This works for a ford taurus so I thought I would put my 2 cents worth in. Sometimes the Hazard button plays havoc with the lighting system. If there is a hazard button on the steering shaft, try putting a toothpick to wedge the button one way or the other. A jiggling button will cause the same system if the connectors to the lights are tight and the grounds are good. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Headlights blink off while driving

Change the headlight switch they are most likely burnt, hence the connection makes and breaks when they get hot.

SOURCE: The dome lights and headlights blink off and on. I

If both the headlights and dome light are affected i would suspect the haedlight switch. That is the part that would be linked to both issue. Door jam switchs would affect the dome light but not the headlights.

SOURCE: brake lights stop working when you turn on

Either the headlight switch if defective, you have a short in the circuit or flasher relay is defective.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on


Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?


If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

I have a 2003 chevy cavalier. headlight issue


The blinking light is telling you that you have a headlight out, if you look the service light should be coming on when the light stops blinking.
Replace the head light and all should be fine.

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.

2002 Impala, headlights work however they blink


This may be the start of a worse problem that the Impala eventually developes. The Body Control Module has a design flaw along with the Passlock anti-theft system. You may get away with just replacing the BCM for now. It needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer and the car will not start if you replace the BCM without reprogramming it. I would also recommend against replacing it with a remanufactured one. Repair cost is going to be around $500 at the dealer.

If the Passlock system is also at fault, add another $500 for a new ignition switch and cylinder. If you haven't experienced random starting problems yet, they are coming soon. When you turn the key, nothing happens. I thought my 2002 Impala may have been immune to these problems that I've heard about constantly, however, at 90,000 miles, it became "possessed". The symptoms started slowly and got worse. Beside the interior lights flashing like strobs in the middle of the night (while the car was not running), the headlights would occasionally click off and on a few times while I was driving at night.

The relay switch you hear clicking is the Battery Rundown Protection relay. I'm suprised your battery hasn't drained to the point where the car will not start in the morning.

Hello moblind, you might look into the fuses, it sounds like one of them is blown,..
or a bad connection somewhere.
