Bad headlight socket


... 2002 Suzuki XL-7

My front turning signal flashers don't flash. The bulbs stay lit when the headlights are on, but don't flash, so the bulbs are good and making contact. The dash and rear signals flash rapidly. I cleaned the sockets to make sure there is no corrosion. Would it be the flasher module is bad even though the rear still flashes?

My headlights are both out. I was having trouble with them before they went out. The high beams sometimes would turn themselves on and the headlights would turn themselves on when the car was off. I took it to a mechanic and he told me I had after market headlights that have burned the sockets so I'd have to replace the headlights, the sockets and he'd have to rewire the lights. Does this all sound reasonable?


Although it is feasible that the aftermarket lights burnt the sockets, that would not cause the lights to turn on by themselves - a faulty switch would cause that. Inspect the wires that plug into the headlights - if they are not melted or burnt then ... 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

Radio sound drops off when headlights go on in a 1990 XJ6. I am thinking a bad ground but where to start looking? Perhaps a bad light switch? Comments: Aug 12, 2009 - Will try this weekend...and you are referring to the headlight ground and not any ground at the headlight switch...correct? I find that the headlights burn out too often...maybe replaced annually... Aug 12, 2009 - this appears to be worthwhile and I will try this coming weekend.... No improvement

My 2010 dodge grand caravan headlights do not work. When I turn the van on the headlights blink on and off 5 times then remain off. When I turn the ignition key without even starting the van the headlights will do the same on and off. Is it a bad ignition? Is it a bad light switch? Is it a spliced ground wire somewhere in headlight wire harness? Please help.

I have automatic headlamps activated, and the headlight switch will not activate the headlamps (low beam). Parking brake switch is OK.

Hi. I have a '88 Hiace. Recently, very occasionally the headlights failed to work. If i switched the switch on and off a couple of times, they would come on. The other night, i smelt a bad electrical burning smell and saw wisps of smoke coming up through the dash. The headlights then failed to come on regardless of what i did. No fuses are blown. I have discovered upon inspection, that the headlight relay has burned out. Finding the replacement part is not easy! What concerns me however, is t
