Check relay part  circuit in Fuse Box. Might be relay for headlight is not working. I had come across
the same problem before. If not, might be wiring problem.

Do you have to pull something to turn on your headlight?
If yes, then don't pull it all the way back. You can pull that thing three time.
first pull will make you speedometer and all other things glow
second pull will turn on the HEADLIGHT
and the last (i.e. the third pull) will make your High Beam turn on
Hope this help, I have a 1996 BMW too.

My Ford Falcon 2005 low beam headlights aren't working, however the high beams and park lights work fine. Please help.

The relays are next to your battery. The first one is the horn relay (the yellow one closest to the headlight), then the lo and high beams after that, I forgot which order, and then the starter relay.

Get a freind to check which one clicks when you turn on the high beams (put your finger on it), and swap it over with the one next to it.

Check to see if the headlights work, but the high beams not. If this is the case, the relay is fried. If the high beams are still not working, then check the contacts in the combination switch (on the steering column), or the wiring... this is a bit more difficult to trace, none the less, not that difficult.

Low beams don't work on 1997 Honda Civic

If your high beams work and your low beams do not work... try changing the light bulbs first. The low beams can burn out and the high beams still work.

High beams work low beams dont daylight running lights dont blinkers do changed lamps already whats next

There is a recall on this issue. Call a Suzuki dealership and tell them that your car is having a problem with the low beams and that there is supposed to be a recall on that issue. My girlfriend had that problem and I found the recall information online. When I called the dealer, they asked for the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and said that sure enough, it was in fact under a recall. So they scheduled a repair and we took it in and they did it free of charge. This issue affects all Forenzas from 2004-2007.

Check bulbs and fuse first.
If fuse is OK , there is also a relay that controls chassis and lights.
If it is none of the above, then the low beams switch on instruments must be checked.

Drl and high beams dont work

Check the bulbs -- the daytime running lamps use the highbeams on the resistor -- There are two filliments per bulb one high; one low. If both high beam filliments are out nothing will work....replace bulbs if this is the case.
