1. Make sure you remove the part that surrounds the housing first. This can be a metal trim or an exposed plastic. You should do this so you can reach through the adjusting screws and retaining ring in the headlights.

2. Make sure you also have the right tool for the removal of the headlight's four retaining ring screws. The screws may get corroded most of the time so they can easily be stripped. You should use penetrating oil when going through this process. Allow parts to soak in the oil solution for some time and make sure you're careful enough not to move the headlight aiming screws.

3. After removing the rings, you can work freely on your headlamps. This means that you can start replacing them. But before you do that, make sure that you have unplugged the headlamp's wiring connector which can be found on its back.

4. Now you can work on plugging the connector into your new Ford headlamps. Place the lights carefully on the base. Don't be too worried doing this process as lugs found on the headlight will help in its proper positioning. If you think, something is wrong with the way it fits, you can check on how you positioned the headlights.

5. After installation, you may now test if your Ford headlights are working. If any problem seems to show, it means that something is wrong with your wiring connector and not with your headlight.

6. To fasten the new headlights, the retaining rings should be replaced. Make sure that the adjusting screws' settings are not disturbed. In line with this, make sure you've repositioned all the parts that you removed before you started replacing your Ford headlights.

98 cad deville headlights stay on headlight & twilight sentinel switch is off along with the ign. i'm stumped can you help. Ted


Did you check the high/ low beam headlamp relay ? Stuck contacts in side relay .Plus headlamp relay an DRL relay .All are located in the underhood relay center .
The headlamps are controlled by the body control module (PZM). The battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the HDLPS fuse at the switch side of the headlamp relay via CKT 340 (ORN).
Battery positive voltage (B+) is also applied at all times through the RADIO/PHONE fuse to the coil side of the high/low beam headlight relay via CKT 40 (ORN/BLK). Both relays are controlled by the PZM at separate output cavities.

When the headlamp switch is in the HEAD position, the instrument cluster headlamp switch input is grounded through CKT 10 (YEL) and the headlamp switch. The instrument cluster sends a request through the Class 2 serial data line to the BCM in order to active the low beam headlamps. The BCM supplies positive battery voltage (B +) to the coil side of the headlamp relay via CKT 352 (WHT). The coil receives ground through the headlamp switch via CKT 10 (YEL). The coil of the headlamp relay is then energized, closing the switch contacts. Battery positive voltage (B +) is then applied through the high/low beam headlamp relay via CKT 1346 (LT BLU) and the L HDLP LO fuse and R HDLP LO fuse via CKT 12 (TAN) to the left and the right low beam headlamps respectively.
This may sound pretty complex .

My low beam headlights will not come on! My daylight running lights work during the day and I have high beams but at night I have nothing but high beams ???


Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied through the LH underhood fuse block LCM/HDLP circuit breaker via CKT 242 (RED) at all times to the following components:
?€¢
Headlamp switch


?€¢
Lamp control module (LCM)


?€¢
Switch of the RH IP fuse block headlamp relay position J

When the headlamp switch is placed in the ON position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 10 (YEL) to the coil of the headlamp relay position J. The coil is permanently grounded to G201 via CKT 1450 (BLK). The coil is energized and the contacts close providing battery positive voltage (B+) to the headlamp dimmer switch via CKT 1346 (LT BLU). When the headlamp dimmer switch is in the LOW position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 12 (TAN) to the following components:
?€¢
Left low beam headlamp


?€¢
Right low beam headlamp The LCM provides battery positive voltage (B+) via CKT 1346 (LT BLU) through the headlamp dimmer switch to the headlamps under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates darkness.

The lamp control module (LCM) monitors the ambient light conditions through the ambient light sensor. The ambient light sensor is a variable resistor whose resistance changes as the surrounding ambient light level changes. As the ambient light decreases, the resistance of the ambient light sensor increases. The LCM measures the resistance across the ambient light sensor and determines whether it is day or night.

Oldsmobile intrigue problems


The switch is bad >
Each headlamp is individually fused so that battery voltage is applied to the individual lamps at all times through circuit 1640 for the LH headlamps and through circuit 1740 for the RH headlamps. When the headlamp switch is in HEAD, the ground is applied directly to headlamp switch through circuit 1750. When the headlamp switch is placed in LOW, ground is applied to the low beam headlamps through circuit 1201. When the headlamp switch is placed in HIGH, ground is applied to the high beam lamps and to the high beam indicator through circuit 1200. The high beam indicator is fused so that battery voltage is applied at all times through circuit 640.

Headlights will not shut off after the car has been shut off the only way to shut them off is to disconnect the battery


Your vehicle is equipped with an "Auto Lamp" system. The headlamps will stay on for as long as 3 minutes depending on how you have the control set. If you are certain that this is not the problem and/or your headlamps will not turn off after 3 minutes, perform these checks:

1. CHECK HEADLAMP SWITCH OPERATION
Ensure that the headlamp switch is off. Disconnect the headlamp switch connectors. If the headlamps go foff, replace the headlamp switch. If the headlamps are still on, go to the next step.

2. CHECK CIRCUIT No. 15
Remove autolamp parking lamp relay from the under hood Power Distribution Center (PDC), near the battery. If the headlamps are off, go to the next step. If the headlamps are still on, repair the short to battery voltage in circuit No. 15 (RED/YELLOW wire).

3. CHECK AUTOLAMP RELAY GROUND CIRCUIT
Remove the autolamp parking light relay from the PDC. Measure the resistance between ground (BATTERY NEGATIVE) and terminal No. 2 (DARK BLUE/ORANGE wire) at the autolamp relay wiring harness connector. If resistance is 5 Ohms or less, continue to the next step. If the resistance is more than 5 Ohms, replace the autolamp relay.

4. CHECK THE LIGHT SENSOR AMPLIFIER
Reconnect all components. Disconnect the light sensor amplifier located in the defroster grille on the top of the dash. If the headlamps are off, replace the light sensor amplifier. If the headlamps are on, repair short to ground in circuit No. 218 (WHITE/PURPLE wire) to the headlamp switch.

How do I adjust the headlights on a 2002 buick Century?


  1. Step 1 Purchase a replacement bulb from an auto parts department or auto parts store. The bulb number is 4157NAK. You also can check the parts book or ask store employee for assistance.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of the vehicle. The hood release handle is located under the dash on the left side of the vehicle. Once you discharge it, you must free the second hood release under the hood of the vehicle in the center. Move it to the right and lift the hood.
  3. Step 3 Locate two headlamp retainers (clamps) holding the headlamp in place. Pull up to remove them to discharge the tabs on the assembly.
  4. Step 4 Detach the power to the headlamp. Now you can easily remove the assembly out of its position.
  5. Step 5 Take off the rubber cover located in back of the turn signal light. This will allow access to the bulb socket.
  6. Step 6 Turn the light socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly.
  7. Step 7 Remove the old bulb by holding the bottom of it and pulling it gently up. Replace with new bulb.
  8. Step 8 Once you have replaced the bulb, put the light socket back in the assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.
  9. Step 9 Replace the rubber covering on the back of the headlamp assembly.
  10. Step 10 Put the headlamp assembly back in place by sliding it in the slot and attach the power supply.
  11. Step 11 Replace the retainer clamps to hold the headlight assembly in place and close the hood of the vehicle.

How do I replace headlamp bulb?


Some imports require the entire light assembly to be removed in order to replace headlamps. Look to see if there are angled rods on the back side of the light assembly. If so, see if the can be pulled straight up towards the hood of the car. When they are released the headlight will be able to come forward. Good luck. Hope this helps.
