A bad earth or vibration. Check and clean bulb and earth contacts.
Also check that the light mount is solid and not vibrating.

What causes the CPS to go bad repeatedly in a 2001

USA car or the Export?

tell me what CPS means. we dont use that name since 1990

no engine stated, so how would we answer such a questions.

4.0L or 4.7L or 5.7L ?engine.

my guess is the cam sensor? or the crank sensor?


how often once a week, decade, ?

all parts on care fail repeatably say in 100 years

but my guess i means, inside 5 years, but what, do say.

clear facts make answers very easy.

my wild guess.

The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.0L 6 cylinder engine is bolted to the top of the oil pump drive shaft assembly. The sensor and drive shaft assembly is located on the right side of the engine near the oil filter.

The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 3.7L V6 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.

The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.7L V-8 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.

The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 5.7L V8 engine is located on right side of timing chain cover below alternator.

The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) on the 4.0L 6 cylinder engine is mounted to the transmission bellhousing at the left/rear side of the engine block The CKP on the 3.7L, 4.7L and 5.7L engines is located at the left rear of the engine just above the starter motor.

now may guess based on those 2 sensors above.

the CAM SENSOR (in pure english) fails for heat.

all have a tendancy to fail for too much heat,

and for overheating the engine.

the closer it fits the the engine, the more likely it will fail. (heat)

some that fit to cam ends love to fail soon., heat.

failure mode 2 is overvoltage.

if the Alternator goes bad and overvoltage , in fact over 15v

any electronic part can fail, even light bulbs.

mode 3

using a pressure washer can wreck just about anything made.

mode 4

dropping it to the concrete,

you, others, or the shipper,

mode 5

a dumb ,mechanci , hot wired it and burned it up, or injured it. (called the walking wounded)

that pretty much covers it.

but what sensor exactly and what engine.

and how long did it last in months

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.

When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

2004 Chevy Impala lowbeam headlamp socket/connector burns--though bulb is fine. Replaced once already and now same socket has burned again--and the bulb is still okay. What gives?

Hi Miles, Have you replaced the head lamp bulbs and maybe used a higher output? That can overheat the fuses and or the connectors. The over heating and damage will usually be caused by loose connections causing high resistance and heating. Make sure the connections are tight. Regards John

Signal light blinking too fast

I just had that problem with my jeep cherokee and either your bulb has burned out or it is burning out. Time to replace it. Turn the signal light lever on the side that's flashing fast, get out of the vehicle and look at the front and back signal lights and replace the one that isn't blinking...hope this helps.

Left and right turn signal are not working but it does hazzard lights what is the problem they dont blink when you hit them to turn

Probably your flasher or flash. It is usually located under dashboard with your other fuses. I had same problem years ago took it to midas and they fixed it in 5 minutes, cost me 10 bucks. Simple fix.

Low beam on either side last only a few months before needing replacement

I had the same problem with my 2005 CR-V starting about a year after I had the car (I guess the factory lights died), I started having to replace the bulbs every month or so. Very annoying. Never had both die at the same time, but often had one go out within days of replacing the other. It seemed to happen right at the start-up (I face a wall when I park, and could actually see the light "pop"). And Honda doesn't make it easy to replace these bulbs. About four months ago, I replaced both lowbeams, but I was particularly careful to (1) not touch the bulb with my fingers or against any of the engine compartment components. I was also very careful to reseat the rubber seal so that it was right side up (see the manual). Since then, I have not had the problem. I suspect that moisture was getting inside the seal and causing the bulb to pop (I had some bulbs completely blow out) or overheat. This probably goes back to my initial faulty replacement step where I didn't pay attention to making sure the rubber seal was right side up. All this being said, I suspect I'll start my car tomorrow and all the head lights will go out. And by the way, the high beams are the original bulbs. Go figure.

Right rear turn signal flashes fast with head lights on.

You have a bad ground at the right rear tail light assembly

Many times the ground is right there at the light. Follow the wire from the bulb base and see where it goes. Try tightening the fixture first

good luck

2002grand am daytime running lights

99 - 04 grand am.

I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.
