Hi, Tom if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

How to fix non working headlights


First check your fuses. If ok. Turn your headlight switch and see if rear parking lights turn on. If they do more than likely your headlight switch is not your problem. If running lights dont come on, check your headlight switch operation..

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

Lights wont turn on a 99 silverado


Did you check for power in and out of the headlight switch ?
You should have power on the red and orange wires going into the switch and yellow going out to the dimmer switch.

1998 dodge caravan my headligths wont turn off .the ligths still on even turning the headligts switch off.and the only way to turned off went i take the relay aut.plus my interior lights wont turn on.if...


Hi, try disconnecting the connector from the headlight switch. If this doesn't turn the lights off, the problem is the body control module. If disconnecting the headlight switch DOES turn the lights orff, replace the headlight switch. You can probably get a used body control module from a salvage yard. They may also have the headlight switch, but you can get those at your local parts chain. To access the switch, pull the bezel straight out as shown below. The BCM is behind the fuse panel as shown below. Please let me know if you have any questions, anmd thanks for using FixYa.

Why wont the headlights won't go on


It can have a bad headlight switch, but most often it is a bad high beam switch on the floor.

Turn on the headlights and press the high-beam switch off and on a few times, if the headlights flash, flicker, or start working again then replace the high-beam/dimmer switch.

Headlights wont work properly


Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.

Headlight wont turn on


Sounds like your headlight switch has failed. I have a 99 Audi A4, and when mine died, it was the same exact problem (it's a known problem area for the Audis). Given that your car is behaving the same way, I'd look into a new headlight switch as a solution. The toggle-for-highbeams feature is wired separate from the normal headlight wiring and is a simpler contact setup. The contacts and wiring and switching for the low and running high beams is more prone to failure. You should be able to find a switch assembly at a salvage yard for less than $15 and can probably change it yourself in a half hour to an hour.
