Your description is consistent w/ a failed headlamp switch. the other remote possibility is a poor connection at the headlamp switch (this is very unlikely unless someone has been inside the dashboard recently)

Have a 87-88 dodge Dakota and the reverse lights will not go off when the lights are on, how do I fix this?


Do the reverse lights operate normally with the headlights off? The reverse lights are on an entirely different circuit than than the park/headlights. In order for them to come on with the park/headlights, there will have to be a short to power on the circuit. Will the park lights come on if the vehicle is put in reverse with the headlight switch off? Look for shorted/corrodded wiring in the rear taillight circuit and connector plugs. Green corrossion in/around any plug or wiring is a sure sign of a problem

Car parking lights don't come on sometimes.


I'd look real close at the contacts on rotary switch that's the combo turn signal/running lights/headlights switch. I had that with a car I used to have. The contacts got hot, and the plastic behind the contacts melted back, leaving the contacts unsupported.

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

My problem is when I turn on the headlights, the parking lights comes but not the headlights, but when I hold the turn signal switch / highbeam to the rear the driving lights comes on but I will have to...


you might just have two bad low beam headlights, I have seen it before. Only other problem would be the switch that turns on the headlights is bad. Best way is to Test power going into the headlight when the low beams are turned on to rule out the switch.

I have a 2003 Saturn Vue. The turn signals and headlights are on the same handle. When I twist the handle to turn on the headlights all that comes on are the parking lights. When I put the car into gear...


I am having the exact same problem on my 2001 Saturn SL1. I went to Murray's Auto Parts Store in MI and it was 140.00!! for the switch. I'm interested in finding out what you did and if there is any cheap way to fix this.

Headlighs turn off while driving and the parking brake light comes on?


Check your parking brake lever switch. If the switch is tripped, the brake light on the dash comes on and your headlights go out.

If the switch is okay, trace the wiring back for shorts to ground.

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT multifunction switch problem?


I had the exact same problem, I changed the "ignition switch" because the contacts inside were burned, this is why you see all those troubles coming in and out at different moments. It costed me 150$ to do it myself, buy the switch on an online reseller, must cheaper than the dealer! Now everything is back to normal on my Grand Prix GT 99 exept that my headlights don't light up automatically when starting the car... I have to check my fuse/relay and switch to make sure everything is ok on that side.

Good luck.
