The headlights only come on when you activate the high beams. Whats up with that? All ten fuses in the small fuse box were replaced today with new ones. Is there another fuse box?

The turn signals only light up, but do not flash to indicate your turn. Why?

Verra nice, someone in my town has a blue one in excellent shape. That's the only one I've ever seen.

Your signal switch might be dead/dying. My ex-boyfriends car did the same thing, the signal just got slower and slower until eventually it just stayed on. I replaced the signal switch with the hazard switch for a temp fix for him and it worked like a charm.

The headlights? Replace the bulbs? I know sometimes people's headlights go out but when they turn their beams on they work....I don't see why that would happen to four. Wiring?

Now I cannot get the parking lights to come on all.

Hell fucking yes...i love it.

So now the parking and tail lights will not come on. The signals are flaky. Headlights still only come on under high beams.

Hazzards still function.

I did, however, use the larger turn signal bulbs in the front (clear) parking lights. They are normally a smaller bulb that is clear. I wanted amber bulbs and couldn't get that size. Would that affect the lights? Fuses aren't blown.

Is that rust or just dirt on the PS quarter and door jamb? Looks nice otherwise though.

As for the lights I'd start with wiring. It might just be that the headlights aren't getting enough power untill you hit 'em with the extra wattage from the high beams. Could also be a weak/faulty switch like a certain wrenchen female said above. Or a combination of both with bad wiring at the switch. Thats the trouble with older cars. Wires fall apart. I'll rue the day I have to rewire my 6g. *Goes and grabs shotgun*

I just don't understand how it worked the other day and now doesn't.

Could putting larger bulbs in the marker lights make a difference?

It could cause your car is uber old, those wires are old and you may of just pushed the limit on them by installing those bigger bulbs.

I'm going to take out the big bulbs and see if it works that way.

nice, im thinking if I could find a first gen I would buy it, no matter how much work it needs!

I've seen the 3G mags done and don't like it with this car. I'm keeping it stock.

It's numbers matching as it is.

No one with any ideas on the lights?
