My low beams will not turn off when the car is off, or turn the auto light switch off. I replaced the bulbs and fuses, and they are still stuck on. When i turn the auto light switch off, all my other lights go out, parking lights, dash lights etc. but the low beams stay on. They are supposed to turn off 20 seconds after the car is shut off and alarm is set, they are not doing so, therefore draining my battery. I am being forced to unhook my positive charge each time I get out of the

Turned ignition key to ''start'', nothing. Had towed to garage, they determined tail light switch stuck. Replaced, charged battery and it worked. Drove home six miles and parked. Next morning went to start and in ''start'' position nothing but buzzer. Replaced battery with another and same. Put auto trans in neutral, same. Went from ''park'' to neutral several times and nothing. Not even ignition ''on'' buzzer.

2006 hyundai sonata, parking and tail lights stay lit when car is turned off and light switch is in the off position. the only way to turn the lights off is to lock the car. i've had it to the dealership 3 times and they cant seem to figure it out. if i don't check everytime i leave the car, the battery will drain and i'd need a jump. does anyone know why this is happening and what will fix it??? i'm ready to get rid of this car. the a/c and headlamps also sort of pulse as well. i'm beginning to

I just found my 1998 outback with the parking lights on and the battery nearly drained. The key was out of the ignition, the light switch was in the OFF position. Nothing else worked so I removed fuse #31 that feeds the light switch. The lights went off but came back on as soon as I replaced the fuse. The fuse is out while I charge the battery, but pulling the fuse every time I stop somewhere is going to be inconvenient, to say the least.

Light indicator I have a light coming on in dashboard by the battery gage, it's a symbol of what appears to be an engine but it doesn't specify what I don't have the manuel so I'm not sure what it is, I have been parking it in my brother n laws steep driveway and did drive it from florida to connecticut for a vacation and I have been using it as my primary mode of transportation, before the trip I changed the oil. I checked the engine oil and it does seem kind of low but my gages in dash seem no


First off check all your gauges and make sure they are all safe. Check all fluids! If it's running good it could be just a bad O2 sensor. Dodge engines usually burn a little oil to cut down being in warmer climates you can put 5w 30 or 10w 30 in ... 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

My 04 Trailblazer just had body work that required the battery to be disconnected. When I picked up the car. it seemed to be fine. After driving it in the rain for two days.the power door locks and dome lights started comming on and off continously when driving. The security alarm would sound after the car was parked for hours. Now the interior lights stay on unless I manualy turn them off at the dash switch. Seems to do all more so when the weather is raining. Any suggestions?

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

2003 GMC Sierra....The headlights wont come on. They come on when I put the key in and just turn it like to turn on the radio. But as soon as I start the engine they go out. This is true with having the switch on auto or manually turning them on. The park lights seem to be working just fine.

My trooper is on an island, so not easy to get an auto electrician there. The problem is no power at all in spite of a good battery, good connections, testing 12volts plus as far as where the negative earth strap is fastened to the chassis, and also the positive lead where bare. No ignition, no lights, no radio, all which I think would normally work if ignition switch or starter motor was faulty. Fuses all checked except sealed units.. could they be the culprits?
