Question about 1994 Geo Metro
Turned on headlights and after a min or two they went out and I can't find the problem. All fuses are good. Have power to head lights so believe switch is on ground side of lights. All other lights work ie rear and parking lights. Checked out headlight switch and that seems OK, belive problem is between switch and ground. Is there a in-line fusable wire link or something I'm missing? Thanks
Hmmmm sounds like you are on the right track with the ground . with as much current as headlights pull it is possible that the intermittent open you are experiencing has to do with heat coming from an open in the wiring . i believe your best bet would be to locate a wiring diagram for your cars headlight circuit and inspect every wire in that circuit as well as one surrounding for thing like : burn marks , corrosion , places where insulation has worn off or is no longer even there ( :) ) ,and i believe you may find something . also , some cars come with a set of relays specifically for the headlights . these the headlights may be drawing extra current through the relay causing it to switch off (means headlights are bad ) , or the relay itself may have worn out over time (relay (s) may be bad ). i hope this helps you
