Hi

Brake light switch either out of adjustment or defective Should be located at upper end of brake pedal under dash.
On the arm of the brake pedal you'll see a button type switch. It needs to be against the arm with the button pushed in. When the brake is applied the button comes out and the lights come on. Most of the time you can just slide it back down in place with your fingers. Most commonly what happens is that people will get there foot under the pedal and accidentally knock the peddle up pushing the switch out of adjustment.

Stuck headlight relay causes the headlight to stay on. For the headlights to remain on even after switching the headlight switch off would point at either the headlight relay sticking, or more likely a problem with the integration relay that controls the headlight relay and performs the shutoff when the driver's door opens. Ask a repair person to investigate the issue, related to this probable reason.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Headlights don't come on automatically


One way to turn off the automatic headlights when the ignition is to apply the parking brake. That dinging sound you hear when you shift into drive is also common with the parking brake applied.

Release the parking brake.

2001 Chevy Tracker Headlights won't turn off


This is a fix for this issue. May be related on 1999~2004 Vitaras, but was discovered on my 2000 Tracker.

My headlights came on highbeam while driving, and then my heater blower failed. I pulled the fuses, went to work. Replaced fuses, left work, when clutch peddle depressed, high beams went off, when released, high beams came on again. 10 minutes later, both headlight fuses blew.

What I discovered: With a meter on resistance hooked up between ground and one headlight wire, At some times, I could see 50 Ohms, other times not much, sometimes 500 Ohms. I removed the lower access panel below the steering wheel an started looking. I noticed the wiring harness, above the steering column, looked like it might have been pinched at assembly, onto the assembly that holds the brake/clutch peddle. After much swearing, I managed to remove the hole assembly after disconnecting all the wires going to the clutch switches and brake light switch, and removing 4 nuts, and 3 bolts. After cutting open the plastic harness cover, I found 6 wires melted together right where it was pinched on the right side of the steering column, at the top of the Brake cylinder mounting studs. 20 minutes of butt splicing and using thick special electrical tape, re wrapping the harness, all was normal again! Total time of repair from investigation start to having an assembled running vehicle again, 5.5 hours. Tools used, Socket wrench 10 MM with extensions, 12 mm with extensions, phillips screwdriver, pliers (Removing pivot studs on peddles) Special electrical tape, crimpers, Loom, a cut up rad hose around sharp bits on peddle assy. Special knowledge, non, just remember to disconnect the battery first, and remove the bracket to the right of the steering column holding the auto lock and Daytime running light module (One 10MM nut)!

I saw a load of Tracker owners (1991 and up through 2002) complaining of similar issues online. After looking at my similar mileage Vitara, and my buddies heavily abused off-road Vitara, I did not see the same alignment of the harness so close to the pinch point. Hope this helps anyone with similar issues!

When engine is turned off and keys have been removed, the radio and clock and interior electronics remain on. What would cause this?


my van does that when the headlights are on to remind you to turn them off,,, reason for that is there is a bell that sounds when the headlights are on , but if you have the radio on loud you wouldn't hear it , so they make the radio stay on so you notice that lights are still on. might be different for your van but that's how mine is ty

Loud Knocking when pressing on gas pedal


What you are describing sounds like you have an engine bearing failing. Do not drive it 'till you have it diagnosed and repaired (most times though it's too late when you hear it.)..... Outside chance it could be the trans flex plate but I doubt it.

There are two black plastic clips behind the the air filter, remove them and release the whole assembly to access the lights.
