1987 gmc headlights want come on help


check for power and grounds at the headlight plug for both lights as you could have 2 burnt out lights, have had this happen a few times. you don`t say if its just the low beams. there are 3 wires one is the ground one is low beam and one is high beam. it could also be the headlight switch that is bad on the headlight circuit only. have had this happen twice. you would have to remove the switch from the dash to gain access to the plug connector to test the wires coming out of the switch, for the headlights. a third thing is it could be the dimmer switch that is bad. myself I would check the dimmer switch first then the headlight plug at the lights then the switch for the headlights.

High beam headlights stuck on replaced switch same problem


It can be issue with headlight switch,but as its already been replaced.Try disconnecting high beam headlight wiring from headlight assembly and reconnect direct external wire from headlight switch to headlight assembly,then by switch see if headlight is getting off and turning on or not.

Low beam headlight drivers side don`t work. high beam it works.


Check tour bulbs first and replace if blown. If OK then check wiring backwards from light to dip switch.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

Ford 2003 Focus. Low beam headlights not working. Hi beam do. Can get low beam to come on if flip between hi and low but don't stay on.


That sounds like a problem with the high beam switch in the low beam position. The contact is bad or the detent retainer isn't keeping the contact engaged.

Headlights


The same bulb in a lot of applications controls both the high and low beam. Generally the low beam portion will burn out and for a short time you will be able to use the high beam only. I can't be certain which headlight switch that you checked, but the most common solution is to replace the headlight bulb. The bulb is on the inside of the headlight lense and is accessible by opening the hood and peeling back the rubber cover that covers up all of the headlamp apparatus. Depending on the model of vehicle they are mounted in there differently. Make sure and change both at the same time. It is generally cheaper to purchase new headlight bulbs as a (2) pack and it never fails if you change one the other will burn out in a week. Hope this helps
