RE: Radio

If you mean the radio doesnt retain the memory presets and clock when you shut the car off or turn the key to the 0 position

that could mean that the yellow wire was not connected to the red or hot/positive lead when the radio wiring harness was connect

if this worked before and now it does check the main fuse box
also some radios have a inline fuse connected on the radio wiring harness (behind radio so you'll have to remove it to check, same thing with checking that the yellow wier is connected)

not sure what you mean by "electrical problem headlights"
some cars shut off the electrical current to the head lights (only power to running/park lights) when the ignition is shut off or the key is at position 0

My headlights stay on even when key removed but the turn signals still work


You might have a bad ignition switch. Do the other accessory power features stay on too? Eg .... Radio, blower fan... Do the turn signals still operate when key is removed? But a bad multifunction switch (turn signal, headlight switch) coukd also be bad.

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

2000 alero does not start after sitting in cool temps overnight but works fine when it warms up?


the issue you are having has to do with the ignition switch harness, it is inferior in this vehicle, the best way to I have found to repair these electrical and fuel pump issues , is splice in a ignition switch wiring harness from a 98 - 03 grand am ignition switch harness, I have used Malibu parts also but they seem to be only slightly better than alero, I have done several of these aleros without come backs so there ya go ,

Sounds like a short in the electrical system. Maybe even just a loose ground wire. On the other hand...It could just as easily be a bad ECM (BRAIN)! Warranty still in tact? I hope so. Diagnostic at a certified Jeep shop... Good Luck!
