After much research it seems that it is due to a faulty front control module or body control module...the part is located under the hood on the driver's side. . disconnected it and found that it was very dirty - with grit like material -- he used an air hose and blew it clean, checked connections and put it back in. He has had to do this twice. .the part

Both low-beam headlights won't come on and malfunction light is on.


Try jiggling your turn signal/ high beam switch. I have seen these fail and cause problems. Not a cheap part either.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1994 Pontiac Grand am Tailights all work normaly except when the headlights are on and then they don't work at all?


Could be the headlight switch.
The switch has two sets of contacts for the parking lights, the park position and headlight position.
You may need to check the circuit at the switch to see if you are loosing power when the switch is moved from park to head.

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work


First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/97ecoog1e.pdf

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

Is it possible for a light switch circut in the switch to go bad only in the park light position? headlights work,


You say that the headlights work. The parking lights don't. My question is...are the parking lights working properly when the headlights are on? If they are working in conjunction with the headlights, but won't work independently, then the problem might lie in the switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a fault - parkling bulb failure


I believe the parking lights are the lights that come on when you move the headlight switch to the middle setting. My S60 has 3 settings for headlights, daytime running lights (off or 9 o clock position), parking light (middle or 10:30 position), and lights on (top or 12 o clock position). Put your light switch into the middle position and check the lights from the front of you car. They are usually located on the side of the headlights and are orange. If the fault is on, you have a bulb out (most likely) or loose wire connection (not as likely).

Headlights won't come on


With the headlight switch pull to the on position (parking lights working - headlights won't come on), can you flash the lights to high beam. If so, you have a bad switch in the stearing columb. I had that problem on a 94 Ram 1500.
