SOURCE: 1999 chevy silverado 4.8 1500 will star but not idle

Could be as simple as your fuel filter...after the truck starts..can you keep it runing by gunning the motor?

If you can feather the accelerator to keep the motor runing, I'd start at the filter, and then check the fuel pump

SOURCE: 2004 chevy impala no headlights

there's a button on the right side of the steering wheel that says serv push that button. It's put right there for when they use them as police cars you can cut the headlights off. You will probably notice that dash lights are on.

SOURCE: HID fog light

I would say that this person bought true HID bulbs only (Some HID BULBS are a direct fit IN A LOT OF FOGLAMP BULBS)

So they think they are getting a "Deal", as they are just paying for & getting just HID Bulbs & not the entire HID Kit so there is NO wiring and MORE IMPORTANTLY, they are not getting the matching Ballasts. The original person above hopefully BY NOW (The Original Post was over a year ago) This is both the buyers AND MORE AT FAULT here in my opinion, is the original SELLER IS AT FAULT, as they should have inquired if they are just needing replacement HID Bulbs, PLUS THEY ALSO KNEW THAT 05 CHEVYS DID NOT HAVE HID'S FROM THE FACTORY & they SHOULD HAVE EXPLAINED to the original buyer, that they NEEDED THE WHOLE HID RETRO-FIT KIT, with EVERYTHING NEEDED, I Place a much smaller blame the buyer, only they saw the words "Replacement HID Bulbs & JUMPED ALL OVER IT & only knew that HIDS were brighter than standard halogen, due to the DRASTIC PRICE Difference in the cost of only the HID Bulbs & also saw the MUCH LARGER PRICE of the ENTIRE KIT. THE ORININAL SELLER SHOULD HAVE CAUGHT THIS IMMEDIATELY when this person ordered ONLY the HID BULBS & NOT THE WHOLE retro-fit kit, like I said, they knew that the HIDS were NOT ON 05' SILVERADOS FROM GM......................... Just my 2 cents worth.....

Silverado fog lights not working


use a volt meter to see if the lights are getting power to the bulb sockets
and sometimes if you touch the bulbs the oil on your fingers will cause them to burn out if you touch the bulbs always wipe them clean before you turn them on

How can i trace a short in my 1998 mercedes e320


check remote batteries for replacement. they may be dead as for the door locks and trunk. as for the fog light, parking brakes situation a short would make them not work. not stay on. the electrical would be fused for that. a short prevents electric from getting to the load or device. i would not think that fog lights would be linked to parking brakes. did you mean parking brake light? the fog lights should be on a switch by themselves or connected to main headlamps

With the switch in sidelight or dip

position, pull the switch to its first

position to turn on the front fog lights.

Pushing the switch in or turning it to OFF
or AUTO will turn off the front fog lights (this is for the front)


With the switch in any position except

OFF or AUTO, pull the switch to its

second position to turn on the rear fog

Day lights dont turn on


Check fuse labeled DRL/FOG. Also, check that parking brake switch is working properly. If the parking brake is set, the daytime lamps won't turn on. Look at instrument panel, is red (P) light on?

My fog lights are not working, the relay is fine but not sure where the fuse is? Don't want to buy a service manual for this one simple thing. It does not tell you in the manual.


I have a 2004 f150 xlt triton. I couldn't figure out the how to turn on the fog lamps and the manual was not helpful.

Solution: turn the light switch all the way to the right and pull the switch (out) towards you. Push switch in and it turns off. The manual says to turn switch all the way to right but doesn't say to pull switch out.

Fog lights will not turn off on 2002 Jeep Wrangle Sahara


Or you could just pull out the relay under the hood, it's marked fog lights, pull the relay out. If your hi beam indicator is flashing with your fog lights on them selves. Could be the multi function switch. That controls turn signals, headlights, fog, I have seen many of those go bad.

Where are the fog lights located on the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado


Are you trying to replace the bulbs for the fog light ?

Lights


FROM: Lusty Kid:

Your fog lights should not work with high beam... they should work with the low beams. they are connected wrong, which probably drew too much current through the light switch burning out the contact points for the parking lights in the switch

Start by Fixing the fog light connections to work with low beams. Appears to me this was not factory installed. Aftermarket kit maybe! Then see if your parking lights work. If parking lights don't work still and everything else works, replace the light switch $50 at the dealer. The switch works the fog lamps when you pull out the knob to turn on the fog lamps when the lights are turned on. When the fogs are on you will see a little amber light to let you know your fogs are on. When you switch to high beam the fog lamps go off. Again if its not working that way, then is wired wrong. Needless to say, there should be connectors in the harness of the lights for the fog lamps. Use those if possible with the kit that you can get at the dealer, or you can splice the connector with those blue splicing clips sold at the auto part store. Make sure ground is ground when splicing and water proof the connection sith silicone and tape.

2 bulb, 3 wire fog/parking light for 1990 Nissan 300zx fairlady... I need one!!


You really have just five choices here:
  1. eBay. That's where I found mine. It took an age, but I eventually found one but it was pricey.
  2. Post classified wanted ad on sites such as www.300zxclub.com.
  3. Local pick-and-pull car dismantlers, but phone ahead to save you an unnecessary trip. Z32s are not that common in wrecking yards.
  4. Online parts companies, such as RockAuto, not as expensive as the dealer.
  5. Pay retail from your local Nissan dealer.
Best of luck in finding your part.
