If you just clean the switch with contact cleaner, that will fix the problem. I had my 99 aurora's head lights came on and stayed on all the time. I bought contact cleaner 2-26 from Lowes for around 8 bucks and sprayed in the small holes in the switch and blowed with compressed air. Repetead it 2-3 times the problem was gone.

    I have a 99 aurora also, the problem you had was that the running lights stayed on? Chiming on inside when car was off and door was open accompanied by external running lights on?

I have the same problem with the headlight switch. Clicking sound when the key is not in the ignition. The headlights flash on & off at all hours, as the car sits parked. This drains down the battery and the car is hard to start. My mechanic says to replace the switch, but GM wants a thousand bucks just for thee part!

You need to replace the light switch. It is shorting in the mechanism itself not the wiring. I had the same issue. Just another GM engineering blunder

Sounds like you have a bad relay, maybe one stuck in the open position. There are several relays underneath the back seat, check your manual for details on their location. Alternatively, the plastic covers have a reference guide indicating which relay is which. Check the relay for the exterior lamps, head lights, etc. The instrument panel lights are tied into your external lights so that when your turn your exterior lights on, the interiors come on as well.

When I turn on my headlights the dash board goes black. The dimmer switch is not the issue


The dash lights are connected to the park lights. Check to see if the park lights come on. If no park lights, suspect a fuse or wiring issue. If park lights are ok, try slapping your hand on the dash area above the instrument panel to see if the lights come on/flicker. If there is a change, the instrument cluster assembly/electronics are the most likely cause of this problem

Gear shift indicator lights flicker on instrument cluster


Sometimes on the shifter its self they use two different items, some use a medal rod and some use a cable like an ebrake. if its a cable one it may have stretched and isn't going back to its actual spot for the instrument lights to work properly. you can tighten that cable.that's all I can think of right now good luck.

My instrument panel, parking lights, and taillights flicker simultaneously. they are all ran off the 'park lamp relay' on my 2002 dodge dakota. my headlights are fine. the conflict is intermittent and...


relay coil may be a bit weak and is sharing power with the headlight relay. Try swapping the relay with the horn relay or another similar one that is non-essential to operation of the car. If that doesn't work, you may have a loose wire on the headlight switch or at the relay socket.

Clicking from dash+headlights lite while parked+code P0741


The problem appears to be in the headlight switch in the multi-function arm on the left side of the steering wheel. There is also a PPL module under the dash - that is what you hear clicking. I'm just starting my research, but it appears to be common. It also looks like the switch is not an easy fix. We'll see what happens....

1998 c2500 cheyanne starting problems


First of all I would go to like Checkers, or Auto zone and let them put a battery draw down tester on your battery and check the battery.Second I would check your battery connections if the batter checks out. Also check engine grounds. You will hear noises when re-powering up. That is normal.

1996 Oldsmobile Aurora Electrical problem.


OK it sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm inside this vehicle and no remotes or siren (It was likely in the valet mode and you may have never known there was one ... as the dealerships tend to do so that they won't have to warrantee them) I would say that is why the lights are flashing and it won't start ... If I'm correct .... remove it ...
