Have you figured out the problem?

    My question has nothing to do with car alarms. When you turn on the headlights, the daytime running lights turn off, & high & low beams will not come on.

Tip

In order to replace the bulbs,the headlight assemblies need to be removed from t


On late model LINCOLN TOWN CARS In order to replace the bulbs,the headlight assemblies need to be removed from the car.The following instructions make it easy.
The grill has a top cover with clips that are unscrewed.There are about 6 of them.After cover removal,remove the headlight assembly by pulling up on the two metal tabs on each light assembly.or on some 2005 and newer models the few bolts holding in the light assembly.There is an access hole for a 1/4 inch extension to fit through for the bottom bolt.The bolts are 8mm.Then in the middle of the light assembly there is also a plastic tab that must be pushed down with a screwdriver and then the light assembly comes out.Once the electrical connectors are unplugged,the headlight assembly can be removed from the car ,put face down on a towel and disassembled so that the bulbs can be replaced.
The older versions have plastic tabs holding the back covers on,and the newer versions have T 27 torx screws holding the covers together.After the back cover is removed,you will see a collar that holds in the electrical socket that connects to the bulb. mark the collar position with a felt pen.Rotate the collar counterclockwise to remove it.The bulb and socket are then separated and the new bulb installed.Make sure the collar goes on first,as it will not slide over the bulb,only the bulb connector.Seat the new bulb,install the plug onto the bulb then the lock collar and reinstall the back covers.Do not touch the glass bulb surface with your fingers,as the oil will cause the glass to shatter when hot.Handle the bulb by the base only.
Before installing the light assembly into the car plug in the main connectors and check that the light works. If all is o.k., re-install the light into the car.After that, check to make sure that the lock tabs are all in place.Re- install the grill cover and the clips.Make sure that the hole in the grill cover on the driver's side goes over the hood switch for the alarm properly.Check final operation after re-assembly of all pieces.

Headlight turning on after 15min after car off


This is a wild guess that happens to some people: IF YOUR system allows you to turn on the lights from a key fob, SOMETIMES people are sitting on the fob and activating. A simple solution IF this might be the case... other than that there could be interference fromanother source OR a failure of the system.

A LAST consideration is if your battery is getting very weak or terminals are corroded causing an electrical problem to the system.

Chevy starter ignition


This isn't a solution but it should help. Pull the column off and see what color the wires are that go to the ignition switch. Next look under the dash and find the connector that has these wires. Start the truck, reach under the dash and pull the connector apart and see if it dies. If it doesn't then consider the ECM relay is sticking. If it dies when you pull the connector apart, then your ignition switch could be back and is shorting the constant hot to the ignition out allowing the truck to keep running. You can also try pulling the ECM relay when its running and see if it dies. If it does then switch it with another relay, like the headlights if they use the same style relay and turn the headlights on then off and see if they stay on, alone with starting the truck and running it for a period of time then shutting it off and see if it dies or not. Post a comment and let me know if either of these has an effect.

If your vehicle has daytime running lights they will be on when remote started no real way around that try leaving your parking brake on.
The new vipers default setting is constant rather than flashing.
