Headlight Issue

Postby sharki54 » Tue Aug 23, 2016 8:33 pm



I have a 94 SE and sometimes the headlight won't work, when this happens if I put it in reverse the headlight comes on then when I take it out of reverse the headlight goes off again. I don't have a clue where to start. any help in this matter would be a great help. thanks in advance.

try cleaning your start switch, if it sticks in slightly the headlight will not come on. Just one possibility..

Well I will be, that was exactly what the problem was. Something so simple but without good peoples help I am not sure I would have ever figured that out. Once again thanks again.
