SOURCE: head lamp keeps burning out. replaced head lamp at

You either have a bad ground or the bad electrical connection at the light socket is "simulating" a bad ground. This is putting a high resistance on the bulb and it's taking it's toll by burning out the bulb. I would start with a new socket, and CHECK the ground. If you still have the issue, I would run another complete ground wire and not even worry about checking the ground itself. the Stick

SOURCE: Trying to disconnect old wiring

The head light assembly comes out in one piece. There are two clips (usually white or black) in the frame just behind the headlights. Pull them up and the assembly will pull forward. Made this way to replace the bulbs. On some models the assembly will stick at the corner, this is just a plug holding it, tug on it and it will come loose and wont break.

Neither headlights working or fog lights any ideas please


First check for blown fuses (a blown fuse indicates there is a short in the lighting circuit ) and check any defective relays. When vehicles are operated with the fog lights on all the time this causes the wiring for the associated circuit(s) to operate at a higher temperature and eventually it will result in a burned out non-conductive connection. Usually the wire(s) burn out where they are connected to switches, at the headlamps, fog lamps etc... Also check for a burned out connection or a melted terminal contact board used for the high beam-low beam switch which is usually located inside the steering column.
Good luck.

What makes the jeep grand Cherokee limited dash lights flicker


The auto head lamp light sensor is connected ahead of the instrument light feed. Maybe, just maybe, that sensor is doing quirky things to the instrument lamp power feed and other interior lamps as well

Short circuit in Stratoliner passing lamps


Hi, Doug you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away from the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

My gpz500s keeps blowing the lighting fuse, on start up (with lights switched on) any idea's as to what may be causing this?


assuming it is the correct amp fuse there is possibly a short in the system somewhere.
check for broken wires, often jammed by the steering head, damage to the switch blocks, or the head lamp or tail bulb can short out inside, remove these one at a time and see if this helps

I experienced a recent front end collision. After replacing the right head lamp assembly the lamp is very dim when on. I switched out lamps - connected right (dim) lamp with the left and it lights...


Sounds like a bad Earth connection. Check for a poor/loose Earth wire bolt inside the engine bay near the head lights. Also check any of the plastic block connectors in the wiring loom for the head lights. Sometimes the metal spade connections are not secured properly within the plastic block and can be pushed back when the plastic blocks are joined together.

I have turn signals marker lights interior light brake back up but no head lamps


Electrical problems at times are hard to diagnose without being present. If all other lights are working i would start by checking fueses and relays. If your fues for the head light circuit is burnt out you have a wire that is shorted to ground. Do you know that both bulbs are known to be good? If everything else seems to be ok I would check the switch by getting a manual with an electrical schematics. By locating the head lamp circuit and test the wires coming out of the switch for power with a test light or multi meter. You can probe the back of the connectors with a paper clip. If no power is present when switch is operated it should probably be replaced.

Brake light work fine as longs as the head lights are off. Once you turn on the head lights the brakes with the exception of the center light on top.


Check the bulb sockets, it is common on these vans that water gets into the bulb sockets and shorts out the socket. You may need to replace the sockets to get them to work again. Also check the bulbs as these are dual filament bulbs, when your lights are off and you step on the brake it lights the parking lamp filament. However as the lights are on the brake lights may seem to not work as the parking lamps are already on.
