Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I have a 99 Cavalier. The headlights don't work when the switch is turned on, but they will come on when you pull back on the high beam lever (both high and low work). Since the lights will come on, does this mean that it is a switch problem and not a wiring (corrosion, etc) problem?

Most likely its the switch, check for continuity of electrical current on it

97 grand marquis high beam stop work but the light well show up on dash that its on but lights dont come on


Does the high beam work on `flash to pass' feature? That's when you pull the lever toward you to flash your high beams.
If they light up while you pull your lever, it's probably a bad headlight connection at the switch on the dash,OR a bad headlight switch(very expensive if it has the delay feature,which most of them do.
If your lghts DON'T brighten when you pull the lever toward you,it might just be bad bulbs......one goes out and you don't notice it, and then when the other goes out,you NOTICE it. don-ohio (:^)

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. Headlight Problem: Year ago? Switched on high beams, complete darkness (low beams don't work at the same time I've come to find out). Solution: Don't turn on...


ok, first ,, check all the bulbs again, and *** make sure that your hands never touch the actual bulb, these lights will turn the oils from your hands into cooking grease when it comes to these bulbs and cause them to blow out much to early on in their life span, , next,, Pull the light switch ( high beam switch towards you for a quick flash of the head light high beams,, if this doesn't make the high beams come on, your problem is going to be in the switch itself ( what your calling the high beam/turn signal lever) before going to that extreme though,, if you have a junk yard near you, go pull one of the relays off a junked vehicle, and stab it into your system one at a time, it could be something as simple as a relay heating up and disconnecting prematurely due to heat ,, if you don't have a junk yard that you can grab a relay,, here is a link that shows how to check them, But its time consuming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8t25GjZ6i4&NR=1

2008 chevy express high beams don't work when i pull back on the multi switch to turn on the high beams the headlights go completely out


Your dimmer switch (lever you pull to switch lights) is probably bad. Before you replace pull and visually insect all your fuses. Some late model GMs have separate fuses for hi beams and lo beams.

Car: 2000 Chev Cavalier 4dr 2.2L? 4 cylinder car? My problem is this my low dim lights are very low, my high beams works only when I hold the lever arm ? (Not sure how to explain this?) any ideas what...


First, be sure that the headlights are actually coming on. These cars have daytime running lights that use the headlight bulbs at a lower voltage. If the car is only using the daytime running lights, the tail lights will not be on with the headlights. The multifunction lever always turns on the high beams when you pull on it (it's called 'flash to pass'). Make sure the headlight switch is working, and also check the headlight circuit breaker.

Lights go off when i turn on the high beam


Pull your lever back if the high beams work that way you need a new high/low beam switch, if they do not you need to replace headlight bulbs.

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
