This is usually referred to as multifunction switch. As it runs turn signals high beams and so forth. The headlights are on there two if i am thinking right. if so ask for a headlight switch.

You knew the name of it, it's in your question, highbeam switch! Ahhh... the good old days... the highbeam switch was foot operated, remove 2 screws, unplug wire, that was all there was to fixing it.

Why does highbeam indicator not turn off?


It's most likely a fault with the instrument cluster caused by condensation. If I understand correctly all the actual lights are doing what they should. The cluster gets info from the lights (indirectly), and that data should be Ok. My guess is a short or bridged connection on the cluster itself caused by condensation. Have a diagnostic run on it just to confirm there are no error codes.

I can open the trunk, doors and glove box with my key. But not the ignition. The car has been sitting for several months. Solution? 1987 420SEL Mercedes.


Rock the steering wheel back and forth as you gently try to turn the key.

Could also be the ignition is worn - also try the same with the key flipped over. A tiny spray of WD40 in the ignition would be the next thing I'd try.

1995 Buick Riviera ignition locks up and I can't get it unlocked for up to an hour of trying to move the steering wheel back & forth like the book says. Does this mean I need a new ignition switch? Someone...


Probably not the actual switch. The switch is located at the base of the steering column. The key cylinder can wear and not function properly, which also controls the release of the steering wheel.

Highbeams work, low beams do not. wipers only work when highbeams are on. highbeams work but only when you HOLD the turn signal lever towards the steering wheel. all other lights work. relay switch or...


The problem is most likely your cars multi function switch. That is the switch that controls your blinkers, dimmer, and everything else. If you change the switch that should solve your problem.

Headlight mulfunction


I am actually having the same issue. I find that jiggling the light wand and pulling it away from the steering wheel will give me more consistent results. Not to say this is a permanent solution, but at least you can drive at night.

Headlights go out


If your Highbeam Switch is on your streering colum (turn signal lever) Thats where I would start too look! It could be the wires to the highbeam switch. I had that happen on my ford. But if the highbeam switch is on the floor, check for a bad circut connection and if that checks ok it might be your main headlight switch! Even though you may not loose your highbeams, your main headlight power still runs through that highbeam switch, and being on the colum thats why the would start to function when you move the shifter.

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 and my headlights go out for no reason. My highbeams seem fine so if I have to drive at night I have to drive around holding my highbeams on. Nobody can figure out the problem. I really need help on this. I need to drive my car at night and can't.
