Question about 1985 Pontiac Firebird
Recently, on a long car trip with my 85 Firebird, both my headlights suddenly went out at the same time. Soon after pulling over, I realized my alternator was not working and that the battery had been leaking acid. I'm not sure what caused what to malfunction, but I now have a brand new alternator AND battery, but my headlights still will not go on. All interior lights work, parking lights, and signals, just not the headlights. Does anyone know if it is the switch or did I just burn the headlights out? Thanks for any advice!!!
If the battery was leaking acid from the filler caps on the battery it may have been caused by the alternator over charging (faulty voltage regulator) hence blow your light bulbs or blown the fuse check for blown fuses first,if they are OK you may have to replace the bulbs .....hope this helps....cheers
