2000 Grand Am SE Headlights and Tailights always on

2000 Grand Am SE When my car is running, the headlights are constantly on along with the tail lights and dash lights. Does the light sensor go bad? How can I fix this?

    No I do not. I drove it to the store during the day. When I left the store the lights came on and since then they always come on. Where can I find instructions on how to change the sun load sensor?

Yes the sun load sensors can go bad. Do you have a dash mat covering the sensor?

Are tailights supposed to be on when headlights


When/if you turn the headlights on with the switch the tail lites should be on but if you are asking about when you start and run the car without manually turning on the headlights then no, the headlights you are referring too are actually day time running lights (your headlights @ 1/2 the power) and are for safety. when those are on your tail lights will not be on.

1994 Pontiac Grand am Tailights all work normaly except when the headlights are on and then they don't work at all?


Could be the headlight switch.
The switch has two sets of contacts for the parking lights, the park position and headlight position.
You may need to check the circuit at the switch to see if you are loosing power when the switch is moved from park to head.

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited i have brake lights that work when i apply brakes, but as as soon as i turn my headlights on the fuse blows and i have no working tailights with the headlights on. ...


There is definitely a short in the park lights system. Did you just have a radio installed....since the illumination wire sometimes gets grounded and will cause that fuse to blow until you fix that wire.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work


Check the TAILGHT FUSE. GM's unusual way of letting you know there is something wrong. Otherwise how often do you check your tailight operation. Only by another driver telling you, your tailights aren't working, would you know. Hope this helps.

Daytime Running lights wont come on on my 2000 Grand Am SE.


Do your high beam headlights work? If you have a burnt high beam light the daytime running lights won't work and then the service vehicle soon light comes on.
