Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Headlights don't need replacing, but won't stay on...

The actual headlights work - they come on when I unlock the car, but there seems to be a short somewhere because I can't actually turn them on with the switch. Is this something that might be worth trying to check out myself or should I just take it in for repair? Plus, any idea what this could cost me?

You may have a problem with either the headlight switch or the dimmer switch. You'll need a wiring diagram to actually determine the fault.

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work


First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/97ecoog1e.pdf

When I turn on the vehicle the headlights and windshield wipers come on and won't turn off. When I turn the key off there is a delay before it actually turns off and the headlights won't turn off.


This sounds like an issue with your ignition switch. Basically what is happening here is that you are shutting off your vehicle, but the ignition switch is not working correctly and is allowing certain accessories to stay on.

Interior lights & radio light turns off


Does the car run fine and start fine if you don't turn the head lights on ? The symptoms you describe here suggest a battery that is run down, in need of charging or a faulty battery, however if the same batter starts the car without a problem then you have a much more tricky problem to sort out as it seems your lighting circuit is then producing a direct short on power circuit resulting in nothing working. Do the headlights actually come on when you do this and stay on while every thing else goes off ?
