Question about 1990 Mazda MX-5

1990 Miata low beams work, high beams only work when switch is held down

I just bought a 1990 Miata and I am having trouble with the lights. The high beams only come on when I hold the lever forward, and the reverse lights never shut off. If the key is turned on, the lights are on.

SOURCE: 1992 Mazda PU no highbeams

It could be both lamps are burnt out.try replacing the lamps. Or checking the voltage at the lamp plugs. If the plugs have current with the light switch on. Then the lamps are bad.

SOURCE: 1990 Mazda Media high beam lights dont work

That is going to be a bad multi-function switch, which is the actual signal switch and highbeam switch. Is not too hard to replace if you have basic hand tools and some ambition.

I can't get my brights to stay on without having to hold them on . What might be the issue


I find that to energise the high beam momentarily (to warn oncoming motorists) I pull back on the switch lever but to change to full beam on I push down on the lever until it clicks as the low /high beam is the back and forward motion of the light switch

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.
