I HAVE A 2001 AURORA. SEEMS TO HAVE A GROUND PROBLEM SOMEWHERE. HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD ALL LIGHTS WENT OUT. LOST POWER STEERING THEN THE CAR QUIT. STARTED LATER AND EVERY THING IS FINE. HAVE NOTICED SOMETIMES A LIGHT WILL GO OUT THEN WILL BE FINE LATER. THEN SOME TIMES A DIFFERENT LIGHT WILL GO OUT. ANY HELP WITH THIS WOULD BE GREAT. JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO START.

Clean your battery terminals-lift the rear seat, the battery is under the passenger seat, disconnect the terminals (both), use a wire brush and get the cable lugs shiny on the inside, where they clamp onto the battery terminals. Then clean the battery posts, hoop up the positive cable first, then the negative cable-while you are there, look at the negative cable and make sure it other end is tight and not rusted where it connects to the body.

Hi all i have 2001subaru impreza headlights play up sometimes they went out a few seconds when i idicate left anyone there know whats wrong as my local mechanic gave up.very grateful


Sounds like a switch/stalk connection problem on your steering column. That's about the only place both sets of controls are co-located.

Although a different car, I had a dip/flash steering stalk control break. Every time I went over a bump, the headlights would flash, whether lights were turned on or off.

I have a 2001 Nissan Xterra and the light flicker and abs light flickers when i hit bumps in the road what could be the problem?


It sounds like a loose ground wire, which one, I can't tell you. If its in the dash, there are ground wires connected to the car frame. You probably find it by looking under the drivers dash. It will be a wire connected to the frame by a screw or nut. Just tighten it up, and should solve the problem. also check the power plug to the gauges and make sure its tight. Best I can do.

One of my driving lights went out after hitting a bump on a dirt road, how do I replace the bulb? It's not the headlight, it's the driving light or fog light.

Yoy can jump the truck off, but wile you are


It is probably a loose ground wire. If it only does it while hitting bump, then there is a loose wire somewhere. It may be loose fuse but probably loose wire or solder joint going to dash control board

When I hit a bump in my 99 aurora the rear and dash lts go out


Check the body controller above the driver kick panel left side of the panel . This may have a connector problem . Possibly melted connector. Or there is a ground loose somewhere in that area.
