Headlight adjustment


AIMING

The procedure outlined here is intended to provide a basic adjustment only.
  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface 25 feet (7.62 meters) from a vertical wall. There must be a horizontal reference point, such as a line on the pavement or another wall, at a right angle to the aiming wall. The fuel tank should be about 1/2 full, tire pressures must be correct and there must be a person in the driver's seat.
  2. Measure the distance from the floor to the center of each headlight. Mark these heights on the wall and draw a line between them.
  3. Measure the horizontal distance from the reference point to the center of each headlight. Make reference marks on the wall so that X marks the center of each headlight.
  4. With the headlights on low beam, the high intensity zone of the light beam should be immediately below the line and about 2 inches to the right of the center of each headlight.
  5. If adjustment is required, remove the grille and use a Phillips screwdriver to turn the adjuster screws.

Engine wants to stall when headlights are turned on ebford


Head lights draw a large quantity of power and if the alternator is not up to it then the battery has to do the job . In that case with the lights on there is not enough current left to feed the ignition system and so the motor stalls out. So have the battery load tested for a bad cell and have the alternator tested for correct out put. Check the condition and tension of the drive belt.

2. ADJUST HEADLIGHT AIM ONLY

(a) Place the vehicle in the following conditions.

 The area around the headlight is not deformed.

 The vehicle is parked on a level surface.

 Tire inflation pressure is the specified value.

 A driver is in the driver's seat and the vehicle is in a state ready for driving (with a tank full).

 The vehicle has been bounced several times.

(b) Check the headlight aiming.

(1) Prepare a thick white paper.

(2) Stand the paper perpendicular to the ground at the position 3 m (9.84 ft) away from the headlights

bulb center.

(3) Ensure that the center line of the vehicle and the paper face forms a 90-degree angle as shown

in the illustration.

(4) Draw a horizontal line (H line) on the paper, showing where the headlights should strike.

(5) Draw a vertical line (V line) at the position where the extended center line of the vehicle strikes.

(6) Draw 2 vertical lines (by connecting the low and high beam center marks) to where the both headlights

should strike (V RH and V LH lines).

(7) Draw a horizontal line (by connecting the both low beam center marks) at the position where the

headlights should strike (H RH and H LH lines).

HINT:

The H RH and H LH line is 0.4° below the horizontal line (H line) of the light axis.

(8) Start the engine.

(9) Turn the headlights ON.

(10) Check that the headlights properly strike the position shown in the illustration.

1989 Cadillac Sedan De Ville engine stalls when air is turned on...tries to take off when stopped at stoplight..sometimes dies while driving..


It sounds like the idle compensation circuit for the engine is dirty or faulty. Have your car checked at a shop. have them check the idle air motor for dirt or malfunction. It could be that it only needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The compensation circuit adjusts the idle/slow speed of the engine. The air conditioner puts a load on the engine and this circuit adjusts the engine speed to compensate. Also, when the car is cold this circuit adjusts the idle speed to prevent stalling and help the engine warm up faster. I hope this information helps you.

When i turn headlights on engine dies on 95 lexus sc400


Is the battery fully charged?

The alternator may be bad. If the headlights reduce the voltage to the computer and ignition system, the car will stall.

I would check this first.

Good luck on this one.
