More Problems With My Headlight Switch....

From my previous thread here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/d...nside-1480778/


Today with the help of ejschultz, we soldered my headlight switch, fog light switch and dimmer switch, basically the whole module was soldered. We went to go put it back into the Jeep and I still have the same problem.


-As you saw in the video ALL lights are out (dash board, HVAC, GDM, Drive selector [P R N D 2 1], and all my Selec-Trac lights)

-Radio still lights up on its own

-When my head lights are on, in the auto position or manual position, my tail lights DO NOT light up. Got stopped tonight from a LEO to warn me.

-Break lights still light up as normal when you press the break pedal

-When the head lights are in the AUTO position and you tap the breaks, ALL lights that are mentioned in the first part of list and as seen in the video all flicker, turn on and off.

-When the head lights are in the MANUAL position, when I hit the break pedal, none of the above mentioned happens. All lights remain off

-When head light switch remains in the MANUAL position, when you go to open the drivers side door, the chime to let you know that your head lights are still on doesn't go off at all


Erik thinks that maybe my Auto healight relay has gone bad? All the crazy stuff in my list all happens when the headlights are in the AUTO position.

What else can my problem be? Soldering the module didn't work..

This is a real bad problem, I need to get this fixed and have tail lights. Some else please chime in and help???

Nah, 240SX. Almost bought a 300ZX this week, but I prefer having 4 seats and 4 cylinders. (I'm familiar with both though)

Sounds like a pinched or shorted wire.
Check
trailer lights.
Did u try a different headlights switch
Could be in steering wheel area around turn signal hazard warning switch. Or if u had cluster out n got a dash bulb crossed or the plug to the cluster have a bent or loose connection .. i know uve had this for awhile. Did u fix something then this started?

I had trailer lights installed 8/2012.


Never have once taken my cluster out. All bulbs work.


This problem acutally started maybe a week ago. All lights stopped working on Monday, 2/18

Hopefully theres no draining issue there and its just because its been sitting.

Replacing both o2 sensors tomorrow, finally got them in the mai,l waited 2 weeks. Hopefully the old ones arent seized in there...
Sensors came out fine, the stupid *** clips that hold the wiring up to the oil pan was hardest part to remove oddly enough. Not sure if the o2 sensors fixed my p0171 issue yet because the friggin batteries are at 10.5v again today...

Now its one more thing to try to figure out and fix on this money pit. I have no clue why this is happening now all of a sudden but it does not make me happy.

I'm fairly certain there is only one electronic relay for the blinkers and flashers. If there were thermal relays in there, there would be two.

You're right, there's only 1 relay for the flashers (blinker and hazards)

Replacing the o2 sensors fixed the p0171 issue and she runs great. Just have to figure out the battery issue now. See if shes dead tomorrow morning again and go from there.

So much chatting. Continued mocking my xterra roof rack. Have it level to the ZJ roof now, waiting on good weather and a step bit for my drill to mount it.

Xterra roof rack on a ZJ? You've piqued my interest.
