    How old it the battery? Are the battery terminals tightly secured and free of corrosion? Anothe possible cause could be alternator. If it is an ignition switch issue, usually there is a strange issue with the vent airflow. Like, when you turn it on low-medium it barely comes out but then when u put it on the next setting it.is extreme

SOURCE: My 98 golf won t start intermittently. I replaced

If you run a push button directly from the battery to the solenoid, the engine will crank when you push the button.

If the no start condition is because of the solenoid, this will not fix the issue.

If the no start condition is related to circuitry of the ignition system and/or fuel system, this may fix the issue, but may not, as well.

How do I fix a problem with not having any head or tail-lights


Two possibilities. The head light switch or the turn signal switch. All the exterior lights run threw the turn signal switch. I am assuming you already checked fuses.

Have head and brake lights, no tail or dash lights.


A simple 12v test light will track this problem down.(Unless someone has been butchering the wiring,it's probably a bad headlight switch).

I have a 97 nissan pickup and the head lights will not turn on, an the tail lights will not shut off. had to take fuse out to turn off tail lights. turn signal switch??


Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

Subaru outback wagon tail light not working off


There are several components of your 1997 Subaru Outback that can cause your tail lights to stop functioning correctly. To help pinpoint the cause of the problem, it would be very helpful to also check your front marker lights. If the marker lights are working, then we know that the problem is not the headlamp switch or the tail and illumination relay (located in the fuse and relay box).

The components to check are:

> Fuse #23 (20 Amp) in the Main Fuse Box.
> Fuse #5 (10 Amp) in the Fuse and Relay Box
> Tail And Illumination Relay
> Headlamp Switch

1999 2500 chevy suburban parking lights, dash and taillights will not turn on but headlights and turn signals still work.. I have checked fuses and found nothing wrong??? could it be the head lamp...


The tail lights run through the headlight switch, they also run through the combination switch(turn signals) that is a known issue for those trucks try messing with the hazard light switch and see if the start functioning, also if you have a tow package the lights have seconday fuses and relay in the electrical box under the hood
