SOURCE: when i switch my heater

Take blower motor out 3 screws and unplug push gas pedal down and remove assembly take 2 screws ot of the back of assembly and separate black backing from assembly. If you used drik holder on dash most likely you had a spill from time to time. When assembly is opened look into gap armature where 2 brushes make contact is probably black take sandpaper and put into hole at contact point where brushes hit and rotate motor by hand until copper is exposed do not push to hard just enough to remove residue. reasemble in the reverse order you to it out. Plug in to harness and try it out before install to confirm it is working.

SOURCE: Brake problem

sounds like the brake switch is faulty if you lower the plastic trim panel under the dash and then look up under you will see the switch on the brake pedal lever there will be two switches there one for the cruise control ( easy to spot this has rubber hoses on it) and one with wires going to it replace this one and it should cure both probs

Corolla 2006- both driving headlights dont work,dims work. brights work if lever is pulled back, bulbs have been tested .wiring appears to be fine . all other lights,indicators are fine. car is drive

as positioning the lever in certain positions allows the lights to work then the problem will most likely be in the light switch itself. Replace the light switch unit.

With headlights on, random occasional issue with interior lights (dash/stereo). They go from dim to bright, as if I had turned off the headlights. Don't believe headlights actually go off during this....

do a meter test on the battery test it with no lights on and no engine running should show 12.5volts. now do the same with engine running should be around 13-14 volts on idle if under 12 volts when engine is running or spikes in power were by keeps jumping up and down on the volts then the alienator is at fault. if all is fine. then you will need to check the earth's one under the battery. check them are good and clean. then there is the light switch and fuse you need to check them. look at the fuse if intacted. test it and at same time flick the fuse see if it stays good. failing all them and nothing wrong there must be a fault with the main line some were and that is going to take some finding. could be any were from the main fuse to each light unit.

Dash lights wont work when my95 acura is on but i have after market security and that makes them flash when locked or unlocked and it flashs but when car is turned on and lights are turned on the dont work...

there are like 15 lights, idiot lights and park/dim.
are all idiot lamps out, or just the parkings.
like CEL, Charge, Oil, Brake,
if the main warning lights are all out, key on, and engine runs
and head lights are full bright.
then you blew a fuse, as always, check fuses first.

My 98 lumina has a constant power draw from somewhere. I just replace the battery and had the alt tested (it was good). I have to jump the dang thing every morning but if I drive it enough during the day...

The alternator may charge fine but could drain the battery through a bad diode,have you checked the alt for a bad diode?Disconnect the battery positive cable.Put a regular 12v test light between the battery positive post and the positive battery cable.If the test light is bright you do have a drain,if dim it is OK.A dim light may mean the drain is internal in the battery.If you do have a bright light remove a fuse ,one at a time from the fuse box until the light goes dim.Once dim you have identified the bad circuit.If removing all fuses do not dim the light,disconnect the alt charging wire at the alt,if that dims the light,then you do have a bad diode.DO NOT create a drain(bright light) when checking for the drain by turning on the key or opening a door/trunk etc.
Also,do an overnight battery check by disconnecting the battery overnight,if things are fine the next morning after the battery was disconnected then it is a drain in the vehicle,if the battery is dead even after being disconnected overnight,,then the battery is bad.

Headlights work on bright but not on dim

The dim ones are the parklights..........just a few questions first before diagnosing......when you put the switch to have no lights on ???? is the back lights on, number plate lights ??????..if not, could be the fuse blown for that cicuit......or get this....2 x blown globes...i have had this before......both globes dont work, and i diagnose for 2 hours, and find that I have both globes blown....because 1 globe does 2 circuits, the bright ones could work, but the parklights fail.......

Turn signal, dont work, emergeny flahers work

first you need to check the ground connection of the tail lamp, poor ground connection might be the cause. about the turn signal, clean the turn switch using contact cleaner spray. If this cannot solve the problem. The switch have to dissmantle and service manually.
