Having problems with your 1988 Mitsubishi Galant ?

Have an 89 Mitsubishi Galant. Parker lights were left on overnight and killed the battery. Now it has tail lights and number plate light but no front parkers or headlights at all. All other systems are functioning normally. I hear a relay click when turning on the parkers but nothing when switching to headlights. The diagram on the fuse box in the engine bay shows a relay for "high beam" but not one for the headlights overall.

99 chevy 1500 with DRL feature; headlights won't come on when truck is started. Headlights can't be turned on manually either. Checked ambient light sensor, relay switch and fuses. Parking, turn signals, brake lights and fog lights all work. Have read the DRL disable suggestions but nothing about headlights failing to coming on, Ambient light sensor appears to work fine.

I have no running lights on my 1996 F150. I have chased wires as best I can, replaced the headlight switch. Headlights work but 30a fuse blows as soon as I turn them on. Turn signals and brake lights work. No dash lights or buzzer. Is there a relay somewhere that can cause this? I don't have a wiring diagram either. Thank You


If you have trailer lights make sure you don't have a short in the connector or harness. You obviously have a short somewhere after the fuse. Try unlpugging each running light. to see if its in the light connecter. also check the side markers ... 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab

I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. The turn signals/parking lights work, but the headlights DO NOT. I replaced the headlights and fuses but no luck. I cannot find an actual diagram of where the headlight relay is to replace it, so I need help. I am not an electrician, so tracing the wire will be a moot point. The wires look grounded and nothing seems out of the ordinary. As an FYI, the rear lights and brake lights all work, it is only the headlights that are not.

Headlights I have a very similiar problem, I had left my headlights on one evening and killed the battery. I had boosted it, got it started and discovered the lights won't turn on. Only way they go on is if you pull back on the highbeam switch (signal switch). I have checked fuses, relays, nothing wrong..


This, to me, seems like a cruel coincidence. You're going to have to remove the knee pad from under the steering column because that is where your high/low switch is located. You'll need a 12 volt testlight available almost everywhere.Make sure you c ... 1996 Dodge Intrepid

If my dash lights, running lights and tail lights aren't working, and my headlights are dim and only getting 1 watt of power. The combo switch (headlights, running lights, turn signals) is working, the relay is clicking, but the running light wires are not getting power coming out out of the relay. Also the radio sometimes doesn't work and either turning the ignition on and off or just turning the key while the car was running would make it come back on. Is there any possibly way it could be
