Headlights go out when I turn on my bright lights


So low beams work but high beams don't after installing a stereo? If you disconnect the stereo does the issue go away? If so wired incorrectly. Also check fuse and relay after wiring correctly

I have a 98 Honda accord I installed a stereo and now the speedomoter lights won't light up?? How do I fix this?? Also the lights on the shifter went out.


There is a dimmer switch to the left of the steering wheel that controls this and also controls the lights in your factory stereo, first make sure it is turned on and your headlights are on, turn up the relay dimmer. If this doesn't work, ask the person that hooked up your stereo to retrace his steps as the stereo may have been the common connection for this and now removed it won't complete the circuit.

I hooked up a dual radio to my 1987 dodge ram the radio comes on but no sound and the dash lights went out


Sounds like you have the stereo ground wired into the wire that dims the light on the factory stereo when the headlights turn on. Rewire stereo with proper ground, check all other wiring to insure it's done properly,replace blown fuses for lights & stereo. Should be good to go.

Either...
bad stereo or bad installment if its after market. if so they might tapped into the headlight circuit and when you tunr on the lights it deprives the stereo power.

Wiring harness picture needed for 1993 Nissan Altima. When headlights turned on, stereo shuts off.


Nissan change their color codes on their harnesses all the time , a diagram won't be much use.
What has happened is that Nissan has a wire that appears to be an earth in the stereo harness , but goes live when the headlights are turned on ( it is there for the factory stereo to dim the lights when the headlights are turned on.)
Easiest way to connect stereo is to use a Multitester set on 20 volts to find Power , Accessory and earth wires, remembering to turn your lights on and off each time to check for the Nissan sneaky wire. ( You are lucky, I have seen whole looms go up in smoke because of that wire )
To isolate the individual speaker wires, solder a couple of wires to a AA battery and " flash " it across the pairs of suspected speaker wires while listening for a " Crackle " from the speakers, this is a handy way to figure out which wires go to each speaker without having to pull the doors apart to look.
Happy Fixing Marshall

Removing the whole pop head lights assembly from my 1997 corvette


Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise.
Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers,
Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight,
Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed,
If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.

Radio/dvd/cd not working since battery died


alot of newer cars have an anti theft system for the radio and when you lose power you have to enter a code into the radio so you may have to call the dealership to get it

Car stereo


First make sure you haven't turned the dash lights down so low that you can't tell that they are on. After that look for a wire coming from your headlight switch that is disconnected. Your headlight switch is also a "dimmer" switch and a separate power wire is probably required to operate this dimmer switch connected to your dash lights (including the lights in your stereo) you have probably ran this variable wire to your stereo and inadvertantly disconnected your dash lights.
