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.

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

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?

Low Beam Fuse may be bad.
Low Beam relay position is bad.
Stalk that controls the high/low beams/cruise/lights is bad.
Low beam filament may be bad in both headlamps.
