2007 chev sub head lights wont turn on

Do you know anything about automotive electronics ? Electronic control modules .
Headlamp ON/OFF control is determined by the body control module (BCM) by a signal on the headlamp switch on input circuit when the headlamp switch is in the HEAD position. When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, the BCM determines headlamps ON/OFF by the voltage from the ambient light sensor.
If the headlight switch is left in the ON position, the inadvertent power control feature will turn OFF the headlights approximately 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position. If the driver places the headlight switch in the ON position after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or if the ignition switch is in the ACCY position, the headlights will remain ON until turned OFF or the battery runs dead.
The high beam indicator is illuminated when the instrument cluster receives a GMLAN serial data message from the BCM that the high beams are illuminated.
High Beams
The high beam headlamps receive voltage from the headlamp high relay located in the underhood fuse block. The BCM controls the relay on the headlamp high beam relay control circuit. High beam control is determined by a signal on the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit from the multifunction switch. When the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit is grounded, the BCM grounds the headlamp high beam relay control circuit, illuminating the high beam headlamps. The right and left high beam circuits are independent and are fused independently in the underhood fuse block.
Low Beams - Standard
The low beam headlamps receive voltage from the headlamp low beam relay located in the underhood fuse block. The BCM controls the relay on the headlamp low beam relay control circuit. Low beam control is determined by a signal on the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit from the multifunction switch. When the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit is open, the BCM grounds the headlamp low beam relay control circuit, illuminating the low beam headlamps. The right and left low beam circuits are independent are fused independently in the underhood fuse block.

Hooking up a factory scan tool an checking DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would be the very first step in trouble shooting this problem .

What is causing the hdlpc ctrl relay in the under the hood fuse panel to continuously click. This happens even when the vehicle is off.

If you are sure you have located the correct relay, on some cars the hdlp relay is used to shut on and off the headlamps when they are not activated by the headlamp switch, such as when they are used for "auto" setting, daytime running or for convenience feature (when the headlights stay on for one minute or so, when you shut the car off). remove the relay and see if the "auto" headlight function is working (do it at night, with the car outside), If the relay is clicking, then there might be a bad connection, poor ground or the light sensor (which determines if there is daylight) is bad.

What is the clicking noise come from the relay fuse box with e the motor off and the key out

It could be a couple of things. Try finding out which relay is clicking by touching the top of each relay. You'll be able to feel the click. The lid to the fuse box should have a diagram of what each relay controls. If the fuse box doesn't have the information, your car's manual will have it. In the back, look for "Fuse."

My fans wont turn on and when i stop temperature starts rising

It could be the fan relays. The relays are located in the main fuse box under hood. Also, have the fan motors checked out as well. To determine if it is the relay, simply remove a relay identical to the fan relay and switch them out. Start the engine and turn on the a/c (if equipped). The fans should run. If not, then the motors are bad.

My brake lights are on and will not go off.

brake switch above pedal or brake light relay in engine compartment relay box may have failed on/shorted. First remove connector from brake switch to see if that puts them out. If yes, replace switch. If no, remove relay from relay socket. If relay doesn't click off as you remove it, replace relay.

Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

1999 Izuzu Trooper will not start

Try neutral start switch. Use shop manual to determine its location on an automatic vehicle. If vehicle is a stick its attached to clutch pedal via lever. To test it remove it from its connectors and make a jumper wire and jump the circuit if car starts you found your culprit.

What would cause the auto shutdown relay to click after i try starting it and will start.

Mostly likely it is the Relay that is beginning to go bad. One way to test this is to use the Spare Relay of the same Type (size and shape). OR switch out a similiar Relay of the same type (size and shape) THAT IS A NON-ENGINE OPERATION RELAY. Check again the operations. If the "new" Relay in the Auto Shutdown Relay no longer clicks, then it most likely was the Relay that should be replaced. However, IF you used the "old" Relay in another function, put your finger on this Relay while the function is "On" and determine if it is now clicking. If it is clicking, then it is definitely the Relay and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

No Start

I had the same problem. If it it is a straight drive there is a switch on the clutch pedal. It can be depressed far enough to disengage the clutch and still not activate the switch. You can bypass directly from the positive termainal on the battery to the wire going to the starter to test. However, if you leave that connected the clutch will activate the starter every time you depress it all the way. I replaced the relay module after determining that everything else was working. No problems since. (it is a pain to remove that starter -- but I guess you know that now)
