    ground wire that runs those lights you can check the chassie or any other that might be connected se if you can find the ground that runs from those lights and follow it to where it connects even check around fuse box to see if theres any loose wires check all fuses to see if theres a blown fuse a lot of cars have one inside the car and one just under the hood check one inside first

SOURCE: 2008 nissan sentra has occasional starting issues.

Could be bad battery or Somthing going on with the main fuse box.  Another thing to check is your ground wires.  If they are loose, you can not complete the circut.

SOURCE: My crossfire shuts off randomly

does your car have a alarm system in it?

mabye the immobiliser kicks in you need to take the car to a car alarm place and get them to look at it

if you want to do it your self
on the lines going to the ignition barral are wires for starter and one for ignition
when wiring the alarm these wires are cut and then sent to the alarm control box
you need to find out which wires are which in the ignition barral and connect them normaly like they came out of factoryon a temporailly bais to see if this cures the problem

Why would the trunk ajar light come on and the digital clock and stereo quit working?

I let someone drive my car and the lights were left on overnight - then when I drove it at night my radio, clock and lights would surge on and off - the next day it wouldn't start easily, we had a local auto parts store read our codes and they checked the battery and alternator - after I replaced the battery, we noticed there was still a light on without the car turned on - anyway now the lights are back in automatic off and the car runs normal. Wish I would have checked if any lights or overhead lights were left on first before I got the new battery.

Chevy climate control

it sure could be that head unit. if you want to clean the unit it might help. disconnect the battery, pop the bezel off the radio and head unit remove the four 9/32" bolts that hold the unit in the dash, unplug the head unit and spray it with computer duster.

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland won't start, please help! The starter is new and the battery is new (and several other new parts: radiator, tires, rims, & brakes). It was running fine but one...

There are several causes that might lead to such a problem.

A dead fuel pump (could be the pump, pump relay or wiring circuit);A plugged fuel filter;Low fuel pressure (weak pump or restricted line); or No pulse signal to injectors (bad injector relay or PCM driver circuit).

One of the first things to check is the fuel pump. Then you carry out these tests,

Run a test on this components and you should be able to detect where the problem is from.
Static Fuel Pressure Test, Residual Fuel Pressure Test, Running Fuel Pressure Test, Dead Head Pressure, Fuel Volume Test, Fuel Pressure Regulator Test, Fuel Pressure Drop Test, Scope Tests.
After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell what component is faulty and how to solve the problem.
Take care and good luck

About a week ago the passenger head light quit, changed bulb nothing. today the drivers side light quit as well. So now I have no headlights. The high beams work great still. Where should I start looking?

First check the fuses located inside the hood or under the dash. If any are burned replace them. If not, then replace both headlight bulbs and try it. If that is not the problem check the dimmer switch. The best and easiest way to find out is to take the car for a trouble code free at most autoparts stores.
