Question about 1984 Toyota Starlet

Identifying a vehicle from its headlight

Hello, I am studying to be a privata investigator. I have found some of the remains of a headlight at an accident. There is not enough to assemble the whole headlight, but there is enough to show a serial number. Does anyone know of websites that could be searched to solve this problem? We have: a double-ended arrow. Then below it 7R01-7407 . Also on another fragment, 'A', below that a circle with a large capital 'E' and a '1' .(In the circle.). On another at an angle is 305-13. The material is glass,not polycarbonate.I am in New Zealand so it is unlikely to be an American car. Thanks. I had to enter a 'car' to get the message away!

Not sure that there is a website like you are after, if there is seems like it would be something to serve the needs of law enforcement community and would doubt that they would let just anybody use it. i do however have a suggestion, would not waste your time replying if i didn't. i can tell you how i would go about this but things may be different in nz. if you have salvage yards (junk yards) think i would start there. if you take your fragments, in a freezer bag or something like that to protect them from further degradation and yet allow them to be examined, to a junkyard and talk to the counter people, you don't have to tell them all you know, just that you want to know what kind of car it's from, tell them it's a research project from school or something. they may identify it right off, or they may let you wander around the yard and see if you can match it up to something. near where i live some yards will and some won't, and some people at some yards will and some won't. it's sort of hit or miss. anyway that's a possibility, apart from that you might have some luck at dealerships or collision repair places, differences between one make of car headlight assembly and another may seem subtle but the people who just work on stuff like that all the time can tell them apart on sight. hope that helps

Headlights not working on 04 trailblazer ext. Fuses ok, any suggestions?

Perhaps both bulbs have failed - it has happened many times before.
Perhaps a failed relay, headlamp switch, dipswitch, connections or wiring.

By 04 the switching operations in many vehicles was being done by digital electronics (in the name of progress). This amounts to local black boxes taking instruction from the dashboard switches or other black boxes.

The circuits are different from the traditional ones and so, when chasing a fault it is important to study the wiring diagram first.

Headlights stay on when 2005 gmc envoy xl is off

Hello David..some GM vehicles have a feature called Twilight Sentinel which provides a couple of minutes of "headlight on" time after turning the vehicle off. (Check your owners manual for this features operating instructions.)

If your headlights never turn off, the failure is most likely in the headlight switch as headlights are wired hot...meaning you can turn them on without the key in ignition.

NEWS: Feds Step Up Probe of Chevy Aveo Stuck Throttle

Ice formation in engine can cause problems -- February 19, 2008 -- Federal safety regulators are stepping up an investigation of the vehicle speed control system in 2004 and 2005 Chevrolet Aveos.

The Office of Defect Investigations (ODI) which is part of the National Highway traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has upgraded its evaluation of complaints which began October 19, 2007 about stuck throttles in the Aveo because of "ice formation within the engine air intact tract."

The change, according to ODI, follows a safety recall by General Motors "involving substantially similar vehicles manufactured for sale in Canada."

GM, according to the federal safety group twice revised the Canadian recall "to include more substantial changes to the throttle body, intake manifold, positive crankcase ventilation and engine cooling systems to further reduce air intake tract."

After receiving 28 complaints of a stuck throttle in vehicles in the U.S. along with 46 warranty claims affecting 63 vehicles," investigators suspect the defect occurs in the winter when the temperature is below freezing.

Information provided to ODI by GM does not include events involving stuck throttles during the "most recent winter months" so the investigation will be intensified to "further study the frequency of the alleged defect," according to ODI.

An engineering analysis is often the last step before a NHTSA-mandated recall.
