I have a 1999 honda civic headlights are fine but turn signals and break lights can barely be seen during the day


I think I need more details here. Is there a possible issue with the plastic lenses being sun damaged? How old are the battery and alternator? It's possible there is a charging system problem and the alternator is not putting out enough current to the bulbs. Do the wipers work at an adequate speed when it is raining hard? When the alternator starts to fail the wipers will start to slow down.

My '93 lexus headlights won't turn on. if I hold the switch to "flash" the high beams, the lights are on, but just to drive at night or during the rain, nothing lights.


Go to your local auto parts store and buy some new ones. They will help you put them in. It sounds like you lost the low beams. When the low beams go out the high beams will still work. It just sounds to me like the bulbs are out. if not they shouldn't charge you for the bulbs.

My headlights is moisturing every time it rains or car wash


Normally the headlights are sealed and filled with an inert gas. The reason for the moisturizing may be due to damaged seal, that's causing it.
There is a large variety of attractive aftermarket covers available for the steering wheel; you can always opt for them.

Headlights won't turn on in my 1999 ford mustang gt


Sounds as though you have an exposed electrical connection that's either getting splashed from the tires, or the moisture is creating a temporary disconnection. This can happen, but once it dries it will resume working. I would have your electrical system checked. I would also have your headlight switch checked for a possible short.

2002 mazda protege5 blows headlights weekly usaually after a rain


it sounds like the headlight housing has a leak where the lens and the housing are joined. when it rains the water is going down in to your light housing and contacting your light bulb when you are driving. you can get a tube of clear silicone and run a bead all the way around the housing. also want to make sure you are putting the seal back in place when you are replacing the light bulb. good luck.

Wiring Short?


hi
im dave
im not sure which ground you cleaned and changed but i would start with the oone closest to the problem area. Look under the kick panel at your left ankle or under the dash where the light switch is. Is your floor wet after these rains along that sidewall where your left foot would be? Could be you have a leak in the windshiel allowing water in there and shorting your ground.
let me know how this goes
