1999 Oldsmobile Delta 88 headlight problem, daytime running headlights come on, but will not come on when I press the switch, so I do not have any headlights at night, changed relays and switch

I have learned from experience that the things you changed are seldom the problem. It is probably a problem with the lamp control module (LCM), a little mini-computer switching device that controls the lighting circuits. It would be tucked up under the dash somewhere. An electrician (or you) would check for power in on the appropriate wires and then check for power out on the appropriate wires that go from there to the headlight dimmer switch and then routed to the headlight assemblies. You really need a wiring diagram to know what you are looking for. A yellow wire out from the LCM goes to the dimmer switch-this should be hot with headlights turned on.

How to change the headlight switch

the headlight switch is part of the change lane or turn signal lever handle that goes in the steering wheel assembly. You must replace the entire assembly because it is not easy to replace only the headlight switch. As it somewhat expensive, try to check to be sure it is the switch what has failed and not the wiring harness or other part of the circuit. Same situation for the high beams switch. Look for suppliers, as the original part is too overpriced. It is made by "VALEO" from France.

Headlight switch turns on parking lights but not headlights. Have to hold high beam switch on to have headlights at night.

Replace light switch assembly. Remenber some switches pull up to flash headlights and press down to change from low to high--press down again goes from high to low.

I have a 1993 GMC Sierra. If the headlight or parking light switch is on nothing works in the tailight assembly. Blinkers work in the front but blink quickly.Replaced taillight circuit boards with new...

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

My 91' 5th after the headlights are on for awhile they shut off. They will come back on after "resting" . How do I change the dimmer switch

Its probably the circuit breaker inside the headlight switch.
The dimmer switch is part of the turn signal switch.

Headlights don't work.

There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
