Drivers heaflight goes out sometimes.when the lights aare turned back off and on it stays lit.any sussestions


Hi Owen

Headlights don't work directly from the in vehicle dash switch.

They use very fine wiring to that switch. Not thick enough to supply current to the Headlamps.
Instead, the small switch is used to actuate a magnetic switch with bigger current carrying contacts. Usually close to the Battery & Headlights.
The device is called a Relay.
The contacts are moved by a small low current electromagnet that can be heard clicking.
The contacts in the relay can sometimes get stuck (welded) together which keeps the headlights on when the internal switch is turned off.
Relays are often grouped together in the Fuse Box area.
You can either find the Relay and unplug it and open it up & clean the contacts or strengthen internal spring.
OR
Replace the Relay with another.

Why won't 2002 Chevy express van with Sidewinder security system headlights shut off when headlight switch and key is off?


Either the headlight relay is stuck on, or the security system's headlight control is shorted and keeping the headlight relay on. Find the headlight relay (probably in a fuse and relay box under the hood), remove it and check the contacts with an ohmmeter. They should read open in a good relay, but will read little or no resistance if the contacts have welded together ( a possible result of rapid on-off cycling).

Headlight switch turns my Bronco off?!


Sounds like a weak connection somewhere close to the battery.
The alternator should be able to keep up with the extra electrical load not to mention the storage capacity of the battery. So if the headlights are killing power to the key switch, something is weak between the battery and the key.
Could be a corroded cable, connection at the solenoid, or in the fuse box.

My 1992 Corolla DX headlights won't come on! I have changed the fuses and the bulbs. The relay clicks when turning the switch and the wiring seems to be in good condition but I am no electrician. The...


Power flows from the battery to the main fuse. Then it flows to the control coil and contact side of the headlight relay. When you turn on the headlights, the headlight switch provides ground to the control coil in the headlight relay and that operates the contacts. The contacts allow power to flow to the right and left hand headlight fuses. Power flows to the headlights. The headlight switch is what provides ground to the high and low beams on the headlights.

To diagnose, remove the headlight relay. Using a voltmeter, check for battery voltage on terminals 3 & 4 in the socket with the key in the RUN position. Then turn on the low beams. Test for good ground on terminal 1 in the socket. If you're not getting ground, then you've got a problem with either a bad headlight combo switch or a bad ground. If you get good ground on terminal 1, reinstall the relay, turn on the low beams and test for power in the headlight sockets. If you get battery voltage, that confirms you've got good fuses and wiring up to that point. Next, check for good low beam ground on the red/green wire in the bulb socket. If you're not getting good ground, it's either a bad combo switch or bad ground from the combo switch. Then turn on the high beams and check for good ground on the red/yellow wire in the bulb sockets.

It wouldn't hurt to clean the ID ground on the left side of the instrument panel, but based on everything you've said so far, this sounds like a bad combo switch
