Question about 1989 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Head lights don't work

I have no headlights. If you put the switch on it says headlights are on but they really are not. You can hold on the high beam switch and they will come on but if you let go you have no lights. They told me it was the dimmer switch I can't find for 89 but there is for 1987.

High beam headlights stuck on replaced switch same problem


It can be issue with headlight switch,but as its already been replaced.Try disconnecting high beam headlight wiring from headlight assembly and reconnect direct external wire from headlight switch to headlight assembly,then by switch see if headlight is getting off and turning on or not.

Headlight problems


If the lights work when moving or holding the high beam switch there is a good possibility the switch itself is bad. The switch is located at the base of the steering collumn. the handle actually only operates a rod that goes into the switch to push it down to switch from high to low beam. The switch is not expensive and easily accessable although you sorta have to stand on your head to reach it.

2003 GMC Envoy low beam head lights will not come on. The bulbs are not blown, fuse's ok, no power coming to the head light connector. minimal power to the fuse compartment with fuse removed. 9 to 10...


The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

Its reversial for me my high beams wont work what


Good day:
the following is what you can do to test to see whats going on
turn on the headlights,put in high position
2.leave light in high, disconnect the head light dimmer switch, connect a fused jumper between head light relay supply voltage circuit of the dimmer switch and the control circuit of the head light relay. if the high beams come on then replace the dimmer switch, if the high beams don,t come on then.
3.use a fused jumper across the battery positive voltage supply circuit and the switched high beam voltage supply circuit. if the high beam come on now replace the head light relay, if the high beams don't come on then you will have to replace the LH I/P fuse block. I would most likely say that it's the relay just because of the year. I gave you a lot here I hope this helps

Cheers
