SOURCE: Headlights go dim when try

The headlight is supposed to turn off when you push the starter button. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. If there is no power going to the solenoid you can try disassembling and cleaning the button. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes.

SOURCE: spark plug gap 2003 honda

Thank you for the inquiry.
Plugs these days come pre-gapped. They use part numbers to tell the gap in them. My suggestion would be to switch over to the Bosch 4419's. If you've looked at the Bosch plugs you would see they have 4 ground electrodes on them I think the would be bear to gap. They come pre-gapped and it even says so right on the little spark plug box. You can purchase Bosch 4419's at the local Auto-zone Store and save a bunch of money. You will not regret the performance.
Kind regards,
TF

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

No power to headlight or starter every thing else is working


You need to replace your starter button/right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch that first turns off the headlight and then activates the starter solenoid.
