Passenger windshield wiper and passenger window, not working. Also, Driver side headlight & Driving light stopped working. Replaced the bulb for the main sealed headlight, and the bulb turns on after a few second delay, but it seems to be the high beam that's turning on on that side only. Also, when the car is parked and locked up, the Driver Headlight will occasionally turn on at random, and stay on for up to 10 minutes at a time. Did the car have a stroke or something? lol

Soounds like you have a wire problem. Look under your dash at the headlight switch and the connector for any melting....repair as necessary. Look also around the headlight wiring....sounds like you have a wire that is shorting out. ... 1985 Jeep Cherokee

Headlight problem My car is running DRL's (daytime running lights) at night. When I turn on the switch that usually turns on the regular low beams, it turns on the high beams instead and I can't turn them off. I have to turn off the lights to turn off the high beams. This also turns off the backlight which lights the gauges, so I can't monitor my speed at night. The lights were working fine the previous night.


Its sounds like the either the headlamp switch or the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch may be separate from the multi-function lever or you may have to get the whole thing replaced. ... 2007 Volkswagen GTI

I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee and my headlights wont turn on. my parking breaks and all other lights work. i can "flash" my high beams, but they wont come on if i click them forward. I am not able to do it anymore, but at one point if i repeatedly turned on and off/ twisted my headlight knob i was able to get them to stay on for a little. I was told when i am trying to turn them on and off, that there is small/faint amount of light coming on.


The problem is in the headlight switch mounted on the column. pretty easy to change part a little expensive not too too bad. remove the upper and lower covers on the column probably a philips or a star bit to remove the screws that hold it together. ... Jeep Cherokee

Problem with headlights- only works on High beam. Is it possible to replace the bulb for low beam only or do I have to change the whole unit? basically, can it be repaired or do I need to buy a competely new unit. Another thing, the other headlight also packed up a week after. Does their packing up at roughly the same time indicate anything? Finally, i hear some crackling sounds when turning (sharp turns) on the left-hand side front wheel. What could the problem be?
