Sounds like a dead battery after alternator has gone bad, did anything else loose power? If so start by getting your charging system tested (alternator/battery) and check the connections from the alternator to battery for breaks, corrosion.

Problem i am having is a no headlight issue i replaced my icm about a week ago and now i have no lights at all no dash lights no running lights no high beam lights


As far as interior lamps, there may be an interior dimmer, it rotates to increase or lower interior lamps, and usually includes the dash lamps.
If the lo beams work but not the hi beams, have to check headlamp dimmer switch.

Fuses, check all of them. Check relays, sometimes tapping with the handle of a screwdriver will get a faulty one to work intermittenly. Check dimmer switch and light switch. IF you have driven through water with leaking headlight benzels/covers, then water may have blown both. Im leaning towards fuses/relays or light switch.

Husband's 1988 Bronco II; at first, the low beams stopped working, then we discovered that the highbeams still worked. a few weeks later, the lights would flash and blink when we drove down the road,...


It sounds like you have a bad dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is located at the left floor pan area. Your husband can disconnect the connector and use a jumper wire to get the headlamps working long enough to get home. Then, when it is more convenient, replace the switch.

The headlights on my jeep will not work. The lights are not burnt out and I just installed a new dimmer switch. After I installed the switch, the lights worked for about a week then they stopped working. ...


The headlight switch loads the dimmer switch either the headlight switch is bad or there is a connection problem either on the headlight plug or the dimmer switch plug.
Sometimes if the plug is partially melted or bulged it tells you that the connection has been arcing inside plug.

About a week ago the passenger head light quit, changed bulb nothing. today the drivers side light quit as well. So now I have no headlights. The high beams work great still. Where should I start looking?


First check the fuses located inside the hood or under the dash. If any are burned replace them. If not, then replace both headlight bulbs and try it. If that is not the problem check the dimmer switch. The best and easiest way to find out is to take the car for a trouble code free at most autoparts stores.

99 bonneville, door locks not working, interior


It could very well be the dimmer switch. There is a plastic cover around the steering wheel held by a few screws. Remove the cover & replace the switch. First check headlight grounds for good connection. A common problem with well used cars is that after opening & closing the drivers door 2 million times the electical wires at the flex point where the door harness flexs tend to break. Open outer cover & pry back to expose the wires inside. The ones that are broken are the culprits. Hope this helps you & please recommend advice.
