Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire

1996 Pontiac Sunfire - my night headlights don't come on, but the day time lights will come on once the car is in gear only. The highbeams won't stay on either unless I hold the switch. Can anyone help me? Thanks

My lights wont come on ive changed fuses and bulbs what can problem be please n thanx


you may have a bad switch for the lights.if the fuses and the bulbs are good,you don`t say if your talking about the headlights tail lights,dash lights,signal lights brake lights,low beam lights high beam lights or both.i`m assuming headlights.if you have a daytime headlights,the relay in this car it could have gone bad as it is tied into the regular headlight system.

Headlights only work when car is in gear


If you are stating the headlights only work while in gear (during the day or night) then they are your daytime running lights. Don;t know if you vehicle has automatic headlights or a manual switch. If you are stating you turn the headlights on and they only illuminate while in gear then there are other issues. Let me know

I have a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire. When you turn the headlights on, they stay on Daylight running lamps for a while and eventually come on after clicking the high beam switch a few times. Is this the...


this could be a little more simple depending on the lighting outside. quite a few GM's with DRL will turn on the dash lights and tail lights automatically when it gets so dark outside. if it happens when it's completely dark out i would check the switch itself and maybe the relay incase it is sticking

This happened to me twice. The problem is the Headlamp Dimmer and Turn Signal Switch. $92 at advance auto and easy to change. Start by removing a couple of bolts on the bottom side of the column to gain access by removing the column plastic shroud. you will see a couple screws holding in the turn signal/headlight switch and a plug. Easy stuff. Here is a link to the part you need. http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_Headlamp-Dimmer-and-Turn-Signal-Switch-ACDelco_15730096-P_403_R%7CGRPSESWAMS_994542117___
