My lowbeam headlights don't turn on. Even after I replaced a new bulb. My car is a 1990 honda civic.
If your parking lights come on, but not the headlights, and the bulbs and fuses are fine, it's the switch itself. This is an easy fix. You can get another headlight stalk at a junkyard out of another Civic, or buy one new on eBay or at a dealership. To replace it, unscrew teh trim on the steering column (take the plastic covers off the column, from below), and then unscrew the switch module at the base of the stalk that has the headlight switch on it. The switch will then hang from its wiring harness. Simply unplug it, plug in the new one (test it to be sure it turns the lights on), and then reassemble the trim after mounting the switch. It will probably take you all of 10 minutes to do it - nice to have fixes like that:)
