Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

High beams not working...

My 1994 c280 headlights will only work in the low beam position, not the high beams. I found a bad right high beam fuse, checked all the other fuses which were good, replaced this bad one but this didn't solve the problem. I'm thinking it might either be the tree on the steering column, the bulbs themselves which may have blown their high beam capabilities or some type of headlight relay that I may be unaware of. Any thoughts about these conclusions or any of your own I may not have thought of?

More likely to be the high beam relay if it is affecting both headlights.

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

Prius high beam lights work but low beam lights do not work?


On a 2008 Prius, If both High beams work but only one side has working low beams, then it is most likely a fuse. So before breaking your knuckles to change the bulb, check the fuse first. I found out the hard way as my mom distressed to me that her drivers side headlights were out. So without checking to see if low and high were working, I proceeded to remove and replace the bulb - ouch! There are 4 10 amp fuses that protect the circuits for low/high beam function. They are under the hood in the fuse box on the drivers side and they are marked on the box cover. Check them before changing the bulb.

At the fuse panel, the left headlight low beam is protected by 10A fuse 21 and the high beam is protected by 10A fuse 19. The right headlight low beam is protected by 10A fuse 20 and the high beam is protected by 5A fuse 3.

there are fuses for each light, high and lo beam. the grounds are grounded at all times, I dont know what you mean by open seeking. its wired like every other car. Right low beam is fuse 21 Red/White wire should be hot if fuse is good. I dont know what you mean by hooking low beam connector to battery? check fuses.

I only have high beam headlights. I have replaced the light bulbs and checked the fuses. All the other lights work.


about troubleshooting your headlights on your vehicle. I would isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illuminates with the headlight switch on. ---- Also check the wires, and check the fuse for your low beams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.
Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
There is something to check. Does the low beam relay click when you turnt he low beams on?
if it does not click then
Then find the BCM at the base of the steering column. In there find the grey connector and in there, find the pink/white wire in terminal A4. Use a wire to jump that wire to ground. IF the low beams come on, then it is likely the BCM is bad.
Also check a bad wire between the fuse block and the BCM. before replacing the BCM . Start under the fuse block. This is the fuse block under the hood.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My passenger side low beam headlight is out. the driver side low beam headlight works fine. I replaced the bulb and the headlight still doesn't work. What should I look at next?


Check the fuse. There are seperate fuses for right and left. You dont mention if the high beam works for that side? If it does, the fuse is good. The GREEN wire at the bulb is the ground for the low beam. If that wire has power, then the ground is bad. If the high beam works, the hi'lo beam switch is good, and there is a problem between that headlight and the Engine Compartment Junction Block

The high beams on my 1994 Jeep Cherokee work, but the low beams don't. The fuses seem to be okay. Any ideas what could cause this?


u should start by checking the bulbs, sometimes it is hard to tell your low beam bulbs are bad until they are both out, if they are both good try wiggling the headlight dimmer switch between high and low beam functions to see if the switch is just worn out. if neither of these presents the problem then u may have an electrical issue that should be diagnosed by a technician

Headlights wont work


Fuse 22 and fuse 23 are left and right low beam headlamp fuses located in the PDC. 23 and 24 are high beam fuses. There is also a low beam and a high beam relay in PDC as well. If no headlights work I would check for main switch or multifuction switch (wiper/high beam) since each light has its own fuse and relay.

1994 Mercedes c280 high beams not working...


At first 1994 C280 high beams began to not connect regularly when stick pushed forward, then not at all. Drove high beams by pulling and holding stick back towards steering wheel until that stopped working, too. Shop said the turn signal switch was at fault-- had seen it many times before with W202; about $160 to replace. Haven't done it yet, but should be an easy fix?
