No low beam, headlight on warning sounds w/lights on auto with key out

Headights work on highbeam only, no lowbeam at all, fog lights come on when switched to low beam as they should when turned on. The "headlight on" warning sounds when lights are set on auto and key out of ignition. Must turn headlights to off position to stop warning sound. This just suddenly happened yesterday.

My 2001 s10 drivers side low beam headlight seems to work on automatic during the day , but not work at night on auto or switch on ?


The daytime lights run off the highbeam circuit on reduced voltage. If the lowbeam is not operational, take a look at the plug at the headlight and inspect for looseness. If tight, inspect for a constant ground and a 12v power supply with the headlights turned on low beam at the headlight connector. repair a necessary

Low beam headlights sometime will not go on, or go off after using highbeams.


low beam not working could be relay or bad contact at stork control. Fog lights should only work with park lights on. not supposed to be on with headlights like in the movies. This is illeagle in australia to have head lighs and fog lights on together as well as being dangerous to other motorists

03 ion lowbeams wont work highbeams do have


The dark blue wire is the ground wire for the low beams and your pink is the ground for the high beams.

When you touch that wire to ground the lights should come on. If not there is a short/break in the wire somewhere

Double check your pink wire to confirm that it is supposed to be a ground signal.

My low beams don't work but my highbeams do?


replace the bulb, highbeam and lowbeam use different filaments (on the same bulb) and lowbeam get used much more hence blow first 99% of the time leaving only a working set of highbeams

My left headlight highbeam light works and the lowbeam don't why


the filament on the low beam burnt out. but the high beam didn't. You have a filament for each. 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam in the same light bulb. You need a new head light.

No headlamps on 97 Mountaineer.


Buy 1 bulb and insert in each socket one at a time. If the low beam does not work on either side you know it is not because of the bulb. Then you will have 1 extra bulb for emergencies. Ask at autoparts about a headlight relay for lowbeam. When you wrote that highbeams work on pullback you did not say if they stay on high. You have "Flash to Pass" for highbeam which can be a different circuit. The automatic headlight switch is yet another set of contacts to go bad. You should set "auto" to off so you are not fighting this feature when testing. Good Luck
