... 2008 Chevrolet Malibu

I have a 2002 Buick lesabre. When I start the car the head lights come on and the Dash lights are Dimmed. If I push the Twilight Sentinal switch all the way down the head lights turn off and the dash lights get bright. As soon as I shift into reverse the dash lights go dim even with though the head lights off. I can barely read the radio shift position and the odometer in the daylight. I just spent $300 for a new head light cluster switch. It still does the same thing.

Loyale Lights On my girl friend's car. Left headlight is dim, and the running lights don't work. I think there's a relay that is acting up. Any ideas? And where do they put the relays on this car. I have replaced the dim headlight bulb, and the new one is also dim. The ground return for that headlight reads 1.8 ohms. Should I just cut the ground wire and attach it to a ground? Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated by both me and her. John

I have a 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix, the rear tires are almost bald, the front tires are measuring a 3. I do plan on replacing them this week. About a week ago my TPMS warning light came on and my DIC told me to check the front left tire, so I checked the front driver tire w/ a digital tire gauge. The digital tire guage is reading 35ish, but the TPMS system is reading between 20 and 24. The only sensor reading a problem is the Front Left Tire. I did check all of them and they are all around 30 to 3

Electrical nightmare Fixing a 1987 MB 190E 2.3. Every time i use the blinker switch, the left blinker causes the hazard lights and the right blinks super fast when using the right blinker.
