#1: Headlight Problem 1991 Dodge Caravan, Relay?

Posted on 2006-07-10 20:59:41 by jtnospam

1991 Dodge Caravan, When I turn on the headlight switch, the running
lights come on but not the headlights, until I pull the turn indicator
up, and the high beams come on, but only if you hold it, and the lows
never come on. I described the problem to the auto parts store tech and

he recommended that I get a headlight relay, looks like a 1 1/2-2 inch
aluminum cylinder with three prongs sticking out, and I don't even know

where it goes. I'm used to working on my '64 Ford truck, much simpler.
Any ideas?-Jitney

&gt; It sounds like he's describing a turn signal flasher.... Does it look like
&gt; this? <a href="http://auto.howstuffworks.com/turn-signal2.htm" target="_blank">http://auto.howstuffworks.com/turn-signal2.htm</a>

If the 1991 is like my 1993 (similiar body style), the light switch is
located to the left of the instrument cluster. There are three
switches. Top for headlamps, middle for park lamps, and the bottom is
for the 4-way flasher. Are these three switches part of one unit as
Glen describes? The turn signal switch only controls the front wipers
in addition to the turn signals.

Yes but the headlight dimmer switch is part of that switch

Sounds to me like both his low beams are burnt. Have you even checked the
bulbs to make sure that they are not burnt?

I thought about that also but he said &quot;until I pull the turn indicator
up, and the high beams come on, but only if you hold it&quot;. You should not
have to hold the stalk to keep the high beams on unless the switch is bad

But if he is pulling the switch back for high beams, that allows you to
flash the high beams only. You have to push forward to turn on high beams.
That's what I am figuring though. Isn't that how the switch works on that
year?
