Highbeam work lowbeams done fuses and relay good what next


What is year--make--model of vehicle? Right now, I'd say, check the wiring circuit to and from dimmer switch. Could be dimmer switch, itself?

With wiring diagram, you can find proper color wire from steering column to low beam, everything on, see if voltage on that wire. I'm speculating that the dimmer switch controls voltage to low beam and not ground.

Under the dash, find wiring harness that goes into steering column, find proper color wire, test. If no voltage, when there should be, I think the problem is in the steering column, either wiring circuit or dimmer switch.

Would the clock spring stop the running lights and low beam head lights from working in a 2003 gmc envoy


Yeah, anything in your steering column can cause problems. I haven't looked at a wiring diagram for your vehicle. Is your headlamp switch and dimmer part of the same switch or different locations?

Usually if I think the problem is in the steering column, I get at the wire harness under the dash where it goes into the steering column, Find proper color wire for what I'm trying to check, voltage or ground on whatever circuit. If headlamp switch is located separately from dimmer, then have to check voltage to and from steering column on proper color wires.

I don't like drl lamps at all, just my opinion. Especially auto lamps that you can't turn off, unless you pull a fuse.

I have a 91 jeep cherokee limited. when i first bought it the bolts in the steering colomb to the tilt were loose. so i had a buddie tighten em up for me. well he pinched a wire in there and my tail...


Not very likely the whole vehicle would need to be rewired. But you'd pretty much have to strip down the steering column to find everything and to check the tilt apparatus for worn parts. I would check the price of a steering column for your Jeep from a salvage yard and then decide how to go- at full steam ahead. Good luck, Chris.

My 2001 chevy silverado's low beams don't work. I


The wiring for the low beams would run not to the ignition, but to the dimmer switch. I don't know what color they are, but sounds like you are at the source of the problem, if the low beams quit when the column is let down. Pull the trim pieces off the steering column and examine the wires going to the dimmer switch. You may see some wiring insulation scraped off. It could be a bad dimmer switch, but check the wiring first.
Good luck.

1986 volkswagen windshield wipers will not turn off?


look for signs of a windshield leaking water into fuse/relay box- located near pedals under dash. Also remove small plastic trim below steering wheel ( 2 screws) and unplug black connector with 6 or 8 wires directly under steering column. Turn key on if wipers are stopped then your switch is bad- steering wheel must be removed to change switch.

I have an 86 mustang 5.0 .When I turn the key to the on position, the warning lights in dash do not cycle as they should.I replaced the ignition cylinder, no such luck... Any ideas out there????


If your fuses are good, and no loose wires, try the ignition switch, not lock cylinder, the ignition switch is located on the steering column about two-three inches away from the ignition lock cylinder towards the dash on the steering column.

Engine compartment wiring diagram for a 88 cj7 jeep v8


The last Cj-7 was built in 1986. And they didn't come factory with a V-8 so you have a conversion of some type. Most factory wiring diagrams aren't going to help much. Sorry
