1998 f-150: While driving, my parking break light turned on, then the air bag light turned on. Shortly after my head lights dimmed. 5 minutes later all of my gages bottomed out to 0. One minute later the truck died. The interior lights would not turn on but the bed light did turn on. I tried starting it up agin and it would not turn over it made a click, ckick, click sound. Is it the altenator?? Computer??? Thanks for your time.

Can not get my tail lights to work onk 1989 gmc truc


The front park lights work correct? If the front park lights work than there is not a problem with the light switch since the brown wire from the switch supplies power to the front park lights, front side markers, and the rear taillights. There should be twelve volts on the brown wire from the headlight switch with the connector plugged in and the park lights turned on. If this is true that there is a problem with the wiring to the back of the vehicle. A thorough inspection of the harness should reveal the problem. The dim break and blinkers support the above. High resistance also know as corrosion, in the wires or connections would cause this problem.

Headlights dim after approx 5 minutes, then no further problem


Sounds like it's losing power somewhere from a loose connection. Clean and re-tighten the battery cable connections, check all the grounds you can find. Check alternator and starter connections for tightness. Get the trouble codes from the engine computer to see if they show anything helpful.
Good luck.

My service air bag light is on in a 2005 escalade, how do i reset it?


If the air bag light is on, the system has detected a current fault. You could reset it with a scanner but it will return shortly. The system will have to be scanned, the codes pulled and then diagnosed from there. Keep in mind the air bag system is turned off when this light is on.

My 2005 Chevy Impala's power stearing problem?


From the sounds of it, that pothole messed up your steering. Something is binding in the steering train, could be a damaged tie rod end, one of the other steering joints, or even the rack and pinion steering itsself. When it's binding, the power steering pump has to work too hard, slowing the engine down, making your lights dim because it's also slowing the alternator(on the same belt drive) and furthering your steering problem. You need to get it checked out immediately before something breaks and gets you into an accident. Remember, if steering linkage breaks, you have NO control of your vehicle, and it doesn't care if you're driving 70 mph on the highway.

Dash lights, starting, heater blower, head lights & blinker


Before going crazy with this, check all engine and body grounds to make sure everything is connected. it's possible something was left a bit loose when doing cylinder heads. Wont hurt to go over the positive battery and alternator connections as well!
