumps and something else that they fixed while I was there. If you have a Suzuki Forenza you may have a recall outstanding. But I don't know if they are even still honoring repairs now that they are out of the auto business. It's worth a check by calling the nearest Suzuki dealership.

SOURCE: headlight high beam fault

check the wirings for loose connection. Isolate and check on the wrongly switched bulb. Check also the grounding connection near the bulbs. If it has been tampered already, you need to trace the wirings either with a tester or test lamp. goodluck!

SOURCE: No low beam lights or DRL

the recall splice repair is where to start. the repair may be bad again. had a friend that had the same problem. told him to check the splice and try to get rid of the splice block. he did and the lights worked fine.

WHAT CAUSES THE TAIL LIGHTS AND DASHLIGHTS TO GO OUT ON 1983 TOYOTA TRUCK?


GOOD ADVISE--I ALSO LEARNED THAT THERE MAY BE FUSES IN UNDER THE HOOD ALSO. FOUND OUT TODAY THAT IF THE DOME LIGHT DON'T WORK THEN IT'S FUSE COULD BE BLOWN AND HINDER THE CIRCUIT TOO. I'M NOT GOOD ON VOLTAGE READING , BUT DO HAVE A TEST LIGHT. IF NO FIRE AT THE COMMON TAIL LIGT-DASH LIGHT FUSE , THEN THAT MIGHT NARROW IT DOWN. I HAD THE SAME TROUBLE IN MY 1990 FORD XLT LARIAT AND WAS BLOWING THE TAILLIGHT FUSE. IT WAS A SHORT IN THE EXTERNAL TRAILER KIT HARNESS WHICH CAUSED FUSES TO BLOW REGUARLY. WHERE IS RELAY FOR TAILIGHTS AND OTHER FUSES UNDER THE HOOD??

you have a short circuit somewhere that is causing the fuse to blow,it is most likely the headlights unless you have been messing with the dashlights,you will need to check all the headlight wiring to see if you can find the fault.......hope this helps......cheers

Low beam lights wont come on


First thing to do, is checking your fuse, then if fuse are ok, then check the relay, located under the hood by swtiching around with another relay of correct relay specs. If it works, then replace your relay, if not, check that relay if it works with another relay spot such as windows, and test the windows. If it is not the relay, then it could be your headlight lamps that is bad, check your rear tail lights to see if it comes on when you turn your headlights on, If the tail lights come on, then it is a good possibilty with the headlamps since the sorento are known to blow through head light bulb light crazy. I mean crazy. So maybe replace one side see if that would work, to really know for sure it's a headlight issue.

Electrical problem


I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
