Q: Cannot find the headlight relay location note: does not have automatic headlights

asked by on

Headlights do not come on- fuses good as are the multi-function switch and light switch- trying to find the location of the headlight relay

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you do not have automatic lights then you do not have a relay. In the instrument panel fuse box, the head light switch and fuse 10 supply power to a multi-function switch which sends power directly to the lights. The multi-function switch is likely to be your problem as they it is a common problem. Look for a melted connector attached to it and replace the connector and switch. If you are still having trouble, YourMechanic provides a light inspection service that can help you resolve the issue.
