If both headlights went out at the same time, you might check the fuse for them. Your owner's manual should indicate where they are, and the compartment they are in usually has a diagram on it indicating which fuse goes to what. If they went out separately over a period of time, you might have to replace the bulbs. If both your high beams and your low beams are out, I would think it was a fuse. There are, of course, always other and more expensive possibilities (switches, etc.)

2005 jeep GC had starter issues but now the 4th starter in 2 years is missing Not every time , but last time it got progressively worse I had the ignition recall addressed any ideas Wiring ?

You can check the plugs on the bottom of the TIPM/fuse panel for corrosion. If none found, suspect the fuse panel. I replaced a lot of them this year. 05 and up. All Chrysler products.

Error msg appears,"Service ABS & Electronic Stability Control."

Its possible it could just be cleared by a simple reset, but it typically points toward a failed component. Most likely a bad ABS sensor.

Headlights wont turn off

I had this same thing happen on my 2005 Forenza. All of a sudden my battery was dead. When I got it jumpstarted the headlights came on bright and would not switch to dim. They also would not turn off with the switch or any other means other than pulling the fuse under the hood. Carried it to the Suzuki dealership and found out that my car had never had the headlight harness recall fix, and there were several other recalls on them for waterpumps and something else that they fixed while I was there. If you have a Suzuki Forenza you may have a recall outstanding. But I don't know if they are even still honoring repairs now that they are out of the auto business. It's worth a check by calling the nearest Suzuki dealership.

I am wondering the price (roughly) and the # of the fuse which powers the cigarette lighter and the radio on a 2001 Town

First a recall - in case you are having radio issues:

Due to possible water leakage from the air conditioning system, Chrysler has recalled all 2001-02 Dodge and Chrysler minivans with base radios. Moisture can enter the vent holes on the top of the chassis and short circuit the radio, possibly causing a fire. Dealers are to remove the radio and apply protective tape to keep water out.

Next Fuse location: 15 AMP#14DRIVER'S SIDE UNDER HOOD

I found a white washer - about 1/2 inch thick - that had jammed the left headlight washer. What is this for and is it important?

I cannot specifically answer what the washer is for, but washers are utilized when tightening the screw or bolt and space needs to be filled, especially to obtain a tighter torque, but if the screw/bolt threads down tight and fine, and with the correct torque, then you should be okay. On another note, there is a headlight recall for 2005 MINI's. You can find the number to call and details at Here is another source for recalls being developed and issues to possibly expect:

Head lights won't work. drl and high beams work

Check for sure, that both bulbs haven't somehow (unlikely, I know) blown out. If they are both fine, it could be the headlight switch. Another possibility, there was a recall recently for the headlights due to the splices not staying together, causing the regular headlights to not function. This recall affected over 90,0000 Suzukis of different model years. Hope this helps, sorry I couldn't give you anything concrete

2004 jetta headlights going out when switching low/high beams

There is no recall regarding the headlights on that vehicle.

What typically happens is the wiring inside the light housing melts and the bare wires randomly touch each other.

You can verify this by taking one of the plastic covers off the back of a headlamp housing and checking out the three wire harness inside. It is extremely common for this to occur on that vehicle.
The wiring can be repaired, though difficult without removing the lamp.
If you wish to replace the wiring with factory replacement parts, there is no service parts for the lamp, you must replace the entire housing unfortunately. For this reason most people just repair the melted wires.

All electronic accessories work when key is in

test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

2003 Honda Civic Headlights burn out in six Months?

Actually, I would call your local Honda dealership to see if there have been any recalls made for this reason in the past. If Honda hasn't issued a recall, it's possible that you have a short in your wiring somewhere. Either that, or when you're installing the new bulbs, is there a possibility that you're leaving fingerprints on the bulbs? This will cause the oil from your fingers to heat up on the bulb, causing the bulb to burn hotter than originally intended. This has been known for causing many similar problems in many similar vehicles, especially when the headlight bulbs in question are halogen. Hope this helps and have a great day!
