Most likely the relay is dying.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check and let me know if you have questions.

    Funny, my 2003 Old Bravada just started doing this as well. So I will need to look into this, hopefully this is the issue.

Quest head lights won't turn off


The body computer controls the headlight relays based on input from the switches. There is a relay for high beam and one for low beam in a power distribution module in the engine compartment.
I don't know if the relays are available without buying the entire module. One of them could be stuck on.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and procedures to test the circuits.
In the mean time you should be able to pull the 50amp fuse for the headlights.

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

The low beams on my 2006 buick lacrosse wont work the bulbs and fuses have been replaced but they still wont work


Shannon, you did not state if you checked for voltage at the fuse location-or better yet at the bulb location-
If a connection at the relay that feeds power to the low beams has come loose, then the low beams will stay out. Suggest that you locate the headlight relay (in a box under the hood) and verify that it is operating. If an assistant can operate the headlights while you listen (and feel) for relay operation, then you can eliminate that as an issue. Next would be the output of the relay (contacts could be bad) - and if you cannot open the relay to verify good contacts, then purchase a replacement relay (possibly from a junkyard) and plug that in.

Remember, the relay supplies the power to the headlights.

My headlights on my sunfire go off while driving


Right now, I'm thinking the head lamp switch assembly has a problem? See the wire color in the top of head lamp, that is voltage, fuse protected, hot all the time. When problem is ongoing, you could use a test lite, check for voltage at fuse circuit?
The headlamp switch assembly is located on headlamp ground circuit. There could be a wiring problem, somewhere. I can only help with testing.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

97 linc town car/ at night the auto head lights turn on. on low beam, works fine then when using turn signal the headlights go out. hit signal arm to high beam, and the lights come on, then i put back on...


You have a bad mutifunction switch or headlight switch is going bad and is over heating then cooling off comming back on Have a mechanic check it cause there are other things that can cause this. Since it's not blowing a fuse at this time I would say the head light switch is bad.
