Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

No low/high beams and trans slips once in a while

I have an 04 Monte Carlo SS 3.8 series II auto w/OD. Problem is that when I started the car to go home from work no lights came on. I have them set for auto on. When they did not come on I pulled the switrch out and still no lights. The only way I had lights was to hold the dimmer switch in high beam. My fog lights will come on and my marker lights work. I have gone through the fuses on both sides of the dash and under hood. I did find a broken wire on the parking brake pedal and figured that is why my indicator is not coming on on the dash.

Every once in a while the trans will slip?? when I start to move mostly when the car is cold.

Help any way you can, specially whit the lights.

As far as the tranny i would replaced fluid and filter and add a bottle of lucas transmission fix see if that helps as for the lights check the bulbs just to make sure one of the philiments isnt burn out if the bulbs are good i would have to say it is in your switch remeber if you touch the headlight bulbs wipe them off good before you turn them on or the will blow out

Sounds strange but make sure your low beam bulbs are good [ they have an average life span- they may have both burnt out at the same time ]. This happened to me once in the 1980's with a VW rabbit.

hi, this is a common problem the only way you can solve this is to get the switched replaced, this is a faulty part on your car so your going to need to get it replaced, once its replaced you will have no problems turning the lights on and off when you need to.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this post as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks

My headlights on my 2000 monte carlo does not work

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.
