Hello, I'm Cam.
Does tilting the column change the headlights?
And the cam sensor is in the base of the distributor under the rotor, 3 pin connector.
tilting steering wheel doesn't help
all wires are connected; about 6mo ago I had no headlights so the dimmer switch was replaced; after that I never had no daytime running lights but didn't want to go days w/o my truck nor the expense of having work re-done so just did w/o. Some time after that I started with this problem. Could this be related and what else can I do at this point.
I am a woman so need a little more help than men, can you tell me how to pull the wire harness (without breaking) so that I can perform this test; also, I see 2 yellow wires not just one.
the 2 yellow wires are next to each other and there is a light green wire but no tan wire (after much disagreement between two of us), there is a dark and light green wire and a dark and light grey wire as well, among other colors of course. the lights do not turn on when yellow and green wires are jumped. How do I check if there is power in the yellow wire?
ok, used the test light with lights on and there is no power to either yellow wire
I figured if switch light turns on the headlights there had to be power, but at your suggestion checked anyway and there is power to thick red wire
what exactly do I need to look for and am I jumping the power from the thick red wire to the thick yellow wire?
using the thick red wire I jumped power to the yellow wire at the dimmer switch and the lights did not come on.
there is no thick yellow wire at the headlight switch the only thick yellow wire
are the ones leading to the dimmer switch
there is only a thin yellow wire on terminal G; jumped power from C to G and headlights did not come on
what main switch??
I jumped power from Terminals G and C at the headlight switch to yellow wire at the dimmer switch and headlights still do not come on
I am jumping terminal G and C at the headlight switch with a test light and wire. The test light is "on" when I jump from terminals G and C to yellow wire in dimmer switch
If that is the case why do the headlights come on at all???
remember there is no tan wire - there is dark grey and light grey
of all the wires in the column that lead to the dimmer switch there is no tan wire - there is a brown (almost rust) and an orange wire but no tan wire.
in 99 there was an old and new body style - I have the old body style, could there be a difference in the wiring due to this.
low nor high beams come on
so what am I looking for now? does this mean the dimmer switch may not be faulty after all?
are pins e11 and e12 the same as the light green and tan wires?
I don't have good access w/o removing some parts and have to go to work so no longer have time to do anything else. How much will I be charged?
