I have a 2500hd silverado 02 6.0L light above bumper I think its a driving light but my driving lights are my low beam head lights how do I get them to come on?


Okay those lights are called your driving lights. they only come on during the day, when headlights are off, they are for safety. i know this would drive me crazy, a customer would come in and say i have a light out and i would check and all was fine. the way it works is during the day, headlights off and truck must be in drive,

you will need some one inside holding the brake and put in drive with headlights off for you to see them and see if they need bulbs. let me know the outcome .good day

Hello all, I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 5.3L with 133,000 miles on it. It starts up fine, I put it in drive, it doesn't move, put it in reverse, it backs up, put it back in drive and away we go. The rest...


trannsmission solienoids may be sticking, try some tranx, you can get at the parts store. this stuff is great. it might take a day or two but it works. for the other truck, did you have the front brakes checked, they can bind up, when you back up it frees them up.also, but not probable for 2001 check the brake hoses, they can collapse from the inside, not letting your brakes release all the way good luck

2001lincoln towncar has no tail or running lights but has headlights


I had the same scenario with the taillight and the license plate light that wouldn’t come on. Brake light, emergency light, left signal light, right signal light, and reverse light are all working!!!!! I was limited to drive during the day only for the last two months, so I had to be home before sun set, and my wife loved it actually ;)…..First you need to check all the fuses inside the car as well as the distribution box under the hood, then check the all light bulbs to see if there is any burn light, check the main switch light inside, and if everything turn okay. Your last option is the LCM Lighting Control Module under the dashboard, it cost around $500, but get a used one from the junkyard, it may cost you around $150. Finally, my driving isn’t limited no more.

Suzuki Gr.Vitara.Front wheels dont engage when reversing in 4WD


The short answer is "no", but working out why could be a little bit difficult. Any further diagnosis should be performed on a hoist or with all 4 wheels off the ground and the transfer box in 4H. Be aware that any of the following checks where front and rear wheels may turn at different speeds will generate an ABS error code and a light on the dash that may need a Dealer to turn off - if you have ABS. You'll also need a couple of hydraulic brake line locking clamps. The first check would be to make sure the front prop shaft turns in reverse as it does in forwards 4WD. Why it wouldn't, I couldn't tell you!
Stop the engine, and while someone is holding their foot on the brake, clamp off both front hydraulic lines to each of the front calipers. Release the hand brake (park brake) and release the foot from the brake pedal (keep foot off brakes from now on) and restart the engine (in nuetral or N), and whilst the engine is idling, select 1st and slowly let the clutch out (if it's a manual), or select D (if it's an auto). If the line locks are holding the pressure in the front brakes, then the manual should stall, and the auto's back wheels shouldn't be turning (but the engine would feel like it's in gear). That would confirm that the front wheels are driving when in forwards 4WD.
Then we do the same test but going backwards, so select reverse and let the clutch out (or R if auto), and if what you say is true, then the back wheels should be spinning away at idle. If the engine stalled, or the back wheels aren't turning, then everything is OK.
Remember to remove the line locking clamps after this test.
I would think that you may have only seen the wheel that wasn't turning when going backwards. These cars have open diffs - so the wheel with the most resistance to rotating won't turn, but the one on the other side will. This is the same for both the front axle and rear axle for most Grand Vitaras. Very few have a factory rear LSD, and I don't think any got a front LSD.
I've just had inspiration - if the front wheels don't drive ONLY in reverse 4WD, the only thing wrong would have to be the front diff engaging mechanism or its related wiring/switching controls. If the relays that control the pump that supplies air pressure to the diff engaging diaphragm in the front diff housing don't get the "I'm in 4WD" signal from the transfer box, the pressure is relieved to the diff and you're back into 2WD. My next check would be to see if your reverse lights are working when in reverse. See if your reverse lights come on when in 4WD or 2WD. If they aren't working, or coming on at the wrong time, then SOMEHOW, the wiring/plugs on the gearbox/transfer case may have been mixed up (during a clutch replacement?) or the wiring somewhere else is wrong. I would probably do the checking of reverse lights before the first test above. Good luck. Let me know how you go.

When i turn lights on brakes light work in reverse


Sounds like some crossed wiring or perhaps the connectors to the lights are swapped if they are the same connector. I would start with the brake lights and make sure everything is hooked up the way its supposed to.

Start pulling the fuses one by one until you find the blown fuse. I am having the same problem on my wife chevy van, and that is what I started doing. It did not affect the electrical system.
