car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Chrysler Town & Country

The car was a 2001 Chrysler town and country. Driver's side sliding door will not work in cold weather. It is usually warm in southern la, but in the early mornings while taking my children to preschool, I could not get my son's sliding door to open. It always worked when I took it to the dealer, but several school employees and others have seen that the door does not work either with the electronic key, button on the door itself, or with the overhead button located above the dashboard. Oddly, also only when the weather is cooler, my high beam on my driver's side headlight will not work. The headlights will both come on, but as soon as I depress the button for high beams, the driver's light goes off completely. Is there a correlation since they are both on the driver's side? perhaps something electrical? we bought the vehicle used last September 2004 and almost immediately started having problems with the sliding door as soon as the weather was cooler. I am guessing at the October 20/04 date, but I know I started having problems in oct of last year shortly after we'd purchased the vehicle. I had problems virtually every early morning in the winter from oct-Feb, and the same thing just started again as the mornings are once again cooler (cooler in baton rouge means around 45 f). The diagnostics they have run at my Chrysler dealership keep coming up empty and they must think it's all in my head. At least 2 other mechanics from where I have my oil changed have witnessed the problems with the doors and lights firsthand, but never those at the dealership. Is this happening to others with the same make and model?. This issue happened on October 20, 2004.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Nissan Xterra

The car involved was a 2000 Nissan Xterra. I saw a news release today where Honda is recalling some vehicles due to heat buildup in the ip causing the ip lights to go out. This has been a persistent problem for years in both my 1996 Nissan 200sx and my 2000 Nissan Xterra. Usually I just have to find the dimmer dial on the dash somewhere on the left under the steering wheel and adjust it a bit to get the lights to come back on, but the switch is always very hot when I touch it. No accidents or fires have resulted in my experience. This issue happened on 06/16/2004.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Nissan Titan

I own a 2004 Nissan Titan with 3000 miles on it. I have inadvertently turned the headlights off while driving at night at least 10 times in this time frame. The reason for this is a combination of a large twist knob and a weak detent to hold the switch in the on position. This is not an isolated defect in my switch, rather a design defect of all Titan switches as I have looked at other new ones on the Nissan dealer's lot. The problem is that the on-off twist knob is located at the end of the turn signal switch so when you either turn the turn signal on or flip the switch forward or back with your fingers to change the lights from bright to dim the switch is very easy to turn off by accident. When this happens on a dark road it is very alarming and I feel may eventually lead to a serious accident. The twist knob is so large in comparison to other switches of this type that there is tremendous leverage to accidently twist it if you dont grap it exactly in the center. Nissan has told me there is nothing wrong and I am the only one but I don't believe it. I own an automobile repair business and have a great deal of technical knowledge and sincerly believe this to be a serious design flaw in this switch which will likely lead to someone losing their life as this truck becomes more popular. This high/low beam switch issue occurred March 31, 2004.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Suzuki Forenza

The car is a 2005 Suzuki Forenza. My complaint about my Suzuki,forenza is that I have taken it to the dealership at least twice for a sensor problem. My sensor for my day time lights constantly goes out and comes on whenever it wants. The second time I took it to the dealership they said they put on a new one but even now it constantly goes out then back on again; I cannot take it back to have it looked at because they say my warranty is over; also my low beam headlights no longer work because of a wiring problem the exists. Someone looked at the problem and said it was a wire that lays against a part of the engine that goes to the low beam lights and it burned out. One day I notice smoke coming from the engine and I thought it needed oil. The next day I had no low beam lights to use. I can only use my high beam now because the dealer said my warranty ran out. This car is only 2 years old and I bought it with only 5 miles on it. Those wiring should not be defective as of yet. I found out from a CO-worker who has a Forenza is having the same problem; he cannot use his low beam lights anymore and his warranty is over; he has to use his high beam also. Phone interview update (8-may-07): the complainant indicated that sometimes even the high beams do not work now. This high/low beam switch issue occurred Saturday, April 22, 2006.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Toyota Prius

The vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Prius. Hid headlamp bulbs failed within weeks of each other and with less than one year of service on the vehicle. It took almost three weeks to get a replacement bulb after the first failure. During that time the second bulb failed while I was driving at night. After the bulbs were replaced I realized that the hid headlight "shutters" in the headlight assembly system intermittently failed to properly shift back to low beam from high beam. This problem occurs on the drivers and passenger side. This can result in blinding oncoming traffic and to avoid the problem I can only drive with low beams. Toyota advised that both headlight assemblies are defective and must be replaced. Toyota has not acknowledged that other 2006 Prius owners are having problems with their headlights although many customers have posted similar complaints on the internet. This high/low beam switch issue occurred December 15, 2007.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The vehicle is a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta. I signaled with my right turn signal for a right-hand turn, suddenly the turn signal stopped flashing (not the quick flashing & clicking for a burnt out bulb), the light stayed on. Tried the left turn signal and the same thing happened. Kept trying them and would not work. Suddenly began operating. The hazard lights did not work either. After repeated attempts, the lights unexpectedly began working. I continued driving, when I signaled another right-hand turn the again the signal repeated the previous failure. I immediately contacted the auto repair shop that I use and setup an appointment for service three days later. The problem occurred intermittenly between the first occurrance and the service appointment. The service technician could not duplicate the problem immediately but the headlamps would not go to bright. He did eventually have the problem with the turn signals. The end result was to replace the switch: headlam dimmer/turn signal/cruise switch 8l0953513j01c (part #). This is an integrated switch. I have listed the three components separately on the complaint list. This same shop had changed the same switch on an Audi. I do not know if the replaced part would still be available.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Volkswagen New Beetle

The car was a 1998 Volkswagen New Beetle. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 3VWBB61CXW_. This vehicle has had a series of problems since I have owned it. I have always been a Volkswagen enthusiast. So when I saw the New Beetles I was naturally excited and couldn't wait to own one. What I expected was Volkswagens usual excellent quality and value for money. What I got was a vehicle that not only is an inconvenience to drive, but is also a safety concern. This vehicle has had at least 8 major defects. I call them defects because so many others have experienced similar issues with their New Beetles. Keep in mind the vehicle is regularly maintained, and is only at 97,000 miles. 1. Check engine light is on and vehicle stalls or cuts out on a regular basis. 2. The low beams on my headlights always burn out. I change the lights and they just burn out again. I always have to drive instead with my high beams on. 3. My driver side and passenger side windows have fallen into my doors. Meaning that they wont roll up, a loud, noise can be heard when you try. I was told by Volkswagen that they were "aware" of the problem. They even told me that it was because they used plastic clips to hold the windows and they are now replacing with metal clips. Fine and good, but while my windows were down my seats became severely stained. (they stain easy) who's going pay for that??? 4. The window switch that controls the windows going up and down broke off in my hand. 5. The radio tries to load a tape when there isn't one. Hood latch broke, has to be opened with screwdriver now. Thanks vwoa!! 6. Heater motor turns up and down on its own 7. Engine holds high rpms in highway, rapid iol consumption. 8 reverse lights malfunctioned. Questions vwoa? call me, we'll chat 269-986-0996 . It was April 25, 2005 when this high/low beam switch issue occurred.

car   High/low Beam Switch problem of Cadillac DTS

The VIN of the car is 1G6KD57Y16_. The headlights flash-to-pass feature only functioned on 20'06 Cadillac Dts when the headlights were turned on. Also, on all of my previous automobiles the headlights would illuminate and flash-to-pass even though the headlights were not turned on at the time. I demonstrated this to the dealer, and he tried it on a similar vehicle and it did not work either. I consider this an important safety feature and would use it frequently. It was Friday, October 13, 2006 when this high/low beam switch issue occurred.
