Headlights wont turn on?


One: replace the fuse box. Never tape a burned wire. It will eventually catch fire and then... You cannot fix a fuse box that has been burned. Also, there are surely burned wires elsewhere that you have not discovered yet. I recommend that you REPLACE the front harness, or at least the wires that were burned.

2001 saturn sl1. Headlights stuck on brights and wont turn off unless i remove the fuses. So now only are the headlights on, but they are stuck on brights mode unless i pull out the fuses. what can I do to...


I suggest testing the relay for your highbeams (under the hood) as it sounds the relay is stuck in the on position. If that doesn't work, you may have to test your high / low beam lever to see if the contacts are touching

Brake lights wont come on unless my bright headlights are on


By the discription just about the only thing it could be is the multifunction switch, this is the turnsignal, wiper, blinker, bright light, and cruise if it has it switch. And it is not verry simple to replace. The steering colum needs to be taken apart to replace.

Engine wont start


Is it clicking at all. Do you have power.

Turn the headlights on are they bright. Turn the key over do the headlights stay bright.

Start with the easiest and most common problem. Battery is head is has a dead cell and is unable to hold a charge strong enough to turn the engine over.

Headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works


I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
