I dunno....but nobody seemed to have any answers for this fine, upstanding club member and his issue, so I was just trying to help.

If no BCM, then I assume there is a wire connected to the headlight switch that runs somewhere similar, that may cause a similar issue....that'* why I said my info came from teh '97 FSM :P

When you replaced the switch, did the connector look OK? No burn marks or melted plastic?

I haven't read "check the fuses" yet either so I'd look at that too. If all of the fuses look good then I'd start looking at the Adaptive Lamp Module (ALM). I no longer have my 93 manuals and my 95 and 97 manuals are at Boosty'* so I don't have any reference materials nearby.

I want to thank everyone for there replies. The fuses were my first point of attack. I will
look into the Adaptive Lamp Module. Again thanks for the help. Getting home when its dark makes it hard to work on during the week.

There is light at the end of the tunnel…I think… I have a fuse in slot 14 that keeps burning out. When I replace it before I start the car all my problems are gone. I start the car it blows the fuse. During my testing I ran out of 15 amp fuses so I put in a 25 amp and everything stayed on even after I started the car. I do not want to run the risk of a wiring melt down. If anyone could help me isolate how fuse 14 and the head light switch interact or what could be causing my over load I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Ron

This is a psudo-bump for your thread. I no longer have a 93 service manual and my 95 which is similar is at BillBoost'* house. I will be going there later on today but wanted to bring this forward to see if someone else can take a peek at their manual.

No...but I DO!!! Won't be home until after 7ish though... I'll print off this thread and try to find whatever you are looking for if no one else has by then...
