1987 caprice headlight won't work


check power and ground at the headlight socket for high and low. if you have power and ground there the headlight is no good. if not then you will have to trace back to find the problem, but first I would check the headlight switch after finding out if you don`t have power or ground.

Where is the headlight relay located on a 1985 caprice classic?


No headlight relay I know of.
If none of the headlights work, problem could be the dimmer switch or the circuit breaker built into the headlight switch.
You would check for voltage in and out of the switches.

Where is circuit breaker for headlamps on a 1989 caprice


The breaker for the headlights is inside the headlight switch.
You should have a fuse and relay for the horn.
Could be a problem with the wiring harness for the steering column.

My headlights went out dont know what the problem is low beam dont work high beams works


it may be the dimmer switch located on the base of the steering colume that is not working on the low beam side.also the headlights themselves may need changing if the low beam filament is burnt out and you didn`t realize one was burnt out then the other one burnt out.if that`s not the case then it could be a bad connection at the plug connector for the low beam or for some reason power is lost between the switch and the headlight.you don`t say if this has day time running lights,if it does then it could be the drl relay that is bad.

91 firebird (headlights wont go up or down).

Click on the link, hope you can read it? The top four wires are voltage. The two on the right come from head lamp switch. The two on the left are fuse protected, hot all the time. Use a test light and check for voltage. Hopefully the text will tell you how the module works. I don't know if replacing module will fix it, but, if voltage and grounds for the module are all ok, what else could it be?

Headlights


The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
