What is the location of the circuit breaker for headlights in engine? The lights will not turn on. The manual said there was a circuit breaker in the engine compartment that would cut out when there was a power surge. The bulbs have been replaced and the lights still do not work.


Try looking in the fuse box you may find them there.....hope this helps....cheers ... 1999 Buick Regal

2000 Mitsubishi Galant, wipers not working...what is the location of the relay/circuit breaker for the wipers? 20 amp fuse in dash fuse box is ok, swapped out switch on steering wheel and wiper motor with ones from another car, but no power to wiper motor. Found reference to a wiper motor circuit breaker in a wiring diagram for a 1999 Galant but no reference to it's location! It is not to be found in the relay box in the engine compartment. Thanks!, Dave.

On a 1997 GMC Sierra 6cyl; The headlights will not turn on. The courtesy lights work fine & these are the same lights as the headlights. I've replaced the headlight switch and have the same problem! The interior fuse box does not indicate a headlight fuse to check. I can't find it. Is there a circuit breaker or ??? I'm overlooking? Thanks for any help, you can provide...Richard Ritter.

Both headlights went out on my 1988 dodge ramcharger. The manual said it doesn't have a fuse because it has a circuit breaker in the switch. I changed the switch and that didn't fix it so i'm it could be the ground wire. Which wire is it and are there any devices between the lamp and the switch?

Power windows where can i locate any kind of fuse, fuseable link, and or circuit breaker for the passenger side power window. i have no power going to switch i replaced power window motor with new.

1988 Dodge Omni. I have no park lights or dash lights. I have replaced the fuse multiple times. I have the Chilton's and have traced the hot wire from the headlight switch to the battery with no errors found. I removed the headlight switch and fuse still blows. The wiring diagram in the manual shows that all electrical draws occur after the switch in the circuit. But with the switch out of the circuit the fuse still blows with no electrical draw...

Power windows and blower motor stopped working at exactly the same time.

According to the wiring diagram pwr windws circuit breaker 25A is a Hot in Run only. I checked my blower motor with

96 Dodge Caravan headlights stay on when switch is off. Replaced both headlight relays, now headlights stay on for about 3 minutes after switching them off, but the timing seems irregular, and sometimes they try to switch off , but snap back on for a few seconds and then finally switch off. Is this normal? Is there a timing circuit somewhere that needs new parts?


How about testing the switch. Remove it see what happens.\015\012If not you got a short and get back to me and I'll tell you how to look for one. ... 1996 Dodge Caravan

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. The headlights will not turn off, even if the headlight switch is turned off and the car is off. I've even removed the headlight switch and the headlights remain on. The headlights can toggle on/off before I turn the engine on, but after I turn the engine on the headlights remain on until I unhook the battery. The same time this started happening, I also lost power to the tail lights and dash lights. The wiring, fuses and circuits all work as I can get them to light up


I think this is one of those models that has the running lights. Running lights are the lights that come on as soon as the vehicle is turned on. Ford had a lot of electrical problems in their cars from 97-01, especially Tauruses and Explorers. There ... 1999 Ford Taurus

Headlights not working - Removed the Circuit Breaker to take it in to get a new one and my fog lamps quit working but only until I shut the car off and turned it back on. Replaced the Circuit Breaker (with the same one that I took out) and dash lights started working but still no head lights? I was going to replace the Circuit Breaker with a new one but when the fog lights quit working, I thought it might be an electrical problem. What are your thoughts???

Headlight problem I have lost power to the headlights of my 240SE Torslanda. The flasher still works and the stepper relay is OK. There is no +ve supply going to the full/dip side of the stepper relay. I have checked the headlight selector switch and it is OK. Does anyone know if there's a headlight relay between the selector switch and the stepper relay .. and if so where is it located ? The diagram which I have does not show a relay in between but the yellow wire (+ve as mentioned) on the step


Yeah,\015\012\015\012There was a relay between the headlight selector switch and the dip/high beam stepper relay which was not on the circuit diagram. \015\012Its a bit difficult to access and is right under the dash on the far left ... 1993 Volvo 240

... 2003 Chevrolet Tracker

Relay There is no relay in the box for the headlights. The headlights are on a large 40 amp fuse. We have noticed a buzzing sound for about 2 seconds when we pull the light switch to turn them on. Could the relay switch for the headlights be in another location?


Ok, I did more research you are right they don't have a relay, just the I thought a 20A fuse, If you have 12V at the light socket. Then it sounds like you have a ground problem. Check your grounds make sure there isn't corrosion etc. Clean them up I ... 1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited

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!!!


I have a 940se 1991 and it has the same problem. Its the relay. It is located behind the pass kick panel on left side if sitting in car. Its a big black relay and has an a and e printed on the outside. Its very expensive to replace new 100 to 150 dol ... 1994 Volvo 940
