Answers :

Hold you hand on the light switch after a while of driving with the lights on and see if it is getting hot. If it is replace it, if it doesn't seem to be hot, you still might want to replace it. There is a terminal in the back of the light switch that melts so be prepared to go to the junk yard and cut another one off, but make sure that you solder the repacement one in since wire connectors will only heat back up and do the same thing again.

My 2001 dodge caravan sport has headlight issues. It is equipped with daytime running lights and also driving/fog lights below. The problem is that one of my headlights burned out so I replaced it. That did not solve the problem. Only one headlight will come on at a time wether on low or high beam. They switch from low beam on daytime running on the passenger side to low beam on the drivers side when lights are manually turned on by driver . Not sure if relay is faulty or something in computer?

I have a 91 Dodge Caravan LE 3.3 liter V6 engine, The long story on what problems I have had with this car is as follows. The first thing that happened was I had a fusable ling burn out on the van, this I found was connected with the Cooling fan, the bearing went out on the fan causing the fan to draw excessive current burning out the fusible link. This also had caused the alternator to burn up. The problem was not known till I made a short trip back in April, and on this trip the van over heate

1991 Volvo 940SE Turbo headlights shut off, sometimes come back on after a while. Hi-beams work fine. My headlights work fine, then suddenly they'll both go out, and I have to switch to hi-beams. After a while (never the same timeframe), I can switch back and they'll be working. I'm looking for where the headlight relay is to replace that, then go from there. Any ideas on this problem- if replacing relay will correct it, and if so, where that relay is located? Many thanks in advance!!!

The headlights on my 87 toyota pickup have been acting funny since it was in an accident last april or so. The headlights don't work unless the switch is in the high beam position. However, the high beam indicator light doesn't come on, although the high beams are what is active. I replaced the headlight relay a few weeks back and it made no difference. One of the employees at the auto store said it sounded like it was the headlight switch that was causing the problem. This makes seems likely bu

On a Canadian 2004 Dodge caravan (with daytime running lights) the daytime running lights no longer come on when the vehicle is started. When the headlight switch is turned on the headlights do not work either. The windshield washer pump has also stopped working.

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. When you open door locks with key remote, the drivers side headlight does not come on. When you turn on the headlights, the drivers side headlight does not come on. If I turn on high beams, the headlight comes on. I then go back to low beam and the headlight stays on.


To me it seems that the dipper switch is the culprit as the lights turn on only when you use the high beam. If you keep the high beam on and then use the key remote, try and see if the driver side lights come on. Turn the vehicle off with the dipper ... 2007 Dodge Ram Truck

The main control switch is ineffective and has already been replaced. Sometimes turning ignition off & back on will help, sometimes not.

Headlight problems I have a 2002 chevy silverado. I can't get either of my headlights to come on. When I turn my switch to manually turn on the headlights my tailights come on but no headlights. My high beam indicator is constantly on and won't turn off even if I pull the lever back. I have changed out my headlight relay because it looked burnt and have checked all the fuses in the fuse box and they are all fine. All the bulbs appear to be fine too.


Hi. That sounds like the Low/high beam switch is malfunctioning and in need of replacement. I believe this because the headlights will not come on no matter which power source is attempting to activate them. Clearly, they are not getting power. ... 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
