I would check the light switch and the dimer switch and see if that's the problem

You may need to replace the switch in the steering column/dash (wherever it is mounted). There is also a fuse under the dash/glove compartment - if it's blown, this may be affecting it as well. Also, check to ensure the harness for each headlight is securely inserted to the bulb. Turn headlights on and also check to see that all running lights are on and opporable, as well as hazards, blinkers and any other additional lights such as "fog" lights etc if equipped.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Daytime running lights not working


Assuming this is an LX, check 7.5A fuses 9 and 5 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box. Fuse 9 applies power to the DRL indicator light in the gauge assembly which connects to the DRL control unit. Fuse 5 supplies power to the DRL control unit when the ignition is on. Also check 100A fuse 41 in the underhood fuse/relay box which supplies power to the headlight relays. Setting the headlight switch to HEAD causes the headlight relays to close and apply power through 20A fuses 45 and 43 in the underhood fuse/relay box to the low beams. Low beam power also passes through the DRL diode to close the high beam cut relay and prevent high beam use during DRL operation.

Where is circuit breaker for headlamps on a 1989 caprice


The breaker for the headlights is inside the headlight switch.
You should have a fuse and relay for the horn.
Could be a problem with the wiring harness for the steering column.

2007 pontiac grand prix headlights are not working correctly. High beams work but not low beam. nothing works on automatic. Low beam bulbs have been replaced. Lights worked for one day, then back to not...


I drive a 07 Grand Prix and the low beams randomly went out. Could not get them to come back on, but all of the other lights worked (inside, parking, and high beams). found a forum online that recommended replacing the fuse/thing at location #35 in the fuse box under the hood. It worked immediately!! Got the part at Advanced Auto parts for $35 dollars.

Head lights cut off when I cut on high beams..98 Dakota


Check to see if you have a special fuse for the High

test it.
