Question about 1996 GMC Sonoma

1 Answer

Headlights won't turn on .Checked the fuses ,which are OK. Tried to see if the "highbeams" would come on. They don't. The highbeam indicator lamp does not come on in the dashboard. The turn signals,parking lamps running lamps,and daytime running lights work OK.

What you need to do is remove the head lamp switch and check for power on the red wire terminal c with a test light.You should have power.If you do then check the yellow wire terminal d and see if you have power when you turn the switch to low beams.The red is power coming in and the yellow is power going out.If you have power going in but not out when you turn the lights on then your switch is bad.replace it.If you don`t have power going in then you need to check for an open circuit in the red wire.Hope this helps.Let me know if you need more help.Good luck.

Headlights not working


check drl unit if not found integrated in fusebox check connections at battery and all fuses if ok if no test light is available take each fuse out 1 at a time and check if not burnt then you have relays for headlights and parking try the 4 way hazards to see if the parking lights function then if all is good play with the multifunction switch to see if not burnt

Headlights won't turn off


The weird noise is the relay for the headlights. You need to locate the relays and replace them. They are in the fusebox that is under the hood.

DRL works all the time...turn lamp switch on ..don't get brighter...and highbeams don't work.


The DRL's are separate from the actual headlights. It sounds like your headlights aren't working at all. The first thing I would check would be the headlight fuse(s), or relay(s). The location for these should be in your owner's manual.

Hope this helps!

Headlights go out


If your Highbeam Switch is on your streering colum (turn signal lever) Thats where I would start too look! It could be the wires to the highbeam switch. I had that happen on my ford. But if the highbeam switch is on the floor, check for a bad circut connection and if that checks ok it might be your main headlight switch! Even though you may not loose your highbeams, your main headlight power still runs through that highbeam switch, and being on the colum thats why the would start to function when you move the shifter.
