The headlight problems continue...
My 2006 GP now has 175000+ miles on it and the problem with the headlights continues. Occasionally the headlights will just go out but the car doesn't recognize that the lights are off. Everything else works fine. I have twice replaced the relay in the fuse box and now the daytime running lights were staying on. I took it to an "auto electric" specialist who could not figure out the problem but did succeed in charging me $350. I took it to the dealer who spent hours looking but again, no solution. Now the DRL are staying on after the car is off. At least the dealer didn't charge me anything. The relay was hot as hell so I again replaced it which shut off the lights after the car was off but something is frying these relays and I have no idea what. You might think 175000 miles is time to go, but the car is in absolutely perfect shape, I have done all maintenance since brand new and I am not ready to give up on it just yet. Any ideas would be appreciated as I think there must be something in the under hood fuse box causing the relay to heat up to the point of malfunctioning.
Thanks for any ideas!
My 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has has a couple of issues since I bought the car last week. I can't drive it at night anymore because I don't have tail lights, I have brake lights, just no tail lights. Along with the tail lights my entire speedometer, tachometer, radio, AC/heat, etc. is pitch black. The first night I noticed it, the lights went on and off a couple of times while driving, but not exactly when I hit a bump or turned hard, but now they stay off. Along with this, my car chime keeps binging even after I take the keys out. Another problem I'm having is 9 MPG, I know I need a downstream o2 sensor, but my car says it's running lean which means less gas right?So basically, I would like to know if it's an electrical component that goes bad, or if there's a short somewhere (ugh) and if my o2 sensor will double/triple my mileage.Thanks.
