How do i disable high beams on a 2006 pontiac grand prix
You find a wiring diagram for the headlight system for an '06 grand prix, and then you get into the maze of wiring for this vehicle. It isn't like the old times when you had a headlight switch with a built-in circuit breaker, a dimmer switch, and the headlight bulbs, maybe a fuse for parks, sometimes a relay in the circuit, but it was simple and easy to figure out. Nowadays, your GP will certainly have a Body Control Module that controls the lighting. There may also be a lighting control module, or not, depending on the capabilities of the BCM. And there could also be a Daytime Running Lights module, which just makes it just a LITTLE bit more complicated, every day.
I know because my son's '05 Buick century has this very intermittent problem of the headlights disappearing for seconds at a time, and once for days at a time. So he ran over a bump and the headlights just began working again as if nothing wrong. And now for about 10 days, there has not been a repeat. But when it happens again, I will have to get my head back into the dreaded headlight circuit !
Now why would you want to disable the high beams, even as a temporary measure?
