Check ur fuses, then maybe ur bulbs are finished. Have they been replaced at all?

On the fuse cover, it usually tells u which fuse does what.

When u press the switch for the high beams, do u see the high beam indicator light up in the dash cluster? If so, highly doubt it's the switch.

2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD, left side low and high beams out, new bulbs, fuses good. No power at the sockets. Could this be the high/low switch on the column?


It shouldn't be the high/low beam switch, as that switches the high/low beam relays. One high beam relay supplies power for both sides, one for low beam, both sides. If you were to lose switch function or a relay, you would lose the high beams or the low beams, but not for just one side. It would be interesting to probe the fuses with a test light and see if you're getting power to and through them. If you are, the problem would be between the fuse box and the headlight, if your not getting power to the left head light fuses, the problem will be in the fuse box. Good luck!

My low beams wont turn on. only my high beams


low beams are on with the high beams does NOT mean the bulbs are good. The low beams have two separate filaments, one that lights on low beam and one that lights on high beam. That's why the low beams have three terminals but the high beams have only two.It's entirely possible that both low beam filaments have burned out. If the bulbs really are good, then the dimmer switch is the most likely problem.

My low beams do not work. If I put on the high beams both the low and high beams are on.


Both highs and lows coming on when flipping to highs is normal. (You low beams are dual filament) Now low beam issue is either "lo beam fuse" in your fuse box or dimmer switch (switch used to flip between high/low beams. Check your fuses first, it their good then you need a new dimmer switch.

Low beams don't work; High beams fine. Not the


the high beam switch is at fault
A new one is needed
The directional lever you pull up on to switch to high and low connects to a rod which is going to the high beam switch at the mid section of the steering coluum. It is a headache to change for your on your head replacing this part

GMC truck light issue: My high beam / low beam switch is built into my blinker. To replace it costs hundreds. Currently, my lights are stuck on high beam. I would like to put them on low beam permanently...


well as a tech i dont recomend it but all you got to do is swap the wires on the headlamps at the bulb you will see 3 wires one is a ground the other feeds low beam the other high beam . take a test light and find the one thats hot and cut it and connect it to the other blade , leave only one wire on the low beam terminal so you dont short it out .

1993 corsica--low beams work fine, no high beams.


Check the fuses under the hood...chances are it's one of them....there's not much left to check after that....check the fuses inside the car as well...it might be the high beam switch is bad that switches the low beams to high beams inside the car.

My headlights dont work,.all other lights are fine though,.is it the fuses or the bulbs? im not sure what fuses they would be,.there seem to be different ones for the same thing


do your flash to pass lamps light when you pull the stalk towards you? If yes, the bulbs are ok.
Do the hig beams work?
Your headlamps have sepaerate fuses for each headlamp and you have a low beam relay and a high beam relay under the hood in the black box.
If everything is out, I suspect a bad headlamp switch.
Check car-part.com and look on page with * for cheapest price.

Your owner manual will identify fuses & relays.

PS, You did not recently instal high current bulbs did you? If yes, put originals back in.

HEADLAMPS

The voltage is supplied to the lamp switch through a fuse. This fuse is located in the central junction box in the left-hand footwell.
When the headlamps are switched on, a voltage is supplied to the high beam/low beam switch and to the low beam relay. The relay for the low beam is located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
If the high beam/low beam switch is set to "low beam", then a voltage is supplied through the low beam relay to the low beam part of the headlamp assembly. The left and right-hand low beams are fused separately. The fuses are located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
If the high beam/low beam switch is set to "high beam", then a voltage is supplied through the high beam relay to the high beam part of the headlamp assembly. The left and right-hand high beams are fused separately. The fuses are located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
