Nothing left for you to do but to visit the wreckers and buy others to replace them . Ensure that you inform the law agencies to this theft. They will probably not get them back but it adds to the data base of location ,time, method ,vehicle and this eventually will help detain the people responsible.

Reset anti thief on a 2012 hyundai santa fa. How do you fix it.

try this. its for acura but works in many cars...good luck
Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

How to change headlight on 2000 galant

  • 1
    Place the Mitsubishi on a flat service in park. Set the parking brake before continuing.

  • 2Open the Galant's hood and locate the headlight cover -- roughly 3-inch wide circular piece of plastic -- behind the headlight bulb intended for replacement. Turn this cover clockwise to unlock it and pull it from the headlight assembly, exposing the headlight socket below it.


    Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.


    Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.


    Pick up the new 9003 headlight bulb using a clean, lint-free cloth and line up its prong with the slots in the socket. Never tough the bulb with your bare hands, as the oils left by your hands can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.


    Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.


    Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.


    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed.

    9Close the Galant's hood.

    My battery was stolen out my car well when they stole it they cutt the power wire off well replaced that and i had to change the maga fuse and now everything work except the turn signals the flashers work...

    Sorry to hear about your thief... You are correct in suspecting the multi function switch or turn signal switch. If you are confident that you have all the wiring repaired under the hood.. then I believe you are looking in the right direction. Also see if you have brake lights.. this is another system when that switch fails...

    Best of Luck...

    I disconnected the battery and later reconnected it the only thing that happens is the headlights come on and the horn sounds how do i fix it

    You need the keyless entry 'key fob' that came with the car originally to disable the alarm. This is a normal function of the alarm, in the event that a thief pops your hood and disables the battery to prohibit the alarm from going off, when the power is re-applied the alarm is to sound.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    How to change headlight on 2004 Mercury

    When you open the hood you will see a cover where the hood latch is. Some covers have individual doors on each side of the hood latch. If you have that type just pop the release on the cover and reach down to the headlamp bulb. It comes out with a twist with the socket and then pull the bulb free. Use a kleenex or gloves to install new bulb and reverse the process.

    If the whole panel is one piece there are some plastic button holders to remove to lift the cover. Your headlights are underneath. In some cases the passengers side headlight may require removing the battery to access. Then just twist the socket and remove the bulb afterwards, then reverse process.
