    My headlights/fog lights dont work as well. I have replaced the bulbs, headlight switch as well. I am out of options. The only way for my lights to come on is if I HOLD in the brights on the blinker switch. My tail lights work along w/ my blinkers so I dont see it being electrical from the wiring. Any other suggestions?

    How strange. Went to turn on the headlights on the 04 Stratus today and they didn't come on. No high or low beam. Everything else on the car works. Checked all the fuses under the hood by swapping them out, same with relays. Even checked the fuses under the dashboard although they are independent left/right high/low. Obviously there is a common OPEN for the headlights. The turn signal, dimmer, high beam flasher switch appears to function in all other positions and modes and doesn't seem suspect; however, I have no way to check it. Just strange! Any one else?

    I have the same problem with my 1994 Dodge Ram Truck. I replaced the dimmer switch,and the bulbs and now don't have wipers,brake lights or head lights. I checked all fuses and relays but still can't get them to work. I'm clueless.

I had the same problem. The solution to this is something called the turn signal/highbeam switch, located in your steering column. This switch has an actuator of some sort that goes bad after a while. It doesn't allow the actuator to turn back into regular headlight mode, instead disabling it. I went to my local junkyard and replaced it. Everything works now. Here is a link to anyone looking to solve their problem -

I have yet to purchase the switch. I plan on having it fixed within 2 weeks. I will post back when I replaced the item and confirm if it was fixed.

High beam headlights don't work, changed the bulbs, and checked the fuses, help

This is going to be a problem with your light switch or dimmer switch. Replace the light switch and see if that resolves the issue.

1999 grand am. low beams dont work. i checked all fuses and relays. ideas????

Lets start by checking the fog lamps. Turn the headlights on, switch to low beam, turn on the fog lights and see if they come on. If the foglights don't work, then you don't have voltage on the low beam circuit to the BCM. If you do have foglights, then the low beam circuit is providing voltage to the BCM.
By determining if the foglights work or don't work we will be able tell what side of the circuit we need to work on.
Let me know.
