When headlight are on and hit the beake pedal only the 3rd brake light comes on the rest are stuck . When i release brake pedal it seems like i am driving with my brake light on . but my headlight off...

It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.

How do I replace a headlight bulb in my 1996 Olds achieva

How to Replace a Headlight Bulb
(DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 0.9 hour)

1. Headlight Bulb

1. Screwdriver
2. 1/4 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Socket Set


HIGH PERFORMANCE HALOGEN HEADLIGHT BULB -- Low 45/high 65 watts, Dual C-8 filament for both high beam and low beam; 100 percent legal halogen headlight bulbs; Features the whitest and brightest light color similar to daylight for safer night driving; Meets all US FMVSS 108 and Canadian CMVSS 108 requirements.

Step 1 Open the hood and locate the headlight assembly.
o Tip: Most headlight assemblies have a place in the rear to gain access to the headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is recommended that headlight bulbs are replaced in pairs.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Gain access to headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is a good idea to check the high beam and low beam headlight bulbs at this time.

Step 3 Disconnect the wiring harness and replace the old headlight bulb with a new one.


Remove the retaining ring from the base of the bulb, then...


...turn the bulb and remove it from the headlight assembly.

Step 4 Turn on the headlights and check high and low beams to verify repairs.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

How do you properly remove cover to change

The directions for changing the headlight light bulb in all cars are near to same . but all car models are not the exact same, so there may be a few differences based on your particular car. But this.instructions may properly guide you about the directions to replace the head light bulb in your car.
The instructions are as follows :----
1) First of all open the hood of your car and put a spot light or flash light onto the back of the headlight. Look towards the far corner side of the hood, the headlight is located in a space mounted to the far sides.
2) In some of the car models there is a back cover for which you will require a screwdriver to unscrew the back plate to reach to the bulb. properly locate the screws and unscrew the screws using the proper size screwdriver.
3) Then remove the back plate.

Note: In some car models there will be a wiring component connected usually by plastic clips, so detach the plastic clips and then pull wiring to the side. Then remove the back plate.

1) Remove the Old Light bulb which will be easily visible. Then remove old light bulb by screwing it to the left slowly and carefully.
2) You can get the new light bulb from local auto store and purchase the bulb exactly that matches the one your car model .
3) Then insert the new light bulb in reverse by screwing to the right, and secure in place confirm bulb is properly connected and fitted and not remained loose.
4) To test whether the bulb is properly connected. Just try turning on headlights and make sure it lights up.

5) Then plug wiring component back in if your model has that.Then put backplate back in place , then insert the screws back in and screw in with screw driver tightly.
6) Then close the hood properly and check out head light will work properly.
That means your work is done.
