I believe the black ball you mentioned is a vac-reserve ball and the vacuum lines are on top.

The switch you speak of , as far as I remember was for accidents where cars rollover. This was to prevent fire. I believe in your case because of the area ,side front of car, your problem lies with your crankshaft sensor. Sometimes all it takes is a jolt and these sensors give up there life. This sensor on your car is located on the front left side of your engine, in the immediate area of your accident.
If you can , try to get some body to pull up the codes from your computer. These codes will tell you what the problem is with your car. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

Mr Pinske,

The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

1993 Buick Century
HEADLIGHT REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Non-European Style
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
  1. Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws.

  1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.

  1. Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws.

Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

  1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.

To install:

  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
  3. Install the trim panel.
Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

Can you help me change my headlight assembley? i have a 97 200sx SE


1.) Pop the hood to your Nissan. The headlight assemblies are only accessible from the engine compartment.

2.) Clear the area behind the bulb you are replacing. If you are replacing the passenger side bulb, you will need to remove the radiator overflow bottle. The bottle will unhook from its connective tube by pulling it toward the front of the car and up from the ground. If you are replacing the driver's side bulb, you may need to remove the battery. You will do this by unscrewing the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals that connect the battery to the engine, and then lifting the battery straight out of its housing.
3.) Remove the electrical connection on the back of each headlight assembly. This will be a bundle of wires with a wide plug sticking into the back of the assembly.
4.) Unlatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
5.) Pry the small metal clip holding the bulb using your fingers or a screwdriver. Be careful not to bend, break or damage the clip or the bulb.
6.) Insert the replacement bulb into the headlight socket and reattach the metal clip that holds the bulb in place.
7.) Relatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
8.) Reconnect the electrical connection to the back of the headlight assembly.
9.) Replace the radiator overflow bottle or the battery, depending on which bulb you replaced.

Dash lights and tail lights not working after accident!


If it is just the dash and the tail lights then the small light fuse under the hood right side must be blowing.  There must be a short somewhere.  I had this problem recently.  you need to look for the short in some odd places.  there is a known defect in the sunvisors that can pinch wires and short this fuse.  In my case the car stereo had a stray wire that was the problem. I think its the #15 fuse under the hood

I was in an accident and damaged the driver's side front headlight sude whre cani find parts


The cheepest place to get parts for your car is at the wrecking yard. Check the phone book or look on line for one near you. Call to make sure they have a car like yours before you go. This way you can get the part you need first and if you damage any components that hold the parts you need to the car you won't be hurting your own car.

Parklight replacement


Hi, if the bulb is just blown then you can replace it by removing the cover off the back of the headlight (black cover, rotates about 1/4 turn to remove) and just pull the bulb socket out of its retainer. It's the small round thing just beside the main bulb assembly, with 2 wires going to it. Once its out, just pull the bulb out, fit the new one, and reassemble. If it is the same side as the battery, you may have to remove the battery to get enough room to get in there to replace the bulb. If you remove the battery, you'll need the radio code, if its still got the original radio.
If the headlight lens is broken from some accident damage, then you'll have to take the bumper off to get the headlight out and replace it.
Hope this helps.
