    Except, when I turn on headlights and left signal, my wipers come on...

    The left headlight and high beam flash at low intensity as well.

Try the headlight relay. It is behind the kick panel directly in front of the driver. It might be shorting on the wiper relay which is in the same location.

2008 chevy express high beams don't work when i pull back on the multi switch to turn on the high beams the headlights go completely out


Your dimmer switch (lever you pull to switch lights) is probably bad. Before you replace pull and visually insect all your fuses. Some late model GMs have separate fuses for hi beams and lo beams.

Headlights both went out last night. High beams


There is a relay that controls the headlights, volvo calls it a step relay. You will have to check that power is getting to this relay. If not, check all fuses and wiring. If power supply checks out ok, you may have to replace the relay. Let me know if you need any more info or a wiring diagram.

My 87 k5 blazer headlights don't turn on when the car is started and running any more... all 4 headlights turn on fine when I pull the lever all the way out for high beams


The vehicle should not have to be running for head lights to burn.If high beams work,then the low beam head lights could be burned out,even though they light up with high beams.The dimmer switch,can be the problem if the head lights only work on high beam.

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
