Reported on Sept 01, 1997


ON SEP 1ST L997 I WAS DRIVING WITH MY WIFE AT NIGHT AT ABOUT 65MPH. I FLICKED THE HI BEAM LEVER AND HAD A TOTAL BLACKOUT. I SWITCHED BACK TO LO BEAM AND THE LO BEAM CAME ON. I TRIED TWICE MORE AND EACH TIME TOTAL DARKNESS. THE DEALER REPLACED SWITCH # 1995405 ($130.75). ON MARCH 2ND 1999 I HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM.. HOWEVER, LATER ON THAT TRIP THE HI BEAMS DID GO ON, BUT AFTER A SHORT IME FLICKERED AND AGAIN TOTAL DARKNESS. I SWITCHED TO LO BEAM AND THE LIGHTS CAME ON. THIS TIME THE DEALER REPLACED 2 SWITCHES #L995405 ($152.00) AND #26005936($110.46) (TOTAL BILL ($339.63) A FEW NIGHTS LATER WE EXPERIENCED THE IDENTICAL PROBLEM - TOTAL DARKNESS WHEN I SWITCHED TO HI BEAMS. THE DEALER HAD THE CAR FOR SEVERAL DAYS BUT COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM. HE FINALLY GAVE UP. I REPORTED THE PROBLEM TO PONTIAC WITH A PHONE # GIVEN ME BY THE DEALER. THEY TOOK DOWN THE INFORMATION, BUT I HAVE NEVER HEARD FROM THEM. *AK
