You have a head light module under the dash on the drivers side. I always just rewired and bypassed them. Seemed I could never find one. You'll need wiring diagrams.

SOURCE: No headlights, or dash lights.

check the ground cable at the battery , youll see a break in the ground wire at the battery box, check to make sure the bolt is tight and not corroded (the break is the ground for most of the lighting )

SOURCE: 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.

First you have to remove the corner turn signal and grill. Both should be held on with just some hex screws (3 in signal, about 6 in grill). Then you should see 4 black bolts. Unscrew those and the assembly comes right off. : )

My headlights stay on brights and the tail lights stay on when the key is on and the switch is off


Possible that the relay to the headlamp unit is struck and so needs to be checked. if so the relay has failed and must be changed.
Check the relay using a multimeter , remove the power to the relay to contfirm, if not the cluster switch also is a culprit as it can be short.

Hi, Have an 88 Olds Cutlass Ciera. High beams come on, but won't stay on more then 10 seconds. Low beamd did work, but now flash on and off. This may or may not be related. Short in tail light , the fuse...


MOST VEHICLES HAVE A CIRCUIT BREAKER BUILT IN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. OVER TIME THE CIRCUIT BREAKER WILL GET WEAK & IT WILL TURN THE HEADLIGHTS ON & OFF. YOU PROBABLY NEED A NEW SWITCH & THE FUSE BLOWING IN THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT MAY BE A SEPARATE ISSUE.

Headlight and tail lights


Some cars automatically turn running lights or headlights on for added safety. Perhaps yours does. It should tell in your manual.

Hwere is the switch for courtesy lights on floor?


The older cars have a dimmer switch built into the headlight switch panel that turns on and off the interior lights and the dash lights , in some cases it is the pull headlight switch light that one can turn up and down for bright and dim to off position.'There may also be a single thumb turn or twist turn light switch that controls the interior lights located on or around the headlight panel switch.

How do I change out headlight bulb on 91 olds cutlass cierra


Behind the headlight, you should see the nylon bulb holder. Turn it counter clockwise, about a 1/4 turn, and it should come out. Pull the old bulb straight out, and replace it with the new one. Don't touch the glass part of the new bulb with bare fingers, or you'll be replacing it again. Use cotton gloves or a paper towel. Put the holder back in the headlight, turn it clockwise until it locks.
