SOURCE: headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works

I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.

1984 montecarlo light don't work when u pull the switch ? And it a new switch ? The bake light works and singles lights work


Headlights being the same age tend to fail around the same time. Sometimes one will go out and you are not aware of it until the other fails. in this case the high beams should work also headlights are on a different fuse from all others.

Headlight problems


If the lights work when moving or holding the high beam switch there is a good possibility the switch itself is bad. The switch is located at the base of the steering collumn. the handle actually only operates a rod that goes into the switch to push it down to switch from high to low beam. The switch is not expensive and easily accessable although you sorta have to stand on your head to reach it.

My Stop lamps do not shine sometimes then sometimes they will work. Is there a shortage in the wiring?


Check the headlight dimmer switch. 95 Luminas have a bad problem with this. Rest of the lights work but not brakes. Try holding brakes and wiggling signal light switch & see if brake light works, if so you need to have switch replaced

hi,
you had specified as, the headlights are not working properly & making a buzz sound.The problem is the circuit has a loose connectivity either at the switch or near the bulb. while you are able to hear the buzzing sound check the position of the wires near the source of sound. You will be able to find where the connectivity should be tightened exactly.please do this as early as possible since the loose connection can damage the circuit and the switches due to high temperature.
thanks, have a nice day.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT multifunction switch problem?


I had the exact same problem, I changed the "ignition switch" because the contacts inside were burned, this is why you see all those troubles coming in and out at different moments. It costed me 150$ to do it myself, buy the switch on an online reseller, must cheaper than the dealer! Now everything is back to normal on my Grand Prix GT 99 exept that my headlights don't light up automatically when starting the car... I have to check my fuse/relay and switch to make sure everything is ok on that side.

Good luck.
