Do I understand correctly, high beam works on both sides, but low beam only one side? If that is correct, check the bulb plug and contacts, clean any corrosion, coat w dielectric grease (available at any parts store). It's much more likely at the connection (plug in) than a wire. If this doesn't help, let me know.

Headlight goes out on one side when high beams are on, when low beams are switched on the opposite headlight goes out.


The bulbs probably have 2 circuits: for low and high beam. Only one circuit is working on each of the bulbs. Replace both bulbs with new ones.

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.

The first thing is to make sure the bulbs are good, if the low beam bulbs are bad the high beams will still work, the first thing is to try new bulbs.Replace the bulbs and then let me know the results.Good day.

2002 Dodge Caravan headlamps: one works on dim the other works on high beam but not together. Also only one daytime running lamp.


Your van has dual diligent headlamp bulbs, that means each headlight has one bulb that serves as high beam and low beam. What has most likely happened is on one side the low beam filament has burnt out, and on the other side the high beam filiment has burnt out. The daytime running lights are just the high beam filament running on reduced power, so if the high beam doesn't work on one side, that same side will have no daytime running light. Replace both headlamp bulbs with matching, good quality bulbs.

Low beam not work !!


replace the headlight bulbs. Usually when the bulbs blow out the low beam blows out first, but the high beams still work. If you want and need both low and high beams to work then replace the headlight bulbs with brand new ones and I garauntee that both low and high beams will work
