I can not tell you how much you should get a steering column place to repair that. Trust me, you don't want to go there. That is one thing is not worth doing yourself.

1998 buick century only high beams and turn signals work. No headlights. I have checked breakers, relays,fuses,power at headlight switch, power at headlight harness, all are good.


The Buick Century is equipped with a multi-switch. This switch is an all in one switch that controls your cruise control, windshield wipers and turn signals in one switch. This switch also controls dimming and brightening of your headlights. The dimmer switch is simple to replace, and all you need is a phillips head screwdriver to complete the task.

  1. Removing the Steering Column Shroud
    • Removing the dimmer switch starts at the steering column. To plan this task out, access the steering column by removing the screws holding the steering column shroud in place. This will expose the turn signal lever. Remove the lever by twisting it forward, and pulling it out of the switch.
    Removing the Dimmer Switch
    • The switch is held on by two screws and a wiring harness. The wiring harness can be removed by prying up on the locking tabs and pulling the connector out of the socket. The two screws can be removed with a phillips head screwdriver. The switch will slide out. To install a dimmer switch, be sure to repeat these steps in reverse order.

My problem is. when i turn my headlights on i get this constant ringing for at least three or four minutes... my car is a 2001 volkswagen jetta tdi.


The drivers door switch turns on/off the interior lamp BUT it is also used to signal the door open and closed position. So it is not getting a door closed signal either from the door proximity switch or I believe on VW a switch on the locks interior ! Therefore it thinks you have left your H/lights on and exited the vehicle ! Hope this get's you back on the road

Have 2000 VW Jetta, turning signal stops working intermittently. starts signal then stops blinking during turn or sometimes it works fine, sometimes won/t. all bulbs working & all other functions on...


I pulled my switch out of the dash and sprayed it with contact cleaner. Air dry and put back in. 2 years without a problem. If you're not electrical savy, I'm pretty sure there was a recall on that, and it should be replaced for free.

THE AUTOMATIC PILOT DOES NOT WORK


The cruise control is control on the 93-99 VW jettas and golfs by a computer module behind the headlight switch. Its common for these to fail. If you pull out your headlight switch you will see two square boxes, a black box, for the alarm, and a silver box for the cruise control replcae it by removing the cover under the steering wheel and unplugging the silver cruise control computer

Low beam headlights don't work


The problem is in the high beam switch assembly which also houses your turn signals and possibly cruise control, and yes, I'm sure. There are some electrical contacts in the assembly which dis-connect the low beams when you put the high beams on. Constant use of the high beam switch will create arcing on the low beam switch which makes the contacts not conduct electricity anymore. The daytime running lights send power to the low beams on a separate circuit. .

The repair is to either replace the assembly, $300 at dealer, $100 or less do it yourself, or take the assembly apart and clean it for free. (2 hours or less)

P.S. If you own a VW, especially around model years 1999 to 2004, there is a rare but devastating problem with engine coolant being literally pumped through all electrical parts of your car.... destroying it. Repair cost = $8,000. It is called coolant migration. Check your VW right now (takes two seconds, literally), and do a two-minute procedure to fix your car to prevent the problem here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/coolant_migration.htm
