Sounds like the switch is shorted out, maybe.

    My next post was going to show you how to change the switch, but you already idid that.



    Do you have daytime running lamps installed as an aftermarket feature on this car?

    I looked at the schematic and it didn't have daytime running lamps on it, but I thought I would ask, anyway.

I have 1996 olds ciera that i can not figure out why my headlight switch does not work. My lights stay on all the time


You have a head light module under the dash on the drivers side. I always just rewired and bypassed them. Seemed I could never find one. You'll need wiring diagrams.

No tail lights, bulbs work for flashers and break and blinkers


The tail lamp circuit is different from the others you mentioned. I would check the fuse for the tail-marker lamps for power and the headlight switch.

My headlights stay on brights and the tail lights stay on when the key is on and the switch is off


Possible that the relay to the headlamp unit is struck and so needs to be checked. if so the relay has failed and must be changed.
Check the relay using a multimeter , remove the power to the relay to contfirm, if not the cluster switch also is a culprit as it can be short.

MOST VEHICLES HAVE A CIRCUIT BREAKER BUILT IN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. OVER TIME THE CIRCUIT BREAKER WILL GET WEAK & IT WILL TURN THE HEADLIGHTS ON & OFF. YOU PROBABLY NEED A NEW SWITCH & THE FUSE BLOWING IN THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT MAY BE A SEPARATE ISSUE.

Headlight and tail lights


Some cars automatically turn running lights or headlights on for added safety. Perhaps yours does. It should tell in your manual.

Hwere is the switch for courtesy lights on floor?


The older cars have a dimmer switch built into the headlight switch panel that turns on and off the interior lights and the dash lights , in some cases it is the pull headlight switch light that one can turn up and down for bright and dim to off position.'There may also be a single thumb turn or twist turn light switch that controls the interior lights located on or around the headlight panel switch.

How do I change out headlight bulb on 91 olds cutlass cierra


Behind the headlight, you should see the nylon bulb holder. Turn it counter clockwise, about a 1/4 turn, and it should come out. Pull the old bulb straight out, and replace it with the new one. Don't touch the glass part of the new bulb with bare fingers, or you'll be replacing it again. Use cotton gloves or a paper towel. Put the holder back in the headlight, turn it clockwise until it locks.
