This may be a faulty overload switch for the lights ( automatic resetting thermal switch). Check the system for shorts and correct size bulbs or faulty lighting module . IT appears that the current draw for the lights is exceeding the thermal switch capacity and that is why the lights are going off and then back on after the switch cools down.

2000 ford f250, four wheel switch locked in in cab, no front wheel drive, lock in both front wheel hubs and now have 4 wheel drive. Flip off switch inside and no longer in 4 wheel drive.


I really don't know quite how to tell you this. Everything seems to be working just fine buy your question. When your using 4 wheel drive, you engage the hubs first, then push the 4 wheel drive button or turn the switch. Ease it in and out of gear or shift on the move and you should be in 4 wheel drive at this point. To take it out of 4 wheel drive, reverse this procedure. Turn the switch off and ease forward and you will be out of 4 wheel drive. If your not going to use your 4x4, turn the hubs out to reduce ware on the axles. If you will be using 4x4 again soon, leave the hubs in and all you have to do is turn the switch to 4x4 and your set to go. I hope I explained this well enough. Good luck.

Can the headlights be adjusted in 2013 Camry


Yes they should be adjustable because people change tyre profiles front to rear and this alters the drive angle.The adjustment screws are in the headlamp housing behind lamps accessed from the hood/ bonnet side.you do need to do this properly so they align together at the legal height for full beam.there is plenty of online information on the correct height for full beam...once you have made sure all Your tyres are at the right pressure....park on level ground ...at least 3 meters from front of a wall ....and at right angles to the wall....measure the height to the centre of headlight to ground .......mark the right light horizontal line for correct height on the wall and make sure you put lights on full beam....they should shine slightly below (say an inch )to the marked the measurement of height of lamp on the vehicle....adjust until the right hand light horizon is an inch below...now mark vertical line to cross centre of reflected light....this will give you a register point to mark where the left light should fall ...this will be exact distance apart as on vehicle and again adjust left until it falls below 1inch of the measured height line of lamp on car......mark distance from right to left light and mark the same height in chalk....then adjust left light to pinpoint marked chalk cross.adjust the beams by turning the spring loaded screws behind the lights.once you are happy check dipped positions....on right hand drive the lights should dip below and left.left hand drive dip below and right.you probably didn't need so much info but ...hey it's free and it saves any misunderstanding.hope this is of help...please vote.thankyou.

My left flasher stopped working suddently


If the right flasher is working and the left flasher is not, that should be a burned out light bulb, either front or rear. (outside)
If you will wait until it is dark, it is easier to diagnose.
After dark, turn on the right turn signal, then look carefully at the brightness of the front and the brightness of the rear turn signal. Now, turn on the left, and again observe the brightness of each. One of the bulbs should be out, or not as bright as the other side. That is the bulb you will need to replace.

How to tell if yoour Jimmy is in 4wd


You will have to look under the vehicle to see if there is a driveshaft running out from the transmission, towards the front of the truck, to the front axle. If no front drive shaft, then no 4WD.

When i have my truck in 4 wheel drive and turn sharp it kinda bounces but when i have it in 2 it doesn't do that and i just want to know why....


The front differential/drive train have no way to slip in four wheel drive. When you make a tight turn the the front wheels travel a different distance than the rear wheels. on snow, ice, mud, or other off road conditions this isn't a problem because there is less friction for the tires and they just slip a little without much indication they are doing so. On dry pavement they cannot slip and cause the front drive train to bind up and eventually hop.

By the way that is not very good for the 4X4 drive train in general so unless you driving a straight line on dry pavement I wouldn't recommend using the 4x4.

In two wheel drive the front drive drain can move independent of the rear drive train so tight turns are not a problem.
